From Friday, June 24th to Sunday, June 26th, we will be at the R-R.E.C. Annual Rally, at Burghley House, Stamford, Lincolnshire. We will have our usual selection of cars for sale, as well as information, photos, etc, relating to all of our stock, including those 'back at base'. For the whole of the time we are there, we can be reached on 07717 123123 (Ray) or 07742 252526 (Ian). Come and say hello!
This website replaces our original, which had served us well for fifteen years, but which was getting to be out of date in various ways. We have now upgraded to this one, which brings certain facilities up to date. In particular, we hope you will like the much improved handling of pictures, which can now be viewed far more easily, and in greater clarity. By clicking on 'Click here for more photos' within an individual car page, you will be taken to a gallery of images, each of which can be enlarged greatly.
We generally carry a stock of about 40 Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars, ranging in date from the 1920's to the 1960's, sometimes later, and from time to time, other makes as well. Conditions vary from project cars for total restoration, to excellent, ready to go. So if you are looking for a vintage Rolls-Royce or Bentley, or perhaps something later or different, you have come to the right place!
We are always interested in acquiring cars of the type that we sell. If you know of a Rolls-Royce or Bentley for sale, anywhere in the World, particularly an early model, please let us know. Cars bought outright, including collections, or we are happy to take them on a commission sale basis, or pay you a finders fee if you put us in touch with a car or cars which we later purchase.
We are located in characterful, 19th century buildings, constructed of slate and stone, once part of the Penrhyn Quarry empire.
We are open 9 to 5 Monday to Friday, 9 to 4 Saturday, and other times by arrangement.
Find Out More About How We Got Started
We started with a single car (all we could afford) which we sold quickly, and before we knew it we had 4 or 5 on our hands! This was alongside another business that we were involved in at the time. In the Spring of 1988 we gave up the other business, (exhaust systems), rented part of the premises that we still operate from now, and went full time.

A Himalayan Adventure
One of our directors, Ian Johnstone - whom many of you will know - and his wife Ros, departed on an adventure organised by http://www.roarr.co.uk/ on March 11th, driving a 1953 Bentley R Type 3,000 miles across the Himalayas, beginning in Islamabad, and ending in Calcutta. The trip was very successful, lots of fun, and a warm welcome was received wherever they went.
