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 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. Soon after the last owner purchased the car in 1997 the car was mechanically restored and treated to a new Ivor Searle replacement engine at a cost of £2500. The car was then re-painted in the correct Pageant Blue at a cost of another £2500. Since then the car has covered only 12,000 miles but has been serviced and MOT'd annually and cared for by the owner. In recent times it has had a new exhaust, Shock absorbers, carb overhaul and tyres. The car has a full tonneau cover and a hood tonneau.

1975 MGB ROADSTER IN RARE ACONITE PURPLE. O/DRIVE BOX.

CHROME BUMPERS. TAX AND MOT EXEMPT. GREAT CAR. £8995.

This great MGB Roadster is a GHN5 model and was first registered 1-4-1975. It comes with a heritage certificate that shows the car was built in Feb 75 and despatched to the dealer Carlaw Cars in Glasgow and that the car is an original RHD UK spec model ordered in Aconite Purple with Autumn Leaf trim and with overdrive and headrests.  Carlaws supplied the car to its first owner soon after and she kept the car for 38 years. The large history file shows that the car was taken to France in 1985 when the owner went there to work and that's where it stayed till 2013 when it was sold to another ex pat living in France. He returned to live in the UK in 2016 and bought the car back with him. The file contains copious amounts of invoices for servicing and parts both in France and the UK. In 1987 the car was despatched to a garage in Bristol with approx 65,000 miles on the clock for a complete overhaul, respray and it had the engine, gearbox, diff and carbs rebuilt. The bill was £3800 which was a huge amount for the work in 1987. The file shows another £8000 spent on the upkeep of the car over the next 20 years but only a further 7000 miles. After returning to the UK 3 years ago the new owner decided to freshen the car up and improve the spec. The car was given a very good chrome bumper conversion, poly bushed suspension, 3/4" anti roll bar, halogen lamps, lowered springs, new grille, telescopic front and rear suspension conversion kit, new carpets and full respray in the original Aconite colour. The black interior and dash are in excellent condition.

2000 JAGUAR XKR 4.0 SUPERCHARGED COUPE AUTO. METALLIC MIDNIGHT BLACK. IVORY LEATHER. ONLY 71K MILES. £12995.

Jaguar XKR 4.0 Supercharged Coupe Automatic is finished in Metallic Midnight Black with Ivory leather interior. It was first registered in January 2000 and is nearly 19 years old but has covered only 71,000 miles. The last owner purchased the car in November 2006 and has owned the car for 12 years. In that time he has only put 6,000 miles on it and looked after the car very well. It has been kept in a heated garage and serviced at the main Jaguar dealers. The car has just had (November 18) a full major service by a Jaguar specialist and passed its MOT with no advisories just a few days ago. The headlining was sagging a bit (common fault on Jaguars) so we had that professionally replaced. The history file and full original book pack show that the car has been well maintained throughout its life and remains in superb condition. The list of features on this model is long and includes: electric heated seats, multi change CD player, cruise control, climate control, multi function steering wheel, etc. It even still has the original built in car phone and it still works! The car sits on 18" alloy wheels. This really is a lovely car and very fast when needed with the 4.0 supercharged engine.
