1965 FORD MUSTANG 2-Door COUPE

The Ford Mustang was introduced in 1964. Based on the very basic Ford Falcon mechanicals the car was never intended to be in production up to today. It was an overnight sensation. Ford had literally unleashed a beast. The American public and press went wild for the car.
Ford had to revamp their sales expectations and ramp up production to cope with demand.  People were prepared to wait for this car and almost overnight it became the legend it is today. It was easy to tune and was the archetypal street racer of its day. Ford have recently re introduced the Mustang to the UK and it is sold out for the next few years. It is also the most requested rental car in the US today.
Our car was a complete restoration project when we bought it. Over the past 6 months we have restored this car in its entirety. It is resplendent in Highland Green with Black Vinyl upholstery. Its engine is the rare 3.3 Litre Straight 6 with 3 speed manual transmission.  Arguably the rarest of its type in 2 door notchback form. A delightful standard car and very economical to run.

1924 SUNBEAM 20/60 TOURER

£58,950


The original Sunbeam Company was founded in 1899 by John Marston and was to rise rapidly to become one of Britain’s premier marques. Before the outbreak of the Great War, the company had already achieved an enviable record in competition, with the cars setting a number of records at Brooklands.
Sunbeam were also to hold the World Land Speed Record on several occasions and by 1927, Major Henry Segrave’s 1000 hp Sunbeam raised the record to 203 mph. This was later to be raised to 231 mph by Segrave, driving the legendary ‘Golden Arrow’ Sunbeam at Daytona Beach on 11th March 1929.
Among the fine range of models of the 1920’s, the 20/60, which was introduced at the 1923 Motor Show, was particularly well regarded, being considered by many to be a better car than the Rolls-Royce 20. Powered by an OHV 3.2 litre engine with a seven bearing crankshaft, the 20/60 was capable of 70 mph when fitted with Tourer coachwork and the motoring press of the time were most impressed by its refinement and advanced specification, which included four wheel brakes.
Offered for sale here is a fine example of the 20/60 Tourer, dating from 1924. Understood to have been the subject of a restoration from the bare chassis during the 1980’s, it is presented in excellent all round condition, having been carefully and regularly maintained by the present owner. Fitted with a rear passenger Auster screen, this motor car performs very well and comes into its own on longer journeys. The four wheel brakes inspire confidence and the driving experience belies the fact that the car is 93 years old.
Representing remarkable value for a motor car of this quality, this delightful Vintage Sunbeam is ready to provide much pleasure and pride of ownership to its next custodian. A considerable file of paperwork is provided.


For more information please call me on 07710-364945 or 01420-474919.
We are located south of the Hindhead Tunnel (A3) between Petersfield and Alton.
Viewing strictly by prior appointment please.
Delivery can be arranged at very competitive rates.

1969 FERRARI 365GT 2+2

The Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 had its grand debut at the 1967 Paris Salon as the replacement for the popular 330 GT 2+2. Its styling owes much to the rare and wonderful 500 Superfast, with the same elegant oval grille, sweeping nose and fastback profile. 

Under the bonnet is a 4.4-litre Tipo 245 Colombo V12, producing some 320hp, which is coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox. A key innovation on the 365 GT 2+2 was the hydropneumatic self-levelling independent rear suspension, which maintains a consistent ride height regardless of load. 
Unlike so many 2+2s, the rear seats of the 365 GT offer genuine comfort in accommodating passengers, with deep cushioned backrests and leather-trimmed armrests.  
The spacious interior also features conveniences such as air-conditioning and electric windows, with beautiful detailing to the switchgear throughout the cabin. 
This particular Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 is presented in the handsome colour combination of Blu Chiaro with Crema hide and blue carpets and sits upon the more desirable Borrani wheels

The fantastic history file which accompanies this Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 has well-documented evidence of the extensive servicing undertaken . In addition, the numerous other invoices and MOTs which show the care and attention that has been lavished upon this vehicle. 
These beautiful and luxurious Grand Tourers are becoming increasingly sought after. This particular car is a lovely, highly original example that now shows 96,200 miles from new.

1991 PORSCHE 944 S2 CABRIOLET - Fast Classics, Bramley, Surrey

1991 PORSCHE 944 S2 CABRIOLET


MODEL HISTORY

The 944 was Porsche’s mid range sports car positioned between the 924 and 911. It uses a rear-wheel drive water cooled 4 cylinder engine mounted at the front of the car, the gearbox is mounted at the rear providing better weight distribution which results in one of the best handling cars to come out of the 80′s.
The aim of the car was to provide a luxurious long distance cruiser as well as an exciting powerful road car. Its body was based upon the 924 Carrera GT, like the 924 it has a sloping glass hatchback providing a practical luggage storage area. The sunroof was a popular option as it was a removable metal panel providing a near Targa like open road experience. The 944 was introduced for sale in 1982 and ran on for 10 years, it came in either a coupe 2+2 body or a very attractive Cabriolet.
There were several models made but it’s the S2 Cabriolet that is featured here. The S2′s engine capacity was raised to 3-litres making it the largest 4 cylinder engine in the world at the time and it provided an impressive 211bhp and 207lb of torque. It was Porsche’s official replacement to the 220bhp Turbo and uses many of that car’s chassis components including its stronger trans-axle, drive-shafts, brakes, wheels and tyres. It looks just like a Turbo too – the wrap-around plastic bumper/spoiler smooths its snout, simple and attractive disc alloys fill its flared arches, and the under slung rear wing firms up its tail styling. When launched it’s main competition came from the Audi Quattro and Lotus Esprit Turbo, the S2 out accelerated the Quattro in 0-60 and 1/4 mile sprints and was just a smidgen behind the Esprit but its main trump card was its flexibility; in 4th gear, every 20mph increment from 10-100mph takes less than 7 seconds. No turbocharged car of the time could match this consistency nor deliver the sort of effortless and decisive progress. This smooth power delivery gives the S2 the throttle sensitivity for some predictable and entertaining cornering.

EQUIPMENT

Electric Windows, Electric mirrors, Electric Convertible Hood, Electric Front Seats, AC, Climate control, Leather Upholstery, Panasonic AlphaTuner cassett player, FM/AM, Immobiliser, Cigar lighter, ash tray, Digital clock.

EXTERIOR

The 944 continues to prosper through a sustained marriage of both style and substance, particularly with this example resplendent in Crystal Silver Metallic. The paintwork has a delightfully consistent hue throughout.
The bonnet, wings and doors all line up as they should, with excellent panel fit. The navy blue hood is a beautiful contrast to the lustrous paint work and shows in sublime condition with no scratches or marks; even the white stitching presents well with no dis-colouring.
Trims, rubbers and plastics retain excellent original integrity with lights free of cracks or moisture. Further indications of the very low mileage covered by this example.

INTERIOR
The Midnight blue interior compliments the exterior wonderfully well, with dark blue carpets again offering layers in the cabin to balance the aesthetic. The perforated leather seats retain excellent comfort and feel firm yet supple to the touch.
Pleasingly all carpets and gearbox surround are free from any unsightly marks or stains. The new electric hood operates smoothly and without fuss whilst the original Panasonic head unit contributes to in-car entertainment.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION

Engine and drivetrain are both in fine fettle with minimal mileage covered. Ignition is without hesitation and the car settles to a steady idle, with clutch and engagement positive and smooth.
As for the engine bay itself, presentation is similar to both exterior and interior; extremely clean, tidy and with no signs of abuse.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES

The series 90 wheels are beautiful in their simplicity with this set unmarked and wrapped in excellent premium tyres all round.
The braking system works as it should with the discs showing no signs of major wear, the car feels tight and true.

HISTORY FILE

This 944 was supplied new to Official Porsche Centre Cumbria and has been in the custody of just three previous owners.
Built in the last year of 944 production, this example presents as it should with such little mileage covered since new. Its mileage backed up by all past MOT certificates.
The car’s history file contains all the relevant records, invoices, leather wallet, service manuals and all it’s previous MOT’s.
