This very rare car surfaced from the previous ownership of nearly 50 years, now gone for sympathetic restoration in the midlands.
This is the same car when new on the coachbuilders stand, displayed with his other products.
for some reason it took a little while, but this dear little car has found an appreciative new home.
a few customers who have been isolating and haven’t been out and about for a while have asked why we have been a little quiet of late............
just before COVID struck we sold the front of the site to a developer to build a new Coop, we kept the yard at the back with planning permission for a lovely big new showroom and workshop. Because the Coop is an essential food store, it is all now finished and trading. It is very smart and will be a great boon to the villlage and surrounding area.
Unfortunately, for various reasons, including the pandemic, but some of which we cannot go into, we are still waiting for the base for our new unit to be built!
We are still buying cars at the moment, so please do call if you have something.
Due to the storage, selling is a little tricky, but please watch this space, hopefully we will be back in action soon!
The handsome Rover 14 is now on the website, ready for a new owner to to admire and fettle.
Keep an eye out for more things on the website soon!
There are a few new things about appear, the Sunbeam Alpine project is ready for a new owner to get stuck into.
Soon appearing will be a 1935 Rover P1 14HP Saloon and a 1927 Morris Oxford two seater and dickey, which has been in the same family since 1958!
Please stay safe and look forward to those shows and other events that we all know and love being back on!
This gorgeous little Standard Flying 8 DHC is back in stock, its last owner deciding he preferred an Aston Martin DB9!
There is also a very useable Morris 8 Tourer at a keen price, ready to use and enjoy.
If you are planning to visit over Christmas, please email or call first to arrange a time.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our customers past and present!
We have had the 1954 Austin A70 Hereford that we sold a couple of years come back as a part exchange, it has been in regular use and is ready to provide comfortable seating for 5 at a reasonable turn of speed!
A very nice vintage project, which would be lovely as an “oily rag” car, this Armstrong Siddeley 12/6 is also back in stock, now with a working magneto and 5 good tyres to replace the very perished ones it has probably sat on for the last 50 years!
Finally, a news update! We are still here, just been rather busy over the past few months (and very slack with the news updates!)
Quite a bit more treasure has appeared at the garage over the past couple of weeks.
The dear little bubble car complete with Cornish tartan seat, restored a few years ago, but still lovely, huge grin factor!
This beautifully restored Lambretta scooter, fully “Modded“ up and ready for it’s new Parker attired pilot!
The Morris Minor convertible in it’s rather unusual colour didn’t hang about once the sun came out, but if you missed out on that one, there I still a dear little Standard 8 Drophead Coupe coming in soon!
So, you thought you had seen it all!
This one really is a rarity, but once a common (ish) sight on Britain’s roads, it has 3 wheels and would pull and articulated trailer, the front wheel would turn at 90 degrees, providing a very useful turning circle.
This one has been very nicely restored almost to completion, but unfortunately owner passed away before he could finish the last few jobs.
Go on, dare to be different!
There has been a bit of a flurry of activity lately, with a few cars sold, but don’t worry if you missed out, there are more to come!
They include a 1965 Mk2 MG Midget in British Racing Green with wire wheels, a very sound little car ’on the button‘ and ready for fun.
A 1980 Landrover Series 3 SWB petrol with overdrive, smart, straight and original and ready to use.
A very nice maroon Morris Traveller, previously sold by us, and I’m sure there will be more soon!
Please note, the car sales and workshop will be closed from the 1st to the 10th of April, so the the new stock will be appearing after that, if you have any enquiries, please email and we will reply on our return.
A few large Austin’s have come in recently, a Vanden Plas 3 litre, an A70 Hereford and a Westminster A110 manual overdrive (pictured), all in pretty good order, just unused for a few months so currently being fettled.
The A70 and Vanden Plas found new homes pretty quickly and I will put some more picture of the Westminster up soon.
There is a Landrover 110 Stationwagon, scruffy but very useful.
There are lots more pictures of the MG YB saloon with the MGB running gear, showing the many new and restored parts that come with it.
There is a rolling restoration 1961 Morris Minor that has just come in, bombs along very well, but a bit scruffy on the door bottoms and front wings, it does have a very nice registration number and will be sold as or with a fresh mot and service, it will be in the ”for sale“ section soon.
We also have a very nice Morris Traveller in maroon, we sold the car a few years back to the current owner has looked after it very well, it should be back with us soon, so keep an eye out on the website.
A very Merry Christmas to you all!
Updates have been a lit slow of late, but, please do keep looking and we will have pictures of the latest acquisitions up soon.
Please see the vehicles for sale section for some tasters!
The picture is of the very original Sunbeam Talbot 10 Sports Saloon that sat in a Plymouth lock up for 55 years, it has now completed its epic journey ( on a trailer) to Grand Canaria, where it is pictured in its new garage!
More stock urgently needed!!! What have you?
Since my last update it has been pretty busy, the BSA saloon, Landrover Lightweight, Morris Traveller, GT6, MGB and the Mini Balmoral have all found new owners, so there has been little spare time to go hunting for more stock!
We do have a very interesting little car coming in, (see left), it is an MG YB saloon fitted with MGB running gear (most of it just bolts in and could be reversed),so it has a rebuilt 1800cc engine, MGB gear box and back axle and the front suspension, which bolts on to the original subframe, so you have disk brakes, this will make a fabulous useable car that will keep up with the traffic.
Despite it’s current look, it is all complete and almost all done, with all the work done to a very high standard by the retired engineer owner.
It has had a huge amount of work done including a completely retrimmed interior, over 200 hours of very nice repairs to the metalwork alone, all chrome either new or rechromed, bare metal repaint in Midnight blue over Silver blue.
It has a new stainless fuel tank, new rubbers, etc, etc.
It also has a very nice MG reg number!
We will have the car back in the next week or so and take some pictures and give a full write up. The car be bought as is or we can finish it for you.
There are other vehicles we need to have a look at, so please do keep an eye on the website, there will be more stock soon!
There has been a fair bit going on this week, the Morris 8 found a new home very quickly as well as the Wolseley 18/85 which took a little longer!
The MGB GT is all cleaned up, mot’ed and ready to go, running and driving very well, please see the vehicle list for pictures.
Just in is a 1993 Landrover 110 County Station wagon with lots of new parts and a 300tdi engine, mot’ed, but needs a bit of improvement.
I'm amazed, over a thousand hits on the website in the first ten days of going live, thanks to all of you for having a look!
A few things have come and gone in the past few days, the series 2 LWB Landrover, a good solid Rover P4 110 needing a bit of cosmetic attention and the Sunbeam Talbot DHC have all found new homes.
New in with photos to come soon, the dear little Series 1 Morris 8 Tourer in the picture, a Mk3 Triumph GT6, in the same ownership for nearly 40 years and a 1970 MGB GT in flame red with wire wheels, very solid, but unused for 7 years, so currently being recommissioned, will be ready soon.
We're certainly not going to be bored sorting that lot out, if you want to come and have a look at anything, please do email or ring to arrange a time to make sure someone is there to meet you.
A month after launching the new site we have had nearly 4000 visits which is quite astounding, thanks to all of you for having a look!
This week there have been a few comings and goings, Sunbeam dhc, Landrover and the Morris 8 tourer were all collected, the Sunbeam Talbot saloon has found a new owner who lives in the Canary Islands (a good place to retire a very original patinated car!).
New in is a very nice, low mileage, one owner, locally supplied Mini Balmoral with the 1275cc fuel injected engine, great fun and drives very nicely.
We need a bit more stock now, so if any of you know of any hidden treasures, please let us know!
Welcome to our new look website, Hopefully you will like the new look and layout, we have done it ourselves this time, so it is a bit of a learning curve!
We have had quite a few cars come and go over the past few months, but we are always on the lookout for more, so please contact us if you have (or know anyone that has) any interesting cars, bikes, etc for sale.
We have had a few interesting things come in lately, a 1934 BSA 10hp saloon, a 1970 MGB GT in red with wire wheels for recommissioning, a nice solid, original Series 2 Landrover 109 Stationwagon, as well as a Landrover lightweight project.
I am off to collect a Triumph GT6 Mk3 in the next day or so that has been in the current ownership since 1978, always dry stored, very sound, but the paint is scruffy, pictures will be up soon.
Please have a look at the "vehicles for sale" section to see our current stock.
We have also been trawling though old photos from the last 20 years of selling cars and put some of the highlights in the "Past Gallery", at the moment there is a lot of the earlier things, but this is a work in progress, so keep checking because there is quite a lot more to add!
