126-2002-Jaguar XJ8 3.2-No reserve

Re-imported from Japan, this immaculate white X308 XJ has covered only 32,000 miles and if probably one of the best X308s to survive. Lovely.

129-1983-Renault 5TX Convertible-£9,000-£12,000

With just 10,400 authenticated mils under its wheels, this stunning Rover P5B was the first Rovers to carry the GM designed 3.5 litre alloy block V8 that went on to power hundreds of thousands of Range Rovers and Discoverys.

Jaguar XK8 Convertible 1997 Historics

150-1997-Jaguar XK8 Convertible-No reserve

Sitting on nice, fat ‘comfort’ tyres, this XK8 has done a modest 63,000 miles and with a pair of back seats looks like a great way for a family to enjoy the rest of our glorious summer.

172-1954-Chevrolet Corvette-£68,000-£74,000

This is the original C1 Corvette with 6-cylinder Blueflame ohv engine, twin carbs and Powerglide transmission. Not the kind of Corvette you’ll see on the drag-strip, but a lot better investment.

174-1969-Morris Mini Cooper S Mk. II-£19,000-£27,000

Ford Sierra RS Cosworth 1987 Historics

177-1987-Ford Sierra RS Cosworth -£28,000-£36,000

While fast Fords are big as the moment, Sierra RS Cosworths always have been and, though this one has done 160,000 miles, it presents beautifully and has a full local history, serviced by Byfleet Ford every year.

178-1972-Morris Mini 850-No reserve

179-1998-BMW 750 IL-No reserve

180-1991-Rover Mini Mk. II by Radford -£10,000- £14,000

Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider 1957 Historics

191-1957-Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider-£43,000-£47,000

The original Alfa Giulietta was only ever built independently to use Alfa Romeo powertrains while the factory geared up to build the Giulia saloon. The gorgeous Giulietta Spider came 3 years later and infamously starred (briefly) in the movie ‘The Day of the Jackal’. This one has just 52,000 miles recorded.

192-1977-Ferrari 208 GT4 Dino -£30,000-£36,000

193-1966-Ford Lotus Cortina-£37,000-£43,000

194-1966-Realm Jaguar D-Type-£50,000-£60,000

Jensen 541 Deluxe 1958 Historics

195-1958-Jensen 541-£38,000-£44,000

Now very rare, the uniquely beautiful Jensen 541 is powered by a 4.0 litre Austin lorry engine with triple SU carbs. This is probably the finest example in existence and a tenth of the price of an equivalent Aston Martin.

196-1972-Jaguar E-Type Series III -£35,000-£40,000

197-1966-Mercedes-Benz 230 SL -£58,000-£64,000

200-1961-Jaguar E-Type Roadster-£125,000-£150,000

Ferrari 458 Italia 2012 Historics

201-2013-Ferrari 458 -£105,000-£125,000

Not a ‘Speciale’ or a Spider, just a plain, but very low (6,000) mileage 458 Italia that is now on the ascent and must be one of the first Ferraris never to dip below £100,000.

202-1965-Jaguar E-Type Series I Coupé-£145,000-£169,000

Audi RS2 Avant 1982 Side Historics

203-1995-Audi RS2-£24,000-£32,000

The stuff of legends, the RS2 was the next hot Audi after the original quattro turbo. The 315HP engine gets it to 60 in 4.8 second and on to 162mph, though this one has done 154,000 miles so not smart to try that often.

204-1998-Ferrari 550 Maranello-£60,000-£70,000

205-1981-Renault 5-Turbo Type I-£85,000-100,000

210-1991-Aston Martin Virage-No reserve

211-1995-Rover Mini Cooper 1.3Litre-No reserve

Ford Pick -up Hot Rod 1940 Historics

212-1940-Ford pick-up-£45,000-£50,000

As seen in Historics previous sale where it didn’t sell, this ‘odd-rod’ 1940 pick-up has a 260 cubic inch (4.2 litre) flathead Mercury V8 under the hood with Edelbrock heads and twin Strombergs. Oddball, but interesting.

213-1965-Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster 4.2 Litre-£56,000-£62,000

228-1959-Jaguar XK150-£78,000-£88,000

229-1996-Porsche 911 Targa-£30,000-£35,000

Bentley Arnage T 2004 Historics

230-2004-Bentley Arnage T-£25,000-£30,000

Starting to come into demand, an older Arnage T did very well in Historics May sale, so expect this to get closer to £30k than the low estimate

231-1962-Mercedes-Benz 190 SL Roadster-£85,000-£93,000

Mini Moke 1965 Historics

241-1965-Mini Moke-£13,000-£16,000

Mokes always bring back memories of summer in 1970 when my best mate had one that we went everywhere in. Huge fun. Just remember not to fall out.

242-1952-MG TD-£18,000-£22,000

Alfa Romeo Spider 2.0 1999 Historics the

260-1999-Alfa Romeo Spider 2.0 Twin Spark-No reserve

A budding classic with good looks and the all-important electric top. These were never very quick, sank back to around £2,000 but are now picking up as buyers seize the potential for fun in the sun.

Toyota FJ45 Pick -up 1984 Historics

267-1983-Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45 -£14,000-£18,000

I think we’ve seen this before. I tried to get Toyota interested for the heritage fleet. Very big in the USA, everlasting 6-cylinder petrol engine and the FJ45 pick-up makes a better surfer’s truck than the standard FJ40

268-1982-Land Rover Series III-£7,000-£12,000

269-1989-Jaguar XJS Convertible -£12,000-£18,000

Ford Thunderbird 2002 F34 Historics

275-2002-Ford Thunderbird-£11,000-£15,000

Same underneath as the Jaguar S-Type V8 and contemporary Lincoln, this was a nice recreation of the original 1955-1957 T-Bird, currently more reliable and a lot less money. A ’57 is in the Historics sale for comparison.

276-1973-Triumph Stag-£10,000-£15,000
