FOR SALE - 1976 Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Veloce
• UK righthand drive
• Huge history file
• Fabulous condition
We are delighted to offer this UK supplied righthand drive Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Veloce, supplied new by Anca Garage, Worthing. Manufactured in late 1976 and first registered in the UK on 4th January 1977, this lovely Spider is offered in its original colour of Verde Inglese with black interior. What is remarkable about this Alfa Romeo is not only its condition but its huge history file that documents all works and invoices since 1980.
This UK car has been subject to an older restoration and presents beautifully today, nicely patinated whilst being straight and level. The coachwork is in excellent order and is complimented with five new alloy Campagnolo wheels. The excellent original black interior is of particular note, being in incredible condition given its age. On inspecting the undersides, everything is in good order with the added benefit from a recent refresh of the wax protection.
Mechanically, the car starts easily and is a delight on the road having been subject to recent suspension works that include four new Koni Classic shock absorbers, springs and trailing arms; the car is shockingly quick; a new exhaust system has also been added. The mohair hood is excellent and is easily erected and dropped into the open position. The brakes are also excellent having recently been serviced.
This Spider is accompanied with the afore mentioned history file and includes a UK V5C registration document, original handbook, invoices and maintenance guides. This file is one of the most comprehensive history files I have seen.
It is rare to find an original UK car with only two recorded keepers, in this condition and with a wonderful colour combination.
To discuss this delightful Alfa Romeo and arrange a viewing, please call.
FOR SALE - 1976 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1600 Super
• A genuine RHD 1600 Super
• Recent specialist engine rebuild
• Five new TZ/TI Super wheels and tyres
We are delighted to offer this wonderful example of the marque. According to the Alfa Romeo Archive, this Giulia Super was manufactured on 16th October 1972 and finished in the colours of Pine Green with contrasting Wild Boar Tex (tan) interior, a combination that it still retains to this day.
This example was originally supplied to Cyprus and the original service book shows that the car was sold new by the Cypriot Alfa Romeo dealer D. J. Demades and Sons of Nicosia on 15th November 1972. The two service books show regular maintenance was carried out up until October 1982. We expect that this was of course not the last time the car was maintained. This Giulia was imported from Cyprus in 2013 and subsequently first registered in the UK on 13th May 2013.
On inspection, the coachwork presents very well with only the odd minor marks in line with a car of its age. The Verde Pino paintwork certainly enhances its looks whilst the undersides are in very fine condition and with the advantage of a wax protection. Five recent TZ/TI Super wheels and tyres have been fitted.
Mechanically, this example has had works in recent years that include, and by no means exhaustive, the brakes, uprated suspension and an engine rebuild by Autolusso, Bournemouth. At that time, the engine was fitted with a 1750cc cylinder head, however, an original and correct head was sourced, rebuilt, and fitted in 2021. During those works, the carburettors were also overhauled with these works being carried out by RPE (Riverside Performance Engineering), Chessington. The suspension has been mildly enhanced to make this a comfortable and reassuring ride. The front anti -roll bar has been uprated and a full set of Bilstein shock absorbers fitted. Various joints, suspension arms and bushes were also replaced at this time. The gearbox is also a delight and operates without any baulking on changing up or down through the gears.
The interior trim presents very well and those wonderful ‘proper’ instruments keeping the driver well informed. Oh yes, the odometer cable has been replaced and now records your speed with a smooth steady needle. There is a small area of cracks on the dashboard but that does not detract from the overall experience.
This lovely example comes with a file that includes a UK V5C registration document, old MoT test certificates, invoices, original service books and ac workshop manual.
This is one of the most original and correct examples that we have ever seen on a Super, and it drives as well as it looks.
FOR SALE - 1958 Jaguar Mk.1 Saloon
• Matching numbers confirmed by Jaguar Heritage Certificate
• UK supplied righthand drive
• Four inertia seat belts
• Colour coded wire wheels
• Five new Blockley tyres
• Disc brakes on all four corners
• Original tool kit
We are delighted to offer this wonderful example of the early Jaguar 3.4 litre Saloon. According to the Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, WVC 598 was manufactured on 28th November 1958 and first registered in the UK on 8th December 1958.
Today, WVC is presented its original and fabulous colour combination of Sherwood Green coachwork with a contrasting tan leather interior. To further compliment the package, the wire wheels are colour coded to the coachwork and a set of small rim rear wheel arch spats have been added to enhance the purposeful look and being more practical if a wheel change is required (no need to remove the wheel spats). The coachwork presents very well with the odd very small age-related marks. The underside is excellent and looks factory fresh, in fact, this is one of the best of its kind underneath that we have seen.
Open the doors and you are greeted with that wonderful old car leather and wood smell. The tan leather itself is in good order and with a lovely patina. The woodwork is also in good order and in are opinion, finished just right as we believe that an over glossy, modern plastic finish, does not look correct and would not have been a finish from the factory. For safety and comfort, a set of four inertia seat belts have been fitted, the rears being particularly discreet. This work was carried out by the renown experts, Quickfit Safety Belt Services in North London.
Mechanically, this example is excellent. The 3.4 litre engine starts on the button and soon settles to a smooth idle. The disc brakes on all four corners are as new, having been replaced, and pull this Jaguar up very sharply; this certainly gives the driver confidence whilst pushing on. One thing that is surprising, is how you can control gear changes to change up or down with use of the throttle and intermediate speed-hold and is especially fun on twisty roads making this example not only a good looker but with a comfortable and enjoyable driving experience too. There is also the added benefit of a stainless steel exhaust system which makes this Jaguar sound fantastic whilst not being intrusive.
WVC comes with a history file that includes its UK V5C registration document, the aforementioned Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, old MoT test certificates, invoices and an original Jaguar Operating, Maintenance and Service Handbook.
A new spare wire wheel has been supplied by MWS as the spare was steel and in effect, useless. The new Blockley tyres have transformed the car. The steering is now light and the road noise significantly reduced. It is a joy to drive. Please note, the photographs display this Jaguar with its old tyres, new images will follow soon.
So, there it is, a fabulous looking Jaguar with bucket loads of charm, comfort and performance. We’ve been using it a lot as it is such a pleasure and with those seat belts, your friends are happy to travel with you; all very sociable. This Jaguar really must be viewed and, we believe, will surprise you with its charm, condition and performance.
