1971 MG Roadster
Welcome to the sale of this lovely example of a 1971 MG Roadster. This car was restored in the mid 1990s and has covered around 14000 miles since. It has always been garage kept. It was with its last owner for ten years and had little use in this time. We have undertaken some paint work to this car to smarten it up and it has come out well. It is not a perfect example but then it is not a 14k car.
It is very solid and passed its MOT with 1 advisory which was nearside front and lower wing corrosion which has been treated and taken care of in the paint shop - please see the pictures above. The restoration done by previous owners has included a new wiring loom, clutch, springs, shackles, etc etc - it is basically a 15 year old example of this classic car that has had little use.
This 1971 car has a great hood which has not really been used and drives very well. The engine was rebuilt less than 15k ago and it feels tight and responsive. The interior is in very good order with no rips or tears. The carpets are also in excellent condition.
Under the bonnet is in good order and was restored when the car was taken apart. The clutch and gearbox are excellent as are the tyres and the chrome.
It starts on the button and sounds great with a full stainless steel exhaust system fitted. The overdrive does work but is a little slow to engage.
There is a photo history of the restoration and a lot of receipts for ongoing work on the car. Any inspection is welcome and encouraged - we have nothing to hide - if you view and its not for you it is not a problem. Viewing is under cover with inspection lights available.
1971 Triumph TR6 - Early 150 BHP UK Car - lots of money recently invested
We are pleased to offer, on behalf of a client, this 1971 Triumph TR6.
This is an early 2.5 injection model with the most powerful set up of 150 bhp. This car has led a charmed life (it has come to us to sell here in the UK from the South of France hence the registration plates) and has lived in the channel islands as well as Ireland.
As the photos show it is in nice order throughout and we believe it was restored in the late 90s - there are some photos in the history of this work being done.
It may have had a colour change from yellow at some point in its life but it does present very well with no signs of rust or filler. The interior is very nice and the hood has been recently replaced. Underneath is very nice and the wire wheels are fitted with good quality tyres. This car has had lots of money recently invested by its owner including all suspension bushes and track rod ends etc and a full service, The result of this is that it drives very well indeed and sounds great out on the open road!
It is not a perfect example but a good solid car ready to use and tour.
We are awaiting the UK registration documents and when we have them the car will be have a fresh MOT so you can be sure it is safe and ready to enjoy.
2010 AMG C63 Mercedes Benz - a rare car with future classic status?
Offered on behalf of a client, we are pleased to offer this truly stunning car with awesome performance which we think already has a classic status! A very rare example of this Mercedes with a full Mercedes history. This particular car also has the 'Performance Pack' and retailed at nearly 60k - the best C Class you could buy and very well regarded. They were also limited in production numbers and research shows less than 1000 of these models are the on the road today.
Take a look at the reviews on line - these are a real beast of a car!
This is taken from 'Evo':
Derived from the W204 C-class, the AMG C63 launched in the UK as a saloon and estate, its M156 6.2-litre V8 developed 451bhp at 6800rpm and 442 lb ft of torque. Hooked up to AMG’s impressive, seven-speed torque converter (Speedshift Plus 7G-tronic) transmission the C63 dispatched 0-60mph in 4.4sec and topped out at a (limited) 155mph. This was raised to 174mph through the optional Performance Pack, which also brought uprated suspension and brakes, a carbonfibre boot lid spoiler and the all-important limited-slip differential. The latter was struck from the Performance Plus Pack, introduced in 2010, along with the higher-grade suspension. Substituted in were lightweight pistons, conrods and crankshaft out of the SLS, boosting power to 480bhp – the engine mods having been previewed in the 513bhp ‘DR520’ model.
This car has a full Mercedes history, a recent service and new front brakes and is ready to go. Offers invited around £18250.
Classic 1981 Saab 900 - Super rare 2.0 Auto with the last owner since 1986
This stunning Saab is truly a 'time warp' car. With 1 previous owner and the last owner since 1986 it has every MOT from new.
It is rare to find an 80s car with only 98k original miles and even rarer to find one this honest and original. The interior was covered from new and when we took the seat covers out you can see it is like new inside. The original radio is working along with the original 80s cassettes! It has the tool kit, original spare wheel, 80s newspapers as found in the boot (!) and has just had a fresh MOT so you can be sure it is ready to go.
A welcome addition at any classic car show or maybe a great retro daily driver this 2.0 auto drives very well and it is smooth and quiet, As the saying goes 'they do not make them liKe this any more' and it could not be more true with the demise of Saab.
The only issue with the car is a slightly loose headlining and the drivers electric window is not working. There is a small trim piece missing front the front drivers wing and the rear brakes are binding slightly (as the MOT shows).
You will truly not find another one like this!
