1990(G) Mazda MX5 Mk1


Bright Red with Anthracite cloth interior and as new Black soft top. Lovely rare specification as this has the automatic gearbox, power steering, air-conditioning ( not tested yet ), electric windows, wind deflector, CD stereo system, factory alloy wheels, chrome roll bars, SS twin exit exhaust system, only 89,000 miles recorded with bills and old MOTs and in superb condition throughout. There are very few early MX5s still on the road and most of the examples left are in very poor condition, this is the exception to the rule as it has been garaged and used sparingly as a second car for many years. Excellent value and usable every day or as a weekend classic.

This wasn’t due to any issue or faults, just something we’ve undertaken to give the next owner the peace of mind that this and the 2yr engine warranty it comes with obviously brings.

JENSEN INTERCEPTOR MKI (PVC 111G) - Cropredy Bridge Garage

JENSEN INTERCEPTOR Mk I

Launched at the ’66 Earls Court Motorshow, the Carrozeria Touring Designed Interceptor was the latest car from Jensen.
The early cars were built by Vignale in Italy before production was moved to the West Bromwich factory.
In mid-1969 the front suspension was redesigned replacing the king-pin with independent, coil sprung, ball jointed wishbones and telescopic dampers. The dual piston Dunlop callipers were replaced with Girling triple piston units which endlessly improved braking. Power steering was standard fitment.

Here we have a late model MKI which benefited from the ongoing updates over the three years of MKI production from 1966-1969.

wood’ and complemented by a gold coach line, this MKI certainly looks every inch the Italian designed ‘60’s GT car. The interior has been recently re-trimmed in light tan leather and the car retains its original centre console veneer which has a nice patina. This is a particularly nice MKI which has been well maintained and drives beautifully. The engine is torquey and responsive and the transmission has benefitted from a very recent fully rebuilt and reconditioned axle.

Interceptor MKI’s are rare at best, let alone ones of this standard.

ABOUT THE FORD THUNDER BIRD: Third generation 1961-1963 The Thunderbird was redesigned for 1961 with sleeker styling that gave the car a distinctively bullet-like appearance. A new engine, the 390 cu in (6.4 L) V8, was the standard and only engine initially offered in the Thunderbird. The V8 produced 300 horsepower (220 kW) and was mated to a 3-speed automatic transmission. The new Thunderbird was immediately well received with 73,051 sold for 1961. A vinyl-roofed Landau option with simulated S-bars was added to the Thunderbird for 1962 as was a Sports Roadster package for convertible models. The Sports Roadster included 48-spoke Kelsey Hayes-designed wire wheels and a special fiberglass tonneau cover for the rear seats which gave the car the appearance of a two-seat roadster like the original Thunderbird. The Sports Roadster package was slow-selling due the high price of the package and complexity of the tonneau cover, resulting in few Thunderbirds being equipped with it. Newly optional for 1962 was an upgraded version of the 390 cu in (6.4 L) V8 called the "M-Code" The M-Code version of the 390 cu in (6.4 L) V8 was equipped with three two-barrel Holley carburetors and could produce 340 horsepower (250 kW). M-Code V8 Thunderbirds are exceptionally rare with only 200 being sold between 1962 and 1963. For 1963 only, Y-code cars could come equipped with the same 390 cubic inch V-8 also equipped by the factory with tri-power carburetors only if the buyer desired air conditioning. Few other changes were made to the Thunderbird for 1963 as Ford prepared to introduce a new version for 1964. A horizontal styling line was added that ran from the point where bumper and fender meet back through the door and angled down. Small diagonal chrome bars were added in this area on the door.

1996 LOTUS ESPRIT V8 ARUN LTD WEST SUSSEX

BROUGHT TO YOU BY:

1996 LOTUS ESPRIT V8

Firs registered by Lotus Cars in June 1996 (N Reg) this car was first kept by a Senior Partner in a large well known Accountancy Firm. The last owner a garage proprietor acquired the car in 2006.
In 1996 the Esprit V8 used Lotus' self-developed all-aluminium, twin-turbocharged (Garrett T25/60 turbos) V8, code-named Type 918. The Type 918 engine was de-tuned from a potential 500 bhp to 350 bhp to prevent gearbox damage. In period tests, zero to 60 mph came in at 4.4 seconds and top speeds of over 175 mph were claimed to have been achieved.
This Lotus has always been well maintained as confirmed when we contacted the enthusiastic previous owner. He has confirmed that in his ownership he has carried out an engine rebuild with a new crank, turbos, camshafts and clutch for good measure; plus further significant works including new brakes, headlights and tyres. 
With comparable 1990's super cars from exotic marques increasing in value, it can only be a matter of time before Lotus's Esprit follows suit.


Arun Ltd makes every effort to ensure that the information on this advertisement is accurate. Specification of each car may vary from what is listed here. All statements as to provenance and condition are given as opinions only and are given in good faith. Please check with a member of staff before purchase.

VIEWING STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT



1971 LAND ROVER RANGE ROVER
£49,995
1971 Range Rover Suffix A 56,000 recorded miles Finished in bahama gold with palomino interior A very nice early Range Rover 2-door which retains all of the important features which so many of these cars loose as previous owners updated and modernised them with parts from newer vehicles. This particular car still retains its PVC palomino interior which is in lovely order. The previous owner located 2 unused NOS seat bases to replace the cracked originals (these are almost impossible to source and can change hands for �3,000 each). The moulded headlining is in great shape, as are the PVC floors and transmission tunnel mat along with the other no longer available interior parts. It also has a complete tool kit, jack and foot pump. The outside is equally superb with very straight bodywork & paint and superb panel gaps. It retains all of the correct features such as the Wingard mirrors, badges, and correct wheels fitted with period Michelin tyres. It also happens to be the nicest early Range Rover that I have ever had the pleasure of driving.
