All matching numbers chassis, engine, gearbox and paint colour: 1515 -G Irish Green, this 1970 Porsche 911T Karmann Coupe, 2.2 litre is Irish Green with Brown  Leatherette interior. This car has been re-painted in Sept 2016.
Optional equipment: US Equipment, Comfort Equipment, Tinted Windshield. Extensive work was done on the engine by the previous owner in the mid-eighties (receipts available). Recent work includes body work, paint job, new floors, interior (door pockets are original), upholstery, brakes and light engine work (cleaning and tune-up). Fitted with 15 inch Fuchs wheels and new tires. Runs and drives very well. The car is equipped with the original jack, owner's manual and spare tyre, as well as receipt history and the original certificate of authenticity

Offered here is a very original example of the sought after 911 T which was first registered in 1970. The bodywork is described as: "very bright with no rust, straight shut lines and nice body panels. The engine is very sweet and it drives beautifully."
Introduced at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show, the basic Porsche 911 design would run virtually unchanged for twenty-nine years. Ferdinand Porsche had been working on the design since the late fifties as a better performing replacement for the 356. Today, his design still underpins the production of Porsche AG of Stuttgart. Before long, the merits of using the Porsche 911 in competitive motorsport became apparent and history records it as one of the most successful campaigners of all time. From the 24 Hours of Le Mans to grass-roots motorsport, the 911 offered reliable performance in many guises.

1970 the C-Series 911 was introduced with a larger bore to give a capacity of 2165cc, producing 125bhp and now badged as a "T". Alterations to suspension points improved the handling and gave the steering a better on centre feel.

1967 TRIUMPH TR4A IRS



By 1968 the TR range was becoming quite old fashioned especially as its closest rival MG had a more modern “chassis less” model that was
cheaper and produced easily in much greater numbers.
So by 1968 Triumph began to move onto the 6 cylinder TR5 and 6 models finally ending the 16-year production of 4 cylinder engines.
This beautiful UK supplied always rhd example is one of the last produced and has only had 4 owners the last but one for 31 years and has enjoyed ongoing maintenance and a thorough restoration in the 1980s including mechanical work then hardly used since.

The quality of the work was obviously to a high standard as the car is still in great condition today with very good paintwork and chassis.
She is fitted with wire wheels, overdrive, with the all-important IRS rear axle.
There is a comprehensive history file with many specialist dealers having worked on her during the past 20 years and a photo record of the restoration.
More recent work includes under bonnet detailing, new wire wheels, hood, bumper rechrome etc.
On the road this is a throaty raw car with a good solid robust feel to it and performance is very good the overdrive providing an easy cruising speed.
She is a quintessential British sports-car that can only appreciate in value and must be one of the nicest available.
Supplied fully inspected, serviced and with a 12-month warranty.

PORSCHE 356 CONVERTIBLE D 1959
 
Les cabriolets avaient été fabriqués dès le début de la production de la 356, mais la première Porsche ouverte à avoir un impact significatif a été le Speedster, ajouté à la gamme en 1954 suite à son introduction réussie aux Etats-Unis avec un lot de 15 roadsters spéciaux. Avec ses ventes en déclin, le Speedster a été abandonné en 1958 et remplacé par le Convertible D plus civilisé, une voiture plus pratique avec un plus grand pare-brise, de vraies vitres latérales et des sièges plus confortables tout en conservant les jolies lignes de la carrosserie du Speedster original. Le convertible D a été construit sur le châssis du Speedster avec une ligne de caisse presque identique (9cm plus haute) et considéré comme une excellente amélioration par rapport à son prédécesseur.
Historic Cars
Avec le carrossier Reutter qui peinait à répondre à la demande toujours croissante de 356, la production des cabriolets fut sous-traitée par Porsche à un certain nombre de carrossiers différents. Le Convertible D est confié à Drauz de Heilbronn, d'où le suffixe 'D'. Puis lorsque la Porsche 356B restylée est arrivée en septembre 1959, la production du Convertible D a été transférée chez D'Ieteren à Bruxelles. Le modèle 356A Convertible D est l'un des plus rares des modèles de Porsche 356, avec seulement 1.331 fabriqués entre août 1958 et septembre 1959.
Historic Cars
Livrée neuve en Suède, notre 356 Convertible D a bénéficié d'une restauration de haut niveau et de quelques améliorations esthétiques à la demande de son actuel propriétaire : sangles de capot, grilles de phares, volant aluminium et bois, ou encore appuie-tête, mais aussi d'une préparation technique particulièrement aboutie : 4 freins à disques avec double circuit de freinage, suspensions Av et Ar réglables, moteur de 1720cm3 avec doubles carburateurs Weber et échappement type Carrera. Le moteur d'origine est quant à lui remisé dans une caisse.
Historic Cars
Cabriolets had been manufactured right from the start of 356 productions, but the first open Porsche to make a significant impact was the Speedster, introduced in 1954 following the successful reception in the USA with a batch of 15 special roadsters. With its sales declining, the Speedster was dropped in 1958 and replaced by the more civilised Convertible D, a more practical car than the Speedster boasting a larger protective windscreen, wind-up side windows and more comfortable seats while retaining the original's beautiful body lines. The D was built on the Speedster chassis with an almost identical body and considered to be a great improvement over the Speedster. Overall, the new car was 3½ inches taller.


With the famous coachbuilder Reutter struggling to keep up with the ever-increasing demand, Porsche sub-contracted cabriolet body construction to a number of different coachbuilders, Convertible D production being undertaken by Drauz of Heilbronn, hence the 'D' suffix. When the restyled Porsche 356B arrived in September 1959, the Convertible production transferred to D'Ieteren of Brussels. The 356A Convertible D model is one the rarest of Porsche 356 models, with only 1,331 made between August 1958 and September 1959.
Delivered new in Sweden, our 356 Convertible D has benefited from a high-level restoration and some aesthetic improvements as wanted by its current owner: bonnet leather straps, headlights grids, aluminium and wood steering wheel, headrest. But also a highly technical preparation: 4 discs brakes, double brake system, adjustable front and rear suspensions, a 1720cm3 engine with two Weber carbs and a Carrera type exhaust. The original engine's being stored in a crate.

1938 AUSTIN SIX 20hp LANDAULETTE

Probably the Finest 1938 Austin Six 20hp Mayfair Landaulette in existence. Totally restored to the last nut and bolt at no expense spared some 20 years ago. And probably without doubt a possible Concours de Elegance contender. This rare big six-cylinder Austin really has to be seen to be believed. If you want to know what it was like to own a brand new one in 1938 then try this. Finished in her original livery of Blue and Black with matching the interior. Original Japan leather drop down. Occasional seats, glass division. Chauffeur to passenger intercom. The quality of this car puts many Rolls-Royce's of the same era to shame. Full photographic evidence and bills of her restoration available.
