1961 Jaguar MK II 4.2 Five Speed Manual. British Racing Green with Saddle leather upholstery. This special Jaguar Mk.II is the former property of the late Jeff Uren, retired BSCC driver famed for his engineering and tuning skills which led to his renowned work with the Ford Cortina Mk.II Savage and Ford Capri Stampede which remain a hit with Ford buffs to this day. He bought this car in Chignell, Bedfordshire in January 2000 after the then-owner had invested many ££’s and close to two years having the car restored by Flying Cat Engineering of Royston, Herts. There is photographic record of the extent of the restoration, but it included cutting-out and repairing and welding new sections, front cross member, crow’s feet, stays, front valance, sills, floor sections, rear wheel arches, doors, rear valance, boot lid, spring hangers, inner wheel arches and splash panels, and also to strip, prepare and respray the car in original colour British Racing Green. All this work took from April 1996 to the finishing touch headlining in 1998. From the Spring of 2000 after owning the car for just a handful of months, Jeff started to identify problems with the original 3.4 engine. It was repo..
1961 Daimler Dart SP250. British Racing Green with Tan leather upholstery and beige soft top. The SP250 was launched as the Daimler Dart in April 1959 at the New York Motor Show, Chrysler, whose Dodge division owned the trademark for the "Dart" model name, ordered Daimler to change the name under threat of legal action. With little time to come up with a new name, Daimler used the project number, SP250, as the model number. SP250s were used by the British Metropolitan Police in London. The car is one of 26 examples bought by the Metropolitan Police between 1961 and 1964 to use as high-speed pursuit vehicles. The flying Darts, which could reach 125mph, were based at special Traffic Garages throughout London and proved to be a major deterrent against the scourge of speeding motorcyclists going ‘ton up’. These were used by the Traffic Department to catch up with speeders, especially café racers. The police cars used the Borg-Warner Model 8 three-speed automatic, which the Metropolitan Police found to be better for town work and high-speed chases, and was also found to be more economical, avoiding the clutch wear that a manual car would develop with usage between 18 and 24 hours a..

1965 Jaguar S Type 3.8 Manual / Overdrive. Cream with Red leather upholstery.

1973 MGB Roadster. Tartan Red with Black Leather Piped with White. 1967 saw a variety of factory upgrades to the MGB sufficient to define what is known now as the MK II MGB model. These included - Synchromesh on all 4 gears along with revised ratios, a new rear axle, an alternator replaced the old dynamo along with a change to a negative earth system and standardised reclining seats (as seen on this example) Originally supplied to California (hence the three windscreen wipers) where it remained for some 37 years before being purchased by a Danish collector (believed to be a Mr J Buech) in 2010. Soon afterwards he sent the vehicle to Byrne Motor Trust (BMT) a renowned restoration workshop. BMT carried out what can only be described as a 'nut and bolt' restoration spanning over the next 2 years, billing some 2,809 hours of labour, and extensive new parts list supplied by reputable UK dealers. The result - a lovingly renewed classic MGB that would satisfy any inspection. In 2014 upon completion of its restoration this MGB was returned to Denmark where it stayed in a private museum until being purchased by DD Classics of London in 2015. The car has since enjoyed light use including ent..
1972 Mercedes Benz 250 Coupe. Beige Grey Metallic (728) with black MB tex upholstery. Mercedes introduced a coupé variant of the W114 in 1969, featuring a longer boot lid and available with either a 2.5 or 2.8 litre six-cylinder engine. While a classic and understated design these generally cost less than the W113-based 280 SL model that ran until 1971, and its successor, the 3.5 or 4.5 litre V8 Mercedes SL R107/C107 (1971–1989) roadster and coupé. While a 'hard-top' unlike the fully convertible SL, the pillarless design allowed all the windows to be lowered completely for open air motoring. This stunning pillarless coupe arrived in the U.K during 2021 after spending its life in the sunshine of California. It presents very well and exudes style and elegance. A very well specced car with power steering, electric windows and an electric sunroof, all options that were very rare in 1972. The odometer reads 47,000 miles which the previous keeper believes to be correct but we are unable to guarantee this due to the age. The paintwork has a lovely lustre and the interior upholstery shows minimal wear. Mechanically the car drives as it should with excellent oil pressure and a strong en..
1990 Ford Escort XR3i Cabriolet. Black with Shadow half leather upholstery and a black mohair electric hood.

It has had just 3 former keepers from new and has a recorded 56,000 miles from new. The car was subject to a restoration six years ago which included a full bare metal respray and an engine rebuild and has covered less than 500 miles since. The original dealer wallet is still with the car and retains all handbooks and manuals as well as the service book. The supplying dealer assurance certificate shows that it was supplied by Currie Motor London Ltd on 1st August 1990 to Mr Murphy of London. In beautiful all round condition this Ford has clearly been cherished and has been well cared for over its lifetime. Running and driving just as you would expect the 1.6 EFi is very responsive and the 5 speed gearbox smooth and precise. The electric soft top works correctly as do the electric windows and all gauges and dials functioning. It is also fitted with a heated front screen and has a tonneau cover. This is a very genuine u..
1987 BMW 525e Lux Automatic E28. Saturn Blue with Pearl Beige leather. A very rare and desirable car that you don’t see very often, a BMW 525 E Lux Automatic, if you know what this car is, you will understand how rare it is, this was the 2.7 cc 6 cylinder engine that produced 129 bhp with the Motronic fuel injection that was meant to make it more economical than the BMW 525i, hence the “E” label, just think how forward thinking BMW was back in the 1980’s. Supplied new on 1st March 1987 by Barons BMW of Farnborough and still wearing its original dealer number plates and rear window sticker. A very original car that was with its first owner until 1991 and then its second owner and has remained in the same family ever since some 33 years. Displaying just 82,000 miles from new and with MOT certificates dating back to the very first one in 1987 the low mileage can be warranted correct. A car that has been very well maintained and covered minimal mileage over the years it is still a joy to drive and could form part of any collection or even be a daily driver, the six cylinder engine, auto gearbox and power steering making it effortless on the road. A totally unmolested car that s..
2006 BMW R 1200 S. Midnight Black. This stunning motorcycle has been with its last owner from 2 months old and has covered just 6,000 miles from new. It has been cherished and loved and still presents as it did when new some 18 years ago. Supplied new by BMW on 12th May 2006 to Mr Seward who only kept the bike for 2 months before a change in circumstances when SPC BMW called the current owner who was looking for this exact bike, he purchased it immediately and has owned it ever since. He used the bike sparingly and more recently the bike has covered minimal mileage. Compared to the BMW R1100S which it succeeded, the R1200S was 13 kg lighter, and (with a compression ratio raised from it was 25% more powerful with a "hexhead" motor rated at 122 horsepower. Much of the weight saving was down to a new trellis-type frame which replaced the massive alloy frame of the R1100S. The R1200S thus had superior handling, improved braking, higher power output, greater ground clearance, and sport ergonomics. Although the instrumentation was updated, the bike retained the unconventional BMW-system indicator switches. Now available and looking for a new adventure. A fresh mot will be applied upon sa..
