UK Registered Vehicles

Daimler Super Eight 2006 £ 27, 500 Reserved
The Daimler name was resurrected in 2005 with a few hundred cars produced in this design, and there is a tremendous following for this rare and most up market version.  Offering  state of the art luxury, smooth super charged performance with the ultimate level of comfort and specification, these cars are equally well suited to modern business mileage and special occasion pleasure use; hence they are a very desirable purchase. With a limited and fast diminishing supply of low mileage examples available, this is a one off opportunity to acquire an example of supreme provenance. It has had one owner since new and the mileage is warranted at just 26,000.  Each service has been attended to by the supplying main dealer with the book stamped annually and there is a print-out detailing all other maintenance carried out by Jaguar since this car left the factory. The car has the reassurance of a Jaguar warranty running for one year and has recently had the paint protection treatment renewed by Jaguar. It has been fully health checked by the main dealer in preparation for sale. The distinctive dateless registration number CDZ 987 has been on the car since new and remains with the vehicle. Finished in Liquid Silver with Ivory Hide piped and with Daimler’s distinctive logos, the condition of this example can only be described as near to perfect. A specification sheet can be forwarded on request

Jaguar XK8 Convertible 2005 £ 19, 995
A rarely available late model 4.2 litre version with a very low mileage of 32,000 since new. Finished in Liquid Silver with Ivory Leather and ‘Classic’ veneers, this stunning looking example was a demonstrator at Lancaster before passing on to two private owners who have faithfully returned the car to the same dealership for servicing ever since. The last service was stamped recently and a ‘health check’ report carried out with no outstanding faults. Distinctive with the later, vented nose cone,  frontal grille and badging, brushed chrome instrument surrounds and sitting on 20” alloy wheels with chromed split rims, this is an impressive machine. With its low mileage and pristine condition,  this must be one of the finest surviving examples in the coveted original body style- a modern driving Jaguar sports car, but also a classic with increasing rarity and appeal.

Jaguar XJ6 3.0 Sport 2003 £ 9, 995 Reserved
An outstandingly smart example of the much respected aluminium 'X350' luxury saloon with its smooth and economical V6 power unit.  The history, pedigree and low usage with this car makes it a tempting proposition for a purchaser who appreciates the difference and is seeking the ownership experience of a truly pampered Jaguar. We purchased directly by recommendation from the first owner who covered just 23,000 miles with this car and faithfully returned to the same main dealer nine times for servicing as the history book and filed copy invoices indicate. We sold the car on to the second owner earlier this year, and have just re-acquired it due to this gentleman's unexpected change of circumstances - he covered less than fifty miles in the vehicle. There is the reassurance of a current health check report from Jaguar with no outstanding faults or advisories. The tyres are also recent replacements and the alloy wheels refurbished as new. Finished in Slate Grey with pale Dove Grey Hide, this is a fabulous combination shown at its best with the immaculate condition of paintwork and upholstery. Fitting into the lower road tax bracket, this is a worthwhile saving.

Jaguar Sovereign 4.0 2002 £ 8, 995
Superb examples of the X308 are fast disappearing and a very late production top of the range car with low mileage, low ownership, and one which has never strayed from proper main dealer servicing  is a pretty rare find.  We purchased this example directly from the second owner who was known personally to the first. The total mileage covered is just 38,000 since new and the full main dealer maintenance record is up to date with a  service and reassuring  health check report recently carried out by HA Fox. As a last of line 2002, this is significant due to  the later design of timing chains and steel liners . The Sovereign was Jaguar’s flagship saloon and this long wheel base example comes with superior burr- walnut wood work which also extended to the window switch console, chrome plinths and chrome window surrounds,  as well as the top level of equipment . Finished in Jaguar Racing Green, with Ivory Hide piped in Sable, the condition of this car would be difficult to beat.

Jaguar XJS 4.0 Convertible 1996 £ 18, 995
The final run of XJS cars were known as the ‘Celebration’ models and these benefitted from added touches to the interior such as wooden rim steering wheel, soft leather piped with leaping cat motifs to the head restraints and extra wood finishes. Externally, the 1996 cars are distinguished by stylish flat faced alloy wheels. Significantly, the X300’s AJ16 engine was fitted to these very late cars offering smoother and faster performance as well as more attractive rocker covers to please the enthusiastic owner who is as proud of a car’s appearance under the bonnet as on top. The example on offer is a cherished one with sixteen service stamps and a healthy file of sundry paperwork to demonstrate diligent maintenance and support the mileage of 53,000 since new. The bodywork is sharp with excellent panel work, while trim is all in superb order. The hood and interior is as good as can be found and the engine compartment is fit for show. Finished in Sapphire Blue with Cream Hide piped in Coffee, this is a very smart machine which could put the condition most cars half its age to shame.

Jaguar XJS V12 Cabriolet 1986 £ 14, 995 Reserved
Produced for just three years, the ‘Cabriolet’ appeals because its roof bar offer rigidity for practical all year round motoring without compromising the open air experience when its roof panels are removed. This particular example is on the market for the first time since it was two years old, and we purchased the car directly from the owner.  With an extremely low mileage of just 22,000 since new, this car has been cared for without compromise. The local Jaguar main dealer attended to all servicing and maintenance until they closed around 2006, and then the owner entrusted V12 Jaguar specialists KWE to thoroughly survey the vehicle and replace any mechanical or perishables recommended including a suspension upgrade and rebuild. The vehicle’s sound structure was thoroughly scrutinised and KWE carried out rust proofing around all vulnerable areas. KWE’s final bill exceeded £16,000 and this car has covered less than 1,000 miles since this work was completed in 2009. Finished in Tudor White with Magnolia Hide, this is piped in Dark Blue (as a special factory order) to tie in with the folding roof and removable panels.  An interesting addition is a tailor made removable rear seat cushion which fixes over the lockable storage locker located behind the two front seats. With such meticulous attention having been paid to this Jaguar during the last owner’s twenty five years of care, it is not surprising that the condition of bodywork, paintwork, bright work and interior is pretty flawless. With ‘targa’ style 80’s classics becoming ever more sought after, this uniquely specified and rare XJS could be a once in a life time opportunity, especially with its exceptionally low mileage and the high level of care which has been lavished upon it .

Jaguar XJ6 4.2 1973 £ 16, 995
This is a cosseted example which remained with the original owner for most of its life before passing to enthusiast owners who have cared for it since. The panel fit and profiles are superb with this car,  and the interior excellent  with notably supple leather upholstery looking and feeling almost as new. Finished in deep Navy Blue, this complements the French Blue leather upholstery which is a rich and attractive period colour combination. Another unusual and worthwhile feature  is the ‘powerglide’ electric windows.  Since acquiring this extremely original Jaguar directly from the last owner, we have thoroughly  prepared and detailed it to show condition. The exception to this originality is the installation of cd auto changer, though the original radio set is still with the vehicle and could be re- fitted if required. With its present mileage of just 32,000, checked and supported, this is a highly prized example of the coveted Series One model with a nice history file including interesting, very early paperwork.

Jaguar XJ6 4.2 Coupe 1977 £ 16, 500
One of the most requested Jaguar classics on an enthusiasts’ shopping list,  good examples are an increasingly rare commodity and very few have a verifiable history. We have known this car since the early 1990’s having supplied it three times before;  the last time twenty years ago to a gentleman who kept it for high days and holidays transport at his second home, and for touring holidays in Spain. Dry stored since 2007, we purchased the car back directly from the owner and have carried out a substantial amount of re- commissioning works to perishables, bushes, tyres etc. The mileage of 60,000 since new is genuine and the all-important body structure is sound and has never required substantial restoration. We stripped and re-painted the car back in 1993, and the car was judged by Quentin Wilson to be the best presented dealer exhibit at the NEC later that year. Today, the car still presents to a high standard inside an out. Finished in Squadron Blue with Navy Blue Leather and the sought after option of chrome pressed wheels.

1961 Jaguar Mark Two 3.4 £ 34, 500 Reserved
The curvaceous lines and rounded front of this iconic model were influenced by the earlier XK sports cars and they are the most defining feature of a  ‘classic’ sixties Jaguar saloon. Powered by the XK engine in its sweetest original form, this 3.4 litre with manual and overdrive transmission offers smooth, brisk performance. We sold this particular example back in 1999 with just three owners since new, and have been delighted to purchase it back . Between 1999 and 2003, the car was driven regularly, but then the owner decided on a thorough refurbishment of the mechanicals to return the car to a state where he could enjoy an uncompromised driving experience behind the wheel of his Mk 2 with the vehicle handling as tightly and correctly as possible.  Documented works included, but are not limited to rebuilding the front suspension, original engine rebuild by VSE, engine compartment stripped, painted and detailed, cross member shot blasted, braking system rebuilt with new servo, discs, Coopercraft 4 pot callipers and uprated rear pistons, new ‘old stock’ steering box (a hens’ teeth find), ancillaries, stainless steel exhaust/ manifold, radiator overhaul, carburettors reconditioned, new springs and shock absorbers, ball joints, clutch, modified air filter arrangement, electronic ignition, back axle refurbishment/ re- assembly. With a mileage of 85,000 the car has been little used anyway, so this very original and structurally superb car has responded well to an equally thorough refurbishment on the cosmetic side. Over recent years, it has been skilfully stripped and repainted including shuts/ boot compartment, replacement of rubbers, woodwork reconditioned due to sun fading, rare reclining seats re-trimmed in proper quality hide, carpets and wool cloth linings both replaced to as near to original finishes as possible. The chrome work is partly re-polished, though the majority is excellent and original which speaks volumes over the unmolested quality of this car as the finest basis to improve. Finished in Pearl Grey with Red Hide- as originally specified, this is top quality, low mileage example which has been sympathetically rejuvenated to show condition and it is not to be confused with restored former horrors which are more commonly seen on the market.

Jaguar S Type 3.4 1964 £ 24, 995
This model accompanied rather than replaced the long serving and popular Mk 2 and it offered a step- up in luxury for the mid-size saloon customer. Features include wall to wall wood finishes, improved heating, reclining seats and independent rear suspension. The curved frontal treatment was sleek and neater and the back was styled on the larger Mk 10 with its discreet tail fins and increased boot capacity. This is a very early example with manual and overdrive transmission and unusual being a privately ordered original Jet Black car with Red Leather interior- such a colour combination would have been a throwback to previous decades when most cars were either black or grey.  It survives in extraordinary condition and has been known to us since the mid 1980’s while it was shown at Beaulieu, and we supplied this car twice in the 1990’s.  We are delighted to have been reunited with this Jaguar in completely ship shape order. Reading through the extensive history file which dates back to new, it is astonishing to discover that around £40,000 has been lavished upon this vehicle over the past fifteen years including a total strip and examination of the body to its shell, renewed protective coatings to the underside, bare metal repaint including the engine compartment. Wood work strip and polish, engine bay detailing and a host of preventative mechanical work.  More recently, the car was featured in a ‘Classic Cars’ magazine article and exhibited on the JEC Club stand at NEC last year. This car has been treasured throughout its life with many superb original aspects to qualify this- the original leather, headlining, door panels and carpets are in beautiful, cherished condition.  The mileage of 53,000 is correct with its history known to us and supported by the files of paperwork going way back.

Jaguar S Type 3.8 1966 £ 22, 500
With its independent rear suspension, an ‘S’ was the superior choice in Jaguar’s range of mid size saloons. The model also benefitted from wider reclining seats as standard, a full width wood fascia and an improved heating and ventilation system. These luxurious touches became available on later models such as the 420, but the S type was Jaguar’s only model to provide such refinements and handling improvements while retaining the iconic rounded front end styling. This particular car offers the best possible specification: as a rarer 3.8 litre manual with overdrive it’s the fastest, and it has the option of power assisted steering. As a 1966, this is the vintage year with a later all synchromesh gearbox, plus built in fog lights and better quality upholstery which were cut back with the 1967 model. With remarkably straight panel fit, a high quality repaint carried out 17 years ago and impeccable chrome work, this really is a show car. New chrome wire wheels were fitted two years ago at a cost of £3,000. The interior is in fine fettle and extremely original which indicates low mileage and fastidious long term ownership. There is the option of a ‘Mota-Lita’ wood rim steering wheel, if preferred. An impressive file goes back to the beginning and the records substantiate an interesting history- for example, the car spent some years in America during the 1980’s. For the reassurance of the next purchaser, a detailed mechanical and structural inspection was carried out by the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club technical advisor and well known  expert Ken Bell in 2012 which resulted in an extremely favourable report.  The current recorded mileage is just 61,000 with the car’s superb condition and extensive paperwork supports this. Finished in Opalescent Silver Grey with Red Leather, this is a beautifully presented, very genuine example.

Jaguar Mark 5 1950 £ 49, 995 Reserved
Possibly unique in the market place, this has exceptionally low mileage and provenance. Ordered new with the largest and most sought after engine option being 3.5 Litre, this supreme example remained with the original owner until he passed away in the 1980’s when it was then bequeathed to the family chauffeur. This much is verified by some lovely early paperwork and a very specific letter written by the widow of the first owner in 1988 which warrants the mileage at that time to be 22,000. The car was eventually sold to a collector in Scotland who retained the vehicle for three years before selling it on to the last owner who has covered just 3,000 miles during some 23 years of ownership. Two years ago, the vehicle had £18,000 spent on a quality strip and repaint to a high standard with supporting photographs. We purchased the vehicle directly from the owner and have road tested the car over 400 miles so the mileage is now just over 25,000.  Finished in Black with London Tan Hide, this immaculate example could be impossible to find again.

MGA Roadster 1959 £ 27, 500
First of the better performing 1600cc Mk 1 models, this car was brought over from America in the early 1990’s for conversion to right hand drive and a ‘money no object’ refurbishment to show standard which including the underside. It is worth noting that a far healthier selection of straight and unmolested examples were available for conversion in the early 1990’s, and the quality of trim materials and replacement components were often more authentic and of superior quality. The paperwork shows that the car changed hands for a substantial sum as a finished article to the previous owner eighteen years ago, and since then, this MG has been based and used on the Isle of Man covering 3,000 local miles. The car remains as near to pristine as could ever be wished for having stood the test of time admirably. It motored back from the Isle of Man to Surrey without a bother and driving as tightly as a current example would have in the day. Finished in Chariot Red with matching Red trim, this car really will stand above the great majority of cars on offer. It  is now UK registered with an attractive registration mark and  V5C.

Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 1 1976 £ 22, 500 Reserved
Engineering advances with these later models make last of line Shadow ‘1A’,  the connoisseurs’ choice. They benefit from improvements made during the course of production to major components such as suspension, engine and gearbox, and a lot more besides. Unlike many prestige motor designs from the 1960’s which lost their purity of line thorough modernization in the 1970’s, the Silver Shadow’s coachwork was softened advantageously by re designing the wheel arch flares from 1974.  The dashboard fascia of these cars is considered by many to be more beautiful than either the earlier Shadow or later Shadow 2 designs which are both completely different. The 1A is also the last Rolls Royce standard saloon with proper chrome bumpers. This is a truly impressive and flamboyant machine in Regency Bronze with Ebony Hide complete with a period ‘dictafone’. The history is extremely interesting with copies of  original build sheets, which were requested from Rolls Royce by the owner and original handbooks with service pack. The marvellous preservation of this car is mainly owed to the second owner from the late 1970’s who barely used it. It was finally sold from his Estate in 2004 and has covered 9,000 miles since bringing the total mileage to just 34,000 from new. In preparation for its re introduction to regular use and distance touring, the car has had in the region of £10,000 spent on renewing perishables and there are supporting invoices. Original specification Avon white wall tyres are also recent replacements.

Austin Cambridge 1966 £ 9, 995
A drive behind the wheel of a big Farina leaves little doubt over their appeal as a useable family classic. They are spacious and capable performers with a surprisingly advanced ride quality. Their lines are delightfully quirky with tail fins and lashings of chrome work. The interiors are richly appointed in quality leather with a very traditionally British BMC dashboard fascia. This automatic example was with its first owners up until the late 1990’s and since then has been a regular show attendee with enthusiasts. The paperwork is superb- two massive files dating from the original delivery invoice right up to the present. There is no doubt over the recorded mileage of 34,000 being genuine since new. Finished in Snowberry White with a Maroon side flash to match its interior, this is one of the very best survivors of this fondly remembered range.

BMW 635csi 1989 £ 6, 500 Reserved
Already a legendary modern classic,  the run out model known as the ‘Highline’ is the most prized for the extra luxury touches it offers- most notably the hand stitched full leather upholstery with hide finishes extending beyond the seating to its door panels, dashboard, glove compartment and roof lining. This particular car was purchased by the last owner twenty years ago from BMWs London showroom and has been used regularly for touring in the UK and France. With long term ownership and reliability in mind, the car has been serviced on average every eight months since new so the service record has 34 stamps over the 129,000 miles which has been covered. There is also an impressive file of sundry paperwork, plus the fold down tools in the boot are still present . With gleaming Cirrus Blue metallic coachwork and a virtually unmarked Grey Hide interior, this car’s cosmetic appearance has been cared for in an equally fastidious fashion, so this is an astoundingly clean and genuine example which belies both its age and mileage. The attractive and dateless number plate is included with the sale, or the price can be negotiated slightly with an age related ‘G’ registration.

Volkswagen Polo 2004 £ 1, 995 Reserved
Renowned for the longevity of their products, the Polo has been Volkswagen’s much loved economy hatch back for nearly forty years. This fourth generation special edition ‘Twist’  is a 1.2 three door petrol version which has been in the ownership of one lady since new. It has been well cared for with 75,000 miles covered commuting from London to Lincolnshire regularly and has the all-important fully stamped service record. We received this smart vehicle in part exchange directly from the owner. Finished in Silver with  Darker Grey trim, this car drives very well and  is economical.
