1964 MGB Coune Berlinette race car
MGB Berlinette by Jacques Coune - The ultimate MGB? Handcrafted by Belgian coachbuilder Jacques Coune in the early 1960's shortly after the manufacturing of the MGB Roadster began but before the prototype and launch of the factory MGB GT. Less than 56 examples are known to have been built During manufacturing there was a meeting with both Jacques Coune and Sir Alex Issisgonis to discuss the potential of the Berlinette being manufactured by BMC. This however this never materialised due to opinions of many being that the Berlinette design "looked too italian"! Even though they were very well manufactured using Jacques Coune's methods they were not commercially viable costing almost doubt to build compared to the standard MGB. This particular example is 1 of just 12 remaining and is the only car to have been converted into a race car. In most recent years it has competed at Goodwood in 2002 and 2010 by the late owner Mr Bob Ridgard. Since the car was last completed it has been subjected to a full strip down and rebuild including a full driveline (details can be specified upon enquiry). A chance to acquire one of the rarest cars MGB's ever produced. £89995
2015/65 Porsche 911 991.1 Carrera GTS 3.8 manual
1 owner 6600 miles
Quite possibly the most desirable spec for 991.1 Carrera GTS? This car was ordered in August 2015 before being delivered to Porsche Silverstone in December of the same year in anticipation for the handover to the first owner. The vehicle then stayed with the first owner until June 2020 before being purchased buy our company Director as a personal car. To date the car has covered just 6600 miles and has only ever been used sparingly and has equally never been using in wet weather. The history file is just perfect with the the file containing the original order form, print out of the 3D spec chart, purchase invoice (over £97,000 new), handover key box, keyrings and even a framed photo of the car when uncovered in the showroom ! The car has been maticulously serviced every year regardless of mileage by the supplying dealer (last service carried out in December 2019) where it had its "big" "major" service. The current MOT is also valid until July 2020. The car also has a valid extended Porsche warranty until December 2020. Equally with it pampering with regards to servicing it has also been correctly protected from new. All forward facing panels (bumper,bonnet,head lamps, front wings and wing mirrors) have been covered with a clear PPF coating from new. The rest of the bodywork was also correctly detailed and ceramic coated with regular ceramic "top ups" applied. We operate our very own Detailing/ Paint correction department where the car will go for final preparation when it is sold - All packages can be discussed including our flagship 7 year Ceramic protection. Most importantly - The spec..... The car is arguably THE most desirable spec for a naturally aspirated GTS.

1954 Swallow Doretti Manual O/D "FAST ROAD"
A wonderful example of a well presented “useable” Swallow Doretti. A rare car from the outset with just 276 cars produced from 1954 to 1955 utilising the underpinnings And power train of a Triumph TR2! This particular example is car number 211 and was originally registered in Scotland as NGG533. It has been in its current ownership since August 1998 when it was purchased out of the very well known Duncan Rabaglieti car Collection as a 4/5’s finished restoration project by an active enthusiast within the Doretti circles. Upon purchase the car was taken straight to T&M classics in Thame who then put the car back onto the road. Ever since then car has been actively used for touring (visiting Le Mans classic In 2008,2010,2012,2014) To name but a few trips while returning great performance and 100% reliability ! The engine has seemingly been “tweaked” As it revs much more freely than a standard car and is noticeably nippier than a standard car suggesting a reworked cylinder head and a light bed and balanced crank. The interior is lovely - presented with the original recovered seats and re-trimmed panels and carpets carried out by Alan greater who also made and fitted the tonneau cover too. The chassis is in fantastic condition sporting a regularly maintained suspension and braking system to ensure the best driving experience possible. As a result the feedback from the car doesn’t disappoint. It starts “on the button” every time and provides a Cheshire Cat smile in equal measures ! The body is very nice but with some slight room for improvement cosmetically. The paintwork is over 20 years old now and so in areas it can be improved if perfection is required however it is more than presentable as it is! A great, rare, usable classic Ready to go! All of our cars are inspected and serviced by TR Enterprises “subject to sale agreement” to ensure a “ trouble free” experience.
1974 PANTHER J72
A beautifully prepared and maintained example of a rare breed of motor car
One of just 368 example produced from 1972 through to 1981. Their DNA was mostly Jaguar for running gear. These vehicles were mostly owned by the rich and famous (this example not being an exception) due to being owned by a former USA Senator. this example is just simply wonderful boasting almost concours levels of quality. Recent works include a full professional bare metal respray in its original factor colour (Parr green) of which only 3 cars were produced. This was then followed buy a mechanical freshen up by Jaguar marque specialist “David Marks garages” and as a result this vehicle is just faultless to drive. Ample power is produced from its 4.2 litre engine through its manual gear box and beam axle which provide a true event when propelling down country roads ! This vehicle has covered just 17,800 miles from new and is supplied with full wet weather gear, a large history file and is also very well known within the panther circles Not to be missed!
1962 Triumph TR4 Police car
We are proud to offer this exceptional and rare example of a Triumph TR4 Police car. 4100 HJ was supplied new to Southend-on-Sea County Borough Constabulary in May 1962 via Easton Automobiles, Standard Triumph agents Leigh-on-Sea. The car was equipped with a Pye radio, Winkworth bell, air horns, spot lamps, reversing lamp, windscreen mounted hand operated lamp, front and rear Police signs, rear stop sign, wing mirrors and a calibrated speedometer; all of which, with the exception of the speedometer, was fitted in the constabulary's own workshops. The optional overdrive was also fitted along with Goodyear Roadspeed tyres. Eventually the car was retired from the police force and passed through several owners before turning up in Somerset in the late 70's. The car was stored until the decision was taken to restore 4100 HJ to the original police specification. An extensive restoration followed and was completed to the highest standards to represent as closely as possible the original condition and police specification. Such was the attention to detail that where special equipment was missing, the items were sourced with the assistance of the enthusiastic members of Police Car UK. Since restoration, this rare police car has been maintained to the highest standards as may be verified by an inspection of the car. The history file contains a copy of 'Advanced Driving Explained' by Inspector W. H. Jobson; price one shilling and six pence, with a picture of 4100 HJ on the front cover. There is also a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate verifying the car's provenance. Such is the scarcity of an example of a police TR4 that Vanguard Models have produced 1500 limited 'Special Edition' models based on this actual car and displaying its registration number, 4100 HJ. A handful of Triumphs were converted for law enforcement use but this is believed to be the last remaining example in existence. Heavily documented, sympathetically restored, and toting a rich history. Vehicle will come fully serviced by marque specialists TR Enterprises, 12 months MOT and 12 months membership to the TR Register. £43000.00
1986/C Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Cabriolet LHD
A great example of a nicely maintained example of a 3.2 Carrera. Originally supplied in Germany, this car was imported into the UK in 2001 by Formulae Fuchs before being supplied to the current owner later that year ! This car has travelled very limited mileage since arriving in the UK having been owned and used in London and surrounding suburbs. Since the car has arrived with us it has been subjected to a comprehensive service and “re-commissioning” after spending some months parked up. This included a full leak down check of the engine, service and brake rebuild. The engine has been given a full bill of health by “Rennspeed” Porsche specialists of Retford at the time of the service. As a result of the above, the car is just great to drive and inspires confidence from every aspect. Viewings are fully recommended with this vehicle and further details can be provided upon request.

1969 TRIUMPH TR6 "Ex USA import" LHD
A beautiful example of a newly imported and restored British sports car supplied in its original left hand drive. This vehicle is 1 of 2 early TR6’s that we imported from the rust free state of California before setting about restoring them. This car in particular was rescued from the dry storage it resided in for 30 years without a turn of a wheel. Incredibly. the overall condition of the car was fantastic – Due to only being subjected to the hot climate of California where the roads are not salted! Thankfully this means that the car is incredibly original with a chassis, tub and body that have been beautifully preserved from corrosion. £19,995 20 miles The Restoration First of all we stripped the car down – The engine and gearbox were removed and the body was sandblasted and subsequently bare metal resprayed to ensure the best finish in its original white colour. As the vehicle is an early production (March 1969) we have completed the car with the tell tail signs (a white painted windscreen frame and trims in-between the rear wings and body tub). Once the car had been painted we set about renewing the whole of the braking system. This included: All new brake pipes, hose’s, cylinders, calipers, unions and new master cylinder. The gearbox was then taken to a local gearbox specialist who stripped the completely and rebuilt it accordingly. The engine block, crank and cylinder head were machined/renewed – The block was re-bored to +40, crank was polished and balanced and the bottom end was re-assembled using standard sized big end bearings and main bearings along with a new oil pump. the cylinder head was reconditioned using all new valves, springs collets etc with the seats being reground. The head was then reunited with the bottom end with the fitment of a new timing chain kit. Before reuniting the engine to the gearbox we fitted a new clutch kit and slave cylinder to ensure maximum reliability. Once the engine and gearbox were fitted back into the car we decided to stay with a carburetor set up. The car was originally supplied with Stromberg carbs however we upgraded them to genuine newly refurbished HS6 SU carbs. As a result of all of the precision engineering work the car now runs perfectly. Starts at the first turn of the key every time with perfect oil pressure, water temperature and power. to add to the perfect mechanical’s we added a stainless steel exhaust system to maximise the sound of the straight 6. Once all of the body and mechanical work was completed the car was then reassembled with ALL brand new chrome work, lights, dash board, crash pads, trim panels, seats and hood. All of the work carried out ensures that anyone buying this car will have the best classic car experience possible with a TR6. No stone has been left un-turned in all areas making this car a very good investment when put against other inferior cars. Not to be missed. If required we are able to provide the fitment of a reconditioned Overdrive gearbox supplied and fitted by TR Enterprises for a further £2,600 + VAT
1975 MG B V8 ROADSTER
A chance to purchase the car that MG never made – An MG B V8 Roadster !
So – Our MG B V8 roadster! This vehicle originally started life as a standard 1.8 4 cylinder manual overdrive car with rubber bumpers before being subjected to this wonderful transformation! All of the parts utilised to build this largely ungraded car were lifted from a genuine factory MGB GT V8 including its rebuilt 3.5 rover V8, its 4 speed manual overdrive gearbox and rear diff.

1963 MG B ROADSTER
An older restoration built to a relatively standard spec but for an Unleaded head conversion
Just 5 former keepers from new with a wonderful history file and with a credible mileage of just 54,000 miles from new. This vehicle is still supplied today with its two 6 volt batteries as per factory spec. There is a full detailed breakdown of a full engine rebuild undertaken within the last 1500 miles of use (in 2010) where no stone was left un-turned along with a gearbox rebuild around the same time. The colour combination is as per its factory spec (tartan red coachwork and black trim) all of which is wonderfully presentable. All in all this is a wonderful example of an honest, usable and desirable early MG B with is begging to be used.
2007 HONDA S2000
2007 Honda S2000 with the iconic I-VTEC engine producing 237 bhp mated to a 6 speed manual gearbox
Where do we start with this superb example of a modern classic. Transmitting that power through the Torsen limited slip differential. With this example being a facelift version, it benefits from the upgraded suspension, cosmetic changes and the driveline. This one owner from new vehicle looks resplendent in black, the paintwork is stunning, having been well looked after from new. The black leather interior shows the low mileage of this vehicle is genuine. Having covered only 55,000 miles in its 12 years, she is barely run in for one of these!! Original dealer pack is with the car, good service history with old MOT’s to back up the mileage. A new pair of front tyres have recently been fitted and will come with 12 months MOT On the road, this S2000 drives as you would expect, a sedate cruiser until you get into the upper rev range where the V-TEC kicks in! The brakes are superb, only weighing 1274kg you get to a stop as quick as you do going! We like the fact that this example has not been modified in anyway, stock as it left the factory. It comes with a brand new factory hood cover, purchased with the car but never used. The striking number plate S2000 JE (S200 OJE) will be staying on the car for the new custodian. This alone has a value amongst the enthusiasts, better if your initials are JE!! The service history is present, the first 2 were completed by the supplying dealer. The other 3 stamps are from the same independent garage. The last service was carried out at 53179 miles. In summary, this ONE owner from new, 55,000 genuine mileage, unmolested S2000 is one of the cleanest examples we have seen. Usually the paint work, especially black is notorious for swirls and scratches, this one has gone through our detail room and looks stunning.

1985/B Lancia Y10 Fire
First and foremost. What a wonderful little car!
A car that was very much revolutionary for its time with its FIRE engine (Fully intergrated and robotized engine), with displacement of 999 cc and maximum power of 45 hp (34 kW) at 5000 rpm, a very flexible engine, with low fuel consumption, low noise, low-power, allowing it to exceed 145 km/h and to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 16 seconds. These Figures were not blisteringly quick by any means however it proved to be a reliable design that was to be used for years to come in many other vehicle makes and models. this Particular vehicle is just great! Showing just 1 former keeper on the log book as this car was pre-registered to Lancar ltd (Lancia UK) before being handed to its first owner in 1985 (there is a rumour that this vehicle was used as a press car for the initial release of the Y10 FIRE in 1985. The car itself is in wonderful honest condition having never been welded before and having zero corrosion issues whatsoever to its structure. The interior is “as new” with no signs of adverse wear (or any wear for that matter!) with all the factory fitted equipment working correctly! The mileage recorded on the clock currently is 22,000 however it is evident that the vehicle has previously had a speedo issue/clock change as was common in this era. the correct mileage is 46,000 miles from new which is still incredible low for its age! A mechanically spot on, wonderfully presented “retro” modern classic which is ready to go for its new owner!
