 Classics from Terence Morley
 1952 Bentley MKVI 4 1/2 Litre
Finished in garnet over dusk grey with tan leather interior trim. Retaining all of its original fitments such as the HMV Vale radio, sunroof and rear wing spats. This is the most desirable specification of a standard steel MKVI Bentley available. Having the 4 1/2 litre engine with the full flow oil system plus twin pipe exhaust unit the other nice feature of a late MKVI is the twin side scuttle mounted air vents that are essential for keeping the interior of the car cool when driving on hot summer days or continental journeys. This motor car is in very good order throughout with a clean underside, good paint and chrome work. It has been with its current owner for fourteen years and is only being sold to finance a MKVI special project. This lovely car is well worth viewing.   £28,750.

1966 PLYMOUTH SATELLITE HEMI 426 - Epping Motor Company


Viewing of vehicles is by appointment only.

If you would like to make an appointment to view any vehicle please call or email.

Tel: 01277 365415 Fax: 01277 365436 

Chassis Number RP23H61290202. 

Very rare Pillarless 2 door Hardtop finished in her original colour scheme of ZZ1 Citron Gold Metallic ( a delightful period Light Metallic Green ) with matching correct Citron Gold premium interior with vinyl bucket seats and centre console ( so far 1 of only 3 documented in this colour scheme by Galen Govier ). This is a genuine original Hemi car, winner of the 2014 European Mopar Nationals ‘Best of Show’ trophy. Introduced in 1965 as the top of the range model of Plymouth's B-series mid-size Belvedere line-up, the Satellite became available with Chrysler's legendary 'Hemi' 426ci (7.0-litre) V8 engine as an option for 1966. Adding around $1,000 to the list price, this 'Street Hemi' engine was quoted as producing 425bhp at 5,000rpm and 490lb/ft of torque at 4,000 revs, figures generally accepted as being conservative. The factory quoted performance figures were 5.3 seconds for the 0-60mph sprint and 13.8 seconds for the standing quarter-mile. When specified, the Hemi was complemented by a host of performance enhancing extras including heavy-duty suspension and Police-grade 11" drum brakes. Only 848 Satellite Hemi models were manufactured in 1966, 534 of which were equipped with the optional automatic three-speed transmission. This is an exceptionally rare car, even in America. The car offered here is close to concours condition throughout having received a 1000 plus hour restoration reputedly costing over £ 75000 ( documentation showing this is in the history folder ). This car's impressive specification includes power assisted steering, power assisted ventilated front disc brakes and a '727' three-speed automatic transmission, rare 9 ¾ Dana 60 3:55 rear axle, Hemi heavy duty suspension, heavy duty 37 amp alternator and heavy duty 70 amp battery. This Satellite has been fully restored with a mix of original parts from this actual car, NOS parts and some reproduction parts. Everything is period-correct right down to the beautiful optional French-polished Mahogany sports steering wheel, new BF Goodrich Red Line radial tyres and original 14” spinner hub caps. Not surprisingly, the bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, engine and transmission are all fully rebuilt and in excellent order. This Satellite Hemi has been in the UK since 1975 and is possibly the only example in Europe and almost certainly the best. There are probably only a handful of Hemi cars in the UK and this one comes complete with a large history file including a 4 page de-coding letter from Galen Govier ( the World renowned Mopar Guru ) and the very rare original factory broadcast sheet ( build sheet ) and fender tag detailing all of the factory fitted options and delete options. Huge investment potential, just watch the value double in the next 10 years.

1970 RANGE ROVER (Chassis No 26) - Honychurch Classic Automobiles

1970 RANGE ROVER (Chassis No 26)

Extremely Important early Press launch Range Rover Chassis Number 26.

This is the very first of the Press Cars built for the launch of the Range Rover in 1970.  Chassis number 26 is actually the first ever production Range Rover manufactured, and although retaining many pre production features such as the super rare aluminium bonnet, it is built to production standard.   
Registered on the 27th May 1970 as the first of the 20 Press cars, it is unclear whether it was therefore the first car registered as a Range Rover. The previous 25 were registered as Velars and were used for engineering development. We have restored 231H over an extended period, taking our time to find the correct parts to rebuild this highly important vehicle to as correct a specification as is possible.   
We believe NXC231H to now be one of the best Range Rover Classics in existence. We were lucky enough to source new front seats, pairing this with the near perfect rear seat is what sets this 231 apart from  other restorations which fail to have the correct interior trim.  
The car has just been the subject of several specialist magazine articles which are being published in July 2014 and has covered road test mileage only. This is a serious collector car and one which can only increase in value as the Range Rover brand continues to grow Globally.   It is proving to be almost impossible to rebuild early Range Rovers to this sort of accuracy as correct parts are now almost impossible to source.  

We are happy to arrange worldwide shipping.

Located in the beautiful Kentish Countryside,  Honychurch Classic Automobiles has a purpose built workshop for restoration of their own vehicles as well undertaking work for customers.  A 60 minute train journey from Charing Cross ,  we are also close to Headcorn Aerodrome and can accomodate helicopter arrivals by prior arrangement.

Volkswagen began work on the Scirocco during the early 1970s as the replacement for the aging Karmann Ghia coupe, and designated it the Typ 53 internally. The platform of the Golf was used to underpin the new Scirocco, although almost every part of the car was re-engineered in favour of a sportier drive, and the model's all-new styling, penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro, was sleeker and sportier than that of the Golf.

Launched six months before the Golf, in order to resolve any teething troubles before production of the high volume hatchback started, the Scirocco went on sale in Europe in 1974 and in the UK in 1975. The first incarnations of the Sciroccos were driven by the new VW/Audi 1471cc overhead camshaft engine coupled with an all-synchromesh 4 speed gearbox or 3 speed automatic driving the front wheels and fuelled by a carburetor. For October 1975, the engine capacity had been increased to 1588cc (the same unit used in the Golf Gti) and for aerodynamic reasons the twin windscreen wipers were replaced with a distinctive single arm that swept the entire screen. This would be a Scirocco feature and be carried over into the early versions of the Mk2.

In October 1976, for the 1977 model year, the TS was replaced by the GLS. The GLS was mechanically identical but featured interior and trim revisions of vinyl and cord upholstery (replacing the tartan trim of the TS), part carpeted door cards, laminated windscreen, tinted windows, standard rear wash/wipe and revised control stalks, steering wheel and ventilation system. Externally the GLS carried a plastic front spoiler.

In May 1975 Safer Motoring Magazine road tested the new Scirocco with the infamous Peter Noad commenting, "the Scirocco is at its best on faster corners, open roundabouts, and suchlike, where it is one of the safest cars on the road." He also added, "the grip in the wet is particularly outstanding and this, coupled to almost perfect balance and excellent steering feel makes this VW a real joy to drive."

Jeremy Clarkson initially thought he wanted a Golf GTI. But having 'discovered' the Scirocco he decided that was this VW for him, buying one upon his arrival in London and covering 54,000 happy miles in it in a single year. Perhaps it was the Scirocco's go kart like handling that endeared it to him so much.

This particular example is extremely rare as VW only manufactured the chrome bumpered 1588cc GLS for one year. The Scirocco was face lifted in 1978 where the stunning chrome bumpers were replaced with a plastic wrap around style. The front wings were revised, again to incorporate a wraparound front indicator. According to the DVLA only 9 other chrome bumper GLS's remain.

1974 BMW 1602 - Classic and Sportscar Centre, Malton

1974 BMW  1602
  This truly outstanding BMW 1602 is presented in show standard condition. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a 1970’s BMW that has been subject of a nut and bolt rebuild with no expense spared. This is without doubt the very best 1970’s BMW we have ever seen and restoring a similar car to this standard would cost considerably more than our asking price. The car is a show piece and is first class in every respect.
The body is truly outstanding with perfect straight panels and beautiful paintwork. The car was taken back to a bare shell and was fully rebuilt with photographic records. The engine bay has been detailed to the highest standard and the unit rebuilt and detailed prior to re-fit. Photographs of the engine removed and in stages of rebuild work are also in the history file. The car has been thoroughly restored mechanically and the interior smartly finished with a retro feel to it. The underside is as new, the boot area perfect and the car is wonderful to drive in every respect. Handling, braking, performance are all fabulous and the BMW is great fun.
We first sold this car last year to a customer in Cheshire; we had only had the car a few days before selling it. The car also featured in a ‘Joe Browns' marketing campaign whilst with us. The BMW has covered several hundred miles and been used for shows and weekend use. The car has only been driven in good weather and comes back to us in exactly the same condition. The BMW is now registered for historic tax and the car will be sold with a full 12 months MOT and fresh service.

The Tipo 8CM Maserati was one of the brand’s first Grand Prix racing car designs. Fitted with a particularly strong power unit, the straight-eight engine achieves 2992 cubic capacity, which is deemed all the more impressive in such a light and slender car. Maserati rather stole the march on its competitor, Alfa Romeo, in 1934 when it took the progressive decision to sell its monoposto Grand Prix cars to private owners.
This example is one such car, being one of a pair of cars ordered in January of 1934 and purchased by Mme Nelly Braillard of Paris to be driven by Benoit Falchetto during that year’s race season and beyond. Falchetto enjoyed some notable successes with the car, particularly in the Monthléry French Grand Prix (September 1934) where he brought it home in first position after averaging some 87mph according to leading Maserati scribe, Anthony Pritchard, in his book on the marque, Maserati, A History. Other notable results include sixth place at the Coppa Di Piemonte race in October of that year and fourth place at Pau in February 1935.
Later in 1935 the car was sold to Gigi Soffietti of Turin, who piloted it for the remainder of the racing season and through 1936 until 1937. His best result was fourth position in Tripoli in May 1935. Sueria Sabauda ran the car in the 1937 and 1938 Grand Prix seasons for driver, Edoardo Teagno. The 8CM performed well in Teagno’s hands, achieving fifth place in the Coppa Edda Ciano in September 1937 and fifth again at Albi in July 1938. 
The car changed owners again in 1965 when it passed between Pozzoli and Jones in Paris. During this period the car (which had been significantly modified up to this point) was dismantled with a view to restoring it to original condition, meaning that the altered non-Maserati parts, such as a replacement body, were scrapped. In 1973 the car was purchased by Joel Finn of the USA, although it was kept in the UK during his tenure. The car had a brief stay with a Mr B Sutherland before passing into the hands of well-known marque specialist Sean Danaher. The Danahers undertook a painstaking and full restoration of this superb car, which was finished ready for its second life of competition in 2000.
As part of the restoration the following original parts were obtained by the Danahers and fitted to the car: the original steering box from 3009, the steering box bracket from chassis 3012 and the original rear axle from 3009. All parts numbered ‘3009’ by the Maserati factory survive on the engine, gearbox, rear axle and chassis.
In the capable hands of the Danahers, this car has latterly, amongst other highlights, competed at three Goodwood Revival meetings, won the Maserati Club’s prestigious Fangio Trophy, won its class at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and won ‘Driver of the Day’ at the Nürburgring Oldtimer Grand Prix in August 2014. The car has been a regular and successful stalwart of HGPCA and VSCC races, and has competed with the Midland Automobile Club at Shelsley Walsh (UK), taken part in the Vernasca Silver Flag Historic Hillclimb (Italy) and the Vintage Revival Montlhéry (France).
The car has current invitations to attend the 73rd Members’ Meeting at Goodwood on 21/22 March 2015 and the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power on 12-14 June. It is supplied with full FIA papers, while HTP papers are currently being processed.
The following additional parts will be supplied with the car: front brake drums, front brake back plates and rear brake drums. A crank, conrods and a block are all available if required by the purchaser. This car represents an opportunity to own a tried and tested Maserati Grand Prix car with current form and a significant and well-documented history.
