1955 Cadillac Coupe deVille. Magnificent unrestored example. Classic White with original Turquoise leather and brocade cloth interior with matching carpets. Original 5.4 litre V8 with power steering, power brakes, electric windows, original radio, autronic eye headlights, Kelsey Hayes style chrome wire wheels. Showing just under 3000 miles which one assumes is 103,000 miles as she is over 60 years old ( but looks like a 3000 mile car in this condition ). Virtually show condition as she is mirror straight with beautiful chromework and runs whisper quiet. Drives beautifully. Must be one of the finest 55 Coupes available for sale anywhere, a very pretty car.

Imported from dry State Nevada circa 2015. Very pretty and a solid useable car. Modern stereo plus upgraded modern comfortable reclining seats fitted making it a pleasure to sit in and comfortable to drive. Has some receipts from America plus a large pile of bills and MOTs since arrival here plus all of the MOT tests. Superb bodywork and chromework. Tax exempt of course and technically MOT exempt but nevertheless has an MOT until March 2022.

1967(F) Lotus Elan S3 Spyder DHC. Ford Monaco Red with Black interior, Walnut dashboard and Black soft top. This stunning Elan was owned by the last owner since 1980 and was the subject of a more than 20 year body-off chassis rebuild. This was an extremely personal, high quality restoration and the owner carried out many period desirable upgrades. He had the full Spyder Convertible conversion carried out, Spyder plastic coated chassis, Vegantune stage G3 150 BHP engine fitted, Spyder nickel plated suspension and sliding drive shaft conversion, Koni adjustable shock absorbers, stainless steel exhaust system, steering rack and gearbox also rebuilt by Vegantune, new differential, electric windows, slightly flared wheelarch lips over polished period knock-on Wolfrace alloys, modern CD stereo etc. The car was bare shell repainted from the original Orange to the 1960s period colour Ford Monaco Red.
The car has only covered about 5000 miles since the rebuild was completed in 2002 with total mileage from new only around 70,000.
We have a huge history folder with all of the bills going back 40 years and all of the old MOTs ( current MOT runs until October 2019 ) plus a large batch of photographs documenting the restoration including the show detailed rolling chassis.
If you are a purist wanting a completely unmodified factory standard ( if there is such a thing on Elans ) car this might not be for you, however, if you want a very well sorted, well prepared, superb looking and driving car this may well be for you. Paint is still excellent with some minor stress cracks to be expected on a 20 year old respray of a fibreglass car but the chassis and suspension are still in show condition.

Price now substantially reduced from £ 29,995 to £ 24,995

1999(T) Mercedes A160 automatic. Metallic Deep Sea Blue with Light Grey leather. 7700 YES 7700 miles from new, must surely be unique. Switchable automatic, power steering, ABS braking, traction control, air-bags, electric windows, air-conditioning, electric and folding mirrors, Mercedes Audio10 CD stereo, alloy wheels, remote alarm / central locking with 2 keys. Originally sourced in Japan in 2017 ( where it was a 1 owner car and stored unused for many years ) with a genuine 9400 km ( 5800 miles ) at time of purchase there. Honestly it still looks like a new car inside. We doubt if there could be another Mercedes A class of this model left with such low mileage and so original. Possibly a future collector’s piece ?

Genuine original Hemi 426 car from new. From our own private collection. For the dedicated Mopar collector.


1966(D) Plymouth Satellite Hemi 426, Chassis Number RP23H61290202. Very rare Pillarless 2 door Hardtop finished in her original colour scheme of ZZ1 Citron Gold Metallic ( a delightful period Light Metallic Green ) with matching correct Citron Gold premium interior with vinyl bucket seats and centre console ( so far 1 of only 3 documented in this colour scheme by Galen Govier ). This is a genuine original HEMI car, NOT A CLONE and winner of the 2014 European Mopar Nationals ‘Best of Show’ trophy. Introduced in 1965 as the top of the range model of Plymouth's B-series mid-size Belvedere line-up, the Satellite became available with Chrysler's legendary 'Hemi' 426ci (7.0-litre) V8 engine as an option for 1966. Adding around $1,000 to the list price, this 'Street Hemi' engine was quoted as producing 425bhp at 5,000rpm and 490lb/ft of torque at 4,000 revs, figures generally accepted as being conservative. The factory quoted performance figures were 5.3 seconds for the 0-60mph sprint and 13.8 seconds for the standing quarter-mile. When specified, the Hemi was complemented by a host of performance enhancing extras including heavy-duty suspension and Police-grade 11" drum brakes. Only 848 Satellite Hemi models were manufactured in 1966, 534 of which were equipped with the optional automatic three-speed transmission. This is an exceptionally rare car, even in America. The car offered here is close to concours condition throughout having received a 1000 plus hour restoration reputedly costing over £ 75000 ( the documentation showing this is in the history folder ). This car's impressive specification includes power assisted steering, power assisted ventilated front disc brakes and a '727' three-speed automatic transmission, rare 9 ¾ Dana 60 3:55 rear axle, Hemi heavy duty suspension, heavy duty 37 amp alternator and heavy duty 70 amp battery. This Satellite has been fully restored with a mix of original parts from this actual car, NOS parts and some reproduction parts. Everything is period-correct right down to the beautiful optional French-polished Mahogany sports steering wheel, new BF Goodrich Red Line radial tyres and original 14” spinner hub caps. Not surprisingly, the bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, engine and transmission are all fully rebuilt and in excellent order. This Satellite Hemi has been in the UK since 1975 and is possibly the only example of this model in Europe and almost certainly the best. There are probably only a handful of genuine Hemi cars in the UK and this one comes complete with a large history file including a 4 page de-coding letter from Galen Govier ( the World renowned Mopar Guru ) and the very rare original factory broadcast sheet ( build sheet ) and fender tag detailing all of the factory fitted options and delete options. Huge investment potential as there are very few high quality examples of these left, so the value could possibly double in the next 10 years.

NOW AVAILABLE FOR SALE :-

2007 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 with only 9500 miles ! 2007 was the first production year of the modern GT500 and in my opinion the purest ‘unadorned’ design of the ‘relaunched’ Shelby Mustangs. This is the sort of specification car you have probably dreamed of, but never thought you would actually find in the UK or Europe. Probably the most striking colour combination of Torch red with the twin White stripes and Black leather interior. Registered BRAND NEW in the UK in 2007 and has so far only covered a total of 9,500 miles from new in the hands of the first private owner and then myself ( I purchased the car from him in 2014 as a 50th birthday present to myself ). It has the usual Shelby specification of the supercharged hand-built 32 valve 485 BHP 5.4 litre V8, 6-speed Tremec manual gearbox, power steering, traction control, cruise control, ABS braking, unmarked original factory Shelby 18” alloy wheels, ice cold air-conditioning, electric driver seat, electric mirrors, electric windows, fitted factory car mats, fitted Shelby car cover plus the optional Shaker 1000 sound system with 6 CD in dash Sirius satellite radio stereo system, remote central-locking and alarm system with 2 keys. The car currently has a 500GT registration number that is available for purchase with the car. She has the most impeccable history folder with the car from new which includes the original dealer window sticker from America, original 2007 colour brochures, original Shelby leather owners wallet containing all of the correct handbooks including instruction book, service book, Shelby supplement etc. I have every MOT sheet, full service and maintenance history with copies of the bills and check sheets. Only correct original Ford Motorcraft USA oil filters have been used together with the correct specification high performance oil. There is a Shelby protector pad for the front wing whilst servicing. She was serviced April 2019 ( less than 100 miles covered since then ) and has a new MOT until July 2021. Only offered for sale as my son is hoping to go to University in September and I said I would sell the car to help with University costs. This car is completely unmodified original from first registration. I can only stress that the condition is still as new throughout, completely unmarked wheels, mirror straight, gleaming showroom quality paintwork and beautiful interior. Remarkably the car runs happily on 91 octane fuel and she is registered in the Private/Light Goods road tax class so is also currently only £ 270 a year road tax, remarkable for an almost 500 BHP car. Also ULEZ exempt ! If you are considering buying one of these, I don’t think you could find better here in the UK as this is an extremely rare car. If you are like me, and prefer your cars completely standard and unmodified, my car should meet your needs. Past history of classic Shelby Mustang values suggests that the first year model cars always prove to be the best long term investment, or just buy and enjoy as an occasional weekend toy as I have. I may consider something very interesting and pristine in part exchange.
