1965 Jaguar E-Type Series One 4.2 Roadster

Reg Number: EOL 892C

Chassis Number: 1E 11528

Engine Number: 7E 5496-9

Odometer Reading: 46000

Estimate: Ј90000 — Ј110000

We are proud to present, what is quite possibly, the best example of a Series I Jaguar E-Type Open Top Sports (OTS). According to the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, the E-Type was manufactured on 9th September 1965 and dispatched to the USA on 17th September 1965 to be distributed by Jaguar Cars, New York. The first owner is recorded as a Lawrence Powers.

Being manufactured in 1965, this Jaguar has the advantage over the earlier Series One cars in that it sports the modified floors (rather than the earlier flat floor) thus allowing more space for the occupants and in particular, taller people, a larger 4.2 litre engine and an all synchromesh gearbox. The later Series One E-Types are considered a better drive and overall package by the Jaguar aficionados.

1954 Triumph TR2 Mille Miglia Eligible

Reg Number: PLB 963

Chassis Number: TS3704

Engine Number: TS3867

Odometer Reading: 42700

Estimate: Ј24000 — Ј28000

Today we are proud to offer an excellent, long door, example of the marque. The TR2 is presented with British Racing Green coachwork and complemented by tan trim and painted wire wheels including the spare, all fitted with recent new tyres. Long Door TR2s are lighter than their later siblings resulting in the cars being very spritely and this car is no exception. On a recent test, the TR performed as it should with high speeds easily attained and comfortable with the use of the overdrive available on fourth gear. The steering has been improved by the fitment of a steering rack in place of the heavy steering box.

This conversion was carried out by the UK s leading Triumph specialist Manvers Triumph . In addition, recently, a set of Quick Fit seat belts, with period chrome buckles, have been added. A full set of weather equipment includes the hood, tonneau cover and a new set of side screens.

The TR was originally fitted with steel disc wheels and these are included in the sale along with their chrome wheel trims. An inspection of the coachwork confirms that the undersides are as good as the topsides. An air scoop for the carburettors adorns the bonnet and is certainly not a homemade item and the bonnet is believed to be a period product from the tuning specialist of the time, Derrington.

In fact, a picture of PLB 963 with this scoop may be seen within Bill Piggott s book, Triumph By Name, Triumph By Nature on page 88, whereby it is racing another TR2, with a similar scoop, at Snetterton, believed to be in the late 1950s.

Such is the quality of the car that, although exempt, a 12 month MoT was carried out with nil advisories, prior to the sale; it also carries Historic road fund licence valid until the end of October 2014. An extensive history file, including the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, verifies this TR2 as a genuine UK right hand drive example. The condition of this long door TR2 is exemplary and we believe it to be one of the finest in existence; an opportunity indeed for the TR aficionado or prospective Mille Miglia entrant.

TEAL Bugatti Type 35

Reg Number: HKA 940N

Chassis Number: SABTVR03308118999

Engine Number: OBL17E625568

Odometer Reading: 62286

Estimate: Ј16000 — Ј20000

At the Pack Horse Inn, Affetside, Alan Hunter showed his two friends Ian Foster and Tony Rogers a brochure of a Volkswagen, rear engined fibreglass replica of a Bugatti Type 35 he had picked up on a business trip to America. Ian Foster, once a chassis designer for Daimler, demonstrated on the back of a cigarette packet, how a strong chassis could be produced using the American body moulds to end up with a front engined version. In short the Worsley Bugatti was born.

However, Ian remembered from his days at Daimler, Worsley was the nickname for a Friday car a duff one — so a search was made for a new name. In the end Trafford Engineering Automotive Limited (TEAL) was decided upon. In 1986, Bob Jones purchased TEAL Cars from Ian Foster. Bob developed (with chassis builder Peter Farrell) the early T35 to accept a more authentic aluminium coachwork.

On the 5th October 1986 the first all aluminium Teal was born. Public reaction was highly positive with the company selling 16 cars in the first six months. The TEAL was further developed with a Types 43, 44, 52 and 59 versions also being manufactured. TEAL Cars finally ceased production in 1998.

Today, there is a thriving club to cater for all types of the TEAL.

Presented today is Ian Foster s own car, originally GRP, built in January 1984. It was retained by him when the company was sold and re-bodied in aluminium by Bob Jones in 1988. Sadly, Ian Foster passed away in 2005 and the car was sold.

It was bought by marque specialist Keith Lidgerwood in 2009 by which time it had acquired a windscreen instead of the Brooklands aero screens and larger 18-inch wheels in place of the original 15 inch wheels. Power is supplied by a 1798cc MGB engine mated to a four speed all synchromesh gearbox and MGB rear axle. Fuel is delivered by a twin choke Weber carburettor.

Braking is provided by discs at the front and drums at the rear with an external handbrake lever by the driver. Modern headlights sit within period brass rimmed light units giving an authentic look whilst also providing brighter lights for those late evening trips. The driver is presented with an aluminium engine turned dashboard, a Mota-Lita steering wheel and an array of gauges.

A full/half tonneau cover protects the cockpit either when parked or with just the driver aboard and stowage is available for soft luggage behind the seat. The TEAL benefits from a set of five Brockley tyres and a UK registration document that records the car correctly as a TEAL Kit 35. It further benefits from an MoT test certificate valid until 3rd February 2015.

The Bob Jones aluminium TEALs are fast becoming recognised in their own right and, as this is believed to be the earliest surviving TEAL, it is an important part of the TEAL history; an opportunity indeed.

1950 Jaguar Mk V Drop Head Coupe

Reg Number: BVV 947

Chassis Number: 640111

Engine Number: 24331

Odometer Reading: 33470

Estimate: Ј70000 — Ј80000

Today, we are proud to offer a genuine example of a rare UK supplied, RHD, matching numbers Mk V DHC. According to its Jaguar Heritage Certificate, this example was manufactured on 1st December 1950. The original buff log book confirms the date of first registration as 3rd February 1951 and the Jaguar today still retains its original registration number.

The recorded 38,000 miles are believed to be genuine as gathered from the history file and old MoT test certificates.

Originally Gunmetal, the coachwork is now presented in Opalescent Silver with an excellent matching blue hide interior. The sweeping lines of this magnificent motor car are carried by the original steel wheels and correct Ace wheel trims and painted hub caps. On a recent test, it was found that once seated in the comfortable leather seats you are presented with a dashboard sporting an array of instruments and a period radio to keep the driver well informed and entertained. The Jaguar started easily and soon settled to a smooth idle.

On the road it drove extremely smoothly with easy gear changes, without the need to double de-clutch and without having to fight to keep it in a straight line; a testament to the condition of the suspension and chassis. Whilst on the road, the gauges displayed the correct readings with the oil pressure indicating 50 psi. The original semaphore indicators have been disabled with the light units converted to indicate in their place; a conversion allowing for modern day road conditions and drivers.

We are advised that these semaphore indicators may be reactivated without undue difficulty. Of special note is the tool tray to be found within its own compartment stowed in the boot lid; all the tools are present and correct — a rare full collection indeed.

A large history file details the full record of ownership (nine owners researched and recorded) and includes the maintenance history with many receipts for works carried out. A new owner will find useful the original Owners Operating and Maintenance Handbook, workshop manual and a spare set of keys. A wonderful opportunity to acquire a rare UK right hand drive Mk V Jaguar with the more desirable 3Ѕ litre engine whose elegance is perfect for showing or driving at the most prestigious events.

Jaguar D-Type Recreation

Reg Number: AHJ 208C

Chassis Number: SABTVR03598183074

Engine Number: TBA

Odometer Reading: 4183

Estimate: Ј32000 — Ј38000

The 190 mph technical masterpiece, the Jaguar D-Type, has a special place within motoring history. It was built for a specific purpose; that being a Le Mans racing car. If a manufacturer succeeded at Le Mans, it meant success in the world markets and Jaguar succeeded with three wins in a row at Le Mans in 1955, 1956 and 1957.

The original D-Types being are now much beyond the pocket of most and this has led to an industry for replica D-Types being manufactured with many choices of engines and gearboxes.

The D-Type offered today is a short nose recreation built and developed as a race car and campaigned with much success securing 13 outright wins. Originally built as a RAM LM D-Type, the car was reconstructed three times, each time becoming lighter and faster with this final version being a completely bespoke D-Type weighing in at approximately 965 kgs. The centre section tub, doors and fin have been hand formed in aluminium with the rest of the bodywork, including the bonnet made in glass fibre. The technical specification is huge with five files of drawings, technical data and invoices included. Power is supplied by a race tuned, 4.2 big valve head, 3.8 litre Jaguar engine fuelled by Triple Weber carburettors.

Fuel is carried within an aluminium foam filled fuel tank at the rear. Sparks are provided via a Lumenition programmable ignition system. The engine is mated to a GETRAG five speed gearbox with a Cambridge Motorsport race clutch with the final drive via a Jaguar 3.5:4 Power Lok differential with uprated drive shafts. An adjustable bias braking system has Hi-Spec Monster RR four pot calipers at the front and Superlite calipers to the rear.

The handling is aided by uprated wishbones and AVO coil over shock absorbers (aluminium lightweight) and springs.

This D-Type is UK registered and has had SVA approval in 2000. Importantly it is recorded on the V5 registration document as a RAM Kit LM D-Type however, it is currently in race trim with a race seat and it does not have a functioning handbrake. Works are therefore required to put it back to road format.

An interior set of seat trims comes with the car so two occupants may be re-instated for road use. Note — the passenger area is covered by an aluminium tonneau when in single seat trim. A road clutch and engine oil sump is also included in the sale (it is recommended that the race sump is not used for road use).

This massively specified D-Type bespoke recreation certainly looks the part. Finished in black and sitting on Dunlop style alloy wheels with new road tyres, the D-Type has a definite period feel to it and with prices of the originals fetching stratospheric prices; this must represent an ideal opportunity for the true Jaguar enthusiasts especially given the build costs in relation to the low estimate.

1930 Ford Model A Phaaeton

Reg Number: WSU 325

Chassis Number: A3817770

Engine Number: A3817770

Odometer Reading: 4000

Estimate: Ј14000 — Ј18000

Presented today is a highly original, authenticated 1930 Model A Phaeton with the larger and more desirable 3.2 engine. The Phaeton is one of the rarer and more sought-after Model A body styles and it is believed that this is one of less than 10 remaining Phaetons in the UK today. Furthermore it is an original right hand drive example and it is recognised within the Vintage Sports-Car Club (VSCC) and eligible for a VSCC Buff Form.

It was imported into the UK from Portugal in 1990 and has four previous owners recorded on the V5C registration certificate. This Ford motor car has recently been sympathetically re-commissioned with the aim of retaining as much of its original condition as possible. To maintain the originality whilst re-commissioning, advice and help was obtained from the Ford Model A Club of Great Britain and its local members.

Details of these works are listed within the history file together with a record of parts replaced or reconditioned.

This Model A looks very handsome in its colour of Desert Sand and is complemented by, what appears to be, the original black interior and its high quality canvas duck hood. Although MoT test exempt, the vendor felt it prudent to have one, therefore, it has a current MoT test certificate valid until 12th February 2015 and Historic road fund licence valid until the end of January 2015. On a recent test, the car drove, steered and stopped as required. A full set of weather equipment, including side screens, will enable the lucky new owner to enjoy the full VSCC calendar of events in all weathers.

A fine example realistically estimated and therefore representing an ideal opportunity for the pre-war enthusiast.

1950 Jaguar Mk V 3Ѕ litre

Reg Number: NHU 743

Chassis Number: 624565

Engine Number: Z 3493

Odometer Reading: 104500

Estimate: Ј30000 — Ј38000

We are proud to offer this Jaguar Mk V manufactured on the 2nd October 1950 and today is presented with Royal Ivory coachwork and dark tan leather. It benefits from the larger and more powerful 3Ѕ litre engine that, according to the vendor, happily cruises at an indicated 70mph. The Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirms that this Mk V is an original UK right hand drive, matching numbers example. The original supplying dealer was Western Motors, of Bristol; in fact, the dealer s badge still sits proudly upon the dashboard.

A record of all ownership history has been researched and listed and includes; this includes the first owner recorded on the Heritage Certificate.

Originally black, the coachwork was refinished in its current colour in 1992 and still presents well with only small areas of paint defects that do not detract from the overall splendid look of this Jaguar. No corrosion is evident on the upper surfaces and a look underneath shows the chassis to be in clean order also. The steel sunroof operates without drama. On the inside, the dark tan interior is inviting, whilst the leather is in excellent order with only a few very minor scuffs to it. The woodwork and veneers have survived well with the dashboard and door cappings having been recently re-finished.

A set of new carpets and door cards have also been fitted.

Mechanically, this Jaguar has benefitted from regular services and replacement parts including a voltage control box, 2 new front tyres, ignition points, spark plugs, cooling system hoses, fan belt, hand brake cables, gear selector rubber, headlight reflector, exhaust mountings, number plates and an electric manually controlled Kenlow cooling fan. On a recent test, this Mk V started 2nd turn when cold and once warmed up drove extremely well and easily. Gauges operated and displayed the correct readings whilst the car drove in a relaxed manner without wandering all over the road; a testament to the condition of the chassis and the vendor s determination to maintain this Jaguar well after investing approximately Ј5000 in its upkeep during ownership.

Although MoT test exempt, the car has an MoT test certificate valid until 10th February 2015 and Historic tax valid until the end of August 2014.

An extensive history file accompanies NHU 743 and includes the previously mentioned Jaguar Heritage Certificate as well as old MoT certificates, tax discs (including a facsimile of the original), invoices and receipts, photographs (in its previous colour) and the history of all owners from new. There are also two Jaguar Enthusiasts magazines; one of which from March 1998 features NHU 743 on the front cover, while the other from October 2013 has a photograph of the car on page 94.

The magnificent bonnet and grill, its elegant flowing lines and its fully working semaphore indicators give this Jaguar Mk V a charm of its own. This surely represents an ideal opportunity for the lucky new owner given the very keen estimate.

1968 Volvo Amazon 131 B18

Reg Number: UBY 291F

Chassis Number: 298520

Engine Number: 60954

Odometer Reading: 30650

Estimate: Ј6000 — Ј8000

Presented today is an ex concours award winning 1780cc Volvo Amazon 131 B18 (badged 121 which designates engine size) in remarkable condition. The coachwork is presented in the original sand colour and retains excellent panel lines including sharp door skin returns and original spot welds visible on the wheel arches. Apart from a stitching repair to the passenger seat, the matching tan trim including the correct rubber mats and dashboard, may be described as excellent. This UK supplied Amazon was originally sold by the Brooklands Motor Co.

Ltd, St John s Wood, London, on 3rd April 1968 and the original sales invoice is within the beautifully prepared history file. Of note is the hand written letter from the supplying dealer to the new owner, dated 24th April 1968. Also within the file are old MoT test certificates dating from March 1981, an owner s handbook, a service booklet and records of the concours results. Only two previous owners are recorded on the UK registration document, the first owner being a Mr. C E Brixley who owned the car until 1983.

We are advised that the car will arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT test certificate and valid Historic road fund licence.

This is a remarkable and handsome Amazon that any collector would be proud to own and with a keen estimate must surely represent an ideal opportunity for the Amazon enthusiast.

1969 Triumph TR6

Reg Number: TBA

Chassis Number: CP260250

Engine Number: CP26066HE

Odometer Reading: 66000

Estimate: Ј9000 — Ј12000

The TR presented today is a very early, matching numbers example, manufactured in 1969 and with the early chassis number prefix, CP . The last owner purchased the TR in 2000 and since then it has only covered approximately 1,000 miles since. The car was laid up in storage in 2006 until recently, where it had re-commissioning works undertaken.

These works included four new tyres, a reconditioned steering rack, overhauled brakes, suspension and a full service.

The signal red paintwork, although not in show condition, presents well with no evidence of corrosion and a worthy note is that the engine bay is particularly smart. The chromework would benefit from some tidying and the TR still sits on its original steel wheels. Internally the tan trim looks very smart and original with the benefit of the original steering wheel, not often seen these days. The double duck hood works well with no obvious signs of rips or tears.

On a recent short test, the TR felt remarkably sharp with the car having the added bonus of an overdrive gearbox.

With an MoT test certificate, valid until January 2015, this UK RHD TR6 presents an opportunity to acquire an early and largely original car that any new owner would be proud of and especially given the very temping estimate.

Please note: The private registration plate illustrated in the photographs is not included with this lot. The car will have a designated age related plate by the time of the sale.

1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster

Reg Number: D458 XAO

Chassis Number: WDB1070412A065632

Engine Number: 10398222

Odometer Reading: 54,000 miles

Estimate: Ј14,000 — Ј16,000

Mercedes-Benz has been producing an SL (Sport Leicht) since 1954. The R107 and C107 models are versions of the SL which were produced by Mercedes-Benz from 1971 through 1989; the second longest single series ever produced by the manufacturer, after the G-Class.

Offered today is the 3.0 litre straight six engined R107 300SL which is in remarkable condition; in fact, the coachwork, chromework and majority of the paint are all original with the undersides well protected with wax. A history file includes a record of all the owners since new, copies of the log books and transfer records as well as a Mercedes-Benz document wallet with user manual. We are informed that this Mercedes-Benz has a full history although, sadly, this record has been mislaid. It is hoped that this record will be found by the time of the sale. An inspection of the car however, together with its history available, suggests that the car has been well looked after and the mileage correct.

All the MoT test certificates are present since 1999 when the odometer showed 43,661 miles, so this 300SL has only covered approximately 11,000 miles in 15 years. In fact, the car was owned and displayed at Paton’s of Cumbria, a Mercedes-Benz dealership (photo record within the file) from 1992 to 2002, before it was transferred into the proprietor’s name, Robert Paton, who took ownership until 2004.

This Mercedes-Benz benefits from the selectable automatic gearbox with ‘standard’ and ‘economy’ options. The car also features the optional hardtop complete with its stand when not in use. Recently an exhaust system and four new shock absorbers have been added.

Complete with spare keys and a UK registration document, we are advised that the SL will also arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT test certificate.

With the spring and summer to look forward to, a lucky new owner awaits this very smart and well cared for Mercedes-Benz 300SL which combines all the benefits of open top motoring with hard top comfort when required.

1995 Mercedes-Benz SL280 Auto

Reg Number: XJI 3545

Chassis Number: WBD1290582F118831

Engine Number: 10494322004402

Odometer Reading: 68500

Estimate: Ј11000 — Ј14000

With the spring and summer to look forward to, a lucky new owner awaits this eye-catching and well cared for Mercedes-Benz SL280 with all the benefits of open top motoring as well as hard top comfort when required.
