​Morris Minor 1000.  1098cc  1971
This is a very driveable original car in good condition.
The current owner (my brother) has owned it for ten years and maintained it well.
I've used it a few times, specifically to travel to Goodwood Revival, and enjoyed driving.
The hood is in good condition and it has its original radio.
Lotus XI S2 Replica
This is an almost new car built in 2003 and has covered about 500 miles from new.  The engine is a 1020cc converted climax fire pump built by Oselli.  I haven't seen the car but by all accounts it is built to a very high and exacting standard and ready to go.  The car is available for a test drive in Suffolk.

FWBp 1460 Firepump.

This is as near as you can get to an FWB car engine. The cylinder head, valves etc are exactly the same as a car, including a car dynamo, finned pulley and mountings. It has drop forged steel crank and conrods and an FWB block with 3 inch (76.2mm) liners. Its electric start.
​Lotus XI S1 Le Mans. Restoration project.
This is the ex Len Bastrup/Briggs Cunningham car and an extremely important piece of Lotus history.
For full early history go to: http://lotuseleven.org/DarkAges2/chassis_156.htm
Please go to the link above to fully appreciate how important this car is.
The care is currently completely dismantled but apart from some body work is complete.  It comes with its original chassis and a new chassis.
It has one of the first four FWB engines which was used in XI, 9 EHX racing at Le Mans in 1956, very rare.
It retains the MK9 type diff with limited slip diff, as fitted from new.
The car originally had twin fuel tanks, and two new ones come with the car. 
This is probably the only Lotus XI that could be legally raced with an FWB 1460cc Coventry Climax and a limited slip diff.

​Lotus MK6.  1172cc side valve with Aquaplane head.
This is a well known very original car with a good history. The current owner has looked after this car well over the last few years and it is on the button and ready to go.          Very good condition.
