Vauxhall Victor FB, simply outstanding
The FB launched in 1961 reflected the transatlantic styling popular across Europe at the time and over 320,000 were manufactured before production ceased in 1964. The car received a revised engine with optional four speed floor change gearbox and was available as a saloon or factory designed estate car.
The FB was popular with the public but hard work and poor rust protection has resulted in the estate being an incredibly rare sight and good examples are highly prized.
Described as “The best FB estate he had ever seen” by the editor of the Vauxhall Victor Owners Club Milestone Classics are delighted to offer this remarkable car for sale. She is a 1962 model, a Super, but having optional separate front seats and four speed gearbox. The two-tone (Bermuda blue with Moonlight blue roof) is excellent and the rear end design conjures up images of American station wagons of the period. Underneath the Victor is as good as the top – she simply looks like a one year old car.
Stepping into the car is like going back in time. The two-tone “Vynide” interior and deep pile carpets are superb with the original jukebox dashboard making this a truly exception driving experience. The large history file contains invoices/MOT’s from the 1960’s onwards, drivers handbook and details of the restoration conducted in 1996.
At Milestones we always look for exceptional cars to offer to our customers. This is without question the best FB Estate you could hope to find and we expect her to find an appreciative new owner very quickly
Herald 13/60 Convertible - 37,000miles/Never Restored
The Triumph Herald was launched in 1959 and, like the Spitfire, was designed by Giovanni Michelotti. The 13/60 was introduced in 1967 and featured an enlarged engine giving improved performance and a re-designed interior that provided additional space and comfort. The stylish 13/60 convertible was popular with the public providing four seat, open top motoring with useful performance and sales remained strong until production ceased in 1971.
Milestone Classics are delighted to market this outstanding example that has had just 5 owners and covered 37,000 miles from new. Manufactured in 1969 the first lady owner sold the Herald in September 1973 for the princely sum of £750 to a business man who took the car to New Zealand when he was posted overseas in June 1983. While in New Zealand the car received a body-off refurbishment (she did not need restoration) in 1989 and was brought back to the UK when the owner returned home. He finally sold the car in 2004 after 30 years of careful ownership.
Today the 13/60 is one of the best examples you could wish to find with a long history of careful maintenance. The underside of the car has never been near a welding torch and the chassis/bulkhead/under-bonnet area are all body colour.
The interior presents extremely well with replacement carpets and excellent original seats and wooden dash. The large history file tells the story of the car with lots of invoices, shipping documents, MOT’s etc.
Always maintained regardless of cost this 13/60 is ready for the lucky new owner to use and enjoy. We recommend early viewing in order to avoid disappointment.
Hillman Mink Series 6 Delux – Show Winner
The Audax bodied Minx introduced in 1956 was designed by the Rootes Group with the assistance of the Raymond Loewy design organisation, who were involved in the design of Studebaker coupés in 1953. The trans-Atlantic styling was well received by ‘Middle England’ providing a level of style, refinement and performance for the aspiring profession (my headmaster owned one!) and production continued until 1967 when the final Series 6 ceased production.
Milestones are delighted to offer to market this remarkable last of the line Series 6 Hillman Minx finished in stunning Willow Green with matching interior, super smooth 1725cc five bearing engine, front disc brakes and all synchromesh four speed gearbox with overdrive upgrade.
The previous owner has carried out significant work on the Minx and she presents extremely well. The car has excellent paint, re-chromed bumpers & over-riders, new carpets, seat belts, exhaust system, tyres, electronic ignition system with new coil/leads.
On the road the car is an absolute pleasure to drive and the overdrive gearbox means the Hillman copes comfortably with modern road conditions. The history file contains old MOT’s, a summary of recent work supported by a variety of invoices, handbook etc.
Cars of this quality rarely come to market and the Minx will provide lots of pleasure and happy memories to the lucky new owner
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.
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.
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
· 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.
We recommend early viewing in order to fully appreciate this remarkable car
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.
VW Camper Split Screen – £45,000 of Expenditure
The Volkswagen camper is an iconic image recognised all over the world. In the UK a number of companies carried out conversions and one of the most popular was completed by J. P. White (Sidmouth) Ltd. Branded as the “Devon Caravette” this conversion is one of the most flexible available with seating for seven passengers that converts into a double bed with cool-box, cooker and sink on board.
Milestone Classics have a soft-spot for air-cooled VW’s and this is a really straight example that has had a huge amount of time and effort spent in order that she can be used and enjoyed with confidence
· New Engine (Vege) in 2017
· New Gearbox including clutch, CSP shifter & reduction boxes
· New steering box/front beam
· King pin/hub assembly rebuilt, suspension & brakes
· Dynamo (Hella)
· Voltage regulator (Bosche)
· Distributor, points, condenser, rotor
· Heater system
· Front & rear cabin reupholstered

· Major body restoration 2013/14
In October 2012 the camper was despatched to the respected D. Mills Metalcraft and a six month £23,000 full restoration completed and finished in the stunning combination of Sea Blue and Pearl White.
All areas of chassis/bodywork received attention as required (lots of invoices describing the work) and the final results have stood the test of time extremely well with just a small area on the driver’s door and the rear off-side wheel-arch showing any blemish.
In 2015 the van was despatched for a full mechanical overhaul to Beetlelink and over the next four years a rolling programme of work has been completed covering just about every component in the camper at a cost in excess of £20,000
The original Devon interior has been retained (including original evaporation fridge, water tank and cooker) with both front and rear seats being reupholstered
Mechanically this is one of the best T1’s we have driven (have to confess superior to my 1966 Canterbury Pitt). On the road the engine pulls well, gear changes are easy and the brakes remarkably good.
The new owner will have the option to detail the final areas of the interior/exterior or simply leave as is and use to create memories on new adventures – from personal experience I would recommend the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland.....
We recommend viewing in order to fully appreciate the charm of this lovely splitscreen camper.
Alfa Romeo GTV6 2.5 – Unique Opportunity
The Alfa Romeo GTV6 was introduced in 1980, taking the Giugiaro designed Alfetta GT fastback coupe and dropping in Alfa's Busso V6 engine with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection. The car received rave reviews from the motoring press and went on to have a successful career in Touring Car racing.

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.
Their brief was to retain all original features including banjo steering wheel, semaphore indicators, “clapping hands” windscreen wipers etc. while replacing any items as required in order to ensure the car was safe/a pleasure to use
Summary of Work:
· Body panels replaced as required
· Replacement seats, door cards, carpets

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
PRICE: £ 6.495
Vauxhall FE VX2300GLS – Auto/Power Steering
The VX was the very last version of the FE, after which Vauxhall dispensed with the Victor name, moving the range further up-market in order to differentiate them from the Cavalier. The new flagship model became the 2.3 litre engine GLS, described by the motoring press at the time as a “very agreeable car” and strong sales reflected that the public agreed
Milestone Classics are delighted to offer one of the nicest VX’s in the country and a car that Jamie has known personally for nearly 20 years. The Vauxhall has the four speed automatic gear box & power steering and on the road is a real pleasure to drive and easily capable of coping with modern road conditions.
The previous owner maintained the VX regardless of cost and recently the car has benefitted from a new vinyl roof, stainless steel exhaust, new timing belt, brakes overhaul etc. The top of the range specification includes unmarked luxury interior in superb condition and the body work is excellent with just the odd mark commensurate with a car that was resprayed many years ago – just how we like our classics to be.
The history file includes the stamped service book indicating that the car was originally sold by H D Steel & Son, Worthing during September 1978, old V5’s, MOT’s, invoices back to 1980, a hand written log of oil/fuel/parts purchased and a Practical Classics magazine article featuring the car
This is without question one of the best VX’s you could hope to find and we expect her to find an appreciative new owner very quickly..
MG TF 135 – FSH/Low Mileage/Matching Numbers
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 but the car was blighted by a range of issues - now all resolved with retro-engineered solutions - and today represents a superb entry level classic.
At Milestone Classics we like to keep a number of outstanding & affordable cars in stock and this MG TF ticks both boxes.
· Registered 2005, 4 owners and just 42,000 miles
· Matching Numbers with full documented service history
· Starlight Silver, new mohair hood & black leather interior

The last owner has cossetted the car and used her for classic shows and club tours including Scottish Highlands (NC 500), Brittany/Normandy and Alpine Tour including Stelvio, Gothard, Nauders & Furka Passes.
Without question the TF 135 is a true “Abingdon” MG with engaging (mid-engine) performance and excellent road manners - it is one of best kept secrets of the classic car world.
Today this MG looks superb and is ready to drive absolutely anywhere. We recommend early viewing and a test drive in order to fully appreciate this stunning classic.
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.
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.
MGB Roadster – Fully Restoration by Retired Engineer
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. Today these later cars, converted to chrome-bumper specification represent an excellent entry level classic car offering all the fun of the earlier B’s for a fraction of the cost.
Milestone Classics are delighted to offer one of the straightest MGB Roadsters that you could wish to find. The car was originally exported to America in 1978 and was brought back to the UK in 1992 by Beech Hill Garage, converted to RHD and sold to the first UK lady owner for the princely sum of £3,800
While in the UK the car had had just four keepers. The last, a retired automotive engineer (who ran his own garage in Yorkshire for many years), has just completed a two year restoration as a retirement project.

Austin A30 – Prize Winner/Magazine Featured
Launched at the 1951 Earls Court Motor Show the A30 was the small family car produced by Austin in direct competition with the Morris Minor. Manufactured over a four year period the A30 has always been popular starter classic with excellent handling, cute looks and a good spares network
Our lovely small rear window, two door, A30 was manufactured in 1955 and restored by Keith and Ann Watson in the early 1980’s who purchased the car from the first owner who lived locally. The car won numerous prizes during their ownership including the A30 Supreme Class (A30/A35 Owners Club) on a number of occasions through the 1980’s and 1990’s.
The car was purchased in 2015 by Richard Southall, a retired headmaster, who was not looking to buy an A30 but simply could not resist the charm of the car or the quality of the original restoration. Richard serviced the car regularly during his ownership replacing any items as required and brought the car back to show standard where, after a thirty year gap she won the A30 class again in 2015
On the road the little A30 drives as good as she looks with excellent engine, gearbox, brakes etc. The interior looks like new and the history file includes pictures of the restoration, maintenance service book, MOT’s back to 1984, various invoices, magazine articles, sales literature etc.
At Milestone Classics we have an enviable reputation for selling some of the best cars on the market today – this car will not disappoint. She is ready to win prizes for the lucky new owner or simply use and enjoy.
We expect this exceptional car to find a new keeper very quickly
