Volvo P1800ES - Manual/Overdrive/2 Owners

 

Already busy making the elegant yet utterly practical, safe and beautifully engineered Amazon, Volvo wanted to spice up their image and employed Pelle Petterson to design a new car based on the Amazon platform while working at the Italian design house Frua.  His long, low and streamlined masterpiece was an immediate success and is today the epitome of a classic car that will deliver speed, grace & practicality

 

In 1972 the final model, the P1800ES was marketed.  The car retained the bullet-proof Amazon mechanicals but now had an all-glass tailgate and folding rear seats.  Only 8,077 were sold worldwide and today they represent one of the most desirable classics on the road.

 

First registered in June 1972 our stunning ES was sold by Hanson’s Ltd of Harrogate to the first owner, Mr F Newbold who cherished the car for the next 46 years.  Today the car is a real credit to him with super straight body, excellent paintwork and lovely chrome.  Entering the car is like stepping back in time – Volvo spent considerable time on designing a very safe and welcoming environment.  The fully adjustable seats are super comfortable, the dashboard well designed –it could be in a light aircraft – and carpets, head-lining, door cards etc. are all very good.

 

The car starts instantly and on the road these rare cars are a real pleasure to drive with the bullet proof B20 fuel injected engine and four speed overdrive gearbox delivering performance easily capable of coping with modern driving conditions.

 

The history folder confirms just two owners from new and includes invoices, old MOT’s original Drivers Handbook, Service Book and even the original Hanson’s tax disc holder.

 

The ES is arguably the thinking man’s choice for a classic Grand Tourer – they will do anything, go anywhere in comfort and at speed……

 

We urge early viewing in order to fully appreciate this remarkable car.

Hillman Super Minx – Exceptional Car/Very Original

 

The Hillman Super Minx is a family car which was produced by Hillman from 1961 to 1967. It was a slightly larger version of the Hillman Minx and the model was popular with the aspiring young professional family man looking for slightly more space and increased performance from his car.

 

Milestones are always looking for above average classic saloons and this late Series III Super Minx is a lovely car that ticked all the boxes for us.  Finished in stunning Forest Green with contrasting green upholstery and matching carpets the Minx looks extremely sharp with a lovely a paint finish, excellent chrome and an exceptional interior – good Rootes Group cars from this period always present well.

 

On the road the car does not disappoint and drives extremely well with absolutely no issues – engine, gearbox, brakes etc. are all very good and cope with modern road conditions very well – and the car is a real pleasure to drive.

 

The history folder includes MOT’s back to 1997, a variety of invoices and the original hand-written Bill of Sale from Windsor Service Station (Bath) that confirms the Minx cost Mr Vowles, the proud new owner, the princely sum of £731.

 

Ready to use and enjoy this Super Minx will provide lots of pleasure and happy memories to the lucky new owner and we recommend early viewing in order to fully appreciate this exceptional classic.

Triumph Toledo – 1 Family/Superb History

 

The Triumph Toledo replaced the FWD 1300 in Triumph’s model range in 1970.  The 1300 had been an expensive car to produce and Triumph reverted back to the tried and tested longitudinal arrangement of engine – gearbox – live rear axle.  Despite not being a technological revolution the car enjoyed a higher specification than most of its competitors and when eventually replaced by the Dolomite nearly 120,000 units had been manufactured.

 

On the 11rh March 1975 Mr J G Davis collected his brand new Toledo from his local garage – Burridge’s Motors, Chippenham – and the original invoice in the history file indicates that he paid the princely sum of £1561 for the car. He was an engineer who wanted to keep his new Triumph in tip-top condition and extras included under-seal & front/rear mud flaps. 

 

The Passport to Service shows that Mr Davis religiously serviced the car every 3,000 miles - extra pages to record all the work have been added - and he clearly cherished the car.  In 2007 the car was put into storage and re-immerged in 2016 when it was recommissioned by Mr Davis’s daughter and has since been used sparingly for classic car shows and family outings/

 

Today the Toledo is one of the most original examples that you could wish to own.  The car drives absolutely perfectly, the interior looks around two years old and the body has just the odd blemish touched in by the owner over the years with absolutely no corrosion issues. 

 

We have driven the car over 100 miles (we complete extended test drives for all of our cars prior to sale) and the car is an absolute delight – Jamie would like to keep it as his everyday run-around!

 

Cars with this provenance/in this condition rarely come to market.  The Toledo would make an ideal starter classic and we recommend early viewing in order to fully appreciate this remarkable little Triumph.

Ford Mustang 1964 – £80k Rebuild/Show Car

 

The first-generation Ford Mustang was manufactured by Ford from March 1964 until 1973. The introduction of the Mustang created a new class of automobile known as the pony car. The cars styling, with its long hood, short deck and brash colours proved wildly popular and inspired a host of imitators.

 

Milestone Classics are delighted to offer to market the nicest Mustang we have ever had the privilege to sell. 

 

The car was originally purchased blind from the USA under the impression that the new owner was purchasing a super straight car needing minimal work to bring to show standard.  What arrived in the UK eight weeks later was a rusty restoration project and the rest, as they say is history.

 

The owner placed the car with one of the most respected restoration companies in Sussex – J. C. Auto Finishers (John Castleman) and work commenced.  Half through the restoration funds run out and the car was parked under a sheet at J.C’s.  John’s wife fell in love with the car and a decision was made to keep the Mustang and complete the restoration for personal use and to show case John’s work at local shows

 

The team decided to return the Mustang to “as she left the factory” specification.  The VIN number was decoded and work was completed as and when time permitted.  The only concession, in the interest of safety, was to fit Disc Brakes front and rear with new wheels

 

The restoration was completed as a personal project and as such no invoices were raised although there are over 350 pictures detailing every stage of the project.  Every component was stripped from the car and restored or replaced.  The paint finish is, as you would expect, excellent with contrasting white vinyl roof and Pony Interior  

 

It is estimated that the cost to replicate this Mustang would exceed £80.000. 

 

The final result is absolutely breath-taking - the car has to be seen, heard & driven in order to be fully appreciated.

MGB Roadster – One Owner/Utterly Original

The original MGB Roadster is one of the most recognisable British sports cars ever manufactured.  It brought affordable fun to the open road when launched in 1962 and over the next 18 years over 500,000 cars were sold. 

 

Our 1974 MGB is a local car purchased from Hill Barn Garage, Lancing by Mr Peter Etheridge on 26th September 1974.  The MG was for Mrs Etheridge to use and she stipulated that her car had to have chrome bumpers although, by September, the rubber bumper cars had been introduced and stocks of chrome B’s were virtually non-existent.  After many phone calls Hill Barn Garage confirmed that they had just one chrome bumper roadster left in stock (it was the last car in Sussex/Surrey) and the deal was done.

 

The MG was fitted with the optional sports pack that included overdrive, oil cooler and headrests.  Mr Etheridge also had the car undersealed by the garage as he intended to keep the car for an extended period and wanted to protect his investment.

 

Over the next 44 years the ‘B’ was simply part of the Etheridge family used for shopping, the school run, golf etc.  Mrs Etheridge passed away around fifteen years ago but Mr Etheridge, for sentimental reasons, simply could not let the MG go.  Recently the car has been used sparingly, covering just 200 miles in the last four years and the family have now decided that their beloved ‘B’ needs to find a caring new custodian who will use and enjoy their pride and joy.

 

Today the car is simply one of the most original examples that you could wish to find.  The body work presents extremely well with sills/wings replaced in 1987 by Thornley Engineering Co. and mechanically the car has most recently been cared for by Robin Lackford Engineering. 

 

The interior is like stepping back in time with original autumn leaf seats, rubber sill mats still in place and factory steering wheel.  On the road the MG drives like a two year old car with lovely smooth engine/gearbox and no unwanted rattles – a testament to the regular maintenance and careful use the car has always received

 

The history folder contains original bill of sale, BL Passport to Service, old MOTs, invoices & guarantee’s (inc Rust Guard) and even the original Hill Barn sales brochure from 1974 when the Etheridge’s collected the car

 

Classics with provenance and in this condition rarely come to market.  We recommend early viewing in order to fully appreciate this remarkable MGB.

MG RV8 – Rare Nightfire Red & Power Stering

The early 1990’s success of the Mazda MX-5 and various TVRs prompted Rover to re-enter the sports roadster market with the RV8 in 1992.  The 3.9 litre V8 delivered 185BHP to the rear wheels through a five speed gearbox giving impressive performance – 0 to 60mph in under six seconds and a top speed of around 135mph. Production was limited to approximately fifteen cars a week (the price tag was in excess of £26k) and under 2,000 were manufacture making the RV8 and extremely rare sight on British roads.

Finished in the rare option of Rover Nightfire Red our car was imported from Japan in 2006 and has covered just over 14,000 miles in the last thirteen years in additional to the 66,000 kilometres (41,000 miles) covered in Japan from new. 

The RV8 has always been meticulously maintained by the three previous UK owners with regular services/parts as required and was fitted with an MGOC power steering upgrade (a brilliant option to have) in 2010 at a cost in excess of £2,300.

The areas that cause concern on RV8’s – the three ‘W’s (Windscreen, Wheels & Wood) - are all outstanding with immaculate wood/door veneers, excellent leather and all wheels are factory fresh with new tyres fitted last year. 

Historically the RV8 has been undervalued by the market but prices have risen sharply over the past two years.  This RV8 is one of the best we have seen and drives superbly

MGB GT V8 – Powertrain 4600cc/5 Speed G/box

Milestone Classics are delighted to offer to market this remarkable MGB GT V8 that we have sold on two previous occasions and are delighted to have the opportunity to market again.

The original chrome bumper GT was previously owned by a local, highly respected, naval engineer who truly cherished his car for nearly twenty years.  In 2003, after six years of use as a daily driver the shell was badly corroded and a full body restoration using a replacement shell was commissioned.  

The objective of the project was set by the owner – he wanted to create the best and fastest V8 GT and the MG was dispatched to highly respected specialist Horam Classic Restorations, East Sussex.  Horam sourced a replacement shell at a cost in excess of £6,500 and all mechanical components were systematically refurbished or replaced

Mechanical upgrades:

·         A new, and very desirable, Powertrain Engineering 4600cc engine was purchased through the MG Owners Club.  Originally destined for Morgan the last eight remaining engines were snapped up by the MGOC and offered to club members to build their ultimate V8. 

·         Offenhauser manifold with Edelbrock carb,

·         R380 5 speed gearbox

·         MG RV8 coil over front suspension and parabolic rear springs to match performance

·         Minilite wheels (not replicas)

·         New luxury leather interior.

The finished car was sent to Gerald Dale Motorsport to go on the rolling road and the results surpassed all expectations

The engine produced 219BHP and 287.3lb ft @ 5,303 RPM

The factory V8’s are rated at 137BHP and the Frontline Development MGLE 50 that costs in excess of £65,000 is rated at 213BHP.

It is an amazing car to drive, utterly reliable and one of the fastest MGB’s on the road - this specification would be virtually impossible to replicate today.

 MG TF 135 – Rare Pearlescent Blue & 38,000 miles 

The MGF was designed as a modern, affordable open sports car built on MG traditions and was launched in 1995 with the much improved TF being marketed from 2002. Although up against the MX5 sales were very strong and today outstanding examples represents a superb entry level classic.

Milestone Classics are delighted to offer this absolutely beautiful TF135 in the extremely rare combination of Pearlescent Royal Blue, Black hood with Sebring Light Tan interior – it is a stunning combination

The MG has covered a warranted 38,000 miles since manufacture in 2004 and in the last two years the car has been fitted with a new timing belt.  The fastidious previous owner, a long standing customer at Milestones, has made the difficult decision to sell the car for health reasons – his loss will be the lucky new owners gain.

The bodywork presents extremely well with absolutely no issues and the TF has recently benefitted from all four wheels being refurbished – there was a tiny scuff on one but the owner wanted to ensure the paint on all four matched. 

The interior is very rare – we have never seen this combination before – really does suit the car and with aftermarket wind deflector the car is a pleasure to drive with the hood down

Without question the TF 135 is a true MG with engaging (mid-engine) performance and excellent road manners - it is one of best kept secrets of the classic car world.

MGB GT V8 – Time Warp Condition

MG introduced the MGB GT V8 in 1973.  The cars were well received at the time but poor build quality and the fuel crisis meant just 2,591 were constructed when production ceased in 1976. 

Our remarkably original chrome bumper example, finished in rare Tundra paint with autumn leaf interior (only 92 built) was owned for over 20 years by a retired commercial pilot who maintained the car regardless of cost.  Work included inner & outer sills, lower wings, bonnet, radiator, clutch, alternator, brakes, suspension etc. with invoices in the history folder in excess of £20k.

In 2017 we sold the car to a garage owner/private collector in Hamburg, Germany who used the car sparingly.  All mechanical work/servicing has been carried out to an extremely high standard by his garage and the car used sparingly for continental touring.

The original specification interior is excellent with recent seat covers, foams, carpets while still retaining the original rubber sill covers – we haven’t seen these in place for years. Under the carpet is body colour and the B retains her original steering wheel

On the road the car is outstanding with strong mechanicals, excellent road manners and a superb V8 soundtrack   

At Milestones we like BGT V8’s and this is an exceptional opportunity to purchase an iconic MGB.  Undervalued for many years, prices are rising fast and this car will provide years of pleasure to the fortunate new owner.

Porsche 986 Boxster – FSH/80,000 miles

In October 1991, following a visit to the Tokyo Motor Show, Porsche began to devise solutions to succeed the poor selling 928.  By June 1992 a decision was made to develop the most recent project into a concept vehicle for the 1993 American International Auto Show. After receiving widespread acclaim from the press and public alike pilot production began 1995.  The car was an instant success and is credited with saving Porsche which had been suffering with an ageing product range and falling sales

 

Milestones have been looking to market a “Boxster” for some time but have not be able to find one to meet our exacting standards – we are delighted to report the search is now over.     Finished in Artic Silver with contrasting Blue soft top (including heated rear screen) and matching Metropole Blue interior the car is stunning.  

 

Supplied new by Porsche Centre West London in August 2004 the first owner went for a high specification that included:

 

·         18 inch Sport Design Alloys

·         Sound Package

·         Wind Deflector

·         Top Tinted Windscreen

·         Electronic Air Conditioning/Climate Control

·         Rear Parking Aids

·         On Board Computer

·         CD Autochanger

·         Porsche CDR-23 Radio

·         Aluminium Instrument Dial Surrounds//Gear Lever/Handbrake

 

With under 80,000 miles covered in 15 years the car has wanted for nothing and always been cossetted.  The Boxster has had just four owners (two in the same family) and benefits from an excellent service history (last service July 2019).

 

On the road the car drives as good as she looks, the handling and exhaust note are simply addictive!

 

Boxster values are increasing for high specification, well maintained, low ownership, low mileage examples.  This car ticks all of those boxes and we recommend an early viewing in order to fully appreciate this lovely example.

Morris 1000 Factory Convertible – £19k Restoration

The Morris 1000 debuted at the 1948 Earls Court motor show.  It quickly became an iconic vehicle that was exported all over the world with over 1.3million being manufactured before production ceased in 1972.

 

Originally manufactured on 11th July 1958 at the Morris Works (Cowley) this car was originally designated as a right hand drive export model.  There is no factory record where the car was exported too but the Morris was subsequently registered in London under the Home Delivery Export Scheme in June 1978 when the owner returned to the UK.

 

The Morris was liberated from long-term storage in 2014 and the new owner despatched his new car (Bumble) to the highly respected Tim Land Classics Ltd for a full restoration that cost in excess of £19,000 – the quality of the work speaks for itself.

Triumph Herald – Rare Early Car/Magazine Featured

The Triumph Herald was launched in 1959 and, like the Spitfire, was designed by Giovanni Michelotti.  The car was an instant success with stunning styling, willing 948cc engine, excellent manoeuvrability and, for the day, high levels of comfort in a small family car.

 

Milestones are delighted to offer this magazine featured very early Triumph Herald saloon.  The Heritage Certificate indicates that the car was originally destined for Thailand and registered by the factory in Coventry on 9th May 1960 under the UK Home Delivery Export Scheme to a Mr D.R.A.Spankie.  The car is finished in the original colour scheme of Lichfield Green/Sebring White with Grey (vynide) interior – a very period combination

The bodywork, paint and chrome all present well (pictures of restoration) and the interior is very original right down to the extremely rare early fibre dashboard, period radio and delicate switchgear that pre-dates the later wooden offering.   Mechanically the car has been loved – there is a written summary of all work undertaken between 1996/2018 that includes an engine rebuild in 1996 and a de-coke/head skimmed in 2014 and at least one service every year!

On the road the car is an absolute delight to drive.  The large history file indicates just six previous owners and contains the original logbook with Standard Triumph stamp, old MOT’s, invoices, handbooks, Heritage Certificate etc.

The early Heralds are so easy to live with and have a super strong following.  Straight forward engineering, separate chassis, fully opening bonnet, light steering, sharp Michelotti design with large doors, charming interior – the car shouts 1960’s!!!

The Herald is Ideal for classic car shows, weekends away or simply a run out to the local pub – she positively drips charm and will provide lots of pleasure to the lucky new custodian.

Bedford CF2 Drop Side Truck – Rare Opportunity

Introduced during November 1969 to replace the 17-year-old Bedford CA, the CF van variants became some of the most popular light commercial vehicles on British roads.  In 1984 the CF was renamed CF2 and received a variety of mechanical upgrades. The last CF2’s were sold in 1987 marking the end of Bedford designed vehicles (new models were based on GM platforms).

 

Welcome to the sale of a remarkably original, last of the line, Bedford CF2 drop side truck.  This stunning little light commercial truck was delivered new by Charles Clark, Vauxhall Bedford Agents to H. J. Oaxley & Co Ltd, (Sheffield) on 17th September 1986 to transport their various light engineering products.  Clearly used sparingly the truck passed onto a Rotherham Flower Trader around 2007 and more recently, in 2015, to a private collector who used her for film work across the UK and Europe.

 

In 2016 restoration work was carried out on the cab shell, both doors & chassis.  The lovely timber-bed and excellent original interior were refitted along with the original (supplying dealer) registration plates and window sticker

 

On the road the truck is a real eye-catcher and drives extremely well.  The history file shows just three previous owners, includes recent MOT’s and invoices for restoration work and original service book.

 

This very late Bedford is one of the best CF2’s you could hope to find.  Perfect for business advertising or simply as a classic with a special twist we expect this remarkable truck to find an appreciative new custodian very quickly

BMW E30 320SE (Auto) – 2 Door/Special Equipment

 

The BMW E30 is the second generation of the BMW 3 Series which was produced between 1982/1994 and replaced the E21.  The two door 320/325 models with straight six petrol engine, improved suspension and iconic 1980’s styling were an instant success with press and public alike – sales were strong and the car remained in production for 12 years

Milestone Classics are delighted to offer this stunning E30 in Glacier Blue – my personal favourite.  The car benefits from the factory ‘Special Equipment’ specification (rear spoiler, bumpers, wheel arches etc) and was previously owned by a retired enthusiast.

Originally supplied by BMW Holland Park the large history folder includes owners handbook, service book (18 stamps & warranted 140,000), old MOT’s back to 2002 and a large number of invoices from the previous owner. The body work presents very well with just the odd blemish commensurate with use and the SE specification looks really sharp.  The cloth interior belies the age of the car with excellent seats, carpets and roof lining – it is like stepping back in time!

As you would expect, the E30 is a delight to drive with brisk acceleration, super smooth gear changes and addictive six pot sound track.

The BMW would make a superb high days and holiday classic or an alternative everyday driver for the discerning enthusiast – simply use and enjoy with maximum enjoyment and zero depreciation

We recommend an early test drive in order to fully appreciate this stunning sports saloon

Honda Accord Type R – Stunning Condition

The Honda Accord Type-R (ATR) was produced from 1998 to 2002 using the CH1 Accord chassis and naturally aspirated 2.2-litre four-cylinder DOHC "Red Top" VTEC motor that produced over 200bhp.  The car also boasted, stiffer suspension & chassis, Helical limited-slip-differential, twin-piston brakes, dual exhaust system, 17-inch alloys, Xenon headlights, Recaro seats and Momo steering wheel.

 

At Milestones we are always on the look-out for classic “sleepers” and when a regular customer offered us an absolutely stunning Type-R from his private collection we simply could not resist! 

 

Finished in Versuvio Red with charcoal sports interior and just three owners this Type-R has covered a warranted 64k miles from new.  The history folder contains old style V5 documents, MOT history, Service Book with twelve main dealer/specialist service stamps and a variety of invoices.  The car was originally purchased from Brighton Honda before passing through Church’s Performance Cars to the current keeper for his collection.

 

Recent service (2019 – in excess of £800) included:

 

·         Replacement Cam-belt

·         Waxoly application to rear sub-frame & inner sills

·         Replacement Catalytic Converter

·         Oil/Air/Fuel Filters, Spark Plugs etc

 

On the road the car does not disappoint with the VTEC engine coming alive above 5,000rpm – top speed a shade over 140mph/0-60mph in around 7seconds - and road holding that feels like the car is simply on rails.    

 

The Accord Type-R makes a superb everyday driver or a car to be put away as an investment opportunity.   Ready to use and enjoy we recommend early viewing in order to fully appreciate this lovely example of a future classic.

Morris 1000 Factory Convertible – Very Original

The Morris 1000 debuted at the 1948 Earls Court motor show.  It quickly became an iconic vehicle that was exported all over the world with over 1.3million being manufactured before production ceased in 1972.

Milestones are delighted to offer an original factory (Chassis M/AT3) convertible that we sold to a regular customer two years ago.   The previous owner’s wife had driven the car for over forty tears for trips to town and the local golf club where she was a member.  The car is very original and finished in the rare Pale Ivory colour option with red interior and hood. 

Always maintained professionally (the owner had his own garage/body shop) the Minor has covered minimal mileage over the last 20 years, starts on the button, drives superbly with characteristic ‘Purp’ and draws lots of attention/positive comments when you park. 

 

The bodywork is lovely with just the odd paint chip commensurate with an older restoration completed over 25 years ago.   The red leather interior with original ‘Banjo’ steering wheel / centre sweep windscreen wipers / two opening glove boxes makes for a stunning combination and the hood is very good with no damage and a clear rear window.

This lovely unmolested convertible is one of the nicest you could wish to find and will give years of pleasure to the lucky new owners

MGB Roadster – Photographic Restoration

The MGB was launched by MG Cars in May 1962 to replace the MGA and remained in manufacture until 22 October 1980.  In the second half of 1974 the car was redesigned in order to meet USA crash/headlight regulations and the ‘rubber bumper’ cars went into production.  Initially the car was poorly received but today they provide an ideal entry point into classic car ownership.

 

Welcome to the sale of our 1979 MGB Roadster. The history file contains invoices and around 50 pictures of a full restoration undertaken in the early 1990’s.  The car benefitted from new front wings, lower rear wings, doors, sills, boot lid etc. and was finished in the original colour of Snapdragon Yellow.

Since 1987 the history file demonstrates regular expenditure for servicing and components as required.  In 2009 the car was converted to (chrome) wire wheels & spinners and in 2012 the car lost her original rubber bumpers, replaced with chrome items with the suspension height correctly adjusted.  To complete the look an earlier slatted chrome radiator grill was added, the interior upgraded with black leather and a wood rimmed steering wheel fitted.  

     

The car has covered just over 10,000 miles in the last twenty years.  Mechanically the she starts instantly, drives very well with no issues and authentic ‘B’ exhaust note – the epitome of classic motoring. 

Competitively priced and ready to drive anywhere this classic roadster will provide the new keeper with lots of pleasure for many years to come.

AH Sprite Mk IV – Excellent West Coast Sprite Mk IV

 

Launched at the 1966 London Motor Show the MkIV Sprite received the larger 1275cc engine, an alternator, reclining seats, improved permanently affixed folding hood and a number of cosmetic changes (including reversing lights) that brought closer alignment with the Mk III Midget 

 

Manufactured in 1966 our Sprite was originally exported to America where she spent the first thirty years of her life.  In 1997 the car was re-imported into the UK as a rust free West Coast car and converted to right hand drive.  Today the Healey is one of the straightest cars you could wish to find with corrosion free body shell, lovely black/red piped interior and excellent mechanicals. 

 

The large history file from 1997 onwards indicates just 9,000 miles covered with regular maintenance/expenditure including £4,000 in 2011 for an interior refurbishment and various mechanical work.  In 2016 the car was inspected by Haig & Co (Consulting Engineers) and their report describes the car as being in “A1 condition”

 

On the road the car is one of the best driving AH Sprites that we have had through Milestones.  The car starts instantly with excellent oil-pressure, accelerates briskly through the gears making all the right noises and simply handles like it is on rails – the essence of a classic sports car.  

 

Ready to be used and enjoyed we expected this lovely car to find a new home very quickly

Ford Granada Coupe Mk1 – Concours Winner

Launched in March 1972, the Granada succeeded the British Ford Zephyr, and the German P7-series as Ford's European executive car offering, and completed the integration of Ford's British and German model ranges. The car was available as a four-door saloon, a five-door estate and the highly desirable two door fastback coupé – only available in 3.0 Ghia trim in the UK. 

 

Milestone Classics are delighted to offer arguably the best 3.0 Ghia Coupe in the UK.  The car was purchased by the previous owner, Roy Barber, in 1990.  Roy commenced a painstaking refurbishment to concours standard and the car has simply been winning prizes ever since.

 

The Granada is better than when she left the factory.  The Stratos Silver paintwork is unblemished, the black vinyl roof with factory sunroof perfect and original polished alloys complete the look – just breath taking….

 

The interior does not disappoint.  The black velour/wood trim is like new with excellent carpets, roof-lining and dash-top.  Sitting behind the wheel is like stepping back to a 1977 episode of The Sweeney

 

Lift the bonnet or look under the car and Roy’s hard work and eye for detail are evident again.  Everything is painted, powder-coated or chromed and looks one year old.

 

Mechanically all bushes, brakes and tyres were recently overhauled/replaced and the car starts and drives as good as she looks….utterly remarkable.

 

The Granada comes with lots of cups/medals won by Roy – she has dominated the club events and competitions he entered for many years – and is ready to be shown, used and enjoyed by the lucky new owner.

 

PRICE: £27995

MGB GT – Overdrive/69,000 warranted miles

The fixed-roof MGB GT was introduced in October 1965 and featured the ground-breaking “greenhouse” design styled by Pininfarina that arguably launching the whole generation of sporting hatchbacks that followed.  Today the GT offers a brilliant combination of sports car looks and practicality for the classic car enthusiast although good examples are (sadly) very hard to find.

The large history file indicates that our BGT was originally registered in Rhodesia on 10th October 1977 by Michael Robertson-Hyde.  The car came back to the UK in 1978 when Michael returned home and he retained the car until 1994.  He was an extremely fastidious owner who serviced the car regularly and the GT went through an expensive restoration in 1989/90 at a cost in excess of £2,000

The history file confirms that the B has had just five owners and covered a warranted 69,000 miles from new. In 2014 the fourth owner converted the car to chrome bumpers, lowered the car to the correct ride height and fitted a slatted chrome radiator grill – the final result is stunning.

Internally the car is excellent with replacement carpets, seat covers and original headlining & dashboard.  The history file contains original Rhodesian registration documents, every MOT and lots of invoices demonstrating caring ownership since day one.

MGB GT’s have risen significantly in value over the last three years – they really are one of the most versatile classic cars on the market.  On the road this car is an absolute pleasure to drive and will provide lots of pleasure/memories to the lucky new owners for years to come.
