engine codes, the earliest 2,144 cc 10v being the "WR" engine, the 2,226 cc 10v being

through this 11 year production span there
were no major changes in the visual design of the car. For the 1983 the
dashboard did away with an instrument cluster and now fitted with a
green digital LCD cluster.
This was later changed in 1988 to an orange LCD electronic instrument
cluster. The interior was redesigned in 1984, and featured a whole new
dashboard layout, new steering wheel design, and new centre console
design, the switches around the
instrument panel were also redesigned at this time. This car is finished
in the very distinctive colour of Tornado Red and comes with the
optional Black Leather interior. The car remains in very good condition
having benefited from a body respray some time ago and a recent engine
rebuild and mechanical overhaul completed by marque specialist The Quattro Workshop. There is a large history file full of
old invoices and MOT's and even the original sales invoice from 1989
when the car cost £32,328.50. Since then the car has had 6 owners and

recently (this year) had an extensive restoration by a leading MG
Specialist. The engine has been rebuilt by the famous engineering

drives beautifully with the 3 litre 6 cylinder engine sounding fantastic
and giving plenty of performance. The knock on wire wheels have been
powder coated in a chrome effect finish. The interior is very tidy with
the seats finished in black leather with white piping. The convertible

1959 VW BEETLE 1200. 1 OWNER FOR 58 YEARS. FULLY RESTORED. ORIGINAL PANELS. AMAZING!!! £21,995.
you get a car that is a bit special! This VW is one of those special
cars. It is just amazing. You will need to come and see the car to get
the full picture as it is hard to describe just how nice the car is.
This VW Beetle 1200 started of life in 1959 when it was purchased by a
British serviceman serving in Germany. It was from new a RHD car. He
returned to the UK in 1961 with the car and it was registered8th July
1961. It was then part exchanged for a newer model at
the local VW dealership where a young apprentice mechanic took a shine
to it and purchased it for a modest sum. That young apprentice still
owns the car today some 58 years later. He went on to be a top VW
engineer and mechanic traveling regularly to Wolfsburg to do all the VW
courses. In 1979 the bug was put away in a dry garage and carefully
stored until he retired from work and had the time and expertise to
restore the bug to its original beauty. The car was completely
dismantled and shot blasted back to bare metal. No new panels where
needed and the car retains all original panels, original glass and even
original headlamps. The car has had an excellent repaint in the original
colour of Mango Green. The interior has also had a full and meticulous
restoration including the headling that had to be sourced from the USA.
Whilst the body was off the floorpan and running gear was serviced as
required, the engine was dismantled and refreshed, all tinware was stove
enamelled in the original black. All brakes have been overhauled with a
new master cylinder, wheel cylinders, brake pipes, hoses, brake drums,
wheel bearings, brake
1972 SUNBEAM RAPIER COUPE IN CARIBBEAN BLUE. 52,000 MILES. GREAT LOOKING CAR. £5995.
a great looking car this is. The pillarless coupe design works so well
and is very reminiscent of the Plymouth Barracuda. This Sunbeam Rapier
was first registered 8th June 1972. The car is now 48 years old and
qualifies for both road tax and MOT exemption. The colour is the
original Caribbean Blue and it has just been treated to a respray after
the sills had been replaced. The car has had only 3 owners in 48 years
(18 + 18 + 12) and remarkably has covered only 52,000 miles in that
time. The MOT history shows that in the last 14 years the car has
covered only 6000 miles and passed every time without any advisories.
The 1725cc straight 4 engine with 4 speed + overdrive gearbox is very
nice and gets the car down the road very well. There is a large file
with lots of old mag articles and original adverts etc and a owners
handbook and 2 workshop manuals. The boot area is really good and the
engine bay is very tidy. The body and underside are both very solid and

great little Triumph Toledo 1.3 4 door saloon was first registered 9th
March 1976 so is nearly 44 years old and has averaged less than 2500
miles per year during that time. 2 owners kept the car for over 32
years. It is now road tax and MOT exempt. In the history file there are
lots of old invoices going back to 1987, magazine articles and 36 old
MOT's (out of a possible 40) that proves the car cars mileage and that
it has been regularly but sparingly used with only 23,000 in the last 20
years. Although it is MOT exempt it does have a current MOT and the
only advisory has been rectified. There is also a heritage certificate
with all the details of the car when new. The car is finished in Carmine
Red and is in excellent condition all around. The interior is also in
good original order with reclining seats, inertia seat belts both front
and rear, Dolomite style door cappings and a MW/LW radio. This car has
had a lot of money spent on its improvement and upkeep and in recent
times has had the following: New alternator, wiper motor, solenoid, coil
leads, dizzy cap, points, condensor, carb, radiator, water pump, fuel
pump, petrol tank, electronic ignition, brake calipers and pads,
thermostat, clutch slave cylinder, clutch master, rear brake hose, brake

radiator hoses, full stainless steel exhaust and more! It has 5 new
tyres and a recent service. The underside is in excellent order as is

1968 MGB GT. MINERAL BLUE WITH BLACK LEATHER INTERIOR, OVERDRIVE & WIRE WHEELS. £10995
is a 1968 MGB GT GHD4 car finished in Mineral Blue that was first
registered 9th August 1968. It has wire wheels, a black leather with
white piping interior, overdrive gearbox and a Moto Lita steering wheel.
A very desirable specification. There is a good history file that shows
us that by the late 90's the car was now over 30 years old and showing
its age. The then new owner Bob Burgess decided to have a full re-build
and entrusted the job to classic car specialist Classic Encounter in
Surrey. It was decided to re-shell the car, fit 4 new wings and any
other panel work needed before a full bare metal painting in Mineral
Blue. A new engine with unleaded heads was purchased from the MG owners
club and fitted along with a reconditioned gearbox with overdrive and a
new clutch. It also received electronic ignition, stainless steel
exhaust, brake servo, brake pipes, wiring loom and a new leather
interior. Over £10,000 was spent and that was then! The process recorded
in a series of photographs in the file. Since that time (23 years) the
car has covered only 8,000 miles in which time it has also had a 12v
battery conversion, front shock absorbers, a Kenlow electronic fan,
starter motor, trunnions, air horns, oil cooler and a clifford alarm
(untested) fitted. The car has good oil pressure, new tyres, looks
fantastic and drives very well.
1964 SUNBEAM ALPINE S4. 1600cc. OVERDRIVE. JUST HAD FULL RESTORATION. WEDGEWOOD BLUE. £16,995.
is a 1964 Sunbeam Alpine Series 4 with a 1600cc engine and 4
speed/overdrive gearbox. It is finished in Wedgewood Blue which I think
is the best colour for these cars. 1st registered KMG 856B on 24th
August 1964 it is now 56 years old and both Tax and MOT exempt. The
mileage is showing 12,900 so we must assume that it is 112,000. An old
mot from 1993 in the history file shows the car at 12,204 miles so it
has only done 700 miles in the last 27 years. Nothing known before 1993
when the car was purchased by a Kenneth Hicks of Pulborough. It was the
cars next owner Tim Collins who started to update the Alpine. By 2010
the car was still in Sussex and now owned by a chap in Bexhill who
stripped the car down to restore it but unfortunately passed away before
he could complete the job. His friends at the local car club took up
the challenge for him and completed the full restoration in 2019
spending over £9000 on parts alone. Their labour was free and the final
bill would have been well over £20,000. The car had been stripped to
bare metal, restored with new panels and repainted. Engine was rebuilt
and gearbox overhauled. All new brakes, clutch, suspension, polybushed,
brake/fuel lines, radiator, chrome fittings, rubber seals, new hood,
stainless exhaust, 4 branch manifold, new Weber carb, stainless bumpers
and new wiring loom. There is more in the history file. The car has been
waxoiled for future protection and is ready to go for the summer

age. The last 2 owners have kept the car for over 30 years and it has
recently after a long period off the road been re-commissioned. The car
has had a body restoration and has been converted to the chrome bumper
look. It has been painted in the correct Blaze Red and looks fantastic.

electrics, brake master cylinder, brake cylinders, new chrome fittings,
stainless steel bumpers and overriders, chrome grille, headlamps, rubber
seals, new carpets and interior seats. The wheels have been refinished

hood, brake rebuild, new clutch and a new radiator. By 2006 and now at
99k miles the car needed refreshing and was dispatched to a Triumph
specialist for new rear wings and a complete new bonnet before having a
respray. Sporty bits included a 4 branch exhaust manifold, a GT6

well and look just great.
