1970 JENSEN INTERCEPTOR II
£79,950





Finished in yellow with black leather interior
55,000 miles from new
Only one recorded lady owner form new


Supplied new by Jensen main agent Newbury Motors Ltd of Halesowen on 22 October 1970. Incredibly this stunning motor car has had only one registered owner since, a local lady who along with her husband completely and utterly cosseted and cherished her.
Since arriving with us we have commissioned a full strip-down and bare metal repaint at our trusted prize winning body-shop due to age related marks and imperfections. When stripped back the body was found to be in remarkable order, just as we expected. We also had some brightwork refinished, again not due to damage but minor age related fading, which we wanted perfected. Needles to say the re-fit included many new parts and new seals were used throughout. The results to this lengthy but sympathetic restoration are simply stunning. We have also given it a thorough mechanical check-over & service and can confirm she drives superbly.
This beautiful example comes complete with original service book, owners handbook, factory build sheets, original toolkit and a file of old MOT’s and invoices. This car offers a unique opportunity and is a very special example indeed of the rare Interceptor 2.

1965 ASTON MARTIN DB5 

 EX - ROBERT PLANT




There is no doubting the Aston Martin DB5’s classic credentials. With some justification, it is often referred to as the most famous car in the world. DB5s adorn collections worldwide. 

Of no doubt also are the credentials of Led Zeppelin. Rock anthems such as Stairway to Heaven, performed by Robert Plant CBE, have endured and with some justification. The band have become an icon of 20th-century popular culture. 

The Aston Martin DB5 we are delighted to offer, chassis number 1744/R, was built in 1965 and found its way into Robert Plant’s ownership in the early 1970s. Robert Plant, a West Midlands resident, held ownership until summer 1986, when it was sold to father and son collectors, also based in the West Midlands. Shortly thereafter the car was entrusted to Aston Martin agents, Chapman Spooner, for restorative works bringing the car to its current and exemplary condition. 

Entered into a number of AMOC and local Concours during the 1980s, the car remained in this ownership until 2008 when it was purchased by the current owner from Nicholas Mee & Co. Used very sparingly and kept in a controlled environment since 2008, yet regularly maintained by the owners local and respected Aston Martin Specialists. Mechanically excellent, with only the lightest signs of use, this iconic car can most accurately be described as having received, a Whole Lotta Love. [sic] 

Available to view now at our showrooms in West London.

1954 STUDEBAKER CHAMPION REGAL STARLINER COUPE


This stunning Studebaker Champion is a 1954 example finished in a Pastel Yellow with a Blue roof. It has the optional extra wheel discs and white wall tyres, with a dark brown interior. The car arrived in the UK in 2008 and comes with a comprehensive history containing various previous owner correspondence and invoices. One letter from the second owner confirms he bought the car from a Mrs Florence Grim (first owner) in 1968 and during his ownership in the US was a 100 point show car. The car was later sold to its third owner who kept the car many years. The car was advertised in the US in 2007 as a genuine 64,000-mile car, being sold by its third owner who confirmed the engine was overhauled in 2007. The car had been covering 100 miles annually for ten years and was sold to a Mayfair, London based Company Chairman and former Merchant Banker.

Expenditure since arriving in the UK from Ohio includes £1,500 spent on a fabricating and fitting a bespoke stainless steel exhaust system, £500 on work to include balancing the prop shaft, renewing door trims and an invoice for £2,200 details stripping and cleaning brakes, renewing rear spring eye bushes, rear spring eye nuts and bolts, new differential oil seal and cover plate gasket, new fuel tank sender unit, new prop shaft bearing rubbers, new gearbox seal, lubrication of all linkages and various new engine gaskets and seals. The paperwork also supports a new wiring loom and further trim carried out by its first UK owner. The Studebaker has arrived with us in strong mechanical order, driving exceptionally well and ready to use and enjoy. The car presents beautifully with lovely paintwork and has a very distinctive, stunning Coupe body. The upholstery has been beautifully kept and looks like a low mileage car and has clearly spent much of its life garaged.


The Studebaker Champion was a fabulously styled car from the peak of the glamorous 1950s era with the design penned by the renowned Raymond Loewy. No one understood the American Dream better than the Paris born Loewy, largely because he lived it. Loewy founded the world's first design consultancy in New York where he worked on various projects from designing the Lucky Strike cigarette packet (a product that he smoked through a solid gold cigarette holder), the Presidential aircraft Airforce One, Coca-Cola, Greyhound Buses and the lazy S of the Studebaker badge which was, in fact, his own handwriting. He was the founder of modern Industrial design and Studebaker gave Loewy full credit for styling most of its cars from 1938 through to 1956 and the two became synonymous with one another much more so than any other designer and car name.

 1935 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Barker Sports Saloon.

A lovely example of the sought after Continental model, in excellent condition mechanically, structurally and cosmetically. Nicely finished in black & red, with black leather upholstery and red carpets. Chromework, interior wood are also excellent, and an external sun visor with tinted glass has just been fitted, adding character and balance to the car's design. The engine has recently been overhauled, and following 2,000 miles of ‘shakedown’, is now running very well and driving nicely, with plenty of power, light steering, excellent brakes, etc. Expenditure over the last few years, fully documented in the large box file of history which comes with the car, amounts to something in the region of £85,000. New tyres just fitted, and offered MoT tested until October 2018.


Snippets: Petroleum, Animal Feeds & a Titled Family.
The first owner of 42UK was George Samuel Engle (1883/1944) - in 1918 he had changed his surname by deed poll from Engel to Engle. Engle was a senior manager of Asiatic Petroleum which was part of the Combined Petroleum Company which later became Shell; in the biography of Sir Henri Deterding written by Glyn Roberts – George Engle is referred to as “Secretary & prime mystery man of Asiatic Petroleum”. Within 3 years, 42UK had been sold to Richard Poole Silcock, a scion of R. Silcock & Sons, feed merchants later acquired & renamed BOCM Silcock. In 1909 Richard’s father Thomas Butler Silcock had commissioned T. H. Mawson & Son to design Arthfield House which was built in 1920, Mawson’s also did a garden layout at Thornton Hall and a woodland walk at Bleasdale Tower – this for Richard’s uncle W. A. Silcock. The Silcock family also bred pigs which were fed exclusively on their own products & the animals won many awards in the “Bacon from 1st Cross Pigs” with their Landrace cross Large Whites. Within 12 months, just before the outbreak of WWII the PII was acquired by Lady Effie Millington-Drake who had returned to the UK from Uraguay ahead of her husband Sir Eugen John Henry Vanderstegen Millington-Drake, they had been stationed in Uraguay since 1934 as Minister. Lady Effie was the daughter of the 1st Earl of Inchcape – businessman & colonial administrator in India who later became Chairman of the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company ("P&O"). Effie’s sister Elsie (1893/1928) was a lady of many talents - aviator, actress, & interior designer for P & O, she vanished whilst attempting an east-westerly Atlantic flight. When the Millington-Drake’s travelled they did so in style with 30 Louis Vuitton Suitcases & of course outfits from Worth for Lady Effie (an heiress in her own right). Sir Eugen entered the diplomatic service in 1912, his first posting was in St Petersburg, later placements included Paris, Buenos Aires, Bucharest, Copenhagen & Uruguay. Sir Eugen was a keen sportsman - this was reflected in that he served on Olympic committees in 1936 & 1948. After WWII 42UK was sold to G. H. Walford (1902/68) of Sherborne St John, a solicitor whose lineage can be traced back to the 13th Century.
