1972/K DeTomaso Pantera with a difference
393" Stroker Engine - Uprated brakes and suspension - Lovely orginal body -
A widely known and highly respected 1970’s Italian supercar with an American muscle heart ! Firstly - This DeTomaso was previously an American dry state car, so as you would expect it is supplied with a completely rust free body and we mean completely! This car has never had a welder near it since it left the factory in 1972. This also means that this car has been completely accident free for the whole of its existence. This exceptional example is a matching numbers car however the original 351 Cleveland engine arrives with the car in a crate, and in its place is now a Cleveland that has been modified to give utterly breathtaking performance. The engine spec is now as follows 393CUI stroker motor with a high lift fast road cam, Aluminium heads, roller rockers, MSD ignition, Demon Ram air inlet mounted to a double pumper Holley Carb. The result of this spec is 450BHP at the wheels with a dyno print out to prove! All of this power is delivered through a freshly rebuilt Dog Leg ZF transaxle to the rear wheels “the good old fashioned way!” To add to this impressive power plant comes the equally impressive suspension and brake set up: 6 Pot Willwood brake callipers upfront with oversized rotors and Uprated Disc brakes on the rear, Fully poly-bushed Adjustable coil-over suspension and 17″ Campagnolo replica wheels. These provide a wider offset front and rear to cope with the power extra power and to improve overall handling. Accompanying the Pantera is a huge folder full of receipts dating back to its early days in the USA, and from there to a life in the Balearic Islands and its more recent home in England. An opportunity surely not to be missed. This is a car tipped to appreciate significantly in the time to come.
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
Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth
Truly an iconic 80’s Ford. 13th August 1987 RS500, build number 489, finished in the very desirable Moonstone Blue, one of only 52 produced in this colour.

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.

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.

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

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.

Ford Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth
- New photos shorty - in Preparation This Sapphire RS Cosworth was built 31st December 1989 and 1st registered 26th February 1990, this 4 previous owner, 30000 mile from new Ford Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth in stunning Diamond White is truly a time warp vehicle. As you sit on the ‘as new’ Recaro drivers seat, start the 2.0 turbo charged engine you could be back in the 90’s outside a bank awaiting the ‘robbers’ to jump in and your role as the getaway driver is ‘on’!! Original owner was Ford Motor Co Ltd Essex, it then transferred to its 1st private owner December 1990. This owner had the car in his possession until October 2011, some 21 years of ownership. The next custodian had the vehicle for 4 years before it passed on to a gentleman that kept it for just 6 months. The current owner has had this vehicle since May 2016 where it has resided in a carpeted garage and only ever used on dry days and in his ownership has only covered around 800 miles!! The original service book along with the special used vehicle extra cover record is present. The stamps sow the first service was carried out on the 29th March 1990 by W. Harold Perry Ltd, interim service on the 17th December 1990 by Ringways Garage when the mileage was 9868. 3rd service was carried our on 27th November 1991 by TC Harrison (Sheffield) when the mileasge was 17420. 4th service on the 16th January 1993 by TC Harrison (Sheffield) when the mileage was 22197. Its final stamp in the book as we can see was again by TC Harrison (Sheffield) on 30th July 1993 when the mileage recorded was 26443. Sadly, the history from ’93 to mid ‘10’s is not present. We can only assume it had been laid up resting… The vehicle is as you would expect, stunning! The interior is as new, untouched and original. The bodywork is superb, looks to be the original panels and paintwork, it is that good! Under the engine bay you are greeted with an unmolested engine & driveline, no aftermarket ‘modifications’ have been carried out. The original wheels were refurbished around 5 years ago. In the history file is an invoice for over £3000 for works, looking at the list one could assume it was for a light recommission. In May 2016 it was prepared for sale and was the front cover star of the auction house where it was sold to the gentleman we have had the car off. With the vehicle having carried out minimal mileage over the last few years, this ‘Cossie’ will have a full service & MOT prior to a completed sale. In summary, this Sapphire RS is deserving of an owner that will cherish is and drive it. The low mileage and ownership will surely mean that the value can only go up! £34995

A wonderful example of a highly spec’d genuine UK right hand drive CP chassis code TR6 Subjected to a body off restoration some time ago around the area is Bristol before being purchased by the former keeper whom we purchased the car from. The previous owner was left wanting more performance upon collecting the car as a new purchase. Subsequently the car was then taken to TR Enterprises for maintenance and upgrades! First of all the suspension was relieved of its rubber bushes which were replaced by polyeruthane. The lever arm dampers were changed to Koni adjustable Telescopic’s front and rear too. The driveline was then attended too. The engine had previously been “reworked” with a lightened and balanced bottom end, mild cam and gas flowed head. While at TR Enterprises the addition of a Phoenix tubular manifold and rebuilt Weber 40DCOE carbs allowed the car to make 168BHP on the rolling road (print out provided).

Subaru Impreza RB320
This is not your average Impreza… Also not your average RB320! 39000 miles from new and only 4 previous owners, this car is seriously stunning! Registered 23rd April 2007. Build number 269. Subaru UK importers IM Group produced a limited edition Impreza in memory of WRC champion Richard Burns, in short, it's an STi with the Prodrive engine tuning package and a bespoke chassis set-up, comprised of Bilstein dampers, Eibach springs and a lower ride height. Only available in Black, the RB320 got a mesh grille, a new front lip spoiler and a different wheel design. Far better than the standard STi. The new components and Prodrive’s suspension tweakery have done wonders for the car. When you really seek to stretch it over a few twists and bumps, the RB320 settles on its springs more quickly than the standard STi, making changing direction easier. Through longer corners those Bilstein dampers do a better job of controlling vertical body movement, ridding the Impreza of its trademark bobbing primary ride. 320bhp from its 2.5 engine, such a lovely power delivery. The 450 Nm of torque is non to shabby… Finished in Obsidian Black, the paintwork on this particular RB320 is stunning. The interior is as new.. The 18” original wheels finished in Graphite don’t have the normal curb rash on them Original specification as you would want from an appreciating classic, the whole feel of this car backs up the low mileage. All previous MOT’s are present and correct, invoices for the service work carried out and general maintenance. The original dealer book pack is present along with the service history which is as follows 5th May 2007 1016 miles 22nd May 2008 6507 miles 22nd May 2009 9584 miles 1st March 2010 15038 miles 7th March 2011 19971 miles 3rd January 2012 25583 miles 30th October 2012 29096 miles 14th August 2014 30856 miles 13th August 2015 35216 miles 4th November 2016 38473 miles The last entry into the service history book is when the current keeper purchased the car to add to his collection of rare & low mileage vehicles. He had owned it since November 2016 and has only covered 800 miles in that time. Only took out of it’s carpeted garage on bright, clear days. Surely an appreciating classic, certainly one presented in such great condition! This vehicle will come with a full MOT and having been serviced.
2005/55 Bentley Continental Flying Spur
A fantastic example of what was the fastest and most luxurious car available on the market when new. Powered by the legendary 6.0 litre W12 engine producing over 550BHP transfered through the smooth 6 speed ZF automatic gearbox. This is a car of both luxury and performance. This is evident as soon as you open the door and are greeted by the copious amounts of quilted leather, thick carpet, venered wood and technology! The coachwork is finished in Silver Tempest with contrasting Magnolia and Beluga hide. This example has covered just 51,000 miles from new supported by a wonderful history file consisting of various old MOTs. Service invoices, build spec, 2 sets of keys and original service books. The car is fitted with its original 19" diamond cut alloy wheels that are markless and fitted with premium brand tyres.
