100 A 1978 MG Midget 1500, registration number WJT 846S, chassis number GAN6-205284G, engine number 55739, red. This rubber bumper Midget has been with the current owner since 2002. Bought as a long term restoration project, a lack of spare time and work commitments unfortunately conspired to put the project on hold. The vendor informs us that the shell is basically sound, with repair sections having been put into the body as necessary. The paint finish is reasonable and all the running gear is present. The carburettors have been removed for repair and there is an Ashley fastback hard top accompanying the MG. This MG Midget is a worthwhile restoration project for someone and hopefully it will not take the next owner ten years to complete. V5C, no current MOT or tax See illustration 500 - 600

101 A 1995 BMW 323i Coup, registration number N941 ELU, Boston green. This well maintained automatic BMW Coup has a full tan leather interior. Other luxury refinements include 47 . electric sunroof, windows and Pioneer CD player. Recently the car has had a new battery, alternator and sixteen inch, seven spoke BMW alloy wheels. 48 A Ford T commercial radiator surround and These ultimate driving machines make excellent core 20 - 30 53 There will be an option to purchase on the next everyday cars and will surely become a future five lots: Eight Rolls Royce (Crewe) tool store classic. V5C, MOT to October 2012, tax TBA boxes (8) 40 - 60 See illustration 900 - 1100 46 . 49 A Derby Bentley chrome radiator surround

54 Eight Rolls Royce (Crewe) tool store boxes (8) 40 - 60 50 An AA patrolman's uniform, comprising jacket, jumper, shirt and trousers (4) 30 - 50 55 Eight Rolls Royce (Crewe) tool store boxes (8) 40 - 60 102 A Trojan Toraktor MKIII, red. This very rare mini tractor is one of only approximately 500 made my Trojan Ltd of Croydon between 1961 and 1964. A serious work tool rather than a child's toy, it was intended to be used by market gardeners, small holders or around a large garden. 56 Eight Rolls Royce (Crewe) tool store boxes (8) The MKIII Toraktor is powered by a 98cc Clinton 40 - 60 3.5 bhp four stroke engine, driving a belt final drive with two forward and one reverse speed. It also has diff locks and rear brakes. This particular Toraktor has been part of a private collection for the last twenty years and would appear in original condition apart from having had new rear tyres

which were replaced due to perishing. It comes today's roads and as such are becoming a with an original sales brochure, operating and collector's vehicle of the future. V5C, MOT TBA, maintenance instructions and a list of optional no current tax See library illustration 700 - 900 equipment. See illustration 1500 - 1700

110 A 1959 BSA C15, registration number OCH 520, maroon. In 1958, BSA introduced a new series of unit-construction overhead valve singles, initially in 250 cc form. The engine capacity would grow in size to 350 cc and eventually 450 cc. The C15 range of motorcycles were basic commuter bikes, which would be superseded by the B25 Barracuda. This particular C15 is in very original condition and has just passed an MOT, which will enable the next owner to enjoy the motorcycle immediately. V5C, MOT to January 2013, tax exempt See illustration 1700 - 1900

106 . 107 . 103 A 1986 Moto Morini 350 K2, unregistered, frame number 350K224630D, engine number 24630, red. The K series of Moto Morini motorcycles were introduced in 1981, employing electric start, cast alloy wheels and twin front disc brakes and incorporating the same V twin engine as previous models. The K2 variant was introduced in 1984 with all new body work, incorporating a single seat and tank unit and frame mounted fairing and belly pan. Always having great handling and being lightweight, they became a firm favourite with lady riders. This K2 is in excellent condition, and being unregistered, gives the next purchaser the chance to be the first registered keeper. No documentation, MOT or tax See illustration 2000 - 2200 108 A 1976 Zetor 4718 tractor, chassis number 13857, engine number 4710/1508, red. This two registered owner two wheel drive tractor has been with the second registered owner for approximately twenty years. The rear tyres have decent tread, there is a safety cab fitted and it starts on the button. Being quite a compact machine, with a 47 bhp engine it would be an ideal tractor for a smallholder or with light restoration, it could be shown. Unfortunately the registration documents have been lost, but a V62 document with all relevant details accompanies the tractor, which would allow a new registration and V5C to be issued See illustration 1500 - 1700

111 A 1995 Jaguar XJ6 300, registration number ELZ 2569, Solent blue. This well equipped 3.2 litre automatic Jaguar, has a full white leather and walnut interior, there is a full service history with a stamped service book (twelve stamps) and other receipts. The vendor informs us that the Jaguar has been meticulously maintained and always garaged. These modern Jaguars offer excellent value for money and have all the luxury refinements one could ever wish for. V5C, MOT to September 2012, taxed to March 2012 See illustration 1400 - 1600

109 A 1982 Austin Mini City, registration number 104 A late Victorian governess cart, with rear EYB 848Y, chassis number entrance, hickory spoked wheels and black SAXXL2S1010116559, engine number 550237, coachwork with red coach lines See illustration blue. The iconic Mini is a car for all eventualities; 1000 - 1300 it can be a daily runabout, historic rally car, race car or concours queen. This particular Mini City would make a great starter classic or second car. The vendor informs us she starts and runs well and is in generally tidy condition, but would benefit from some cosmetic tender loving care in the future. V5C, MOT to October 2012, currently on SORN See illustration 600 - 800

112 A 1993 VW Golf GTi Rivage convertible, registration number K194 FYL, chassis number WVW222152NK035144, engine number DX161539, metallic blue. This rare VW Golf limited edition convertible has been enthusiast maintained all its life with no expense spared. It has recently been fitted with a new blue mohair hood and re-trimmed Alcantara interior. There is a vast history file accompanying the car with receipts for thousands of pounds. With MKIII Golfs becoming ever more popular and rare, this example is surely a car for a VW collector. V5, V5C, MOT to June 2012, tax TBA See illustration 5000 - 5500

105 A 1986 Peugeot 205 CTi 1600 cc, registration number D819 HBP, graphite grey. This two lady owner CTi has been with the second owner since 1999; the wife of a well-known classic car dealer. The car has seen very little use over the last four or five years and it is hoped that the car will be offered with a new MOT for the auction. Peugeot CTi's are becoming an increasingly rare sight on

113 A 1981 Honda CB650 Custom, registration number RFX 169W, blue. This CB650 was first registered on 2nd April 1997, it is in original specification apart from the addition of a Laser 4 into 1 performance exhaust. The vendor informs us that the bike is running well but will require a general safety check and service, after a period of inactivity, before obtaining a new MOT and taking to the road once again. V5C, no current MOT, currently on SORN See illustration 1700 - 1900

115 . 116 A 1972 Austin Mini 850 van, registration number 620 VYB, chassis number XAV1665821A, green. The Mini van is now a rare sight on British roads, as being used as workhorses and grass track racers hastened their demise. This two owner Mini van was purchased by a Mr P H K Weeks, Lullington Court Farm, Lullington, Frome in 1972, it remained in his possession until 2006, when the current owner purchased it. It is presented in mainly original condition but has received a few small localised repairs to the body. The Mini was last used on the road in 2008 and has been in dry storage since. The odometer is currently reading just over 23,000 miles and the vendor believes that this could be the original mileage, but it must be stated that there isn't any history to substantiate this. With Mini vans and other small commercials becoming very collectible with enthusiasts, this original van would be a great addition to a Mini collection. V5C, ***MOT to February 2013***, currently on SORN See illustration 2500 - 2800

118 WITHDRAWN: A 1961 Peugeot 403B Estate, registration number 580 BYX, chassis number 2886046, engine number 2886046, grey. Peugeots Pininfarina designed range of cars was launched in 1955 and would sell over one million units in a thirteen year production run. Available initially as a saloon only for the first two years, the estate and cabriolet versions would follow. This very rare right hand drive estate version has had only one owner/driver from new. It was initially registered in his company name (The Lorraine Engineering Company Limited, 12/14 Westbury Mews, London SW5) as his company car and then registered in his own name upon retirement. In recent years the car has been kept in dry storage so will require the usual recommissioning and safety checks before obtaining a new MOT. There is a large history file with RF60, maintenance receipts and general ephemera. V5C, no current MOT or tax See illustration 1500 - 1700

114 EXTRA LOT: A 1998 Rover Mini Cooper 1.3i, registration number R121 DOK, chassis number SAXXNNA2EWD153106, engine number 12A2LK70362251, green with white roof and racing stripes. The Mini and particularly the hot Cooper versions were the darlings of the Swinging Sixties. Equally at home down the Kings Road, parked outside a stately home or doing the daily commute. This particular classic Mini Cooper has been with the present owner since 2006. It has always lived in a dehumidified garage during his ownership and the recorded mileage of 74,700 miles is believed to be genuine. Servicing and upkeep has always been to a high standard including a front end respray and fitting of a full length Webasto sunroof in 2006 and more recently, a new rear exhaust and catalytic converter were fitted in 2010. This well maintained Mini Cooper is now only for sale due to a lack of use (10,000 miles covered in the last six years) and the vendor feels that it deserves to have more use with a new enthusiastic owner. V5C, MOT to February 2013, taxed to February 2013 See illustration 2800 - 3200

117 A 1966 Daimler 2.5 litre V8 saloon, registration number PML 188E, chassis number A11395JBW, Regency red. The Daimler version of Jaguar's MKII incorporated the compact 2.5 litre V8 engine designed by Edward Turner. Aimed at a more conservative market than the sporting Jaguars, they appealed to bank managers, solicitors, doctors and other professionals. This four owner automatic Daimler has covered a believed 67,000 miles from new. The fourth owner acquired the car in 2009, where upon a programme of recommissioning took place. This included a full brake overhaul with new callipers, fuel pump, dynamo, headlights, water hoses, full stainless steel exhaust, a full service and other service items. The interior has grey leather seats and grey carpets and there is a Moto-Lite style wood rimmed steering wheel fitted. 2.5 litre Daimlers have all the style of their Jaguar stable mates but at a more affordable price. V5C, MOT to August 2012, tax exempt See illustration 3800 - 4200

119 A 1981 Ford Fiesta 1.1 GL, registration number UAD 774X, chassis number VS6BXXWPFBBA55009, engine number BA55009, crystal green. Ford's all new small three door popular hatchback was launched in 1976 to an appreciative public. The same basic design would remain in production until 1983, when the series two facelifted version came on stream. This very original two owner MKI Fiesta has covered a believed genuine 43,000 miles from new. The car has recently emerged from long term storage, where upon a programme of recommissioning and servicing took place to obtain a new MOT. Fiestas in this condition are becoming increasingly difficult to find and as such have become very collectible with enthusiasts. V5C, MOT to February 2013, taxed to July 2012 See illustration 2500 - 2800

believed to be genuine. Accompanying the car are owners manuals, radio instruction manual, service books, and some old MOTs. Low mileage and low ownership examples of Ford's hot hatchbacks are becoming increasingly rare and as such this XR3i will be a great addition to any Ford collection, or a very usable starter classic. V5C, MOT to September 2012, currently on SORN See illustration 1200 - 1400

was added to compliment the Roadster in 1965. Production continued until 1980 and various cosmetic changes took place throughout. The most visually obvious being the introduction of black rubber bumpers and increased ride height from 1975. This tax exempt chrome bumper Roadster has had a lady owner for the past eighteen years. Finished in tartan red (previous original colour harvest gold), a much more attractive colour, in my opinion. The interior is trimmed in black vinyl and there is a black hood fitted. With a current MOT and tax this MG B is capable of immediate use but would benefit from a little cosmetic tender loving care. V5C, MOT to April 2012, tax exempt See illustrations 3500 - 3800

120 A 1975 Rover P6 3500S, registration number YDO 501L, chassis number 48106477C, engine number 48106845C, yellow. Rover's all new P6 sports saloon arrived in 1963 to replace the old fashioned P4. With its angular body it was aimed squarely at the young executive market, taking on Ford's Zephyr 6/Zodiac and Jaguar's smaller engined MKII in the middle management sales war. Initially available with a two litre four cylinder engine, with either single carburettor or twin carburettors from 1966. The light weight Buick design V8 as first seen in the P5B became available in 1968 and was know as the P6 3500, with automatic transmission. A manual S version, the rarest of the breed, was launched in 1971. This rare S version rolled off the production line on 18th May 1973 and was registered on 1st January 1975. The interior is finished in black ambla with fawn carpets and head lining. The vendor informs us that this P6S is running and driving well and with its manual gearbox has a decent turn of speed and delivers reasonable fuel economy for a large V8 engined car. V5C, MOT to August 2012, no current tax See illustration 2800 - 3200

122 EXTRA LOT: A 1981 Mercedes Benz W123 230e, registration number BFH 418Y, manilla beige. The W123 series of Mercedes Benz saloons were always a firm favourite with German taxi drivers, with their excellent reliability and longevity. This particular 230e has been known by the present owner since he was three years old. It has a comprehensive service history with all manuals and numerous maintenance receipts. It has automatic transmission, central locking, walnut dashboard, original over mats, electric sunroof, original four mud flap set, power assisted steering and unusually for this model, a full beige leather interior. This well maintained and very original W123 would make an excellent everyday classic at a relatively inexpensive price. V5C, MOT to October 2012, taxed to June 2012 See illustration 1400 - 1600

125 A 1967 Morris Minor convertible, registration number HDL 242E, chassis number MA2S51171336, engine number H243282, old English white. The ever popular Morris Minor was the first British manufactured car to sell 1,000,000 units of a common design. This charming lady owned convertible is finished in the traditional colour scheme of old English white bodywork with red hood and interior. It was restored by a previous owner by the well known Morris Minor restorer Tim Lang. The vendor informs us that the car is in good general condition and has been used only in the summer to attend Morris Minor Club events, classic car shows and special occasions. She is now regrettably having to sell the car due to an impending house move where there isn't any garaging. V5C, MOT to August 2012, tax exempt See illustrations 2800 - 3200

121 A 1987 Ford Escort XR3i, registration number E444 TYA, chassis number SFABXXBBABHY13276, engine number HY13276, red. Ford's range of XR specification Escorts, have always been a firm favourite with performance minded motorists. Ford introduced the XR3 normally aspirated version in 1981, to compete with VW's Golf GTi. The fuel injected XR3i was launched in 1983 and stayed in production until 1990, when the MKV arrived. The Ford Escort remained part of the Ford range until 2000 when the all new Ford Focus became available. The MKIV XR3i offered for auction has only had three registered keepers, all residing in the West Country. The current lady owner acquired the Escort in 1981 from a garage in Yeovil. The previous owners were a Mr D K Dunn of Sherborne, Dorset and Mr C A J Pavord who resided in Crewkerne, Somerset. Finished in bright red with Raven cloth interior, this Escort further benefits from having factory fitted sunroof, five speed gearbox, alloy wheels and front spot lamps. The current recorded mileage of 53,000 miles is

123 EXTRA LOT: A 1995 Volvo 440 si, registration number M127 LRU, chassis number XLBKC793SEC644546, engine number D19000007255, white. This automatic hatchback has only had one owner. The recorded mileage of 41,000 is believed to be correct with all MOTs, service history and handbooks to substantiate. This particular 440 has quite a high specification, having electric windows and sunroof with electric heated seats. Low mileage diesel Volvo 440s are quite rare and this example would make a great everyday runabout. V5C, MOT to April 2012, no current tax 1250 - 1450 124 A 1972 MG B Roaster, registration number FKO 180L, red. The MG B has a significant birthday in 2012 reaching the grand old age of 50! Introduced in 1962 to replace the MGA, it was quite a departure from previous models as they had monocoque bodies and not a separate chassis as used in all previous MG models. A GT version

126 A 1990 Ford Escort MKIV XR3i, registration number G391 XEU, chassis number SFADXXBBABLL00231, engine number LL00231, red. This immaculate MKIV XR3i has had three registered keepers. The odometer reading is just over 73,000 miles which is substantiated with a full service history. The majority of which has been carried out by Dean Motors of Bridgwater, Somerset. The vendor informs us that the bodyshell has recently been resprayed due to the paintwork fading, and the bodyshell was completely rust free before the paint was applied. The interior is equally clean with grey cloth seats and carpets, electric

windows, central locking, stereo radio cassette and factory fitted glass sunroof. The sporting XR3i is now a firm favourite with Ford enthusiasts, and this Escort would certainly enhance any collection. V5C, MOT to April 2012, taxed to July 2012 See illustrations 2500 - 2800

unleaded head, painted wire wheels, reconditioned gearbox, new wiring loom, suspension, stainless steel exhaust and numerous other components associated with a full restoration. Since the initial rebuild, the vendor has maintained the MG with no expense spared. The history file contains an album of photographs showing the rebuild in progress, maintenance receipts for many thousands of pounds, old MOTs and correspondence. This very well maintained Midget is only for sale due to the untimely death of the vendor's husband and half of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to a cancer charity. V5C, MOT to June 2012, tax exempt See illustrations 3200 - 3600

The mileage of just over 7,000 miles can be verified by a full service history, which includes the original bill of sale from Hollingsworths for 12,999.99, this included the fitting of an optional extra Ghia front grill. As one would expect from such a low mileage pampered car, the Raven cloth interior, engine, body and boot are all in superb factory original condition. The spare wheel is even unused.
