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!
