A Classic Spring
Our forthcoming Spring Sale promises to offer an eclectic mix of classic cars, motorcycles and interesting automobilia. The vehicle assortment is headed up by a super 1965 Mercedes-Benz 230SL, equipped with the iconic ‘Pagoda’ hardtop and the rare, very desirable manual transmission. The stylish motor car has been the subject of an older restoration and complete engine rebuild and is finished in gold with complementary black interior. An expansive history offered with the Mercedes confirms that it has had just six owners, and with invoices contained totalling over £20,000 since the late Eighties, the motor car has obviously been well cared for. The 230SL offers smooth, light motoring and is oft considered the more nimble and enjoyable sibling of the SL range.
Complimenting the 230SL will be a Jaguar E-Type Series III of 1972 which, having spent most of its life in California, is a superb example of its type, and a 1950 Bentley Mk VI Sports Saloon that may require a little cosmetic work, but will provide a supremely elegant mode of transportation.
At the other end of the spectrum, we will offer a host of restoration projects, including a 1969 Austin Mini Cooper 1000 Mk II, a 1952 Riley RMB and a 1933 Morris Cowley Six Saloon. Other pre-war motors include a fantastically original Studebaker Dictator Six in original right hand drive configuration, a Lanchester L10 Doctor’s Drophead Coupe and a pretty Austin 7 Ruby Deluxe Mk I, all of 1934 vintage. The selection of motorcycles includes a 1957 Velocette LE.
Lovers of motor cars from the Fifties and Sixties will be well-catered for by way of a 1969 Morris Minor Convertible, a 1955 Ford Consul Mk I, a Vanden Plas Princess, an original 1968 Rover P6 3500 and two Rover P4s: an early ‘Cyclops’ 75 and a 1964 110. For those who prefer more modern classics, the Spring Sale will include a 1996 Jaguar XK8 Convertible, a 1970 MG B Roadster, a 1976 MG Midget, a modified 1972 Triumph 2000, a 1987 Volkswagen Golf Karmann Ghia 1.6 Cabriolet Auto, and a true relic from the Seventies, a Fiat 126 Personal 4.
