1966 Morris Minor 1000 - New Tyres - New Clutch - Full Service
Welcome to the sale of this 1966 Morris Minor 1000 2 door. Presented in Dove Grey with contrasting red trim this classic has only had two previous owners from new. According to the last owners wife (sadly her enthusiast husband passed away) this car was parked for more than 15 years. It was revived and given a new lease of life when four new wings were fitted and it was repainted. It was used a daily driver for a few years and then we purchased it from the estate. The history was not able to be found so it only comes with the logbook and MOT certificate.
Upon close inspection we found a number of issues so we have put them right and mechanically it is now all ready to go. It has later addition gauges fitted as per pics. The heater and all the electrics work. We have fitted new plugs, leads, points, changed oil and filters, changed the coolant and replaced the tyres with four new ones. We have also had a new clutch fitted. It now drives very well with no wobbles or shakes. It has a servo booster fitted to the drum brakes so stops very well. It has a clear MOT until November with no advisories.
The underside of this car is solid. It has had welding through its life (find one that hasn't...) but all the areas such as hangers, cills, doors, back of front wings etc etc are all solid. The body work is presentable. The front half is very good - the rear wings are also good but one side does have some blemishing to the rear off side quarter and although solid does appear to have some filler at the bottom. Overall it is a car in good condition that mechanically is spot on. Ready to enjoy - we have driven her around and it is happy to cruise at 60 all day. Mileage is showing 20k but MOT suggests it to 120k - as with most of these much work has been done over the years in terms of upkeep - it is over fifty years old.
If you are looking for a good car with low owners that is presentable but could be tidied up in the bodywork department then this may be the car for you. Feel free to come and view and have a drive.
Welcome to the sale of this late edition MG Roadster - only 2 previous owners and 88k from new
This late August 1979 registered is one of the last British made MGs. It has only had 2 previous owners from new and shows 88k which we believe to be correct (although we can not warrant the miles).
This car has been extensively restored in its life by the second owner including inner wings, floors, hangers, wings, lower rear wings, sills, inner boot area etc etc. The interior has been refreshed with updated and recovered seats and the carpets and door cards present well. The dash is all complete and everything is working.
This MG drives very well with a working overdrive in 3rd and 4th, It will come with a fresh MOT as it has not had one since 2016 when it was last on the road, We have given it a service and refresh and it is ready to enjoy,
This Roadster comes with a full black tonneau cover fitted, It does have a roof and frame for the roof but the roof needs repair as does the mountings for the frame.
It is not perfect but then it is not a 6k car either, Although solid, the rear lower wings have had some repair and repainted in a slightly different shade of red and there is some bubbling present., However you can feel in behind this area and it is not rotten so we suspect it is down to poor paint preparation. Overall the paint finish shines up well but there is some imperfections so in time it could be resprayed if required. There is sadly no history with the car but it does come with the logbook, mot and a gold car check certificate.
Welcome to the sale of this restored 1964 Morris 1000
We bought this lovely little car because our director's father had one in 1990 in the same colour an trim! So a trip down memory lane for a modest outlay and it has proved to be a very popular car. Whilst we drive all of our cars as much as possible it is this Austin that draws many smiles as back in the 80s and 90s there were thousands around and now they are very much a dying breed. This, in our opinion, is a modern classic. A warranted 46k on the clock and in truly stunning condition and ready to show this summer.
There are less than 40 of these from this year in this spec on the road and less than 200 left on the road..
The Austin Maestro was the last British built car to carry the Austin badge and this must be amongst the best examples left. Registered in 1990 it has a complete service history and a clear mot with 3 previous owners. There are no rust issues which in itself is very rare for a Maestro as some went rotten within five years of being new!
With a little bit more detailing work could be a concourse entry - definitely an ordinary car from the 90s that due to its rarity and condition is now head turner and a great little car.
It is a 1.6 L with the later series engine and vw 5 speed so drives very well and has seat belts all through so you can take the kids to the local car show - and probably win the rarest car there!
The underneath and arches are as good as the top of the car and the interior is spotless. The roof lining has been glued up and sadly a few glue spots are showing but it does not have a saggy headlining which again most of these do. Under the bonnet is extremely clean as well.
In summary this is a very rare example and even more so down to its history and condition. It is ready to enjoy and can be insured for around £80 a year. This will never go down in value and like many of the 80s cars we are seeing come to market this may well the time to snap up one of the last Maestros with low ownership and in excellent condition.
Welcome to the sale of this 1961 fully restored Morris Minor 948cc
This little gem of a car has only one previous owner from new until 1983 when it was purchased by the previous owner.
He used the car everyday for 25 years and when he retired in 2010 he built a garage so he could restore his Morris.
He spent two years and many thousands of hours and pounds buying everything new. The car was taken apart and put on a spinning jig so he could strip and reseal the underneath once all the panels had been repaired. The engine was stripped along with every other part. We have over 60 photos of every stage of this work being done. The car was repainted in its original black colour to a very high standard and it has never been driven in the rain since. The underside of this car is as good as the top. The engine bay is like new. It drives very well.
We have not covered much mileage in her since we trade in classic cars and want to maintain the low mileage as much as possible. You do need to be careful with the gear changes and the brakes are not like a modern car - this is how a Morris would have been in 1961.
With only two owners in her life this car has been loved and cherished and is needing a good home - certainly with some interior scrubbing (which is already very good with no rips or tears) it is going to steal any classic car show.
It has a clear MOT until Sept 2019 for peace of mind and if you check online you will see it has been MOT'd every year since 2010 with no issues. Her speedometer was reset in 2012 when the rebuild was completed.
We have a comprehensive file of invoices and without a doubt this is one of the finest of these appreciating classics available.
Welcome to the sale of our 2002 Porsche Boxster S - only 68000 miles - FSH and 3 prev owners
Our personal car for the last year, this is a well tested and reliable 2002 986 Porsche Boxster S. We have covered over 10k in this car and never had a problem. First registered in March 2002 it is the last run of the first series (pre face lift) and in totally standard finish and in excellent condition.
If one of these was ever to become collectible this is the purest vision of the Boxster S that Porsche intended and so the one to have. We have taken this car to some shows over the summer and had many admiring glances. This modern classic also drives really well and has air conditioning and a great stereo (although the flat 6 soundtrack is the best one....) so can be driven on long on short or journeys with no issues at all. We would comfortably cross Europe tomorrow in this car.
The Boxster S is the 3,2 version of this iconic car (and much quicker and more exclusive than the 2.5 or 2.7) that gives all the thrills of its bigger 911 brother for a fraction of the price. The 6 speed manual box is precise and the car has amazing stats - 0 - 60 in 5.6 seconds and onto a top speed of 162 mph. Rated at 250 hp this car is not only quick but good on fuel - the average return is around 27 mpg so it is a reasonable prospect for everyday driving - especially with classic car insurance available. A 40 yr old with a clean licence can expect to pay around £250 a year for fully comprehensive cover.
Finished in metallic silver with a blue hood (with the original plastic screen in place) and original wheels this is a car that has not been messed about with just enjoyed. With a recorded 68000 miles and an MOT until April it is ready to go. This is a pure Boxster with a good clean history and ready to be enjoyed. If you check the MOT history on line you will see that this particular car has wanted for nothing throughout its life. It has always been maintained and it is supplied with all the keys and handbooks as first delivered. This car has recently had new brake pads all around and it will be serviced and the book stamped by our mechanic before it is delivered to its new home. A great investment and excellent value for money - these are tipped to rise - it is already a 16 year old example of a true Porsche... do you remember when the 911 and the 944 were the same sort of price in this condition? We do and wish we had bought more of them.....
Please note the private plate will be removed before sale.

1974 Porsche 911S Original UK Car FSH
Welcome to the sale of our Porsche 911S. Dating from 1974 this is the first year of the impact bumper and a true 'G' series car.
Made for the UK market so original RHD with the 2.7 derestrcited Euro Spec engine running the Bosch CIS system.
The 911 S rates at around 170 bhp which for a little car like this is plenty. This car is in excellent order and presents as original.
It is an 'unmessed with' example that even has the original stereo and single speaker. It is finished in Mexico Blue and although it has been repainted back in the early 90's it is the original colour code.
There is much to say about this car that has a history file back to the first owner with copies of the logbooks to prove. It has been cared for and had the tensioner upgrades and an engine rebuild in the last 20k.
t has been sold by Bonhams in its time (we have the catalogue) and was with the last owners for some 20 years. It has a 5 speed gearbox, electric windows and recent new brakes calipers and pads. The tyres are also very recent all around. It presents well and there were less than 1600 of the S model sold in 1974 so this, in this colour, is very rare indeed. We are not highly motivated to sell as these are a great investment but everything has a price. Offers in the region of £35000would secure.
