Morgan Plus Four Competition

Morgan Plus Four Competition Left hand drive 1966 for sale

A Morgan Plus Four Competition for me is one of those cars that looked classic already when you bought it. A Google Search on “British sportscars from 1966” will show you that this Morgan Plus Four Competition looked old even when it was new. Perhaps that is why it gets so much attention today! While taking these pictures, I was driving htrough town and was amazed at how much attention this little sportscar was getting. If you are a British sportscar fan, you may have heard of the Morgan Super Sports.

The body is very similar to each other but the Super Sports was made in aluminium and the competition in steel. What is special for the competition model is that it came with Derrington exhaust headers and Armstrong Selectaride shock absorbers. The engine was the Triumph 2.2l with two carburettors. Apparently between 1965 and 1967 only 42 of these cars were built.

Mercedes 300SE Cabriolet

Mercedes 300SE Cabriolet W112 from 1965

The Mercedes 300SE W112 was with six cylinder engines and air suspension. The model range was produced between 1961-1967. It was available in four door sedan, coupe and convertible.

Exterior: As you can see in the pictures, this car has an older paint that is today showing many years of use. Scratches and chips are present but no signs of corrosion on the outer body. The big soft top is in good condition and the chrome details are good, even if there is some smaller dent. This car was sold new here in Sweden and many people preferred the American style headlights. The long sweeping lines are enhanced by the chrome trim running all the way on the side of the car. These were specific for the Mercedes W112 300SE model. However, they can often be found also on other Mercedes Coupes and convertibles such as 220SE, 250SE, 280SE and 280SE 3.5. The Mercedes 300SE [...]

Exterior: The Alfa Romeo Giulia or 105 series were produced from 1962 to 1978. The car in caffe latte colour we are looking at here today is from 1969. However, this particular Alfa Romeo Giulia is very special for the reason that it was sold new in Sweden and has today travelled just over 60,000km from new! Most of this Giulia 1600 Super is still in first paint and it still looks absolutely amazing for a 52-year-old car. The paint is excellent with only a few small paint chips and some small scratches that have been filled with paintbrush. As you can see, it is today rolling on a set of alu wheels with classic Alfa pattern. The Giulia 1600 Super is slightly lowered in the suspension. The original parts are along with the car, if original look is preferred.

The outside is such a perfect match to cinnamon wool interior. And, with so much [...]

Corvette C1 Convertible 1961

Corvette 1961 C1 Convertible for sale in Sweden. Read why you should buy it.
Corvette C1 1961 for sale

Exterior: I think regardless of what type of cars you like, everybody can agree that the Corvette C1 Convertible is a very beautiful car. And, the colour combination on this particular Corvette must be one of the best that was available from Chevrolet at the time. To then finish that off with a set of wide white wall tires feels like this must have been the American dream car in 1961. The paintwork from 2017 looks awesome. It has a very nice depth and shine, and the fiberglass body has no visible cracks. The chrome details are outstanding and all rubber is soft and in good condition. As you can see in the pictures, the Corvette C1 has a normal level ride height and very good panel fit.

I love the Jaguar E-types in pretty much any shape or form. Over the years all from Series 1 Roadsters to Jaguar E-type series 3 Coupes. And, at the moment I have also a series 2 E-type Roadster and this very nice 1 ½ Coupe or FHC from 1968. A Jaguar E-type that has the rear tail lights above the bumper, but does not have covered headlights upfront is a Series 1 ½.

Exterior: White is a very nice colour for the Jaguar E-type. It looks perhaps even longer and sleekier than in other colours. The Jaguar was repainted one time many years ago and it still looks very nice today. It does not appear to have had any body work done and still no rust is evident. All chrome details are also the original pieces and they are great.

Interior: For me, stepping in to a classic Jaguar is all about feeling that certain [...]

The Mercedes W111 often referred to as the fintail model. Starting with 190, 220, 230 and the 300 was the biggest model with air suspension and 160hp. The 230 was carburetted version and had the same hp as the 220SE (120). The 230 S was produced between 1965-1968 and more than 41,000 cars were produced. Still today it is so rare to see one.

Exterior: This car came from Italy so the body is very much rust free. However, there are some scratches and smaller dents to be seen. The chrome is very good, but also here some smaller dents can be seen. Most likely from keeping all those little Fiats away from the Mercedes body. The grey colour (DB 190) is very elegant for this big car and the clear glass makes the lighter grey interior very visible. Rolling on good tyres with a thin white stripe. The underneath looks nice and solid. No [...]

Jaguar E-type Coupe Series 1 1/2

Soon up for sale Jaguar E-type Coupe in white with black leather
Jaguar E-type Series 1 ½ Coupe

jaguar e-type for sale

I love Jaguar E-type in pretty much all shapes and forms. The early series 1 cars are the most beautiful with their aluminium panels in the interior. Covered headlights and the peppy 3.8l engine is to die for.

The series 2 cars now with much better seats and improved gearbox. The Jaguar E-type series 3 is very much different with a wider body, proper grill mesh and the silky smooth V12 engine. A car you travel far with comfort and style.

The Jaguar E-type that will soon be in stock is a car that was sold [...]

Alfa Romeo 1600 Duetto Spider

1966 Alfa Romeo 1600 Duetto Spider for sale

The Alfa Romeo Spider is the longest produced model in the world dating from 1966-1994. The model I am selling here has many names. Alfa Romeo 1600 Duetto is what we would call it in Scandinavia. In Italy, it would however be Ossi di Seppia. In America, it is most known as Alfa Romeo Roundtail Spider. The beautiful Pininfarina design has stood the test of time and I think it still looks amazing.

Exterior: The red paint has had a touch up over the years and still looks good. There is no rust or bubbles to be seen on the car but traces of use have accumulated here and there over the years. It is today a car to use and have fun with. The black soft top looks good and there is the original convertible cover.

Interior: The Alfa Romeo 1600 Duetto Spider has black leather on the seats and the rest of the [...]
