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

1973/L JENSEN INTERCEPTOR MK3 7.2 AUTO
Just a marvelous example of a MK3 Interceptor We supplied this vehicle in 2019 to the former owner. Since then it has been subjected to a comprehensive schedule of works totalling over £18,000. This includes a full replumbing of the Air conditioning, all new brake discs, pads and callipers, new sainless steel exhaust system, replacement steering rack and power steering pump, new balljoints etc ! it is fair to say that the works completed were impressive! The works completed twinned with the low mileage (just 34,000 miles from new) along with the unusual Audi/VW Metallic green coach work. This is certainly an example that stands out from the crowd! Not to be missed with Interceptor prices continuing to climb !
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

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.

1977 Leyland Mini Vortz Cooper Miglia Mini
An incredibly rare mini indeed! The Cooper Mini miglia ! Vortz Racing Cars was a company founded by Nick Vrotsos in 1965 and was famed for the "Maverick engineering" of mini for some 20 years before forming the Cooper car Co 84' . Nick "vortz" Vrotsos built just a handful of these cars in his own right as a constructor seperately from the British Leyland Factory's. With this vehicle there is a rather interesting story. The car was originally built for Nick Vrotsos' father who initially hadnt shown much interest in Mini's due to having more time for the coventry climax engined Hillman Imp. This however changed when Nick employed his father as a test driver for the Minis he was producing at the time. As a result (and completely out of the blue) his father requested that Nick should build him a Miglia as it was the most enjoyable Mini he had driven. PCC559R was subsequently built. based upon a 1977 Mini 1000 base car which was then presented in Austin Healey "signal" red with a black roof and with "Cooper Car Co" in writing down both sides. Equiptment included: 100MPH speedo, smith rotary oil and water guages, red/grey Cooper S interior, 4 pot "Vortz" iorn brakes, Mk2 cooper grille, Mk2 rear numberplate holder and lamp, "Miglia" front and rear badges, twin 11/4 modified SU's and "Vortz" airbox and R-454 Exhaust system. Today all of these items remain and the car is presented as well as ever. The interior has been subjected to the most recent work with the seats having been retrimmed into their original "Vortz" spec. It really is a fun car to drive while also being an important part of "Mini" history.

Mercedes-Benz SLK AMG
Here we have a very desirable 24th December 2004 registered SLK 55 AMG, finished in Telurium Silver (762U) with contrasting leather/nappa/semi-aniline Black/Anthracite (851A) interior. List price in 2004 was in excess of £50k, with our super example only having covered just under 26000 miles, you can drive away safe in the knowledge that you have grabbed a bargain! In 2007 this vehicle was exported to France, coming back to England in 2016 with 20000 on the odometer. It may be badged 55 but it actually uses a normally aspirated 5.4-litre engine with 360bhp. However, thanks to the light weight of the roadster, it has superb acceleration and pace, making it great fun to drive. The automatic 7 speed gearbox works as it should, quiet and very smooth. The extra AMG body kit and larger wheels suit the SLK shape well and it also has some exquisite detailing inside, while build quality is second to none. It's expensive to run, but as the ultimate SLK, it's a superb convertible The vehicle is equipped with front and side (head and thorax) airbags, traction control and electronic stability control The AMG sports seats are electrically adjustable and the steering column adjusts electrically for reach and height, so it's easy to get a good driving position. The instrument dials are clear and easy to read while the controls for the roof are located in front of the handbrake. Visibility is pretty good with the roof up, bearing in mind you sit quite low. The cabin is very spacious for a sports convertible and thanks to excellent refinement and the metal folding roof, it's a convertible that can be driven all year round. Air conditioning with electrically adjustable seats and an electric steering column. The seats are heated and it was fitted with the desirable Airscarf feature from the options list - a vent below the head restraint blows warm air around your neck, allowing owners to take advantage of roof-down motoring all through the year. There is hardly any buffeting with the roof down up to about 60mph and a fabric wind deflector comes as standard. Showing 6 former keepers on the V5C, low ownership for a vehicle purchased mainly as a weekend ‘toy’. Data sheet shows all the standard features and indeed the options chosen at the time of manufacture This vehicle will come fully serviced & full MOT.

1979/V TRIUMPH SPITFIRE 1500 with Overdrive
A really well presented, honest Spitfire. Not to be confused with rusty, tired examples requiring restoration work ! It is evident that this vehicle has been subjected to a comprehensive restoration in more recent years. all of the panels remain steel with very good panel gaps. All the usual areas of concern for rust are in excellent condition including the bonnet. Again this is not to be confused with welded up tired examples. The floors look to be original and free of "patch work" the chassis is also in excellent condition. Mechanically the car is also very good. The engine developes very good power through its smooth gearbox and back axle. It also benefits from a brand new overdrive unit which operates superbly on 3rd and 4th gears. We purchased this vehicle after the former owner sadly passed away meaning that paperwork is somewhat limited however you can rest assured that this car will be supplied freshly serviced MOT'd and ready for your summer of enjoyment! Another car supplied by us not to be missed!
