1974 BOND BUG 700ES
Estimated Value : £4,000 – £5,000
This very nice and well known in “Bug Circles” 700ES underwent full restoration in the early 2000s during which is was upgraded to a 750cc. Having in its life twice won “Best Bond Bug in Britain”, had a celebrity owner and has featured on the cover of magazines.
Now having just had some re-commissioning work carried out including a new carburettor and will have a new MOT it is ready once more for a new owner.
1979 PONTIAC TRANS-AM
Estimated Value: TBA
This superb Pontiac has been totally restored from bare metal. All new floors, new trunks and inner wings taking well over a year to complete (pictorial evidence of work done available). Not just the metal work was replaced also all new glass, new lights, totally rewired, new mouldings, a completely retrimmed including door cards and carpet.The original 400 cu 6.6-litre engine and transmission were refreshed and retained. Originally the car was gold with beige velour interior but the vendor had always wanted a red with a black interior car, not being able to find a good enough car in red he built himself this one. Described as “truly driving as good as new and one of the best on the market today”.
1968 WOLSELEY HORNET
Estimated Value: £3,000 – £5,000
This delightful Wolseley Hornet has only 72k on the clock and just two owners from new, the last one for the past 7 years, during which he has restored the car mechanically. The brakes and clutch have been renewed including all the cylinders, the cylinder head was restored and refitted with all new gaskets and now it drives very well.
Bodywork has been resprayed at some point and while very presentable, would benefit from a good cut and polish, while the interior was good enough to leave original so has that nice patina of age still.
During all this work he kept a diary plus all the bills for parts etc, a labour of love not for profit but unfortunately, a sudden failing of site has meant that he now has to sell.
Coming with its original bill of sale and owners hand book plus a valid MOT until next July he really wants this rare little car to go to a good home and be looked after how he has, we are sure it will.
1957 FORD PREFECT 100E
Estimated Value : £2,500 – £3,500
A nice solid running and driving example of this popular Ford. Offered here as a useable car that would benefit from cosmetic TLC throughout.
