1961 MORRIS MINOR 1000 CONVERTIBLE. FACTORY BUILT ORIGINAL. TAX AND MOT EXEMPT. BEAUTIFUL CAR. £8995.

MAS 956 was first registered in 1961 and is an original factory built convertible (not a cut down saloon). It has a M/AT chassis number. The car is in excellent condition all round and although it is road tax and MOT exempt it will come with a fresh MOT. It is ready to use this summer for those family picnics and fun days out.  The car has had in recent years new carpets and seats, exhaust, brake servo, grille, water pump and clutch. The engine had a complete rebuild in 2013. The exterior is complemented by the chrome bumpers and overiders, chrome door mirrors, shiny wheel  trims, hub caps and the red coachline. The soft top is in excellent order and when down is covered by a burgundy hood tonneau. The interior is also in fine order. The red seats and door cards are in excellent condition and very comfortable to use. The carpets are like new and match the rest of the interior well. There is a large auxiliary interior light fitted and there is even a working heater to keep the chill off your toes! The boot area is also nicely carpeted and there you will find the spare wheel and all the tools. The car still has the original and working semaphore style indicators on the sides of the car as well as the more modern indicators on the wings both front and rear. Mechanically all is well with the 948cc engine and 4 speed gearbox working well together and propelling the car along at a fair speed to keep you up with modern traffic. The car has covered only 3000 miles in the last 6 years. The tyres are all good and the car is ready to enjoy!

1962 MGA 1600 MK II COUPE. MULTIPLE CONCOURS AND BEST IN SHOW WINNER. STUNNING CAR. FULL BODY OFF REBUILD. £27,995.

This wonderful car is simple stunning. It is one of the last MGA's built and was first registered 4th July 1962. Chassis number is GHD2/107950 and it is still on its original registration number of 1193 AW. The car was purchased by the current owner 17 years ago in 2001 as a restoration project and over the next 5 years was subject to an exacting rebuild. The body was taken of the chassis and both were fully restored and painted in the best colour of Iris Blue. The engine, gearbox, suspension, brakes and all the running gear were rebuilt to a very high standard before all the components were meticulously put back together. It would be impossible to list every part used as there are so many but the history file has invoices for over £10,000 in parts alone. Add another £10,000 for the bodywork, paint and labour costs and you have a total cost of £20,000. That was 15 years ago so you could probably add another 50% to £30,000 for a similar restoration today. The car remains in fantastic condition and the pictures speak for themselves. You need to come and see the car in the flesh if you are interested in buying the car. The carpets, red interior, boot area and particularly the under bonnet area are all exceptional. The car comes with the history file, owners handbook and the original buff log book.

This fantastic car was first registered 28/03/1980 and is now 38 years old. In all that time it has covered only 13,800 miles. There is a letter in the file from the garage that looked after the car for its owner from 1983 to 1994 confirming the mileage at that time as only 7763 miles. 19 MOT's (never had a fail or a single advisory!) confirm the mileage is correct now at only 13,800 miles.

This 1500 Midget is a great car and has just come in to us as a part exchange on an MGB roadster. The last owners had the car for 21 years and had cared for it at great expense over those years. First registered in June 1978 the car is now 40 years old and is road tax and MOT exempt. There is a large file of paperwork history with the car going back to 1981 showing that the car has always resided in the Surrey/Berkshire area and includes 33 old MOT's that confirm the mileage.

1966 MGB ROADSTER. OLD ENGLISH WHITE WITH RED INTERIOR. OVERDRIVE. WIRE WHEELS. STUNNING CAR. £16995.

This is your chance to buy an early MGB roadster (GHN3 model) that drives like new. It is one of the best driving MGB's I have had the pleasure of taking on the road. Everything is smooth and precise and it is a real drivers car. This MGB was built October 1966 and despatched to dealer Hewens Garage in Maidenhead for collection by its first owner. It was ordered in Old English White with Red leather interior and a red tonneau cover. The car comes with a heritage certificate that shows that it was also ordered with wire wheels, overdrive gearbox, anti roll bar, heater and a black pack away hood. The car has spent the last decade in Copenhagen, Denmark in the ownership of a Danish MG car club member. On returning to the UK the DVLA issued it with its original number SBH 777D. The car has recently been given a check through and treated to a new hood, laminated windscreen, brake overhaul and a suspension overhaul. The red interior looks great and the leather seats have a wonderful patina to them. A very good looking and very straight car it is ready for the road and for the show circuit in 2019. It is road tax and MOT exempt but still has an MOT with no advisories till April 2019.

1968 MORRIS MINOR 1000 2DOOR SALOON. A STUNNING RECENTLY RESTORED EXAMPLE. TAX & MOT EXEMPT. £10995

It is a welcome return to this car that we first sold 2 years ago. The owner has enjoyed owning the car but due to lack of time and other commitments the car has been little used and covered less than 1000 miles during his ownership. This 1968 Morris Minor two door saloon, registration number HJY 95F was first registered 19/1/1968 and is finished in the Maroon B colour. This charming two door saloon has been the subject of a no expense spared nut and bolt restoration by Devon Classic Cars. They confirm that the car had a full body restoration and paint, engine rebuild, new interior, exhaust, brakes, clutch, wiring loom,  tyres and a new fuel tank. The maroon coachwork is superb and is complemented with the re-trimmed red interior with red carpets and red door cards with a new headlining. All the running gear and the engine has been restored to a similar high standard with the 1098cc engine and 4 speed gearbox in excellent working order.  The engine bay is very tidy as is the carpeted boot area. The restorer advises us that the price of the car is considerably lower than the £12,000+ cost of the restoration so offers the next owner tremendous value. The white wheels with chrome hub caps, white grill and new chrome bumpers finish of the look. The car has had only 5 owners with the previous owner keeping the car for 33 years. The mileage shows 47,200 miles. It has recently had a service and rear brake set up. The last MOT had no advisories.
