This particular car is an original RHD vehicle making it even rarer. First registered in May 1978 VPH 686 has led an easy life with the clock showing only 46,000 miles in 40 years. Little is known of its early life but we do know it spent 6 years from 2008-2014 on display at the London Motor Museum.

He has ensured that the car has been serviced and MOT'd each year and that the car runs as it should.

1970 MGB ROADSTER IN TARTAN RED WITH WIRE WHEELS. COMPREHENSIVE BODY AND ENGINE REBUILD 25,000 MILES AGO. £10,995.

This great MGB Roadster was first registered in March 1970 so is road tax exempt. Although it has a long MOT it will be MOT exempt as well from this year. Finished in Tartan Red with silver painted wire wheels and a black interior in certainly looks the part. The car has been in the current ownership for 18 years with just five previous keepers.

A run of 25 old MOTs show that the car has only covered some 24,500 miles since the restoration was completed, while dozens of other invoices show meticulous upkeep over the last 20+ years. The exterior of the car features side repeater lights, good chrome work, spot lights to the front and fog to the rear.

1962 MGA 1600 MK II COUPE. MULTIPLE CONCOURS AND BEST IN SHOW WINNER. STUNNING CAR. FULL BODY OFF REBUILD. £29,995.

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.

I bought this fantastic little Mini last year for stock but I liked it so much I took it home and I have been using it this year to go to various classic car shows where it always gets surrounded by people that just love it. Something else has taken its place at home so it now has to go. The car was first registered 09/10/1972 and is now 46 years so Tax and MOT exempt however I will put a new MOT on the car for the new owner. In 2009 the car was purchased by a chap in Hereford who set about on a full restoration. It was a very comprehensive rebuild with the car being stripped of every nut and bolt and completely rebuilt using new, refurbished or replaced parts. There is a photographic record. The engine is a rebuilt 850 fitted with an unleaded head. It has a 3 branch exhaust, water cooled inlet manifold, larger SU carb and a custom air filter which all make the little engine buzz along nicely with its smooth 4 speed gearbox and new clutch whilst retaining good MPG and very low insurance.

The body was treated to new wings, A panels, front panel, sills (inner and outer), arch panels, floors and boot floor. This was all finished off inside and out with Seat Amarillo Ouni Yellow.

The bodywork is rust free and in good condition (although not concours) The interior is good but you may wish to splash out on some new rubber mats as the current fitted ones could do with replacing.
