2002 FORD CROWN VICTORIA
Police Interceptor
Registration No:LJ51 RSR
Chassis No: 2FAFP71W42X125787
Engine No: 2G112AB12572946


In Tom Hardy's new film 'Havoc'
UK registered

For the 1998 model year, the Ford Motor Company restyled the Crown Victoria, eliminating the ‘aero’ look that the first-generation Crown Victoria had from 1992 to 1997, adopting the more conservative styling of the Mercury Grand Marquis. Both cars included restyled front and rear-end components. The 1998 police package P71 had a chrome grille, chrome door handle trim, chrome bumper strips, and a chrome-trimmed flat-black rear fascia with the ‘Crown Victoria’ badge. At this time, the car was still known as the ‘Crown Victoria P71’. In 1999, Ford introduced the ‘Crown Victoria Police Interceptor’ name, with a badge on the trunk lid replacing the 1998 ‘Crown Victoria’ badge. A chrome-trimmed gloss-black rear fascia, black door-handle trim, black bumper strips, and a gloss-black slatted grille were also introduced at this time. Finally, the new ‘Street Appearance Package’, intended to make the CVPI look like a standard (P73) model, including chrome trimming and badging, was introduced.

This 2002 Ford Crown Victoria was purchased in 2019 from the USA and imported to the UK, being registered in January 2020. The Ford was purchased by a specialist company that supply vehicles to film and television production companies. The car has been repainted and given the decals and lights to give the appearance of a State Police Interceptor and was used in the new action, thriller Netflix film ‘Havoc’ starring Tom Hardy who played Alfie Solomons in ‘Pecky Blinders’. ‘Havoc’ is due to be released later this year. This Ford Crown Victoria is supplied with a UK V5 registration document and is an opportunity to purchase what might become a piece of film memorabilia in the future.

1988 EVANTE CONVERTIBLE SERIES 1
Registration No: F129 YEG
Chassis No: 8803601
Engine No: 8803601
Estimate: £14,000 - £18,000




Renowned worldwide for its successful racing engines, the Spalding-based firm Vegantune diversified into car making in the early 1980s with the Lotus Elan-inspired Evante, a separate company - Evante Cars Ltd - being set up to handle its manufacture. Although Elan-like in appearance, the glass fibre-bodied Evante employed a stronger, tubular-steel spaceframe chassis rather than the Lotus’s backbone type and was powered by Vegantune’s own Ford-based VTA twin-cam engine. Producing 170bhp and 140lb/ft of torque from its 1.7 litres, this engine, with its belt-driven camshafts and accessible water pump, was reckoned much easier to maintain than the Lotus version. Only produced to individual customer orders, the Evante failed to weather the late 1980s recession. After only a limited number had been made, the operation was sold to a consortium of Spalding businessmen, who continued production of the Evante 140TC. In the autumn of 1992, Evante was sold to another specialist vehicle manufacturer – Newark-based Fleur De Lys Automobile Manufacturing Limited – which re-engineered the chassis to accept the 1.8 litre Ford Zetec 16 valve engine.

This rare example of this British sports car is presented in Metallic Blue with a blue leather interior, with an attractive Walnut dashboard. It was sent back to Vegantune main agent at 20,000 miles and was fully upgraded to Series II Sprint specification. This included new upgraded bearings and pistons, reworked big valve head and camshafts, twin 45mm twin-choke carburettors, new stainless steel exhaust and upgraded Spax adjustable coil-over shock absorbers. The car also benefits from a new hood and comes with its tonneau covers which are in good condition. Two history folders are accompanying the car with specification sheets, old MoTs and receipts for work carried out. The current vendor has fastidiously maintained this great little sportscar and she now has brand new carpets, an engine that runs very well and brakes that work efficiently. Powered by the lively and great sounding 1700cc Twin Cam engine which provides exciting performance with great handling to match. Marketed originally as the ‘Lotus eater’ it is easy to see why.

1959 JAGUAR Mk IX SALOON
Chassis No: P771603BW
Engine No: NC3159-8
Estimate: £19,000 - £24,000


The Jaguar Mk. IX was produced between 1959 and 1961 and replaced the previous Mk. VIII. Standard transmission was a four-speed manual system; options included overdrive, but most cars were built with a Borg-Warner three-speed automatic gearbox. Internally, an enlarged-bore 3.8 litre, 220bhp DOHC straight-six replaced the previous 3.4 litre unit with two SU carburettors were fitted. Four-wheel servo-assisted Dunlop disc brakes and recirculating ball power steering was now standard equipment. The torsion bar independent front suspension and leaf-sprung rear live axle were retained from the Mk. VIII. The body was generally similar to its predecessor, but the sunshine roof became a standard fitting for the UK market. The interior was in the same luxurious mode with extensive use of leather, walnut wood trim and deep pile carpet. The Mk. IX's power and good brakes for a vehicle of that era, together with its undoubtedly impressive aesthetic appearance, makes it quite a common choice for the classic car market.

This early Jaguar Mk. IX Saloon has had three owners from new, the current owner purchased it in 2002. The first owner, Miss N B Gray, was a senior Police officer base in Birmingham who had a chauffeur drive her around. Supplied in June 1959 it has the Borg-Warner automatic gearbox fitted which allowed a front bench seat to be fitted. This matching numbers car was professionally restored in 1997 to the original specification of Indigo Blue over light blue with light blue leather interior and comes with the correct, complete toolkits fitted in both front doors. It is supplied with a V5C registration document, a heritage certificate, the original ‘first series’ handbook and two large files the first containing old registration documents, MoT’s and invoices. The second, a detailed history by the current owner while in his ownership with invoices and notes of works carried out. This Mk. IX emphasises Sir Williams Lyon’s theme of ‘Grace, Space and Pace’ with its flowing lines and extensive amount of chrome.
