1958 Jaguar XK150 3.4 SE Roadster

Registration Number: 658UYT

Chassis number S830960 was manufactured on 14th July 1958. A left-hand-drive 3.4 SE OTS finished in Cream with black interior and red piping on the seats, fitted with engine number V4743-8, which it retains to this day.

Dispatched from the Browns Lane factory on 28th July and bound like so many before it, for Jaguar Cars New York. 

The XK 150’s first owner was Charles Counts, and from at least 1965 onwards it’s thought to have lived in Pennsylvania until being imported back across the Atlantic in 2013. Upon arrival in the UK, it was treated to an extensive chassis-up, body-off restoration from 2014-2016. 

Southern Axle Services rebuilt the rear axle, the interior came courtesy of Aldridge Trimming, and a new wiring loom was installed. All chrome work was also refinished, a stainless-steel exhaust added, and new MWS International 60-spoke chrome wire wheels were fitted.

Further work was then carried out in 2020-2021, including a full engine rebuild, a new hood, the extensive application of cavity wax, and the fitment of a battery isolation switch in the glovebox. This XK 150 is resplendent in its red livery, while the interior retains the original colour scheme of black with red piping. It comes with an extensive history file that details its restoration and recent work, and also includes a Heritage Certificate.

The XK 150 is perhaps the most usable of all the legendary XK range, offering style and performance in a surprisingly practical package. This matching-numbers 3.4 OTS provides plenty of open-top entertainment to the accompaniment of that refined six-cylinder exhaust note, and is ready to be enjoyed by its next custodian.

1994 Bentley Continental R



1994 Bentley Continental R

The most expensive production car in the world at the time of its launch, the Continental R remained in production through 2002, with a total of 1,236 examples built. As a marvellous combination of performance and luxury, the model helped catapult Bentley back into the sporting consciousness, while marking the company’s welcome and lasting return to market relevance.

Benefitting from single ownership plus one from new, this beautifully maintained Continental R was delivered in January 1994 to the respected London dealer H.R. Owen, as documented by its service booklet. The Bentley was purchased new by the consignor’s family, and though it was later reregistered under a different company name, the car remained in the family’s care for its entire 27-year life.

Finished in the striking and wonderfully sinister colour combination of Mason’s Black over Black Hide and carpets, with subtle red pinstripe to the exterior and the seats piped in red.

Regularly serviced by top-shelf dealers such as H.R. Owen and Jack Barclay Ltd., the Bentley in more recent years has been tended by the respected craftsmen at The Chelsea Workshop, including a June 2021 bout of maintenance that included a Schedule 2 service. Boasting overwhelming originality, the Continental R displays 39,128 miles, demonstrating a history of careful maintenance and sparing use. It would make a superb addition to any collection, particularly ideal for Bentley aficionados or collectors of flagship luxury coupes.

1968 Lotus Elan S3 SE DHC


1968 Lotus Elan S3 SE Drop Head Coupe

1970 Lotus Elan S4 SE Fixed Head Coupe 
‘GT’ Specification 

The Lotus Elan requires no introduction, a hugely coveted motorcar and one that appears to be a must have for many collectors.

And for good reason, everything about these little cars is ‘just right’, everything. From the lithe and nimble character of all controls, to its beautifully simple yet totally effective design. 

With originality being the focus here for this offering, this 1968 Series 3 special equipment drop head coupe retains so many of its ‘as built’ features. 

Lotus introduced the Special Equipment cars with the following, ‘Based on experience gained from the racing Elan and the Rally prototype this car retains the tractability and comfort of the touring models but provides even greater performance and roadholding’. 

The SE was offered in both drop head coupe and fixed head coupe guise, and to many is a real sweet spot in the range. 

ATW 41F is a very fine example indeed and one which has been lavished with care and attention from the right people who quite obviously all had the same focus, originality. 

The  ‘Classic Certificate of Vehicle Provenance’ and covering letter from the factory held on file confirm this to be a ‘matching numbers’ Series 3 Elan Drop Head Coupe supplied with the Special Equipment package to the London Sports Car Centre under Invoice Number EK 54510 on 20th March 1968.

Highlights of the restoration and maintenance record:

1983 – Further engine work

1989 – Full body restoration and repaint back to ‘Lotus Blue’

1996 – New bonnet and dashboard

2004 – Rebuilt radiator and new stainless steel exhaust manifolds

2012 – New rear springs and discs

2012 – Extensive recommissioning work totalling over £3,200

2016 – Further recommissioning and evaluation work carried out at a cost of over £1,000

Hand written maintenance logs covering the period 1978 to 1989

And it is in more recent years where many all important big jobs have been carried out (and thankfully for the next owner, pots of money has been spent). For example a total mechanical overhaul including engine rebuild, bodywork stripped and re-sprayed, while they were there the door shuts which could never be called perfect on these cars were sorted which is a rather painstaking process. The list goes on and this car ought to be seen to be appreciated. 

Everything that has been done to this car ensures originality is retained where possible whilst being bang up to date and in superb order mechanically, cosmetically and structurally. 

A wonderful, extremely well sorted and highly original factory SE which is very much ready to enjoy.
