The S-Type, which covered both the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud and Bentley S Series were first built in 1959 to 1959. With a six cylinder 4887cc engine they were known as the Silver Cloud I or SI. These were then replaced by the SII and Cloud II with the V8 6230cc engine with three speed automatic gearbox, giving a good top speed of 116mph. The last of the series the Silver Cloud III or Bentley SIII, varied only in the fact these had twin headlights, opposed to the single headlights of the previous models. Really everything was down personal choice with the last two models – Rolls or Bentley radiators and badging, or single and twin headlights.

These were the last cars to have a separate chassis and body, which was known as the Standard Steel saloon. Due to this there were a number of companies such as, Mulliner Park Ward and James Young, building on the chassis, the most well known being the Continental, Flying Spur and Chinese Eye versions.

1936 Alvis Speed 20 Lancefield Saloon

SOLD

A direct development from the Silver and Created Eagle models with the first six cylinders Alvis engines of the early thirties. In 1932 the first Speed 20 SA with the Silver Eagle engine was produced in an agreement between Alvis and Charles Follett Ltd, the dealer who wanted more sporting and attractive coachwork designs.

The SC and SD models came along in 1935, with the 2511cc engine enlarged to 2762cc and 87bhp. The SD model had a wider bulkhead and flatter petrol tank.

CNN 277 was one of the first batch of nine SD’s produced, with Lancefield’s "extending boot" body, of beautifully proportioned design. On the coachbuilders, Lancefield Ltd., stand at the 1935 Earls Court Motor Show, the car was then sold in 1936, to George Hoybooth, better know by his stage name of "George Formby" . In the early eighties the car was owned by Sir Michael Leighton of Loton Park (site of the VSCC hill climb) who spent much on the car, including changing the brown and beige two tone paintwork to black.

I purchased the car at auction in 2005, the previous owner having owned the car for 13 years. Although it seemed mechanically fine, the rear of the ash frame was beginning to rot, and the aluminium body was cracking at the corners of the boot and sun roof. The interior was quite tatty, the leather being original, but with a number of holes and rips.

Over the last two years, we’ve stripped the body back to bear metal, and repainted in a dark blue. The interior re-upholstered in grey, and the woodwork re varnished.

It will be ready for hire, after a few mechanical tunings, in the Kent and Sussex areas only, from the beginning of April 2009. Heavy steering in slow manoeuvres, it is a fairly easy car to drive, with an all-sychromesh gearbox, and the accelerator moved from the centre to the normal right hand position.

Jaguar XK 150S, 3.4 (OTS) 1957

SOLD

  • 3.4 litre engine
  • 2 door OTS (Open Two Seater)
  • 4 speed with manual overdrive
  • Chrome wire wheel
  • Reasonable boot space for 2
  • Old English White with dark maroon leather interior

Having purchased this car in early 2003, I managed to blow the engine. This has now been rebuilt, along with the uprating of the brakes. Has a racing clutch, and once on the open road it gives a glorious drive. N.b. The hood is a two person operation.

The well-known Jaguar XK range was first introduced in 1948 in the 120 guise, to be replaced by the 140 in 1954. By 1957 the first 150 was introduced, with a all new body panels, more simplistic, wrap round one piece screen, but giving more width, and cabin room.

There were three body types – the coupe, drop head coupe (DHC) and the roadster (OTS - open two seater). The OTS, like our’s, has the hood which folds away into the cabin, behind the seats, and the slightly cut away doors, giving a beautiful clean line to the car when the hood is down. Engines were either 3.4 or 3.8, and came in standard or "S" versions had straight-port heads and triple carbs . Our car has a 3.4S engine giving 250bhp.

Austin Healey 3000 MKIII Convertible 1965

SOLD

  • 4 speed manual with overdrive
  • 2 door, 2 seater
  • Racing green
  • Black leather interior

Added to the Classic Touring car hire fleet autumn 2002, this classic car was totally restored in 1992, with the engine again being rebuilt in 1998.

This classic car is easy to drive, with a nice gearbox, it's more fun on A and B roads rather than motorways, although it has an overdrive. The hood is relatively easy to raise and lower. The boot space is minimal, but there is some space behind the seats.

The first Big Healey was a sensation at its launch at the 1952 Earls Court Motor Show, with its 4 cylinder 2660 cc engine from the Austin Atlantic, and known as the 100/4. BMC took the car under its wing, and became the Austin Healey, with the bodies being produced by Jensen of West Bromwich, and the assembly carried out by MG factory.

By 1956 the first six cylinder engine was introduced, and by 1959 this was replaced by the 3000 series, which lasted through to 1968 with various improvements and changes, the final model being the MK III, similar to our car.

This 2912 cc engine pushed out 148bhp, and was capable of a top speed of 120mph. Also this model became more luxurious with its wind up windows, better instruments and walnut facia dash.
