1949 MG TC
Mileage: 107146 miles
Colour: British Racing Green
Paperwork up to date
The MG TC was the first postwar MG launched in 1945. The “T” series was very popular amongst younger generation.
The TC is very similar to the pre-war TB sharing the same 1250cc engine however with a slightly higher compression ratio upping the power 40kw and through the addition of a hydraulically oil pressure adjusted timing chain tensioner. This was a very tuneable motor of that era where even the makers provided information for several alternative stages of tuning. Even so, the XPAG engine is well known for reliability. A Notable feature was the automatic mechanical timing advance was built into the ignition distributor. All TC’s came with coveted 19” Dunlop wire wheels.
Only 10 000 MG TC’s originally made. Most were exported to the United States, even though TC’s were only build in right hand drive.
This car is one of the last to roll of the production assemble as number 9494. A stunning Midget that is in good condition. The motor runs really well with a lovely purr inside a clean engine bay. The paint isn’t perfect for this old girl, but it is a perfect colour combo in British Racing Green over black leather.
1964 Ford Galaxie 500XL 390 Coupe
It’s seldom one comes across such a rare car in South Africa…on offer is one of two ’64 Galaxie Coupe’s notorious in SA. Now we all have seen the legendary Sarel van der Merwe charging hard at the front of the pack in the Big Red, a fully race-converted mean machine with all the go faster bits. For almost a decade, the Big Red has led the field across RSA’s racetracks, much to the delight of cheering crowds. It’s been a truly awesome spectacle to witness as such, a behemoth of a land yacht which crushes all the sporty classic race cars of that age.
The Galaxie is a big vehicle, make no mistake, known as the premium full-size in Ford’s range of cars at the time – the big brother- the Fairlane. It is renowned for transporting people in the fifties, sixties and seventies in serious style with living room comfort, and all whilst having a big lump of a motor up front so cruising speeds were more than adequate. Put your foot down and the machine lurches forward with urgency whilst the V8 rumbles to the tunes of our petrol head’s hearts. The 4-doors are what we know because they were aplenty. The story of this Galaxie, however, is a little different and very special!
In the late sixties a gentleman and his wife were making their way from Durban on holiday all the way back to Pretoria where he lived on a small holding. He stopped at what seemed to be a random BP gas station. Upon closer inspection, he noticed something big, red and shiny glaring at him from behind some shop windows. Walking up, his heart fluttered as he saw his dream car! The road going car was raced at the Kyalami 9hr in 1963 by Paul Hawkins and Jack Sears. Now the race car didn’t finish the race due to a blown head gasket, but it sure won the hearts of many in the crowd. Earlier that year, the winner of the 1963 Daytona 500 was, you guessed it, a Ford Galaxie 500XL Coupe so the Galaxie was already immortalized in history and went on to further become a legend in racing history. Before his eyes, lay a big beautiful Galaxie Coupe, his dream car! When the gentleman enquired if the shop owner was present, he was told no by virtue, that this was one of many gas stations he owned. Mesmerized, the gentleman left his details just in case the owner ever was willing to sell. And just like that, he set off to complete the arduous journey home. Nearly a year later, the illusive phone call came and without any convincing at all, he rushed back towards Durban to meet the owner. Upon arrival, the gentleman was able to now have a proper close inspection…and this is where it gets even better. The Galaxie Coupe was XL Model, which stood for “Xtra Lively.” Great! The slanted roof line was designed for Nascar, so there was more aerodynamic with less lift and this model had been specced with the premier vinyl roof trim. Then he opened the driver’s door…the full luxury interior was opted for which included power windows, a 3-speed heater defroster, radio – but there was a nice twist. The front row of seats was not a bench but two thin-shell bucket seats with chrome trim and the rear had the same layout so effectively it was a 2 plus 2 sports car. Unique too, was the option of a 4-speed manual box and low and behold, this Galaxie had this too. So, what was under the hood? Ford’s most notable engine choice at the time – the Thunderbird 390 big block motor!!! All the right combo’s! So, this Galaxie has performance, style and luxury all wrapped up in a 60’s era red suit. Stunning! And ultra-rare worldwide with these options that had been listed. Race pedigree with creature comforts, this owner clearly knew how to spec a car!
The XL Galaxie shape went on to be Ford’s best seller of any XL’s produced in any year and this 64 shape is considered to be the most attractive Galaxie ever built.
A deal was struck, and the gentleman returned home the proud owner of an ultra-rare, 1964 Ford Galaxie 500XL Coupe. This became his holiday vehicle which he only used for long road trips throughout South Africa. Needless to say, the Big Red not only won his heart, but that of his wife and many admirers along the travels. Then disaster struck. The Gentleman contracted a disease which stripped him of his ability to drive a manual car and subsequently, not being able to drive at all. Big Red was parked in his garage, placed on stilts, covered and lay in dark in the hope that one day, just one day, he may be able to drive it again. No such luck and after a long 22yrs, he succumbed to fact that he was never to drive again. Not fair! But still having a loving affinity for his big red, he made the decision that someone else should still get to enjoy the big old Galaxie. The thing is though, this Galaxie didn’t look old…the interior looked almost new which is remarkable for a 56yr old car, but when you consider the caring life it led with 22yrs hidden away, it makes sense. With only 59 000 miles, Big Red hasn’t even covered 100 000 kilometers…that’s less than 2000 kilo’s a year. So, this is where we came in, on the hunt for a clean Galaxie and we catch a glimpse of it when looking at another classic also hidden in his garage. Well, they call it love at first sight and we know because our hearts were fluttering, short of breath and almost dropping to our knees – we knew we weren’t leaving without this piece of history. Again, another deal was done on big red and the behemoth was sent to Cape Town where we recommissioned Big Red to live once again! And boy, does he live!! In original paint still, we did a complete once over, changed all the fluids, the battery and some essentials, and boom, Big Red fired to life!! We are pleased to say that even on initial test runs, we only stopped when the gas ran out as the fuel gauge doesn’t work…and that’s the thing, everything works, even down the original radio which tunes straight in. The car itself feels like a character. We imported some special 18inch Riddler wheels and adorned them with some fat rubber to give Big Red some new boots and an even sportier look, but don’t despair, the original wheels are still intact and in storage. Then we replaced the exhaust (which was bit tired) with a Powerflow to give it some extra oomph and deep burly sound, but not too loud, as this is a head turner cruiser, not some real racer. Then we decided the engine bay could do with a spruce up as it was literally the only area of the car that didn’t look close to new, so we pulled the motor out, refreshed it with some performance mods, including a light cam for a lumpy idle that we all love and sprayed the engine bay and replaced all the lines. It now looks amazing and the Thunderbird tappet covers shine in all their glory now! With a 56yr old car, one can always do more, but we choose to stop there to show off the original patina this car still holds…even the chrome work is impressively in good condition. A few breakfast runs, car shows, road rallies, and a magazine appearance later, it’s now time for Big Red next custodian to take over and it will be a privilege for whoever makes the choice, but make sure that you too are as infatuated with Big Red as all the previous caring owners who have had the honour to drive this exclusive rare beast from the sixties when stuff was just so damn cool!
There are plenty of SA Ford Collectors out there…many will have the collectable Mustang’s, Capri Perana’s , Shelby Cobra’s powered by Ford and the like of special models, but NO-ONE will have one of these Galaxie’s!!
On offer is a recreation of the original 4 ever built Ferrari 330 P4 race cars.
It has been built to an absolutely stunning standard with attention to detail.
The interior has been done as close to the original examples as possible with the Veglia instrumentation with horizontal needles, a Momo detachable steering wheel and the 44mm aluminium ball gear lever as per the original Ferrari spec.
With only 4 examples ever built of the original race cars that competed in the 24hour Daytona and dominated 1-2-3 victory against the Ford Gt40, the real thing would have a price tag of over $20 million. Our recreation is only a fraction of the price and you will still get the same feeling driving this than the original one. Well…. maybe not the same feeling, but it would be the closest you will get to the real Ferrari P4 race car.
The Recreation is equipped with a fibreglass body and a more modern reliable Lexus V8 1UZ 4 litre engine that creates 190kw and 379Nm coupled with the reliable 5 speed Audi gearbox for precision gear selection has been chosen. (The engine bay has adequate space to install engine’s up to a Ferrari 400i)
The Lexus suspension and steering rack was used as the base with a modern tubing space frame. Girlock brakes and disc were chosen as the stopping power. Paring that with the Mickey Thompson tyres and “Bolt on” hubs with decorative spinners to recreate the real image.
A Full engine bay fire extinguisher system operated by a lever in the cab was installed for extra safety. As it is a bit of a more modern race car, Air conditioning has been fitted for much needed cool air.
1967 Volkswagen Split Window Crew Cab Kombi
Paperwork up to date
On offer is a great example of the Crew Cab Kombi, also known as the Doka in Germany. This vehicle has had a full nut and bolt restoration about 6 years ago and it still looks like it was completed yesterday. The body and under carriage looks absolutely stunning. The Interior has been upholstered with cream leather and black carpets. The safari windows work perfectly and its always nice having them open on a warm summers day.
Mechanically this vehicle is in great condition and starts up on the button. The engine was upgraded to a 1600cc twin port for a better driving experience and to add more power.
These crew cabs are really hard to come as there where only a handful made and the owners who have them will just not let go. This is a great opportunity to own an investment that will only go up in value.

1971 Porsche 911 Carrera RS lightweight replica LHD
Mileage: 105898 miles
Paperwork up to date
Originally introduced in 1963, the iconic Porsche 911 is a shape recognised the world over. The engine hanging over the rear axle was certainly perceived controversial by some, but this layout has since delivered 911’s that have set drivers pants on fire with blistering performance! Right from inception, Porsche proved the its formula with racing, and boy has it been successful in just about all forms of motorsport.
Early Carrera RS models are considered by many collectors as THE greatest classic 911s of all time and those in the know, know exactly why! As with so many highly collectible sportscars nowadays, The “Racing sport” was a production special manufactured in low volumes to meet the minimum number to be able to enter certain racing formulas. The 911 2.7 RS was given the core basics of a bigger engine, larger brakes and stiffened suspension – this truly was a great in the motoring world which has since been adorned in ever book of the greatest driver vehicles!
The car in question was built by the renowned and now legendary Peter Gough, who completed it in 1994 after a painstaking 14 month build. From the outset, the goal was to outperform a standard RS. No expenses were spared in achieving this goal and perfection was priority over costs! The donor body came of a 71’ 911 2.2T which was in already solid condition….He then set about with a full body restoration adding the RS rear arches, front & rear bumper and boot lid. On the inside, the interior was given the full lightweight RS trim (hood lining & Carports) and super supportive original RS Recaro seats were installed. It certainly looks the part! Now for the performance parts!!!
The gearbox came from a 915 that was fully reconditioned by Porsche agents coupled with a new genuine Porsche heavy duty clutch along with a pressure plate were fitted. Then a new competition exhaust system was fitted to handle the increased engine output. The 2.7lt crank and 7R crank casings were fitted with 2.9litre male competition high compression pistons and sleeves which were professionally ported with twin spark heads. New 46 IDA Weber carbs on high rise manifolds with K&N filters were installed. An additional external oil cooler was mounted up front behind the bumper with standard Porsche plumbing. Engine Check! Power Check! Straight line speed Check!
And now to stop this beast! The brakes were upgraded with competition in mind with dual master cylinders front and rear with a brake bias adjuster for incredible stopping power. Suspension Is Bilstein all round with Weltmeister adjustable anti roll bars fitted front and rear. Of course there has to be some 15 inch Genuine Porsche Fuchs wheels to complete the package. The handling on this has been set-up for road and track…you can push super hard on the road and go down to your local track and turn in some laps. Driver experience, simply outstanding! It makes all the right noise and feels like an extension of one’s body as you think your way through corners. An absolute blast to drive!
This special car carries loads of build history with Porsche Agent invoices that a car of this calibre deserves. Please contact for more detailed information on the build and parts fitted.

1977 Ferrari 308 GTB Fibre Glass edition
Mileage: 34 378 miles
Paperwork in order.
On offer is this highly sought Fibre Glass edition of the coveted Ferrari 308 GTB….originally launched at the Paris Motor Show in 1975, this Ferrari literally set the world alight. Pininfarina was once again in business with this spectacular pointy nose wedge design coupled with the right layout where the mid engined motor lay behind the 2 seater sportscar. Production started with the GTB Berlinetta in 1976, with the 308 GTS Targa variant being introduced in 1977. The first 702 308 Ferraris built wore fibreglass bodies before the company switched to steel. In total, just over 12 000 308’s were produced from ’76 to ’85 with the Fibre Glass bodies becoming an ultra-desirable car within Ferrari collectors garages. The early carburettor models of which this is one are the more sought after because of the strong performance and less hassles that fuel injection brought about.
This car’s 8 cylinder, 2927cc engine makes a glorious 255hp as the 4 (yes, you heard right, 4) weber carbs give life to a roughty-ness we love so much from classic cars. Its an absolute riot when the engine is at full chat just behind your head and surprising, the car still pulls hard even by modern standards making for a scintillating and proper involving drive. Weighing in at only 1050kg’s (a full 200kg’s lighter than the steel body) this is the type of car you get in when you want to clear your head, blow off steam and enjoy a proper car with the art of driving fast for what it is…pure bliss. It’s no wonder this model went on to win racing championships the world over.
So now that we know this is a proper Ferrari for the collection…where does this leave us with this car? Well, it’s a much more world-wide desirable LHD for starters and then there’s is the condition: Close to perfect, unrestored, unpainted absolute beauty with only 34 378 miles. ONLY 34k MILES!! That’s only 800 miles a year on average and that is what you need to know, this car has only had 3 custodians from new who have driven this Q car on special occasions within from these collectors. It honestly feels as tight as it was when it first danced off the factory floor, something truly special now some 43 years later. Full service records and all original books with tool kits, spare wheel and even the original radio is in tact and working making this car a real time capsule!

1984 Alfa GTV6 3.0

We present to you, the fastest production sports car ever built by Alfa Romeo in the 80’s. The GTV6 3.0 was developed mainly for racing, however for it to qualify to race the manufacturer had to build a minimum of 200 examples. Alfa Romeo South Africa built approximately 220 units of the GTV6 3.0. With its debut, the 3.0 won the 2 hour race at Kyalami in 1983 and placed 2nd at the 3 hour World Endurance Championship Race at Killarney. These 3.0 models were all fit with the Dell’Orto Carburettors where they replaced the fuel injection systems, this was all in the formula to replace the peak power with low end torque. With this mod it increased the power to 136KW at 6700rpm and still managed to hit a top speed of 224km/h, 0-100km/h was 8.36 seconds. It didn’t stop there, Alfa made some visible changes too, the bonnet was replaced with the custom lightweight version and fit with the iconic compomotive alloy wheels, some dashes were chawed to the solid straight options too.
The car in the spotlight, under went a full restoration by leading Alfa specialist in South Africa they completed this showroom condition car with not a cent to spare.

1991 Mercedes-Benz 230E W124
Mileage: 30416 miles
Back in the late eighties and early nineties Mercedes was known for one advantage over all other manufacturers – rock solid build quality! No shortcuts were taken and it wasn’t uncommon to see Mercedes’s running past 600km’s on the clock…some taxi’s even made the magic milestone of a million kilometers. You can just imagine how tight and rock solid this Mercedes 230E feels with only 30 000 kilometers on the clock – yes, you read right; 30k on the clock!!!
Advanced for its time, the W124 took the best parts and ideas from previous higher models in the Merc line-up to produce what was the best E Class to date and widely considered to be the top marque in this category of cars. Concepts that seem small today in comparison like the single windscreen wiper reduce wind noise and increased surface area coverage for cleaning the screen. An E Class with underbody plastics to streamline airflow and reduce the drag coefficient thus improving fuel consumption. This was the era where car manufacturers really started making a string of varieties on one platform. The W124 had many models to choose from and the picky automotive consumer was born.
This lovely 2 tone Mercedes looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor. Red paint almost 30yrs later that is as bright as the day it was sprayed shows testament to the build quality levels throughout this Merc – and of course, a sheltered life has preserved this particular model too. The second last year that this model was produced, it’s the right one to have by many standards. The medical kit, tool kit and carpets are all untouched…the engine bay looks like some concourse winner. Its uncanny that something can be this clean!! Stickers haven’t seen a day’s wear and tear!
If you looking for the best example you can find to add to your collection, this must certainly be it. Priced relative to condition and mileage, there is some small wiggle room, but take it from us – come and see the car if you truly interested.

|Ferarri GTO California Recreation|
|Car Model:||GTO California Recreation|
|Discription:||The remarkable fulfillment of one man’s dream – a unique Ferrari recreation 250 GT. The original Ferrari 250 GT Californias are amongst the world’s most sought-after and expensive classic cars, selling for as much as £20 million. The driving force behind the stunning recreation on offer at Barons is an Italian car aficionado who had long dreamt of owning such an iconic machine, and who has now – with exhaustive attention to detail and a deep dedication to authenticity – created a beautiful car that is almost indistinguishable from the original.
Based on a 1997 BMW Z3 M Sport – itself a highly desirable car and one that is the identical size, wheel-to-wheel to the original 250 GT – the recreation is a labour of love that offers the attention-gathering beauty and appeal of a classic 250 GT combined with the benefits of modern motoring technology and German engineering. The result is a true collector’s item which, in the words of its creator, ‘Looks like the real thing and sounds like the real thing but can be serviced in any modern garage facility without that service costing tens of thousands of pounds.”
Every item on the car, from the body panels to the seats, has either been purchased from Ferrari or GTO Engineering or bespoke manufactured to the most demanding standards. Original Ferrari parts include the indicator stalks (installed at a cost of €1,800), grille, window winders, door handles, badging, headlamps and rear view mirror. Even the ashtray is an original Ferrari item, bought from GTO Engineering for £400. To acquire one correct Nardi steering wheel as sported by the 250 GT, the owner actually had to buy four of them. The car runs on the original size Pirelli tyres, wrapped around an €8,000 set of Borrani wheels.
The £4,000 stainless steel exhaust features a resonator box so it sounds like a V12 on carburetors – and steroids! To create the bumpers, the vendor had a mold made and the bumpers were then cast in stainless steel – at a cost of £3,000. The engine is the 325 HP BMW M3 E36 power unit, giving outstanding reliability and even more power than the original 250 GT.
Fascinating attention to detail has resulted in modern features not sported by the original being cleverly disguised. For example, while the doors feature Ferrari window winders, opening the ashtray reveals the controls for the electric windows and heated seats. The seats themselves are precise replicas of the Ferrari originals – only with the benefit of heating for colder climates. Beneath the period radio sits a speaker with a difference. Entirely in keeping with the authentic 250 GT styling, this was made specially in Germany by Becker. It pulls down to reveal the air conditioning controls hidden behind. And the vendor chose to have the car painted black, with black upholstery, in tribute to the ‘lost Ferrari 250 GT, the black on black machine which has never been found.
This stunning and meticulously created machine offers the chance to acquire a recreation that is visually almost identical to the original 250 GT, built to the highest of standards and featuring an extensive range of Ferrari or bespoke-manufactured parts.
The vendor – a former Chairman of two Italian motor clubs and a lifelong enthusiast for Italian cars and motorcycles – commented, “I have owned some 500 cars, many of them very beautiful, but no other machine I have driven has attracted such a huge amount of positive attention.”
Original Ferrari 250 GT Californias sell for some £20 million. The estimate for this glorious and intricately detailed recreation is £70,000-£100,000.
