Jaguar XJ220 For Sale

Just 271 Jaguar XJ220s were produced, and although production figures for the 200+ mph British supercar are known, production figures for this gold plated example are not…

goodshoutmedia-maisto-jaguar-xj220-gold-plated-gwilo-2.jpg

The story goes that Gwilo, a gold plating company, collaborated with Maisto to produce a unique gold plated range of 1:18 scale diecast vehicles. However, midway through the job, money troubles led to their collapse. It’s not clear whether Gwilo were paid for the work.

Information is difficult to come across on the actual amount that Gwilo produced, but they do pop up for sale now and then.

The Maisto 1:18 scale Jaguar XJ220 is already excellent, and the addition of the gold plating makes this a lovely collectible. Presentation is superb. The car sits on a wooden plinth and has it’s own certificate of registration. A high quality dark green and gold presentation box completes the luxury package.

Overall, this is a superbly executed diecast, rare, unusual, and a must for your collection.

They sell for between £130 and £180

(We have one for sale – contact us for details)

– Missing stereo
– Drivers and passenger seats showing signs of wear, but remarkably good otherwise

Bargain Bavarian Barge – BMW E34 for sale

We’ve developed a real affection for BMWs this year, and this is the 6th one so far in 2015 (Z3 2.8, E30 in red, E30 in green, Z3 1.9, E46 320d, E34).

This one is a real beaut. It’s factory fresh… And do you know what?

We think it might be the best E34 520i in the country.

Another awesome BMW E30 Convertible for sale

You may recall back in summer 2015 we sold a red BMW E30 Convertible.

Well, we got the bug for these cool little cars, so here’s another one:

INTERIOR

This car came to me as a project. The roof had long since expired, and in three nights of terrible rain the roof gave way completely, leaving me with swimming pools in the front and rear footwells.

Thankfully the seats are leather and I’d been treating them with a high quality balsam so they were unaffected!

When I removed the seats to assess the rain damage, it became obvious that the carpet was simply too waterlogged to salvage. I removed all of the interior carpet to assess, and was both relieved and surprised to find NO ROT OR RUST beneath it. This means that the roof leak was not a regular occurrence! After drying out all of the footwells, I cleaned them up then treated the paint with black, anti-rust metal paint before having a professional trimmer (Tim the trim) re-fit new carpet to the car. With a fresh set of tailored mats, the inside was complete.

EXTERIOR

A new roof was ordered from the USA, which Tim the trim fitted after removing the old, expired roof. This new roof is a very high quality item, easily as good as any of the German ones. It’s a mohair hood, so if you do buy the car, please, please never use any shampoo on it! Just water is fine… Tim the Trim says you can expect 10 years out of a roof so long as it’s looked after, 6-7 if not. He also said it needs a bit of time to be ‘weathered’, which is why in some of the photos it looks saggy at the rear of the car… It’s not, it’ll settle. Photos were taken just days after the roof was fitted and the car hadn’t seen anything other than the inside of my storage unit until then, so a few days of rain and a bit of sunshine will sort it right out.

There is no rust on the car, all of the arches are in fine condition, which is rare for cars of this age, especially the E30 which is prone to rust.

The paintwork on the car is very good indeed.

ENGINE:

The car came to me as a non runner with an immobiliser issue. I had a mechanic check the car over and spent £260 on a full service. It now drives as it should, idles fine, runs at normal temperature for the engine and is generally a pleasant little motor all round. Doesn’t use any oil or coolant, doesn’t drip any oil.

BAD BITS:

I’ve worked hard to get this little car back up to standard. The only faults are as follows:

– There’s only 1 key
– Very few documents came with the car, the service history was missing when the car came to me and I had to send off for a V5, which is now in my name.
– The car is listed as an insurance write off back in 2012. This is understandable because values of these were low 3 years ago, so any minor damage would result in a write off. It has been repaired to a very high standard and really shouldn’t be a concern to the new owner, any check is welcome.
– The wiring could do with checking, the central locking will work using the boot (?!) but not the doors, although the central locking works fine this way, but you might get bored of walking around to the boot every time! I suspect this is due to someone fitting an aftermarket alarm at some point in the cars life.

Overall, a very usable classic car that’s not going to lose you any money, prices are only going one way!

This is the second E30 I’ve come across, if you’ve been looking for one of these for a while you may have seen the red one with ‘coke bottle’ wheels which sold back in July for £3100.

Personally, although this car doesn’t have much in the way of history, I think it’s a better car, so I’ve priced it accordingly and am open to offers.

A little winter fun…

We’ve just picked up a 4×4 Subaru Impreza GL. It’s not a Turbo, but at some point in it’s life it’s been hit with the Colin Mcrae stick and in dark blue and gold, looks fantastic!

The 2.0 naturally aspirated engine is in fact very good, and with that 4×4 road handling, the Imprezas lower in the model range aren’t to be sniffed at. There’s some dogs out there, but ours seems to have been fairly well looked after.

Yours for less than a grand, but until it sells, we’ll be hooning around as many gravel tracks as we can find.

Stuff We Want #1 – Escort RS Cosworth

What it is: 1994 Ford Escort RS Cosworth LUX (4×4)

Where you can get it: Parkway Specialist Cars in Nottinghamshire

What it’ll cost you: £30,000

goodshoutmedia-FORD ESCORT 2.0 COSWORTH LUXURY 3DR-1

The 1994 Escort RS Cosworth Lux in the iconic Mallard Green has just 48,300 miles on the clock and appears in ‘factory condition’. The beautiful leather seats combined with that classic Cosworth colour and the wonderful 2.0 Turbo engine make this a real object of desire in the automotive world. Being a later model with the smaller Garret T25 Turbo unit and four wheel drive make this a highly desirable model. The smaller T25 Turbo featured less lag than the larger T3 unit, making the cars much more predictable and power delivery much smoother. On the later model Cosworths, the large rear spoiler became an deletable option, and it’s our opinion that speccing a car with the large ‘whale tale’ spoiler and the luxury pack was absolutely the right choice for this Cosworth. At £30,000 this looks like a sure fire investment. Cosworth prices have been climbing over the last few years, and with so few available in this sort of condition, it seems a fair bet that the prices still have some way to go.

Description from Parkway Specialist Cars: This Example Has Spent Most Of Its Life In Dry Heated Garage As Part Of A Collection, Making This Now Are Rare Find Indeed. The Car Is Finished In Mallard Green Metallic Paint With Recaro Raven Leather Sport Seats, With A Total Presentation Being In Lovely Original Condition, Perfect For Any Future Collection In The UK Or Across The Globe. Standard Lux Model Options Include The Original 16″ Cosworth Alloy Wheels, The Signature Rear Whale Tail Spolier And Ford Radio Cassette System.
