This is the first DMC we have had and definately wont be the last, I didn’t realise quite how cool they are, go back to the future before it’s too late and you can’t afford it. A truly superb example.

Daimler Sovereign 4.2 saloon, 1969 G registration. Pale blue with dark blue leather interior. Only 27,000 genuine miles from new with a lovely service history. This must be one of the best Daimler Sovereign’s in existence; the body work is faultless with the best shut lines you will see. The chrome is all the original and is superb and is a joy to polish. The interior is as perfect as you will find and it is a very comfortable place to be when cruising effortlessly in this 4.2 Automatic. This car has won many concours awards mainly in the eighties and nineties and it has been faultlessly maintained by the last owner for ten years. To do the bodywork on this Daimler to the standard it is would alone cost more that the asking price. It is a car that really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.



CORVETTE 454 CONVERTIBLE 1973 FULLY RESTORED

1973 Corvette 454 Convertible Silver

7.4 liters 454 BB auto, finished in silver with midnight blue interior, electric windows, power brakes, power steering and am/fm radio. Full documented restoration fifteen years ago by leading UK restorer Alan Faulkner-Stevens with matching numbers 454 engine rebuilt by Peter Knight , dry stored and lovingly maintained since. 450 miles since total rebuild. A pleasure to drive. All correct and gorgeous to look at and very rare being a 454 7.4 litre convertible.


CADILLAC COUPE DEVILLE CONVERTIBLE 1965 7.2 LITRE 427

Cadillac Coupe De Ville Convertible, 1965, 7.2 litre 427, dark metallic red with dark red and white leather interior. White electric soft top. 48,000 miles showing on the clock. I purchased this car about three years ago with the intention of improving it and using it, but unfortunately I have not had the time to do either. It is pretty much rust free car that was restored underneath before I purchased it, it was also running but now it wont which I think is either due to the starter being jammed or worst case possibly the automatic gearbox. The paintwork is in the original colour but it could do with repaint or at least some areas re done. The seats are really good as are the carpets but the door cards could do with retriming and the soft top has some tears on the sides at the back but it still has its glass rear window. The chrome is original so not perfect but with a bit of work could be acceptable. All in all this is a worth while project at the fraction of the price of a mint one. The convertible Coupe De Ville of the early to mid sixties are getting increasingly harder to find these days. The car is not UK registered but all duties have been paid and I have the relevant paperwork.



CHANG JIANG BMW R71 COMBINATION 1969

1968 Chang Jiang 750 combination, registration number NAV 245F, frame number 6811231, engine number 6810186, black. This Chang Jiang comes direct from a private collection and is presented in very good condition. The motorcycle

offers a close resemblance to a BMW R71, with BMW badging, black coachwork with white pin-striping but is a fraction of the price of an original. Also has detachable pinion seat and a reverse gear. The Russians issued drawings to the Chinese to make exact copies of the BMW R71 down to the last nut and bolt, so most parts are interchangeable with the R71. Fantastic condition throughout and excellent mechanically.

This very rare BJ40 is in excellent condition throughout with a rust free underneath and lovely paintwork.

1952 LAGONDA SERIES 1 2.6 SERVICE HISTORY , BLUE , CONVERTIBLE 2.6 LITRE

1952 Lagonda series one Drop Head Coupe 2.6 litre, dark blue with grey leather interior and black mohair soft top.


This Lagonda was purchased by a Mr Charlie Willment on the 1st January 1953; amazingly he owned the car until the late 80’s when he sold it to Mr Dennis Pearce. In 2004 it was sold to Yvonne (Mollie) Pipe and it has remained in her family since. Mrs Pipe had earlier formed her own Aston Martin Lagonda workshop. In April 2005 Mollie and the car attended The Royal Windsor St. George’s Day, Festival of Aston Martin; there is a photo of the car with the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. In September that year the car won 1st in class at the Kingston Lacey Aston Martin Concours. There is an AMOC badge for this and it was also in the monthly magazine. In June 2009 it participated in the 21st Anniversary London-Brighton Classic Car Run.


In 2010 Southern Classics (Sunbury on Thames) refurbished the bodywork and repainted it in the colour it is today, the chrome work was also re-done. The paintwork and chrome are absolutely first class throughout. Then in 2012 the Lagonda went to D Class to have the interior re-trimmed throughout and a new hood and tonneau cover made. They also refurbished all of the woodwork, door cards, and made a new hood frame, again first class workmanship throughout. The car also benefits from a full engine rebuild by an Aston Martin specialist, it runs very smoothly indeed and it is nice and quiet .


This very rare car remains in wonderful condition and is very pleasurable to drive. It has a large history file including the original buff log book and owners manual, photos of restoration work and pictures of the car at various events. Many old mot’s and receipts are also included some dating right back to its early days.


With the price of early Aston Martin’s increasing hugely on a daily basis this rare Lagonda will undoubtedly be a good investment for the future.

DUCATI 1000S CAFE RACER 2008 SPECIAL EDITION ONLY 1300 MILES!

The Ducati Sport 1000 series are mouth watering styled tributes to 70s motorcycles greats boasting modern thrills and mechanical s. Great as a look-at-me motorcycle and the detailing is exquisite but it’s neither a true sports bike nor year-round transport. For rarity, go for the limited edition Ducati Paul Smart 1000, for practicality the slightly dull, twin seat Ducati GT1000, but the best motorcycle on balance is the Ducati Sport 1000.

This matching no.s bike was purchased by the last owner from its first owner in 2009 with a mileage of 1860 kms- the odometer now reads only 2200 kms. In spite of its low mileage, the bike has been run regularly and serviced and stored as it should be. This bike is in perfect condition and is probably one of the best looking motorbikes you will find. The photographs just don’t do it justice, previously leading a pampered life in Monaco. Just been serviced and mot’d, all duties paid so ready for registration.
