1972 DeTomaso Pantera
Where do we start with this wonderful example of true 70’s Italian lines paired with pure american muscle
Often over looked when people shop for Italian sports cars – Well this one is a little different…. Firstly – This is an Ex 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 too – Any inspection is more than welcome. Moving on the the more “technical” side of the spec of this car. It is a matching numbers car but the original 351 Cleveland engine arrives with the car in a crate. In its place there is now a Cleveland that has been “adulterated”. 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 rebuild 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 calipers upfront with oversized rotors and uprated disc brakes on the rear, Fully poly-bushed suspension 17″ Campagnolo replica wheels with a wider offset front and rear to cope with the power along with much much more. An opportunity surely not to be missed. This is a car tipped to only appreciate in the time to come.

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 - V8
A rather interesting TR4
Here we have a rather interesting TR4. Externally it looks like a very pretty powder blue TR4, save for the Minilite wheels, it looks pretty standard….. Then you open the bonnet or indeed start the engine…. Installed into the beautifully finished engine bay is a Hemi V8 engine out of a Daimler Dart, coupled to a Jaguar overdrive gearbox!! The installation is very neat, the removal of areas of the bulkhead have been completed very well. The cooling has been uprated as needed along with the wiring loom etc. The base for this car was an ex American vehicle, converted to RHD. A lot of the fabrication work was carried out by Devon Metalcraft, over a period of 12 months. The owner wanted ‘something special’, I think you will agree, he has got just that! It was subject to a full ground up restoration, a nut and bolt as some say. The brakes and suspension all new, upgraded where necessary. Interior is superb, as is the rest of the vehicle. History file of the build is present with the car. It has only covered a handful of miles since completion. Only reason for sale is sadly due to the owner passing away. It therefore is still in it’s running in period. Recently it has had the overdrive overhauled due to a fault found in the pre sales work. We can now happily say, it works as it should! Receipts for in excess of £70,000, this was not a cheap exercise, the purists will probably dislike the engine conversion but, oh the sound of it!! The different engine doesn’t appear to have disrupted the handling, on the road it drives lovely. This is a car that wants to be driven!! All our cars come fully serviced, 12 months MOT and as with all TR’s, you will receive 12 months membership to the TR Register free. Dare to be different…….?

1966/D Triumph Tr4a IRS
A fantastic example of an oh so desirable British sports car
A genuine UK right hand drive that has had just 2 former keepers from new! the first owner purchased it in 1966 before selling it in 1968 to the second owner. It has been in its current ownership since 2001 – Since then it has been subjected to a full bare metal respray and restoration. It was specified before the restoration was carried out that it was to be used for European touring. As a result the car was built to an impressive spec! First of all the engine – Lightened and balanced bottom end, gas flowed unleaded head by Peter Burgess using a “yellow” mild piper cam. This twinned with the use of a tubular stainless steel exhaust system has helped the engine rev much more freely along with an increase of torque too. The vehicle was then fitted with brand new SU carburettors and a alternator too. Further to this engine spec the cooling system was modified using a later header tank to increase the overall coolant capacity and a Kenlowe fan was also fitted both to help give peace of mind on the longer European drives and for climbing mountain passes! The suspension and brakes were then set about – All new bushed were fitted were required and a Koni Telescopic damper was fitted to the rear to increase rear stability. the front brakes were replace for higher performance “4 pot” brake calipers. The gearbox was overhauled by TR enterprises and is fitted with an “A” type overdrive that was overhauled by Overdrive repair services in Sheffield. The means that the car is fitted with overdrive on 2nd, 3rd and 4th! The interior is a fantastic place to sit with all of the correct gauges working as intended while mounted in a fantastic Walnut dash to match the door capping’s. It is fitted with an aftermarket roll over bar and wind deflector to help stop turbulent air while out on a run while also being fitted with a new mohair hood too! All together this a fantastic opportunity to purchase a very well sorted TR4a IRS which would, in today’s prices cost way more than the asking price to build! ALL TR’s are subjected to a Pre-delivery service by our sister company TR enterprises (TR specialists for over 35 years).
1962 Triumph TR4
Originally sold by L.F. Dove Limited of Wimbledon on 17th April 1962
Here we have a March 1962 Triumph TR4, CT6338-O. Refinished in Royal Blue with a lovely Tan interior. A wooden dashboard, door tops and steering wheel complement the interior. The engine has been breathed on, running SU’s with a stainless steel exhaust. It pulls very well on the road, soon gets you to the legal limit! The gearbox is the 4 speed with A type overdrive, all works as they should with no untoward noises. The rear axle is quiet with no clonks/knocks or bangs. Externally the condition of the paintwork is superb, having recently been converted back to TR4 specification (came to us having been modified in the 80’s with a TR4A front grille, front bumper and the wing repeaters/body trims). We are currently seeking a TR4 bumper to fit to the car to finish it off. All the brightwork is in good condition. A stainless steel boot rack is fitted, complementing the beautifully deep dark blue paintwork. Sat on Minilite type wheels with good tyres, adds to the look of the car and indeed the handling. Suspension has been uprated to ‘fast road’ specification. It’s not harsh to drive on the road but certainly knows how take a corner… We have previous MOT’s and invoices of work carried out in the recent years. The wet weather equipment is in good condition, hood works as it should. Heritage certificate is present. This is a well sorted, early ’62 TR4, ready to go and be enjoyed! This vehicle will come with 12 months MOT, fully serviced by marque experts TR Enterprises at the point of sale. Also, we are able to offer 12 months membership to the TR Register on purchase of this vehicle
Singer Le mans
What an enchanting little motor car! The Singer LE mans – Essentially a more highly tuned version of the Singer Nine Sports roadster boasting 34BHP from its tuned 972cc Overhead cam engine along with various aesthetic changes from the “Nine” such as the lack of running boards, external fuel tank and twin mounted spare wheels on the rear. Although the “Le mans” never experienced success at the track that gave the car the name – The model did experience success in rally’s such as the Liege-Rome- Liege , Alpine cup and various Hillclimbs too! This car however has experienced a more “humble” life being only knowingly used on the road. With the vehicle there is a history file right back to 1956 in the form of a “buff” logbook along with various images of the car in period, purchase invoices and also maintenance records too. Looking at the Log book it is apparent that the car has resided in the north Nottinghamshire area for the majority of its life with the last owner having owned the vehicle since the early 2000′. What is so truly wonderful about this car is the feeling of “patina” – This vehicle is by no means perfect but it does present wonderfully well with the feeling of an “older” restoration having been completed in the 1980’s. The seats look to be original and are in fantastic condition along with all of the original wet weather gear also being present too. The inline 972cc 4 cylinder engine pulls fantastically well utilising the 4 speed manual gearbox without issue too. The brakes stop the vehicle with ample affect and the electrics work perfectly having been converted to 12v Most recent works undertaken include the refurbishment of the tacho and speedo (including the speedo drive) along with a services and refresh of the twin carburettors. A stunning example of a quality pre war roadster worthy of any enthusiasts/collectors garage ready to be used and enjoyed a intended. £28,995 - VIEWINGS STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY -

1971/J TRIUMPH TR6 CP 150BHP MANUAL O/D
Here we have a May 1971 registered ‘CP’ TR6. Having been rebuilt by a TR Register member several years ago to tour Europe in, this very presentable TR6 was built to standard specification with continental touring in mind. It has completed many Tr Register trips abroad, the previous owner was very fussy with the rebuild and indeed the upkeep of this vehicle that it has been meticulously maintained. Only reason for the sale is another project has entered the garage…… Looking very pretty in Damson with black interior, the Minilite style wheels really finish of the look of this 70’s sports car. The overdrive works well, the gearbox nice and quiet, the engine is eager to press on (rolling road tuned). As you would expect from a previous restoration, the brakes and suspension were all replaced and it holds the road very well. Happy to sit at 70 mph on the motorways (I drove it back on the motorways) in comfort. Extra’s include period Lucas front fog/spot lamps, boot rack, Mota-Lita steering wheel looks very good in front of the Burr Walnut dashboard. Magnecor lead set has been fitted to this 2500cc straight 6 cylinder Lucas petrol injected engine to ensure it’s getting the best spark it can. A hood bag is present for the vehicle for when you want to fold that hood down and let the wind go through your hair. This TR6 is not a fresh out the box restoration, it is a vehicle that has been tried and tested since 2011/2012 when the previous owner finished it to his liking. She still turns heads when parked up, the paint is showing ‘use’ in places but nothing of concern. Any trial welcome, don’t wait to long to come and see it for yourself, the prices of TR’s are going up! A folder full of receipts are present, 2 sets of keys and upon purchase 12 months free membership to the TR Register

1967/F DAIMLER V8 250
A fantastic usable example of an iconic British marque
Launched in 1962, The Daimler 250 V8 was essentially a rebadged Mk 2 Jag fitted with Daimler’s 2.5 litre V8 engine and drive-train, a Daimler fluted grille and rear number plate surround, distinctive wheel trims, badges, and interior details including a split-bench front seat from the Jaguar Mark 1 and a black enamel steering wheel. Special interior and exterior colours were specified. Most cars were fitted with power-assisted steering but it was optional. Automatic transmission was standard; manual, with or without overdrive, became an option in 1967 This particular example Is a rare optioned manual O/D car (one of the first spec’d overdrive cars produced. It resided in its former ownership for a long period of time.(20 years to be exact) while in such time it has been subjected to “sympathetic improvements”. This includes a recent suspension build carried out by a marque specialist Along with a bare metal respray and an engine.gearbox overhaul carried out some time previous. The car itself presents extremely well while still retaining its “worn and patina’d” feel. The engine and gearbox are very smooth and without issue and the drive is very rewarding in all ways! The ownership is low (just 3 former keepers from new!) and the history file is comprehensive! The interior is all original including the hide and veneer and all of the equipment works as it should. A reminder of just how nice a place it is to sit! A great chance to own a great usable, Daimler V8, free of corrosion excellent to drive and with real presence on the road
1969 TRIUMPH TR6
1969 TRIUMPH TR6 WHITE MANUAL – NONE OVERDRIVE
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
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.
The ultimate starter classic! What a Belter of a car this little “Spridget” is! Presented in wonderful metallic blue/black coachwork with contrasting red and black interior and with various “sympathetic” and subtle upgrades to enhance the overall driving experience! So, First of all the body of this car – The large history file documents a full body restoration carried out to an excellent standard in the early 2000’s where it was “Gapped” and painted into the colour it is presented in today where it still remains in truly excellent condition. Further through the history file shows evidence of an engine rebuild in 2013 carried out by Brown and Gammons LTD where the engine was fully overhauled. The gearbox was also subjected to a full rebuild of the gearbox in 2018 by Heathrow transmissions while still remaining in the same ownership. Both of these invoices totalled £4500 on their own with many more backing up the extensive work that has been carried out on the car over the years. Most notably (other than the engine, body and gearbox work) is the full rework of the suspension and brakes. New brake pipes, Braided brake hoses, calipers etc etc all fitted at the same time that the suspension was rebuilt using only polyurethane bushes. Other upgrades include the refurbishment of the heater, LED dash lights, hardtop, soft top, full tonneau and hood bag, 12V power point and stereo too! A Fantastic, versatile little sports car this is just a hoot to drive! and with the history and provenance to back it all up! £8,995 - VIEWINGS STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT -

Family owned from new - limited edition model - Genuine 67k miles

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!
