1996 Nissan 200 SX, 1998 cc. Registration number P713 SRH. Chassis number JN1GBAS14U0010758. Engine number SR20-278357.
Japanese cars were of little interest to UK enthusiasts in the '70s and '80s but that changed dramatically in the 1990's with the arrival of a whole slew of turbocharged road rockets like the Toyota Supra, Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi 3000GT which could give even Porsche and Ferrari drivers a fright. Nissan joined the fray with brutish sports models like the Skyline and the 300ZX and the smaller 180SX which immediately won the Car of the Year award when it was launched in Japan in 1989. Marketed as the 200SX in Europe, it used the rear-wheel drive Silvia S13 chassis mated to a 167bhp 1.8 turbo CA18DET engine with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed auto gearbox. Quick, capable and beautifully balanced, it was also eminently tunable and soon gained cult status on the burgeoning drift scene, power sliding its way around old airfields the length and breadth of the country. In 1994 the 200SX morphed into the longer, wider S14 version, now with a 2.0 engine. 
SRH was first registered in August 1996 and our vendor purchased it in February 1997, first in his business name and then from 2011 his own. During his ownership it has always been serviced with 15 stamps in the book, the last being at 64,184 miles in August 2017 since when the MOTs have taken the mileage to 65,508 miles. He has recently purchased a new car and this is now surplus to requirements.
It has had a new turbo fitted and the engine and gearbox are said to be in very good order, as is the interior which has a CD player fitted.
Sold with the V5C, MOT until December 2020, service book and other original books.

2002 Toyota Landcruiser Colorado GX 3.0 TD, 7 seater, 2,982 cc. Registration number PX52 KNV. Chassis number JTEBZ99J100036810. Engine number 1KD0944270.
The Colorado is one of the best rivals for a Land Rover Discovery, and much the same size. Like the Disco, it's very strong off-road, with standard high- and low-ratio gears, but pretty handy on Tarmac, too. It rides well most of the time, better even than a Land Rover in certain situations and much better than a Mitsubishi Shogun.
Unlike many rivals, it has rack and pinion steering, which gives better feedback. 
KNV is a 4 owner, full service history example that has now covered 121,000 miles that has only covered 15,000 miles in the last ten years.
Originally supplied by Border Toyota who have 7 service stamps, it then was bought by Unipart Williams who have stamped it 10 times. Recent work includes the fitting of a new petrol tank. 
The MOT history on the DVLA website shows a good solid machine, capable of many more years servic.

1985 Honda Civic CRX, 1488cc. Registration number B484 APU. Chassis number 0100900. Engine number 1201900.
The CR-X was manufactured by Honda between 1983 and 1991, being replaced by the CR-X del Sol. A hatchback variant, the first generation had a 1.5-litre four cylinder engine that returned record fuel economy figures. The CRX established the long bonnet/stubby deck look that defined Civic coupes for a decade. More significantly, it suggested that Honda created fun as well as transportation. The car was a sales success and spawned other, sportier cars.
APU was purchased new by Mrs McRae of Billericay on the 22nd February 1985 for £6,500 from the Dragon Motor Company of Leigh on Sea, retained for many years it passed to her nephew and has lead a seltered life, in 2006 the MOT was at 40,062 and now it has only risen to 50,000. Serviced in 2015 at 48,136 and MOT'd in March this year at 49,901.

2002 Nissan Micra Tempest, 998cc. Registration number YS52 BCE. Chassis number SJNEAAK11U4252514. Engine number 050072.
British-built Micra has 16-valve engines for good performance and reasonable refinement. Its tall body makes good use of interior space. Add in above-average reliability and fuel economy, plus the fact it's nice to drive, and Micra is a top used supermini choice. Revised models from 1998 are safer than the original, have standard power steering and are becoming more affordable.
BCE is offered from a deceased estate. Purchased in April 2013, it has service receipts from 2015 at 37, 058 miles, 2016 at 40,253 miles, and 2018 at 41,142 miles. The last MOT expired in March 2019 since when it has been laid up, the mileage is 41,429 at present.
When a power pack was put on the battery it started at the first turn of the key and as it had been left with hand brake off the brakes were fine. It was driven onto a trailer for delivery to the auction.

2004 Volvo C70 T5GT, 2,319 cc. Registration number YH04 CYT. Chassis number YV1NC62K24J049465. Engine number 3331364.
The C70 is a two-door, four-passenger car marketed from 1996 to 2013 across two generations, the first generation (1996-2005) was available as both a coupé (1996-2002)[1] and softtop convertible (1997-2005). The second generation (2006-2013) was available as a retractable hardtop convertible.
The front clearly linked to Volvo, while the rest of the body was significantly curvier than anything previously released by the company, it heralded a new design direction that would characterise many future models. Freedom of choice for the customer was important, and there were 17 different paint colours to choose between, along with solid, metallic and pearl finishes. With 40 different interior combinations, with differences in material and colours, the choices were almost endless. It was crucial that the speed matched the appearance. The C70 was therefore launched exclusively with five-cylinder turbo engines. The strongest engine, at 2.3 litres and 240 hp, was shared with the Volvo 850R.
CYT was first registered in March 2004 and our vendor, the third owner bought it in October 2010 when the mileage was 79,533 miles and has had it serviced by Riverside Volvo ever since; amongst its list of extras are heated seats and a sat nav system. Also included are a wind deflector and exterior car cover, together with two keys. It is only being sold as the vendor has just bought a dog and needs a more practical car. Averaging less than 3,000 miles per year the mileage now is some 104,000, with full Volvo service history.
Sold with the V5C, MOT until June 2021, full MOT history, receipt folder and service book.

1988 Trabant P601K Universal (estate), Registration number, unregistered, NOVA 19E262245 . Chassis number4702475. Engine number TBC.
The Trabant 601 (or Trabant P601 series) was a Trabant model produced by VEB Sachsenring in Zwickau, Saxony. It was the third generation of the model, built for the longest production time, from 1963 to 1990. Few cars hold such an iconic place in European history as the humble Trabant, the East German people's car that became a symbol of freedom at the fall of the Berlin Wall. Derided in the west as the very essence of communist inefficiency and incompetence - noisy, smoky, slow and uncomfortable - the car is the subject of more myths and misinformation than almost any other.
The body is Duroplast, created by mixing phenolic resin - a by-product of the chemical dying industry - with cotton fibre and heating in a press.
Externally, the car was to remain virtually unchanged for 27 years, although there were many changes under the skin, including upgrades to the two stroke engine, braking system, electrics, suspension, dashboard displays and the introduction of electronic ignition.
A dashboard fuel gauge was offered as an optional extra from 1984 onwards, drivers previously having to check the levels using a calibrated dipstick that also helped calculate the correct amount of oil to add when filling up. Later two-stroke cars featured a clear plastic tube fitted between the fuel hose and the top of the fuel tank, which allowed the driver to visually check the fuel level without taking the cap off the tank and using the dipstick.
This Trabant was built in August 1988 and spent its life in Bulgaria before being brought to the UK in 2017 and being placed in storage. In original condition it is in running order, although the interior could do with a make over.

Mercedes have been producing an SL (Sport Leicht or Sport Lightweight) model since 1954 when the landmark 300SL was unveiled. The similarly styled, but mechanically unrelated, 190 followed in 1955. The second generation SLs began with in 1963. It was distinguished by its lower waistline, big curved screens and a distinctive optional hardtop that earned the model its nickname of 'Pagoda'. The larger, third generation SL (R107) was launched in 1971, the car featured a two-door monocoque body shell with independent suspension all round - double wishbone and coil springs at the front and semi-trailing arms and coil springs at the rear. Braking was by discs all round - ventilated on the front. The 2.8-litre (280SL) appeared in mainland Europe in 1974. The latter became available in the UK from October 1980 and remained in production until 1985.
ABM has been in long term ownership since 1989, and was last on the road in January 2006 when it failed its MOT at 153,703 miles, subsequently repaired it passed in the March with 153,735 miles. Stored since, it has recently been brought out and is running but in need of restoration.

From January 1974 to January 1982, Mercedes spent over ?600 million researching and developing the W201m subsequently saying it was 'massively over-engineered', and was launched in Germany on 9 December 1982. It was marketed in right-hand drive for the UK market from September 1983.
The 190 D was available with three different engines. The 2.0 L inline-four engine was the base engine, a 2.2-litre version, with the same power as the 2.0 L, was introduced in September 1983. The 2.5 L inline-five engine was available in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
BBU was first registered in August 1990 to Frank Leak who sold it to his friend Clive Houghton and then Gary McAusland in 2013. In 2014 it moved to Stanley Sargeant.
The service book shows Mercedes main dealers in 1993 at 4,927 miles, 1997 at 19,784 miles, 2004 at 28,883 miles and 2008 at 38,052, today the mileage is at some 62,000 which is backed up by it MOT history from 2006 until 2015 at 61,696 when it was put into storage.

Land Rover gave the Range Rover an extensive overhaul for the 2007 model year car, with the Terrain Response off-road optimsation gadget fitted and a cabin overhaul to improve safety, ergonomics, air flow and stowage. But the most significant change is the launch of a twin-turbo 3.6-litre V8 diesel engine, with twin variable geometry turbochargers respond quickly to eliminate lag, delivering hefty low-end torque (295 lb ft is on tap from just 1250rpm) and more top-end power. Peak power is 272bhp, peak torque 472lb ft. Combined fuel consumption is 25.1mpg, which Land Rover vows is easily attainable in real-world driving conditions. The TDV8 replaces the ancient, BMW-sourced TD6. To compare them, the Land Rover propaganda team dished out more percentages than a maths GCSE course. The V8 has 54 percent more power, 64 percent more torque, it's 32 percent quicker from 0 to 62mph and it's 75 percent quieter.
This Stornaway Grey with Ebony leather interior example is "fully loaded" with such luxuries as a Harmon Kardon Logic 7 sound system, TV, Venture Cam, Auxiliary Heating (you can prewarm the car on a cold day from the comfort of your home!), heated seats and steering wheel.
As was common at the time this Vogue was ordered in Holland and bought into this country for its first owner, Mr Ord of County Durham who bought it from Stuart Garages of Prenton on the 19th October 2007 at a cost of ?53,850. Serviced by Team Valley Land Rover at 12,001 miles and 19,829 miles. Our vendor bought it in October 2009 at 24,649 miles from Stratstone of Doncaster for ?39,981. The service book has been fully filled in up to the last service at 129,429 miles in January 2018, shortly thereafter it has been stored due to his ill health.
Recent work on it includes front and rear brake discs, pads and pipes, starter motor, battery, anti rollbar links and another service.

Throughout its long life from the initial Series 1 of 1948 to the last Defender in 2016 the vehicle was in continuous development and was able to undertake many varied roles, from farmers hacks, to expedition vehicle to civilian life and the military forces and much loved by most. The Defender first entered UK military service in 1985, in both long and short wheelbase forms. Early vehicles were all powered by the '12J' 2.5 non-turbo diesel engine, and available as either General Service (GS) or Fitted For Radio (FFR) versions. Over the following ten years very large numbers of these basic variants were purchased by the MoD.
This example was used at RAF Marham and sold by Witham Ltd on behalf of HQ Air Command in November 2011. It entered service on the 26th October 1995, its service number was 34 AY 09 and had 86,505 miles on the clock when released from duty. In May 2012 DVLA allocated the current registration number and purchased by our vendor, a Land Rover enthusiast. He has upgraded the vehicle in his eight years of ownership, replacing the rear crossmember and footwell, a new cambelt was fitted at 115,600 miles, it has also had a new propshaft, chequerplate in 2018, recent tyres and a battery.

1994 BMW 325i, E36, 2494 cc. Registration number L846 DAT. Chassis number WBABJ52-20EA10516. Engine number 34170727.
If ever a car was granted an easy run at a target, the E36 BMW 3 Series Convertible was it. Whilst the saloon had to contend with the Mercedes C-Class and the Audi A4, the Convertible version had no C-Class convertible nor topless A4 Convertible to interrupt its smooth ride to big profits. Although the E36 or third generation BMW 3 Series first arrived on British shores in the early Spring of 1991, the stylish convertible versions didn't put in an appearance until some three years later.
Three engines were initially offered, the four-cylinder 318i and six-cylinder 320i and 325i derivatives. The 316i and diesel models were never available with the E36 convertible body shape. A couple of months later the 286bhp M3 Convertible was launched, a car that many felt never warranted the M badge, being far softer in focus than its boxily aggressive E30 predecessor.
The 3 Series Convertible was the default choice if you needed German quality, four seats and a soft top. Few compromises were made in the development of the 3-Series convertible. The electric hood still stands comparison with some of the better hoods made today, there's still enough legroom for four full grown adults and the interior design has hardly dated at all.
DAT, finished in Mauritius blue with a special order crimson leather interior, has led a pampered life,

1983 Mercedes Benz 380 SL R107, 3839cc. Registration number TDA 404Y. Chassis number 107 04522024643. Engine number 1169622015004.
In 1980, Mercedes-Benz revamped its SL lineup of sporting luxury convertibles with the introduction of the 380SL. The 380 was a further development of the R107 chassis, which was first used in 1972 by the 350SL, and then later by the 450SL. Like its forebears the 380SL was a heady mix of V-8 power, refined luxury, and sporty underpinnings, and it was as a very popular model during its production run.
The 380SL, so-named for its 3.8-litre V-8, had a smaller engine than the 450SL and was consequently 120 pounds lighter. The new engine was designed with emissions controls in mind while the 450SL's engine was not, which meant that the two engines were relatively equal in terms of power (155 hp in the 380SL vs. 160 hp in the 450SL) despite the difference in their displacements. Performance was similar for the two cars, as was fuel economy.
Outside of the engine, the 380SL also received a new four-speed automatic transmission, which further enhanced distance driving. Suspension, meanwhile, continued to be the same fully independent setup as in the earlier cars, and four-wheel disc braking remained standard.
The standard transmission provided a top speed of 130mph and a very respectable 0-62mph in 8.8 seconds. As with the previous generations of SLs, the vehicle came as an open roadster with a removable hardtop roof. The R107 body shape went on to become one of the longest running styles from Mercedes-Benz, remaining in production until 1989 with some 13 variants during the production run.
The 380SL ended production in 1985, at which point it was replaced by the 560SL.
TDA was first registered on the 12th May 1983 in thistle green metallic with green sports check cloth interior by the Nayland Motor Company of West Glamorgan to Mr Curtis for his wife. It has optional extras such as cruise control and rear seats. Brought up to Yorkshire it then was serviced by H. Nightingales of Beeford as per the recommended intervals until 1995 (13 stamps in the service book), it also had a cherished number plate change to SXC100. In 1995 it was sold to Ron Simpson who had it serviced by S.M. Autocare of Pickering at 86,326, 92,085 and 98,432 miles. In 2003 it was bought by Arthur Paice who took the cherished plate of it and it reverted to the original TDA 404Y. He sold it to a Mr Booth in July 2005 with a mileage of 106,856 at that years MOT.
Since then it has been serviced and MOT'd by Brain Kitt Motors of Driffield and led a pampered life. Over the years it has seen little use and often sorned, especially as ill health restricted him using it; the MOT in May 2019 was at 111,959 miles only the 3 added since the year before (the trip to the MOT station). Sold in 2019 to its current owner and our vendor who has rarely used it.
TDA is a rare example of a full service history car that has spent its life around the Driffield area and can be highly recommended to the next custodian.

1947 Triumph 1800 Roadster, 1776 cc. Registration number WXG 903 (non transferable). Chassis number TRD 1170. Engine number TRD 1170.
The 1800 Roadster was designed in the closing days of World War II. Triumph had been bought by the Standard Motor Company in 1944, and the managing director of Standard, Sir John Black, wanted a sports car to take on Jaguar, who had used Standard engines in the pre-war period. After getting Black's approval for the general shape, Frank Callaby worked with Arthur Ballard to design the details of the body.
Early post-war steel shortages meant that the body was built from aluminium, using rubber press tools that had been used making panels for the largely wooden bodied Mosquito bomber that had been built by Standard during the war. The engine was a version of Standard's 1.5-litre, four-cylinder side-valve design that had been converted to overhead valves by Harry Weslake and built by Standard exclusively for SS-Jaguar before World War II. The Triumph version differed from the Jaguar version in having a 6.7:1 compression ratio instead of the Jaguar's 7.6:1 and a downdraught Solex carburettor instead of the Jaguar's side-draught SU. A four-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the top three ratios was used.
The tubular steel chassis was a short-wheelbase version of the 1800 saloon, featuring transverse leaf sprung independent suspension at the front and a live axle with semi-elliptic springs at the rear. The rear track was wider than the front by some 4 inches. Brakes were hydraulic.
WXG was originally registered on the 27th September 1947 as AEE 808 and owned by Antony Richards of Shepton Mallet; in January 1962 he sold it to Antony Holmes and then Gerald Pavey in the May, by 1966 it was with Maurice and Sheila Tarrant of Bournemouth and in use until at least 1970 when it was MOT'd at 45 miles. By 1978 it was with its long term owner, Dr Evans of Axminster as he was in correspondence with the Dept of Transport then. There is a V5 on file with this registration number from 1995.
Between 1984 and 1995 he had the car fully restored and painted in gunmetal grey and fitted with blue Connolly Hide, blue Mohair hood and blue 100% wool carpets by Axminster Upholstery at a cost of ?2,660, a stainless steel exhaust was also fitted. MOT history from 2006 until 2012 shows the mileage rising from 1,932 to 12,226 when it was taken off the road.
In 2015 he was issued the new registration number WXG by DVLA for an unknown reason and the MOT mileage had dropped to 1,238 miles, today it is at 1,752 miles. Purchased in November 2018 from Charterhouse of Sherbourne Auctioneers at the Bristol Classic Car show, it has had summer use and our vendor has decided sell due to a change of circumstances.
One of only 2501 1800's built between 1946 and 1947, this older restoration runs well and the Axminster interior has stood the test of time very well. Further detailing will make this a wonderful period machine.

They were sold under the SL (R107) and SLC (C107) model names as the 280 SL, 280 SLC, 300 SL, 350SL, 350SLC, 380SL, 420SL, 450SL, 450SLC, 450SLC 5.0, 500SL, 500SLC and 560 SL.
Volume production of the first R107 car, the 350 SL, started in April 1971, the 350 SLC followed in October. From July 1974 both SL and SLC could also be ordered with a fuel-injected 2.8L straight-6 as 280 SL and SLC. In September 1977 the 450 SLC 5.0 joined the line. This was a homologation version of the big coup?, featuring a new all-aluminium five-litre V8, aluminium alloy bonnet and boot-lid, and a black rubber rear spoiler, along with a small front-lip spoiler. The 450SLC 5.0 was produced in order to homologate the SLC for the 1978 World Rally Championship.
Starting in 1980, the 350, 450 and 450 SLC 5.0 models (like the 350 and 450 SL) were discontinued in 1980 with the introduction of the 380 and 500 SLC in March 1980.
YJR was first registered on the 26th June 1979, by March 1994 it was in the ownership of Lord Francis Armstrong of Bamburgh in Northumberland. In October 1999 our vendor bought it and it has stayed in her heated garage ever since being used occasionally. In 2006 the MOT history shows a mileage of 61,299, rising slowly over the years, May 2010 it was at 62,590 and had some repairs to the underside. SORN'd in 2011 it was back on the road in 2015 at 62,649 miles, SORN'd again in 2019 it had some major repairs to the underside at 62,668 miles and passed its MOT.
In overall good condition, although the drivers seat squab needs some attention and the windows of the blue hood need replacing, it is sold with a hardtop and drove very well when the cataloguer attended.

Recent restoration work to the vehicle, undertaken by Ashcroft Engineering included two new sills, inner wheel arches, undersealing and a through cleaning of the brake lines. Sold with the V5C, MOT history, various paperwork; the history folder has been misplaced and hopefully will turn up before the auction.

2000 Mini Cooper, 1275 cc. Registration number W943 PAG. Chassis number SAXXNNAZEYD182786. Engine number 12A2LK70394580.
Having devised the iconic original back in the early 1960s, John Cooper sold his own modified Minis under the 'Mini Cooper' name from the mid-1980s, before Rover's acquisition of the rights to the name made it possible to officially re-launch the model in September 1990. The new Mini Cooper was based on the Mini 30, the most luxuriously equipped Limited Edition Mini to date, but fitted with the 1,275cc engine rather than the 30's 998cc unit. What would turn out to be the final Mini version - the Mark 7 - arrived in 1996. Changes included twin-point fuel injection, higher final drive gearing, driver's airbag, side impact beams, additional sound insulation, improved front seats, front-mounted radiator and a 'Sportpack' option. By the time production ceased in 2000, a total of well over 5 million Minis of all types had been produced, making it the best selling British car of all time.
Dating from the final year of the Mini's production in its original form, this PAG is a rare one owner from new example that has only covered some 59,000 miles in its life. Purchased by Mrs Mulligan on the 25th May of 2000 from Welptons of Hull for ?7,965 in Solar Red; it had been pre registered from the 8th of March. Serviced by them the next year at 5,325 miles and the following at 11,421 miles. From then on it has been looked after by a local garage to her.
In it received a front end rebuild with new wings, front panel and scuttle, see images on file and in July 2019 a new OSF floor pan, front panel and repaint of the wings at a cost of over ?2,000.
Sold with the V5C, MOT until March 2012, MOT history confirming the mileage, original Rover manuals and the history folder. This Mini is a much loved example in good order.

2000 Mini Cooper Sportspack, 1275cc. Registration number W188 PGA. Chassis number SAXXNNAZEYD181683. Engine number 12A2LK70393148

Dating from the final year of the Mini's production in its original form, PGA is a rare one owner from new example that has only covered some 21,000 miles in its life. Purchased on the 1st March 2000 by Mr A Crawford of Bathgate in Scotland, he had it serviced at 2,691 miles and put it into his garage in August 2001 when ill health forced him to give up driving. It stayed there until his son inherited it, his intention was to recommission it but this never happened and it has recently been removed from the garage. 
Found to be in remarkable condition by our vendor, the original extended warranty and paperwork was in the car but the keys and V5C were missing. He has applied for a new V5C which hopefully will be with us by the time of the auction. He has turned the engine over, once, to check that it is free but not attempted to start it up, examination of the underside shows the subframes appear sound as is the body, with minimal localised rust bubbles. The interior is in very good condition.
Sold with the V5C, (subject to DVLA) and the aforementioned paperwork, this Cooper offers a rare chance to own a one owner car that has covered only some 21,000 miles and is totally original.
