Rover Mini – Only 11,000 Miles/Magzine Featured
Milestone Classics are delighted to offer arguably the best Rover Mini on the market today. The car has covered just 11,000 miles from new and been enthusiastically maintained over recent years.
In 2011 the car was purchased by a gentleman as an anniversary gift for his wife when it had covered just 6,000 miles. He resprayed the Mini in the current solar red/silver grey colour scheme adding extended Wood & Pickett wheel arches, tinted windows and the luxury wood & leather interior (leather Recaro seats, gear lever & handbrake gaiters & door cards etc.) - the finish is show standard
The next owner, a perfectionist and retired engineer, detailed the car further including bullet mirrors, Cooper grill, chrome bumper & over-riders, high/low dampers, minifin brake drums, chrome waistline strips, twin fuel caps, the list goes on and on.
The bespoke interior is simply superb with additional lights, wood steering wheel, walnut centre console and flip out sat navigation. The engine bay and boot have also been detailed to show standard with new paint, carpets and a variety of stainless fittings
Milestones are delighted to have been allowed the opportunity to market this very special Mini again. This remarkable example has featured in Mini Magazine and, when driven, feels just like a new car – a restored Mini never feels as good as one that is still factory fresh.
All mini owners know these original cars really do "bend the rules and straighten the corners" in a way no other car ever has. If you have not owned or experienced a Mini this stunning example demands closer inspection.
Wolseley 1500 – Very Original/Prize Winning Car
In spring 1957 Wolseley launched its new ‘luxury compact’ which was to become the biggest selling model ever to bear the Wolseley name. Using the Morris 1000 floor pan and 1500cc B Series engine the car quickly became a success with the public who liked the neat styling, luxury wood/leather interior and outstanding handling that the new car offered.
Milestone Classics are always looking for nice 1960’s saloons for our discerning customers and were delighted when we were asked to find a new home for this Wolseley that we had sold to the owner two years ago.
With just five owners from new this Mk III 1500 is one of the most original cars that you could wish to own. The Dove Grey paintwork and chrome is very good and complemented by lovely original red leather interior seats, walnut dash/ door caps, recent replacement carpets and the bonnet & boot areas are very tidy.
During lock-down the enthusiastic owner replaced:
· Timing chain
· Water pump
· Disc brake upgrade & brake master cylinder
· Steering rack gaiter & Suspension bushes
· New carpets
The 1500 comes with a lovely history file including buff logbook & old V5’s, original handbook, a handwritten log of all maintenance work completed by the first owner between 1967 and 1992, old MOT’s, various invoices and an introductory letter from the last owner summarising their ownership.
Wolseley’s make an excellent starter classic with capable performance from the 1500cc engine and high specification wood/leather interior. The cars easily cope with modern road conditions, and we recommend an early test drive to fully appreciate the charm of this delightful classic.
Jaguar XJ6 4.2 (S2) – 3 owners/35k Miles
Launched to much acclaim in 1968, the XJ6 was the last model that Sir William Lyons had a hands-on input to the design. Lower, longer, and wider than the preceding ‘420’ model the XJ6 featured rack and pinion steering while the favoured 4.2 six-cylinder engine delivered a top speed in excess of 120mph and a level of comfort other manufacturers could only aspire to.
First registered on 24th March 1976 our XJ6 was originally purchased for the owners wedding hire business and the rare electric sunroof option was selected at a cost in excess of £800. In 1994 the car was placed in storage when the owner retired and there it remained for the next 17 years.
In 2011 the car was purchased by a Jaguar enthusiast who spent the next 3 years recommissioning the car. Work included a high quality respray in the original Lavender Blue, brightwork re-chromed where necessary, replacement carpets & headlining and mechanical components replaced as necessary.
In 2014 the car passed to the third owner, another Jaguar enthusiast who has spent more than £20k on his prized XJ6 with work including a full engine rebuild by Mark Taylor (Rolls Royce & Bentley) Ltd and refurbished interior by Leather Restorations Ltd.
On the road the car drives as good as it looks with silk smooth acceleration while the interior looks right & smells right – it is like stepping back in time – and is perfect for long road trips or just a simple drive down to the local pub with friends.
Cars of this quality rarely come to market. We recommend early viewing to fully appreciate this stunning classic.
A40 Somerset: Utterly Original/24k Miles
The A40 Somerset must be one of the most stylish Austin designs of the post war period with flowing lines, bulbous curves, column gear change and front bench seat reflecting the popular “transatlantic” styling of the time. Firmly aimed at the export market the car proved popular at home and abroad and today good examples are highly prized and extremely difficult to find.
Our Austin A40 was delivered to its first owner, Mr Harold Denning of Worcester on 16th February 1953 and used sparingly until his death in 1968. At this time the Somerset was purchased by a local BMC dealership (Bromyard Road Motors (Worcester) Ltd run by three brothers at this time and displayed in their showroom for the next 38 years.
The Austin first appeared on the Milestones radar in 2018 with just 23,159 miles and still running on two of her original tyres and incredibly rare original red rubber front mats. At this time the Somerset went through an MOT requiring just new tyres, a stop brake bulb, wiper blades and brake adjustment.
The boxed history file with the car includes: -
· Pouch containing 2nd set of keys, commemorative medal, tax discs since 1958
· Published article on the car + show board
· Buff logbook\Registration Docs, MOT’s, etc.
· Documentation & invoices of work completed by last owner
· Transcripts of conversations with previous owners that really tell the story of the car
Today the Austin is one of the most original classics that you could wish to find. Most cars of this period are restored or corroded – this is neither and remains much as she left Longbridge in 1953 with original paint and interior.
Mechanically she has been enthusiastically maintained as part of a small private collection in West Sussex covering just over 1,000 miles in the last four years – the owner does not believe in trailer queens!
Cars this remarkable rarely come to market and the 1950’s styling simply never goes out of date – it is a stunning combination. We expect this very rare survivor to find an appreciative new custodian very quickly.
Rover 2000SC - 3 Owners/Auto
The Rover 2000 P6 was introduced in October 1963. It was a brand new designed and was acknowledged by press and public alike as an excellent car delivering comfort with superb handling and safety. The Rover went on to be the first ever European Car of the Year in 1964 and the engine capacity was increased to 2200cc during 1973 to meet stringent USA emission controls and also to increase engine torque - a real benefit for the automatic model.
At Milestones we have a soft spot for P6’s and this 2200SC is a remarkable car with just three owners from new having spent her entire life on the Isle of Wight. We understand the first time she has ever been off the island/on the mainland since delivery from the factory in 1972 was when we collected the car from the third owner.
In recent years the P6 has been carefully used/maintained – the last service included a replacement radiator, brake master cylinder & calliper.
Recommissioned around 15 years ago the car benefitting from a respray in original Mexico Brown, engine/gearbox work & replacement oatmeal leather/brown piped seats (the owner didn’t like cloth), door cards carpets and the addition of the “Continental” spare wheel kit.
On the road the car is a pleasure to drive with power steering and super smooth automatic gearbox. There is a nice history file with MOT’s back to 1985, invoices from 1993, a summary of previous owners, driver’s handbook, contemporary broachers etc.
If you have ever considered a P6 this is an excellent opportunity to purchase a well sorted highly original car that is super easy to live with and will give years of pleasure to the lucky new owner.
Lanchester LD 10 – Very Original/High Specification
Frederick Lanchester designed Britain’s first ever petrol-driven, four-wheeled motor car in 1895 and founded the Lanchester Engine Company in 1899. The company quickly gained a reputation for engineering brilliance and ingenuity that rivalled Rolls Royce. Quality comes at a price and in 1931 Frederick’s no compromise attitude forced the company to be sold to BSA/Daimler and production finally ceased in 1956
At Milestone Classics we have a soft spot for classic saloons from the 1950’s and the Lanchester really does tick all the boxes.
The LD 10 is a high quality, small saloon produced between 1946 and 1951. Built on a sturdy chassis with aluminium body (by Barkers) the model retained the time-honoured fluid flywheel and Wilson pre-selector transmission with coil spring front independent suspension. The 1.3 OHV engine delivers just over 40bhp, sufficient to propel the car to a heady 70mph with the passengers enjoying a high level of comfort.
First registered at the Coventry Tax Office the car has had just six previous owners and shows an indicated mileage of 76,000 which, given the condition of the car, we believe to be correct. The history file contains MOT’s back to 1982, a photocopy of original logbook, driver’s handbook etc. and bills indicating regular maintenance by the last enthusiastic owner.
The Lanchester is the epitome of 1950’s motoring. The pre-selector gearbox/fluid flywheel combination is wonderful to use & the original interior is like stepping back in time – it feels like you must be in an Agatha Christie novel!
Ready to use and enjoy (the previous owner used the car extensively for TV work earning a lucrative income) the LD 10 is perfect for Classic Car shows, Goodwood Revival or simply a trip out to the pub on a summer's evening.
Triumph 2000 – Manual/Overdrive/Power Steering
The Triumph 2000, designed by the Italian stylist Giovanni Michelotti was introduced at the 1963 London Motor Show. The Triumph defined a new sector of the market – a sports saloon for the aspiring family man in an affordable and modern package.
Milestones are delighted to offer to our discerning customers this prize winning early Mk2 saloon in the stunning combination of Valencia blue bodywork/oatmeal interior.
The large history folder indicates that our Triumph was built on 16th February 1970 and despatched to J. R. J. Mansbridge Ltd of Lincoln. The Triumph was purchased by a local engineering company and used as a chauffeur driven car for senior staff. On his retirement in 1980 the chauffeur was gifted the car and he used her privately for several years.
The next owner, a retired engineer, purchased the car in 1990 and completely stripped, replaced & refurbished just about every part on his Triumph to concours standard – the cups are still with the car (Best Mk2 @ the Register National Day in 2017).
The Triumph was purchased by her next owner (Editor of “SIX appeal” Triumph 2000/2500/2,5 Register) and he meticulously maintained the car (including an article in the Club Magazine in June 2020) until purchased by Milestone Classics. The last owner is only selling his Triumph to make space for another Milestone car and we were delighted when he asked us to market the car on his behalf.
The Triumph has real presence and is a credit to the previous owners – the pictures speak for themselves. We particularly like the way the 1990 restoration has stood the test of time - a real testament to the skill, knowledge, & quality of the work and today has a lovely patina that comes with use, time, and love.
On the road the car drives extremely well with excellent brakes, super smooth straight six engine, overdrive gearbox and power steering making the Triumph very capable of handling modern day traffic conditions and an absolute pleasure to drive
At Milestones we love the Triumph straight six engine and the 2000 saloons are an ideal choice for someone looking for a slightly larger family car with sporting pretensions that will provide an entertaining drive be it out to the local pub or a road trip across France.
Triumph Toledo – 5 0wners/11k miles/Outstanding
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 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 1st March 1976 Miss Mary Maud Ellis had her new Toledo delivered from Hewitt’s (Walsall) to her house in Powys. The Toledo was her pride and joy and she used the car sparingly up to 1993 when the car was put away in her garage until 2008 when her nephew liberated the car with just 5,300 miles on the clock and original factory (plastic) seat covers.
The car passed to a family friend who stored the car for another five years until purchased on 21st February 2013 when it was recommissioned, passed an MOT & taxed for the first time in 20 years.
Milestone Classics travel further than most to find our exceptional cars and when we were contacted by a long-standing customer who advised that he owned one of the best Toledo’s in the country we could not resist.
Today the Toledo is one of the most original examples that you could wish to own. The car drives perfectly, the interior looks around two years old and the body looks stunning (having received paint some years ago) and has absolutely no corrosion issues. Under the bonnet is utterly original – just how we like to see our cars.
We have driven the Toledo for around 100 miles (we complete extended test drives for all our cars prior to sale) and the car is an absolute delight – Jamie would like to keep it as his everyday run-around!
There is a huge history folder with original Bill of Sale, all MOT’s, Passport to Service, Supercover labels, Brochures, Invoices, Owners Handbook, Show Plaques – it is one of the best we have ever seen.
Cars with this provenance/in this condition rarely come to market. The Toledo would sit well in any garage, and we recommend early viewing in order to fully appreciate this remarkable little Triumph.
Triumph Stag S2 (Auto): Photographic Restoration
Designed by Michelotti as a luxury sports car the Stag was enthusiastically received when launched in 1970. The Italian styling, V8 engine/performance and Triumph brand should have guaranteed success but a rushed implementation led to the car quickly gaining a poor reputation.
Post-production solutions to this lack of development have been identified & applied and today the Stag is recognised as a stylish classic with values rising quickly over recent years
Our car, finished in the stunning combination of Tahiti Blue with oatmeal interior, was dispatched from the factory on 26th January 1977 to Lankasters Limited, Kingston-on-Thames making this a later Series 2 example.
The car was the subject of a complete photographic restoration by a garage owner around 2010. Any corrosion found was replaced by new metal and replacement panels fitted as required. Mechanically all components were checked and replaced as necessary – this included a reconditioned engine. In addition, the car was treated to a new hood and replacement interior.
Since the restoration the car has been cosseted by a member of the Classic & Historic Motor Club only being used for shows and club excursions covering around 1,000 miles. The Triumph came to us from a regular customer in part-exchange for our Vauxhall Victor FB.
On the road the car is an absolute pleasure to drive. Power steering, automatic gearbox, servo assisted brakes and the original Triumph V8 provides an utterly addictive soundtrack – there is nothing not to like!
Ready to be used and enjoyed, this Stag will provide lots of happy memories to the lucky new owners.
Standard 8 – Gold Star Model
The Standard Eight introduced in 1953 was a completely new four door saloon with unit construction and an overhead-valve engine. By 1957 the 803cc engine produced 30 bhp at 5000 rpm through a 4-speed gearbox and the last run ’Gold Star’ benefitted from an opening boot and wind-up windows. The car was popular with small businesses & driving schools alike and over 136,000 were produced.
Our lovely original car was initially a company vehicle with James Pascall Ltd Mitcham and has had only five keepers from new. The previous owner lavished lots of attention on “Stanley” including body restoration in original Powder Blue, various mechanical work and today the car drives extremely well.
Still carrying original registration number, excellent two-tone interior/roof lining/carpets and a history folder that includes original buff logbook & service book, correspondence from previous owners, MOT’s, invoices etc. this Standard is a rare survivor in time warp condition
Stanley is an ideal entry to classic car ownership and will give years of pleasure to the lucky new owner.
Morgan 4/4 Roadster: Family Owned/23k Miles/FSH
Introduced in 1936 the Morgan Plus 4 was the Morgan Motor Company's first car with 4 wheels - the model designation 4/4 stood for 4 wheels and 4 cylinders. Always a popular choice with sports car enthusiasts across the globe, the combination of 1930;s styling with modern performance and reliability has ensured that the car is as popular today as it was in 1936.
Ordered in late 1998 from F H Douglas (London’s oldest Morgan dealer founded in 1929) Mr R J Sullivan had to wait until 2002 for his new Morgan to arrive. Finished in Corsa Red the specification included chrome wire wheels, walnut dashboard, clock radio. stone leather (piped with red) interior and mohair hood. The car looked absolutely stunning and was his pride and joy for the next twenty years – always garaged, serviced every year (excluding covid) and never driven in the rain.
The only addition to the factory specification was a chrome luggage rack professionally fitted to enhance the vintage appearance of the Morgan and to provide some additional practicality for weekends away.
The history folder is one of the best we have seen with correspondence from 1998 – Morgan’s are unique as in having a history folder older than the car! The file contains the original dealer’s letter (1998), Acknowledgement of Specification (2001), Deposit Invoice & Final Invoice (2001) + all MOT’s, and every service invoice totalling thousands of pounds. It is a remarkable testament to John’s commitment to maintain his car in tip-top condition.
Today the Morgan drives as good as she looks. The 1800cc Ford engine and 5 speed gearbox makes this a very capable car - to understand the allure of these iconic sports cars you really do have to drive one, they tick every classic box.
Equally at home on long distance continental tours or simply a trip to the Goodwood Revival we recommend early viewing in order to fully appreciate the charms of this true British sports car.
AH Sprite Mk IV – Matching Numbers/30,000 miles
Welcome to the sale of an exceptional Austin Healey Sprite that has had just six owners and covered a warranted 30,000 miles from new that Milestones had the pleasure of selling three years ago.
Registered in London on 1st August 1971 and finished in Bronze Yellow with matching factory hardtop/black interior this remarkably original car has clearly been cherished by the previous owners, the two previous owners were engineers who recognised the integrity and cherished the originality of this rare Sprite.
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.
The 1970’s Bronze colour scheme, my personal favourite, presents extremely well with a deep shine and a superb patina that simply cannot be replicated during a restoration. The rare factory hard-top is in exceptionally good condition with the hood available underneath should you wish to revert to open-top motoring.
The history file contains all MOTs since July 1976, Heritage Certificate, invoices, and original handbook.
Utterly original, low mileage, low ownership cars are highly desirable in the current market. This is a very rare opportunity and we expect our “Small Healey” to find an appreciative new owner quickly.
AH Frogeye Sprite: Restored South African Car
The “Frogeye” Sprite was announced to the press at the Monaco GP in May 1958. Manufactured at the MG factory it was the first volume production car in the world to use unitary construction and the result was a superb car with engaging performance and go-cart handling for the princely sum of £699
Milestones are delighted to market one of the straightest Frogeye Sprites that you could wish to own. The Sprite was originally exported to South Africa in 1959 as a righthand drive CKD car and repatriated into the UK during 2000.
The car has certainly benefited from 40 years in the dry South African climate and presents extremely well with super straight (all steel) panels and no corrosion – unlike most UK cars.
The current owner, a lifelong car enthusiast, purchased the Frogeye in 2014 and has lavished significant time and money on the car since. The history folder contains all invoices, registration document, photographs of the restoration etc. during his custodianship.
Summary of Work:
· 2014 – Fuel Pump, Water Pump, Hoses/Clips, Brake Overhaul
· 2015 – Car stripped - Full bare metal respray.
· 2015 – Clutch, Lights, Ignition Barrel. Windscreen
· 2016 – Radiator Grill, Anti-Rollbar, Wiper Motor, O/Riders, Interior.
· 2017 – Rebuilt (1275cc) Engine & Gearbox, Distributor, Wood Rim S/Wheel.
· 2018 – Exhaust/Silencer, Carbs Rebuilt, Rev Counter
· 2019 – Bonnet Alignment, Tyres
The Sprite also benefits from a new wiring loom, side-screens & hood, disc-brake conversion with brake servo to cope with the upgraded engine/gearbox and runs on a set of minilite style wheels – she looks very sharp
On the road the car does not disappoint with brisk performance, excellent brakes, superb handling and addictive exhaust note. The new interior and restored bodywork have mellowed extremely well, the test of any restoration, and today the car looks as good as she drives – you will smile while behind the wheel, this is the essence of classic car ownership.
Perfect for weekends away or simply a trip to the local pub, the Frogeye is ready for the next owner to use and enjoy - we recommend early viewing in order to fully appreciate this stunning little car.
MG TC – Stunning Example/Original UK Car
The MG TC was the first post war car produced by MG and was every inch the traditional British sports car. It was an immediate success with good performance courtesy of the XPAG engine and entertaining handling. Nearly all the production run of 10,000 cars were exported to the Empire or USA and original UK examples with provenance have risen sharply in value over recent years
Milestone Classics are delighted to offer for sale one of the nicest and best driving TC’s you could wish to find finished in the stunning combination of Primrose Yellow with Apple Green interior. For me, the TC is the pick of the ‘T-Types’ with 19” wire wheels, cutaway wings exposing the front beam axle and more interior space than its predecessors.
The car is an original UK RHD example registered on 8th September 1947 and carries its original ‘MG’ registration plate. There is a huge amount of paperwork with the car containing invoices and service records back to 1962. In 1964 the car was purchased by a Mr & Mrs Hayes from Middlesex who emigrated to Australia in 1981 shipping the car with them. They cherished the TC for 35 years until 1998 when the car was sold to the only Australian owner who was based in Victoria who set about restoring the car.
· Car completely stripped
· All mechanical components inspected/refurbished as required. Work included overhauling of engine & gearbox, clutch, brakes, kingpins.
· Datsun steering box (excellent upgrade)
· Replacement timber frame, rear wings, running boards, dashboard, instruments & windscreen
· Upholstery to seats/doors
The car was repatriated in 2014 and has been used regularly by the only UK custodian since being maintained regardless of cost. Since arriving in the UK the TC has benefited from new rear springs, dynamo rebuild, replacement hood and recent half shaft.
The refurbishment work has mellowed very nicely over the last 25 years and today the car presents exactly as we like our own cars – very sharp but not over restored.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a properly sorted TC that drives as good as she looks. Ready to use and enjoy, we recommend early viewing to fully appreciate the charms of this very special car.
