For Sale - 1991 Alfa Romeo S4 Spider Veloce

Registration Number: H833 RTX
Chassis Number: ZARBB42NM6007044
Engine Number: Not Known
Odometer Reading: 30430

SOLD - £12,880

Imported into the UK during October 2017, this very smart lefthand drive S4 Spider, fitted with air conditioning and an automatic gearbox, came from the Santa Barbara area of California. Judging by the overall condition and excellent panel gaps as well as the mechanical and trim condition, the low recorded miles are believed correct. The bright red coachwork is in very good order and complemented by contrasting tan trim. A look into the engine compartment and on the undersides further confirms the impressive overall condition of this Alfa Romeo. The soft top is excellent and when folded down, a hood bag keeps the top neatly out of site. This Spider has undergone a conversion to meet the UK lighting regulations that includes headlights, front indicators, front side indicators, rear tail lights and fog lamp modifications. As standard, a third brake light is mid-mounted by the boot lid. The car also comes complete with its UK V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until November 2018.

Many Alfisti consider the S4 Spider as the finest of the series; however, they are increasingly difficult to find in the condition this car boasts today and therefore, this presents the perfect opportunity with the summer just around the corner.

For Sale - 1966 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagoda

Registration Number: OGU 610D
Chassis Number: 10015587
Engine Number: 12798110012390
Odometer Reading: 22298

FOR SALE - please call 07967 203007

We are delighted to present this fine 1966 example of the marque. Originally supplied to the USA, this 230 SL was imported into the UK in 2016 and has recorded a warranted 22298 miles. Presented in Signal Red with a contrasting tan leather interior, this SL looks very smart with excellent panel gaps and benefits from a cosmetic and mechanical restoration in the USA during 2015. It is understood that a lady in Dallas was the first owner who then sold the car to a private collector about 3 years ago before it was acquired and imported into the UK by the current owner. The SL comes with air conditioning, a Pagoda hardtop and still carries its original jack and tools. The history file includes the service book, UK V5 registration document and we are advised, that the SL will arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT test certificate. On a recent test, our tester reports that the engine started easily and ran remarkably smoothly.

For Sale - 1997 Bentley Turbo RT

Registration Number: R39 SJW
Chassis Number: SCBZP23C1WCH66322
Engine Number: 89052L410M/T1T/S
Odometer Reading: 83404

SOLD - £21,280

The Bentley Turbo RT was the last, rarest, most powerful and most expensive of the Turbo R line. Introduced in 1997, the Bentley RT came with the 400bhp turbo, 6.75 litre V8 engine from the Bentley two-door Continental T. It differentiates visually from other Bentley Turbo R models by its sport wheels, colour-coded grille slats and colour-coded bumpers. Performance was considered 'sufficient' with a top speed limited to 150mph! The car's base price was £132,000, being approximately £40,000 more than the Turbo R and was manufactured during 1997 and 1998 with just 252 units being produced.



Page 2 - For Sale & Wanted. 1997 Bentley Turbo RT interior

Finished in Atlantic Blue Mica with contrasting Sandstone hide, this Bentley Turbo RT has quite obviously been very well cared for and cosseted; a point confirmed by the condition in which it is presented today. Originally supplied by Broughtons of Birmingham, this last of the line British Bentley is currently in the ownership of the fifth keeper and comes with an extensive service history and build sheet that includes the inclusion of the Sport Mode Switch, giving this RT extra rpm and turbo boost. Every service is recorded in the service book up to and including the last recorded entry in July 2016 and since that last service, this Turbo RT has covered less than 1,000 miles. In addition to the service book, several invoices for works are recorded by renowned specialists from 1999 to 2017 and total in excess of £51,000. More recently, works in 2016 and 2017 have included an engine strip, head gasket replacement, new battery and replacement of both hydraulic accumulators and spheres; these works totalling just under £10,000. This fine automobile will be presented with its extensive history file, including specification sheet, book pack, UK V5 registration document and an MoT, with no advisories, valid until November 2018. These late special edition Bentleys are enormous value for money and with such low numbers produced, are becoming very sought after.

SOLD - £20,160

This 1970 Mustang certainly looks the part being presented with its bright red coachwork and contrasting black trim. It was imported from South Carolina in 2015, where it was in single ownership for the previous ten years. The Mustang is currently fitted with the larger 351ci (5751 cc) Windsor engine, replacing the original 302ci (4900 cc) unit and is fed by a four-barrel carburettor, whilst power is transmitted, via the automatic gearbox, to the American Racing chrome wheels.

The suspension is fitted with adjustable air shock absorbers at the rear and the power hood may be selected when the weather and driver dictates. The car will arrive at the sale complete with four volumes of factory workshop manuals and three files of history containing works carried out and details of previous owners. Also included is the UK V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate, with no advisories, valid until January 2019. With summer approaching, its time to get out the sunglasses and cruise.

The coachwork presents very well, as does the interior. The car is accompanied by a full Mercedes-Benz book pack with a mixture of main dealer and independent service stamps carried out throughout its life; however the service history is not entirely complete.

For Sale - 1966 Mercedes-Benz 230 S Fintail

Registration Number: ACN 238D
Chassis Number: 11101062097247
Engine Number: 19084722007423
Odometer Reading: 60,027
Estimate: £15,000 - £19,000

FOR SALE - please call 07967 203007

According to the Mercedes-Benz Club (UK) Certificate of Origin, this righthand drive Fintail was manufactured on 24th November 1966 and assembled in South Africa during 1967. In 2016, the Fintail was repatriated back into Germany and later imported into the UK in 2017. Today, this 230 S looks very smart in its grey coachwork and contrasting red trim. The panel work is very straight and the brightwork is in good order throughout. The interior boasts its large comfortable seats that are fitted with a centre armrest, front and rear.



Page 2 - For Sale & Wanted. 1966 Mercedes-Benz 230 S Fintail interior

On a recent test, the Mercedes-Benz started and drove easily via the automatic gearbox. The driver is sat behind the stylish steering wheel and kept informed by the tall rectangular instrument panel. A file accompanies the car and includes a UK V5C registration document, a copy of the 1966 Daimler-Benz AG dispatch note, copies of the Republic of South Africa registration document and police export clearance and an MoT test certificate valid until August 2018. These large Germanic motor cars, although not the fastest, certainly provide style with comfort.



Page 2 - For Sale & Wanted. 1971 Fiat 500L Abarth Recreation

For Sale - 1971 Fiat 500L Abarth Recreation

Registration Number: OEU 583J
Chassis Number: 110F2838779
Engine Number: 110F0003046401
Odometer Reading: 65652km
Estimate: £10,000 - £12,000

FOR SALE - please call 07967 203007

The Fiat 500 surely needs little introduction. Suffice to say that this compact car became ripe for tuning with Abarth leading the way in converting them into successful fast road and racing cars of the period. With genuine Abarth models now seeing some extraordinary prices, it is no surprise that many have been converted to replicate these versions of the Fiat 500.

This lovely Fiat 500 L was discovered in Parma, Northern Italy in early 2017 and imported into the UK later in October. The Fiat was found to be in remarkable condition; easily confirmed by an overall inspection of the coachwork and, in particular, we encourage you to take a look at the undersides whose condition reflects that of the topsides. Mechanically, the car drives very well, the 499cc engine mated to an all-synchromesh 4-speed gearbox, feeling more powerful than a standard car. The brakes have been overhauled and new shock absorbers fitted all around. Further works include modification to an Abarth Recreation which involved over £1,500 of specialist parts being used and included Jaeger instruments, wheels, exhaust, rocker cam cover, fuel tank, sump, grill, open engine cover modification and mirrors. The original odometer reads 65652km; however, with the fitment of the new Jaeger odometer, the reading is now zero miles.

This Fiat 500 will arrive at the sale with an MoT test certificate valid until November 2018 and a UK registration. Finished in the attractive combination of Fiat white with contrasting red interior, this is an exquisite example that has been very well executed; a fact that the true enthusiast will surely not miss.

For Sale - 1965 Mercedes-Benz 190c Fintail

Registration Number: ELA 503C
Chassis Number: 11001022111990
Engine Number: 12192422005863
Odometer Reading: 55200

SOLD - £9,500

•Righthand drive
•Rear seat belts
•Enormous boot space

We are delighted to present this 1965 first series (1961 – 1965), Mercedes-Benz 190c Heckflosse, or Fintail as it is commonly known. The prominent white coachwork, with its elegant fins and curvaceous bonnet, is in very good order and is complemented by the contrasting red, tough and stylish M-B Tex interior, noted for its comfort, space and vertically designed odometer. In the rear, the occupants also benefit from the additional seat belts; an important safety factor today. On a recent test, the Fintail’s 1897cc four-cylinder petrol engine pulled well with gear changes transmitted through the automatic gearbox whilst the brakes, with discs at the front and drums at the rear, drew the Mercedes to a reassuring halt. This is a righthand drive example that was first registered in Copthorne,
Sussex on 6th April 1965, to a Mr Herbert Victor White as noted upon the original log book. The accompanying history file includes records of recent works totalling in the region of £7,500, the original green log book, old MoT test certificates, a current MoT test certificate valid until 30th August 2018, a UK V5 registration document, letters of correspondence and a copy of a recent article featuring this 190c in Classic Mercedes Magazine.

These classic Mercedes-Benz motor cars are now being recognised in a market where it is becoming ever more difficult to find good examples of a marque at reasonable prices. With comfort and space, especially in view of the enormous boot space, commanding grill and acres of brightwork, we are sure that this Fintail will find a lucky new owner to enjoy the classic Mercedes-Benz experience and ideal for Goodwood (picnic hamper not included).
