Vauxhall Victor FB Estate – Restored/3 Owners

The FB launched in 1961 reflected the transatlantic styling popular across Europe at the time and over 320,000 cars were manufactured before production ceased in 1964.  The FB Estate was particular popular with the public but hard work and poor rust protection has resulted in this model being an incredibly rare sight – until now

 

Milestone Classics are delighted to have sourced a second rare survivor for our discerning customers.  Manufacture in 1963 our FB Super features a column gear change/bench seat interior.  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 – I would have to fit whitewall tyres and wooden bow roof-rack!

 

The FB has been with the last owner for 25 years.  Bought as a rolling restoration from the second owner (same family) the car went through a full restoration during 2002 & 2003 including NOS doors, bonnet etc. and professional respray in original colour scheme.   Today the car is stunning and a real testament to the skill and commitment of the restoration company.

 

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 (including the original loan passbook, buff log book, service book, receipts for fuel etc.) and details of the restoration.

 

At Milestones we always look for exceptional cars to offer to our customers.  This is an absolutely lovely classic that would grace any car show, country pub or National Trust car park and ideal for the dog owning classic car enthusiast. 

 

We expect her to find an appreciative new custodian very quickly

MGB - Heritage Re-shell/Tuned 1860cc/Power Steering

 

The MGB was the sports car launched in May 1962 to replace the MGA.  The car was a modern design at the time using a monocoque structure that was light, strong with excellent road holding and a 0-60mph time of 11 seconds with a top speed of around 100mph. 

 

Milestone Classics are delighted to market one of the best specification and well sorted MGB Roadsters you could wish to own

 

The car was originally supplied to University Motors London on 25th February 1969 and was totally re-stored using a new Heritage shell by Keith Breton Cars, Surbiton in 1997. 

 

The owner went for a no expense specification that included:

·         New shell in Tartan Red

·         Chrome wire wheels

·         Rebuilt Stage II engine

·         Mechanical overhaul

·         Lead free head

·         Walnut dash board

·         Biscuit leather trim

·         Motolita steering wheel

·         Stainless steel exhaust

·         Power Steering – Fitted 2019

 

Since the rebuild the car has covered just 15,000miles, never been used in the rain and kept in a heated garage.  The car drives superbly with the fast road engine delivering a sound track that makes the radio redundant. 

 

The large history folder contains lots of invoices and MOT’s since the rebuild, Heritage certificate, photographs of the restoration, summary of previous owners etc.

 

MGB’s in this condition with this specification are rare to find.  Ready to drive anywhere this remarkable car will give years of pleasure to the lucky new owner.

Austin A35 – Six year rebuild/superb specification

Introduced in 1956 the A35 replaced the A30 giving improved acceleration & top speed to meet the improving road conditions and growing expectations of drivers in the mid 1950’s.

Our example is an early car manufactured on 1st February1957 in the favoured combination of tweed grey with contrasting cherry red interior.  After an extensive period of time in storage our A35 was purchased in 2007 by an automobile engineer as a re-commissioning project that quickly escalated into a full strip down and six year photographic rebuild to near concourse standard. 

 

All mechanical components were inspected repaired/replaced as required, a new interior with seats, roof lining & carpets fitted finished off with a first class professional respray

In 2018 Milestone Classics purchased the car and sold her to the last owner who wanted to re-create an A35 that “would be capable of coping with modern traffic conditions using upgrades available to owners during the 1960’s while look utterly standard”.  

Paul & Jamie worked closely with Robin sourcing/developing the car over a period of six weeks and the final result is remarkable.

Work Included:

·         Front disc brake conversion

·         Brake servo + remote brake master cylinder

·         Cooper (12G295) cylinder head

·         Electronic ignition

·         Twin SU carbs & manifold

·         Electric fuel pump

·         Alternator converson

·         Anti-roll bar with lowered suspension

·         Kenlow fan

·         H4 Headlamps + visors

·         Heated windscreen, upgraded wipers & electric washers

·         Ignition cut-off

·         Rear fog light & reversing light

·         Hazard lights

·         Dashboard binnacle including oil pressure, water temp & rev counter

·         New carpets

·         Waxoyl floor/box sections

·         Safety belts

·         New chrome radiator surround & sun visor

Built with a passion by the owner and the Milestones team the final result is one the prettiest and most capable A35’s you could hope to find.  Be quick…..

MGC GT – Superb Car with Overdrive

The MGC, planned as a replacement for the Austin Healey 3000, was based on the MGB and intended as a long distance tourer with a smooth straight six engine developing 150bhp, a top speed in excess of 120mph and, most importantly, an utterly addictive soundtrack. 

The press launch of the car was a disaster (incorrect tyre pressures and direct comparison with the AH 3000 was like chalk to cheese) but the passing years have seen opinions move and today the MGC is recognised as a highly desirable, capable and stylish classic and represents one of Abingdon’s best kept secrets.  

  

Milestone Classics have finally found another MGCGT that meets our high standards and the expectations of our discerning customers.  The ‘C’ was purchased by Peter Collis (Proprietor - Devon Classic Cars) in 2007 as a showcase for his restoration business.  During the next three years every component on the car was removed, inspected, refurbished or replaced and the only deviation from specification was a 3.07 (V8) rear axle for long distance continental touring.  The car was displayed in various stages of restoration at car shows/exhibitions across the South West and the final cost exceeded £30,000 at trade rates in 2010!

The MG was sold to a celebrity owner in 2014 and on to a private collector last year where a number of expensive upgrades were made it truly is a very well sorted MGC.

Today our ‘C’ is one of the best on the market.  Superb paint & panel fit, body colour underneath, excellent chrome (including wire wheels), outstanding mechanical condition, interior is like new – the car is impossible to fault and remains in show condition

With only 4,457 GT’s being manufactured this is a rare opportunity to purchase what many see as the ultimate Grand Tourer.  We recommend early viewing in order to avoid disappointment.

Rover 80 – Rarest P4

 

It’s said, the Raymond Loewy Studebaker Champion influenced the Wilks brothers as they looked to supply post-war Britain with a range of mid-size quality saloon cars under the Rover banner. The siblings, already responsible for the iconic Land Rover launched the ‘Cyclops’ P3 at Earls Court in 1949.  

 

A decade later the Rover 80 was produced for just two years alongside the 100 and is considered the best of the four-cylinder P4’s, benefiting from sharper handling courtesy of less engine weight across the front axle.   The model enjoyed front vacuum servo assisted disc brakes, wider tyres and overdrive operating in top gear, as standard with the four-speed transmission. 

 

Our Rover ‘80’ was registered in Edgware during July 1961, the history file contains the original buff logbook.  The body shell presents well, especially underneath where attention to detail has been lavished whilst the pastel blue exterior finish really lifts the car. 

 

Enter via rear suicide doors into a cabin interior that still offers that ‘gentlemen’s club’ feel. Bench seats are original red leather and the well preserved walnut veneer combine with chrome and period dials really do enhance the classic driving experience. 

 

Mechanically the car has been well maintained with significant expenditure in recent years including a rebuild for the very slick manual gearbox and a later 34 ICH Weber carburettor.  An interior battery isolator switch has also been fitted to provide additional security

 

For enthusiasts who appreciate ‘classics with character’ this ‘80’ really makes a statement; nicknamed the ‘Auntie Rovers’ a motoring conveyance that offered luxury and presence during its 15 years in production; early viewing recommended for our slice of British heritage.

Wolseley 1300(Mk 2) Rare Automatic/Utterly Original

The ADO16 (Amalgamated Drawing Office project number 16) was designed by Alec Issigonis and launched in 1962.  Issigonis set out to design a larger and more sophisticated car than the Mini incorporating more advanced features and innovations - the result of his work won acclaim from all quarters and sold strongly both at home & overseas. 

 

The Mk II launched 1967 (Wolseley - October 1968) was equally popular boasting the larger 1275cc ‘A’ Series engine, high levels of comfort and, of course, the Wolseley grill with illuminated badge.

 

Milestones are always searching for outstanding cars for classic car enthusiasts to use and enjoy.  Finished in Blaze - a rare factory option at the time - stunning original blue interior, lovely wooden dashboard with strip-speedo and an indicated mileage of just 44,000 miles from new.  

 

This Wolseley 1300 is in utterly original condition.  The car has never been welded (still has spot welds in the rear arches and seams in sills), under the carpets is original factory paint and the engine bay present extremely well. 

 

On the road the car drives superbly – whisper quiet with lovely light steering and the four speed automatic gearbox operating smoothly. The history file indicates just four owners from new and contains Drivers Handbook, Original Sales Brochure, MOT’s back to 1998 etc.

 

Original cars of this quality rarely come onto the open market and we recommend early viewing in order to fully appreciate this remarkable car

Morris Oxford – Stunning Example/Rare Colour

The ‘Oxford’ was manufactured by William Morris (later BMC) between 1913 & 1971 and the Farina Oxfords V & VI were the final incarnations.  A total of 208,823 of this model were produced and they proved extremely popular with the aspiring middle classes and upwardly mobile family buyer.  Today most examples have fallen victim to corrosion or the Banger Racers from the 1980’s and good original examples are hard to find and highly prized.

 

At Milestones we seek out well priced, unmolested cars in outstanding condition for our discerning customers.  The early life of our Oxford is a little unclear but we understand the car was retained by the first owner for many years before being put into storage by his widow.

 

Unlike most Farina bodied cars this example has never been welded – all the sills, outriggers and floors are exactly as they left the factory in 1965.  As you would expect with one of cars, she starts easily, drives very well and copes easily with modern road conditions.

 

The deep red Damask bodywork really suits the car and the original chrome bumpers & exterior trim are in excellent condition.  On entering the car the leather seats, door cards, carpets, roof lining etc. are all exceptional – the grey leather simply looks stunning and the aroma is like stepping back into the mid 1960’s!

 

There is a small history file with the car including a variety of invoices, MOT’s, Drivers Handbook etc. The car has only come to Milestones as the owner found her a tight fit in his garage and has decided to go for a slightly smaller classic.

 

Farinas in this condition are difficult to find.  Ideal for weekends away, classic car shows or simply a trip down to the local pub this car will provide lots of pleasure for many years to come to the lucky new owners.

VW Beetle 1974 – Restored/Stunning Example

 

Considered one of the single most influential cars of the 20th century, more than 21 million Volkswagen beetles were sold from 1938 to 2003. Its Autobahn-cruising reliability and "People's Car" ease of service established it as the quintessential economy car by 1950, while the quirky styling and intelligent, self-deprecating advertisements (starting in 1967) solidified its legacy as a cultural reference point.

 

At Milestone Classics we have, as many of you know, a weakness for air-cooled VW’s and when the Beetle was offered to us we simply could not refuse.  This late 1973 (left factory 6th November 1973 shipped to Ramsgate) 1303S special addition Beetle is finished in eye catching (Hellas Metallic) gold with a number of period options.

 

The history folder indicates that the Bug went into storage in 1986, did not emerge until 2012 and sailed through her MOT in 2014.  During the two year restoration the owner completed a full body and mechanical restoration (CD with pictures) with most panels replaced and rare parts sourced including original KTS wheels and KAMEI front spoiler.

 

On the road the car drives extremely well – the 1600cc engine, later brakes and alternator really does make this a Beetle capable of dealing with modern road conditions.    

 

The later styling with larger wraparound windows, elephant foot rear lamps, cloth/vinyl seats, and larger speedo work well with the metallic paint and the car draws attention wherever you park

 

The interior is to the original specification – the larger glass area makes for a bright environment and seats, dashboard, roof lining, carpets etc. are all in very good condition.  The history folder has the MOT history since restoration, pictures of the car when she was sold from storage, CD with lots of images, VW heritage certificate etc.

 

In summary, an absolutely lovely example of the “bestselling car in the world” the VW drives as good as she looks and will provide her lucky new owners with lots of pleasure & happy memories.

MBGT V8: Powertrain 4600cc/5 Speed/Power Steering

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 car, an 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 specification & fastest V8 GT possible. The MG was despatched 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

· Power steering (ez steer conversion)

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

· Minilite wheels (not replicas)

· New luxury leather interior.

· Replacement Chrome

   High quality professional respray

The finished car was sent to Gerald Dale Motorsport to go on their 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 superb car to drive, looks stunning, is utterly reliable and one of the fastest most capable MGB’s on the road today.   If I had the space this is the one that I would buy, use and enjoy……she is utterly addictive.

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.

MGC Roadster – Exceptional Car with Overdrive

The MGC, planned as a replacement for the Austin Healey 3000, was based on the MGB and intended as a long distance tourer with a smooth straight six engine developing 150bhp, a top speed in excess of 120mph and, most importantly, an utterly addictive soundtrack. 

The press launch of the car was a disaster (incorrect tyre pressures and direct comparison with the AH 3000 was like chalk to cheese) but the passing years have seen opinions move and today the MGC is recognised as a highly desirable, capable and stylish classic and represents one of Abingdon’s best kept secrets.

    

Milestone Classics have finally found another MGC that meets our high standards and the expectations of our discerning customers.  Our ‘C’ was originally exported to California in 1967 (first year of production) and re-patriated into the UK during 1994 by Brown & Gammons.  On arrival the car was recommissioned (photographs in history file), converted to RHD and finished in the best colour of British Racing Green with black leather seats with white piping - the final results are a real credit to the knowledge and skill of the engineers that rebuilt the car at that time

More recently the car has been meticulously maintained benefitting from a Fast-Road Engine (MG Motorsport - £6,000) with re-profiled camshaft from Kent Cams, Peter Burgess lead free/big valve head & lightened fly-wheel – married with the overdrive gearbox it is one of the best driving MGC’s you could wish to own.

The bodywork does not disappoint with exceptional panel fit, excellent paint finish, lovely chrome (including chrome wire wheels) and the interior is superb with new carpets, hood (folding frame not stick frame) and period radio upgraded for iPOD by the Vintage Wireless Company.

The car comes with a huge history file from the date of importation with all MOT’s, lots of invoices, contemporary sales literature etc.

For years the MGC has been an underrated car but it is now acknowledged as a genuine classic tourer that has grown into modern road conditions.  With only 4,542 roadsters being manufactured this is a rare opportunity to purchase a superb car that will give years of pleasure to the new owner.

VW Camper T25 – Autohomes Kamper (RHD)

 

The Volkswagen camper is an iconic image recognised all over the world.  The T25 marked a real transition for VW from the air-cooled Split Screen of the early 1950’s to the late 1980’s when the company introduced the wedged shaped T25 the last to be powered by a rear mounted (be it water cooled with petrol or diesel options) engine  

 

Many companies converted T25 vans and although Autohomes joined the party later than most they offered a range of high specification two berth & four berth options that proved very popular.  Today unmolested, well maintained, corrosion free T25’s are incredibly rare and outstanding examples are highly prized

 

Milestones are always looking for VW campers but we have never found a Type 25 that meets the exceptionally high standards that we set – until now.  Our T25 has been owned locally in Horsham all her life, has always been garaged and just three keepers, the last two husband and wife (who have owned the bus since 1992). 

 

Powered by a 1.9 petrol engine married to a four speed gearbox the camper is a real credit to the family who have owned her.  Initially purchased for retirement adventures and family days out, the bus has covered under 25,000 miles in the last 30 years but has always been taxed/MOT’ed and ready to go.  The Volkswagen has been taken by the vendor’s son, a precision engineer, every year for her MOT and a service at his workshop – she has never wanted for anything.

 

Today the bus has never been welded with absolutely zero filler and all paint & decals are original – no filled in/ground out seams like every other T25 we have ever viewed.  There is a small scratch on the sliding passenger door where the 84 year old owner rubbed the garage door (hence the decision to sell!) and one small bubble on the windscreen surround.

 

The interior is utterly original with zero wear and everything (fridge, cooker, heater etc.) works as it should.  The pop-up top is far more robust/weather proof than normal campers (see pictures) with two beds and below is a rock & roll bed for the grown-ups.

 

Everything you might require, be it a day at the beach with the kids or a full blown road-trip adventure across Europe comes with the bus – turn the key and away you go.  We have even left the David Essex cassette tapes for the new owner to enjoy.

 

For many years the T25 lived in the shadow of the T1 & T2 but in recent times the market has changed and today good RHD examples (sliding door to the curb not the road) are highly valued and represents the perfect way into the VW family.

Spitfire Mk IV – Full Restoration/Rare Colour

The Triumph Spitfire was introduced at the London Motor show of 1962.  The stylish body was designed by Giovanni Michelotti with running gear based on the Herald.  The Mk IV introduced in 1970 had the stylish “cut off” rear and modified suspension providing better road-holding and a more luxurious interior then any of the previous models. 

 

Milestones are delighted to market our extremely rare Sienna Brown MkIV that was fully restored during 2011/12 at a cost in excess of £15,000 

 

During the restoration all components were inspected and work included:

·         Bare metal respray - replacement inner/outer arches and panels as required

·         Engine overhauled – new pistons, big-ends, shell bearings etc

·         Unleaded head conversion

·         Brake servo

·         Electronic ignition and new coil

·         Alternator conversion

·         New fuel pump and rebuilt SU carbs

·         Made to measure mohair hood and replacement front/rear bumpers

·         Work previous to restoration included full brake & suspension overhaul, new           club interior including seats, carpets, wooden dash & steering wheel.

·         Reconditioned rear axle and gear box recently fitted

The extensive history is contained in two large box folders including original bill of sale, passport to service, driver’s handbook, full photographic explanation of the restoration, all invoices dating back to 1973 and every MOT certificate from 1985….one of the best  have ever seen

When a car has covered under 10,000 miles since full restoration, drives superbly and looks great with excellent paint/panel fit years after the original work was completed you know that the job was done properly and that you have no worries or potential nasty surprises in the future

  

Milestone’s drive 1,000’s of miles looking for classics just like this.  We recommend early viewing in order to fully appreciate this remarkable Spitfire.

Alvis TA21 – Restored/Meticulously Maintained

The TA21 was Alvis’s first all new post-was model.  Bodied by Muliner the car was slightly larger than its predecessor and boasted a straight 6 cylinder seven bearing engine that, when mated to twin SU carbs, delivered just under 100bhp/100mph making this a genuine gentleman’s express.

 

Milestone Classics are delighted to be able to offer this lovely car to market. Originally registered during May 1951 the Alvis has had just three custodians since 1977 and seven in total.  Between 1977/2009 considerable love and resources were lavished on the car including a stunning respray in black/silver and all chrome re-plated.

 

The previous owner has also cossetted the car.  Mechanical work has included:

·         Rebuilt cylinder head (unleaded conversion)

·         Electronic ignition

·         Electric fuel pump

·         New brakes, shocks & springs

·         New exhaust

·         Stainless steel manifold

·         New Tyres

·         New Carpets & Headlining

 

The large history file has MOT’s back to 1975, original handbook, lots of invoices, photographs and correspondence from previous owner.

 

Today the car is just how we like to find our classics.  The original leather and wood interior is like stepping back in time, mechanically she is spot on and the body/chrome work has mellowed nicely since the restoration nearly 20 years ago

 

The Alvis TA21 is one of the most capable 1950 sports saloons that you could wish to own.  Ready for continental touring, The Goodwood Revival or simply a run down to the local pub this stunning example will provide lots of pleasure to the lucky new owner.

Triumph Spitfire 1500 – Restored/Overdrive 

The Triumph Spitfire was introduced at the London Motor show of 1962.  The stylish body was designed by Giovanni Michelotti and the running gear was based on the Herald.  Although more expensive than the Midget/Sprite the design, linked to good performance, proved very successful. Production finally ceased in 1980 with the 1500, a much improved car with more powerful engine, superior suspension/brakes and the squared off rear that echoed the Triumph Stag.

Milestones are delighted to offer one of the most original specification Spitfire 1500’s that you could wish to find.  The car was restored over a period in excess of twenty years between 1993 & 2007 and only sold in 2014 because of a change in the owners circumstances.  Work included new body panels as required (the car is body colour underneath), unleaded cylinder-head, rebuilt gearbox/overdrive unit, rear axle and all other components as required.  

In 2016 the Spitfire was purchased by a retired engineer – he wanted the best car he could find to use and enjoy at his retirement home on the Isle of Wight and carried out any minor maintenance work as and when required.

On the road the Spitfire is a real credit to both owners.   The car performs well with no untoward mechanical noise or smoke, the gearbox/overdrive is excellent with a healthy burble through the twin exhaust pipes.

 

The interior – seats, carpets & hood – were all replaced during the restoration and the original wooden dash is excellent with no cracks or lifting in the wood veneer.   The large history file contains invoices and MOT’s back to 1989, previous V5’s and tax discs.

The Spitfire is an excellent way into classic soft-top motoring.  This example will provide the lucky new owners with lots of fun and happy memories for many years to come.

MG RV8 – just 30k miles 

The RV8 arrived as a direct result of British Motor Heritage looking to put the ‘B’ body shell back into production. MG desired a new roadster that they hoped would take sales from Mazda’s MX5 whilst plugging the time gap until their all new MGF arrived. Abbey Panels of Coventry supplied the flared arches that would house 205 section tyres whilst the Range Rover V8 powerplant offered 190 bhp, 234 lbs ft torque and 60mph in six seconds plus a large bonnet bulge to accommodate. A five-speed LT77 gearbox was used along with a new Salisbury rear axle and suspension featuring Koni dampers with uprated brakes; all of which brought the RV8 up to date. First seen at the British Motor Show in 1992 the new MG proved a massive hit with the Japanese market and of the 1983 chassis produced, only 400 remained in the UK, the vast majority exported to Japan. Many of the cars that visited the far east have since returned, most with limited use and minimal mileage; this car is one of those.

Finished in Woodcote Green Metallic with magnolia leather interior this example enjoys one of the most popular colour combinations. The curvaceous panels retain perfect factory gaps and inside enjoys perfect veneer, clean carpets and sumptuous leather . Returning to the UK early 1998 a Rover Group type approval certificate was issued and to date this car shows just 30k miles travelled with MOT history from 2004. A stack of invoices cover the last 15 years including the £2400 investment made in a power steering kit supplied and fitted by the MG Owners Club workshop in 2006. As you would expect performance is not an issue with the RV8 and this example sounds as exciting as it drives. Obviously, this roadster is about top down, wind in your hair motoring but with the hood up there are no unwanted noises inside the cabin, it clips into place easily and shows no age.

 

Here at Milestone Classics we have a soft spot for anything MG and having this RV8 in our showroom is a pleasure, early viewing is recommended as we are convinced it’s going to fly out to a new owner rather rapidly.

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.
Summary:
·   Registered 2005, 4 owners and just 42,000 miles
·   Matching Numbers with full documented service history
·   Starlight Silver, new mohair hood & black leather interior
·   Head gasket, cam/alternator belts & water pump replaced 2015
·   S/S coolant pipes 2016
·   MGOC full service & new brakes 2019 (£1,800)
·   MOT May 2020
·   Large history file including handbooks, MOT’s, invoices, pictures etc.

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.

Triumph Herald 13/60 – Superb/Utterly Original

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.  The final iteration of the model was the 13/60 with Vitesse style bonnet, improved performance and higher levels of comfort.  Production final ceased in 1970 (The Herald out lasted the Triumph 1300 introduced to replace it) based on the labour intensive production meaning every car was sold at a loss.

 

Milestones are delighted to offer a truly remarkable example of the 13/60.  The car has covered a warranted 34,000 from new and has never been restored or even welded.  Owned by the same family for 37 years (Husband/Wife/Nephew) and then four super fastidious owners the car is the best Herald we have ever seen – the pictures speak for car.

 

On the road the car starts instantly and drives without fault comfortably coping with modern road condition.  The original Wedgewood Blue paintwork is super sharp with no evidence of corrosion and the interior looks like it has only just left the factory – it is like stepping back in time

 

The interesting fully researched history of the cars life (including pictures of the original owners wedding), Heritage Certificate, MOT’s, tax discs, lots of receipts, original handbook etc. is one of the most comprehensive you could wish to find.

 

Heralds make a superb choice as a starter classic and this is one of the best that you could wish to find.  Ready to use, enjoy and win prizes we expect this remarkable car to find an appreciative new owner 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.

MGB GT – In stunning order

When MG switched over to unitary construction in 1962 the ‘B’ was born and gone were the decades of chassis mounted production. Three years after the ‘B’ roadster the GT was shown to the public and it came with the improved five bearing crank ‘B’ series engine. Over the next fifteen years more than 125k were sold and here at Milestones we have one of the very best examples first registered in Bristol January 1969.

The history file shows six owners before being taken on by the Saunders family in Southampton, the invoices confirm they carried out a full ‘no expense spared restoration’. The work was entrusted to MHC MacPherson Coachworks in Dorset and invoices state new chrome plus front and rear wings, repaint etc totalling £6k was completed in November 1988.

 

Fast forward to 2015 and a letter left in the file explains the next owner purchased the GT from Southampton, removing the car from a lock up where it had been stored since the late 80’s. Over the next two years this MG received new carpets, tailgate, brakes, fuel system including tank and carbs plus a re-spray, seat re-trim and wire wheel re-furb ect ect.

This GT enjoys the right visuals,

starting with a superb Old English White paint finish which contrasts with black leather seats featuring cream piping. Showing just 54k miles the engine performs perfectly with smooth clutch courtesy of recent slave and master cylinders plus a very precise overdrive. Under the bonnet is all about originality with sensible upgrades like the stainless-steel exhaust whilst the Moto-lita steering wheel presents a little glam to the standard dash. Many enthusiasts consider the MGB to be the best driving classic from the sixties and with parts in abundance plus a healthy club scene.

 

It is no surprise correct and honest ‘B’s are sought after. If your requirement is an MG that is ready to go, drives as it should and is going to turn heads throughout this summer, call and arrange a test drive.

Standard Park Lane Saloon – Utterly Charming

 

By the early 1920s Standard were offering saloon bodies - previously all cars had been tourers - based on mass-production principles using a wooden track along which cars were pushed by hand.  The Standard Motor Company was justifiably proud of the modern factory at Canley, boasting in its advertisements "It is a beautifully lighted and well-aired factory standing on the edge of a breezy common away from the city din and smoke”,

Soon the company had a share of the market comparable to the Austin Motor Company manufacturing over 10,000 cars in 1924. As the immediate post WW1 boom faded, many rival marques were discontinued. Cars became steadily larger and more elaborate as manufacturers sought to maintain sales. During the 1920s Standard named all the models after towns, not only near the factory such as Canley and Kenilworth but also further afield – Teignmouth, Falmouth and Exmouth.

Milestone Classics are genuinely delighted to offer our 1926 Standard Park Lane Saloon.   In outstanding condition, the Standard benefitted from a major restoration in the late nighties (just about everything was replaced or rebuilt at considerable expense) with very light use since.  The classic Edwardian combination of dark blue body/black running boards & wings, nickel bright work and artillery wheels is absolutely stunning.   The interior is in amazing condition with re-upholstery seats/headlining, new carpets and refurbished dashboard & instruments, all to a very high specification

As you would expect, there is a huge amount of paperwork with the car including buff log-book (the car is still wearing her original registration), pictures before/during/after restoration including letters from owner, handbooks, MOT’s etc.  The first owner & his family kept the car for over 60 years and she is also featured on the cover of ‘Cars & The Standard Motor Company’ book by Phil Homer. 

Cars of this quality with excellent provenance rarely come to market.  The Standard would grace any collection and will make an excellent candidate for film, TV, promotional work – a hugely interesting hobby that would generate income and lots of interesting experiences……

We strongly recommend a viewing and test drive (note middle pedal = accelerator) in order to fully appreciate this remarkable car.  The expression “you don’t own these cars, we are simply custodians who use, enjoy and then pass onto the next lucky keeper” could have been written with the Standard in mind.
