2000's
Jaguar XK8 4.2 Convertible 2006 £ 23, 500 Reserved
First of the second generation 4.2 litre XK8 sports, this marked a radical shift in visual design for Jaguar- these clean, sharp lines are now noticeable in the entire model range, so this is truly a modern Jaguar.  For what is essentially a current shape, this offers astonishing value without a catch.  Finished in Frost Blue with Ivory Hide and colour coordinated dash / Navy electric hood, this is one of the smartest combinations. We purchased the car directly from a local customer with low mileage of 30,000 since new. Regularly serviced at the main dealers, there is an impressive file.  HA Fox Jaguar have just provided an inspection report so there are no worries there. The optional 20” wheels are in fine order with brand new Pirelli tyres at the front, and very good rears. The previous owner is a dedicated, long term enthusiast who we have known for many years and this reflects in the outstanding condition of this particular vehicle.

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.

1990's
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.

1980's
Jaguar XJS V12 HE Convertible 1988 £ 17, 995 Reserved
1988 Jaguar XJS V12 HE Convertible  This is one of the very best in existence. Finished in Westminster Blue with Magnolia Hide, there is a well-documented history with this car indicating consistent, but gentle use and authenticating a genuine mileage of just 29,000 since new.  The air conditioning has just been converted to the latest gas with the compressor overhauled. All other equipment works as it should and the car drives faultlessly. In recent times, the steering rack has been renewed and brake callipers have been replaced. The exemplary condition of coachwork, interior and trim is of prize winning quality, and the engine compartment is detailed for show. We supplied this car to the previous owner six years ago, and have not seen a better example in the interim.  Long considered to be undervalued, if two recent (June 2014) auction results are anything to go by, top examples of this model are now starting to appreciate, and this could present an unrepeatable opportunity

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 .

1970's
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.

1960's

1961 Jaguar Mark Two 3.4 £ 34, 500
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.

1950's
Jaguar Mark 5 1950 £ 49, 995
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.

OTHER MAKES
Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 1 1976 £ 22, 500
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.

Land Rover Freelander GS TD4 2008 £ 13, 995 Reserved
From the condition of this ‘one lady owner’ example, it has clearly received gentle use over the 32,000 miles covered since new- rare for its type , as many SUV’s face demanding roles as working vehicles . There is a stamped  history the whole way through and the benefit of a recent service, MOT and brand new Goodyear tyres all round. This is the second generation model in a current shape with automatic transmission and the 2.2 litre turbo-diesel engine. Finished in Metallic Silver with privacy glass to the rear, immaculate Charcoal upholstery and pristine black carpets protected from new with mats.

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.
