1957 STANDARD 10 4 DOOR SALOON. 39,000 MILES. STAINLESS EXHAUST. 948cc. GREAT LITTLE CAR. £4995.

This great little car is a Standard 10 4 door saloon that cost £586 when first registered 16th April 1957 by Philpotts Garage in Ramsgate, Kent. The current owner has had 852 BTO for 5 years and he claims the 39100 recorded miles is correct but I can't warrant that mileage. The cream paintwork really suits this car the crome sparkles on the front trim, wing mirrors and bumpers. There is a 948cc engine and 4 speed gearbox that work well together and propel the car along at a fair pace. There is a stainless steel exhaust system and in recent times the car has had new clutch master, brake master, brake hose, brake shoes, and wheel cylinders. New front shock absorbers as well. The interior is good with new carpets, a fitted fire extinguisher and the rear seats that fold down for access to the boot area. 2 Standard books included.

This 1971 Lotus Elan was first registered 6th September 1971. It was issued with the distinctive number KLR 39K. The colour scheme of Burgundy Red with Metalflake Silver roofis both rare and desirable. The car has had on 2 owners for 36 years from 1983 till 2019 and in their ownership the history file shows some £11,000 has been spent improving the car. It has had a new Lotus chassis, the big valve engine has had a rebuild and lots of parts replaced or rebuilt. Carbs, servo, brake master, clutch master, suspension, steering rack, starter motor, shock absorbers, springs, clutch, radiator, brake pipes, kenlow fan, piper air filter, breather tank, petrol pump, battery and a stainless steel exhaust. All in the last 5000 miles. In the last year it has had a new water pump, engine mounts, rotoflex couplings, headlamp vacuum globe, electronic ignition and a brake caliper rebuild. The interior is in oatmeal and the seats retain plenty of firmness. The radio is there but not wired in. The engine and 4 speed ford gearbox (pfreferable to the 5 speed Maxi box) are in fine fettle and the car drives very well. The exterior finish has a few marks here and there but nothing serious and this is reflected in the price.

1967 MORRIS MINOR TRAVELLER. 2 OWNERS FROM NEW AND LOW MILEAGE. FULLY RESTORED AND ENGINE REBUILT. £10995
This lovely Minor Traveller was first registered 6th July 1967 to a gentleman in Leicester who kept the car for the next 29 years when it was inherited by his son who kept it for the next 22 years. It was in his ownership in the 90's that the car was fully restored inside and out with no expense spared and the car was returned to its former glory. The Ash wood frame was replaced at this time. He used the car sparingly over the next 22 years (averaging just 1000 miles per year) covering just 22,000 miles in that time and there is a photo album showing the restoration. The total mileage is only 83,000. In recent times the 1098cc engine has been removed from the car and has had a complete rebuild with new pistons and rings, crank grind and bearings, new oil pump, timing chain, clutch, water pump, radiator, recon rocker shaft, recon cylinder head, all new gaskets and seals, new plugs, oil filter and 20/50 oil, electrical service items and all topped off with a coat of the correct BMC green engine paint. It has a new exhaust. Both front and rear brakes have been completely refreshed with new cylinders and pads. The car now zips along nicely with the engine and 4 speed gearbox performing very well. The engine is as new and has covered only a couple of hundred miles so far it. The car is finished in Old English White with a Cherokee Red interior. The history file is full of old invoices, 19 old MOT's and 19 old tax discs along with the original green log book, a workshop manual, a drivers handbook, lubrication chart and 2 other Minor books.
