Elegant, authentic, reliably
Alvis was founded in Coventry in 1919. From the beginning they produced modern sport cars, solid as a rock and with fantastic engines. The “Silver Eagle” with the famous 6 cylinder engine came in the end of the 20s. This engine was developed constantly.
Our Alvis Tourer is a late example. The 2.5 litre engine with three carburettors has a lot of power. The open tourer is equipped with stronger brakes and the gorgeous Speed Twenty transmission. This family racer is ready to use and can be driven on almost all historic events. It is easy to handle and very fast – so to all Bentleys: “Watch out.”

In 1949 Daimler-Benz introduced the Mercedes 170 S (S = special class) at the Paris Auto Salon. Compared to the only other post war car, the 170 V this was a big improvement. The industry media was enthusiastic about its “peace like” construction and finish. The separate chassis allowed for special body styles so the four-door Cabriolet B and the stunningly beautiful Cabriolet A were created.
Our classic Mercedes-Benz 170 S Cabriolet A was delivered to Casablanca (French Morocco at the time), according to its factory certificates. Its color and interior were exactly like today. Later, the car went to Maryland, USA and came back to Germany in 1990. Its current owner treated the car with a “frame off” restoration aiming to restore its factory delivery state. Since 2007 this historic Mercedes is back on the road and is just an effortless joy to drive. It is one of the best we ever offered.
Excellent Convertible A, one of the best!
With the Ponton-Limousine 220 a with the 6-cylinder engine, Daimler-Benz was finally able again to offer a modern car for the upper middle class. However, the convertibles in the W 187 series looked fairly conservative and it took until July 1956 until a convertible for the series W 180 was developed. Its integral body made the development of this special body type more difficult. This dream car, named 220 S Cabriolet, was stunningly beautiful, of highest quality and mostly handmade. Its features made the new convertible an instant classic.
Our Mercedes-Benz 220 S Cabriolet is registered in Germany. It was completely restored and is as good as new. It comes with a current evaluation of 1-. The original license certificate (“Certificat d’immatriculation”) shows that the car was initially registered in France. It’s a delight to see this convertible and it’s instant driving fun!
Gorgeous convertible in mint condition
For BMW, the break at the end of the Second World War was particularly harsh: The car plant in Eisenach was lost, and the plant in Munich was largely dismantled. Nevertheless, the automobile industry was reorganized in Munich in 1951/52. Unfortunately, BMW could hardly make money with the Isetta on the one hand and the big luxury saloons on the other. It was the small but modern BMW 700 that saved the company in the end. With the “new class” BMW returned to success in 1962. The BMW 501 with the six-cylinder engine was the first post-war construction: superbly engineered suspension, conservative but solid bodywork and an engine developed from the pre-war BMW 326. The BMW 501 with the newly developed V8 aluminum engine (2.6-liter displacement) closed the gap between the six-cylinder and the more opulent equipped 502 model.
Our BMW 501 V8 was built on December 18th 1958 and not registered until 28.03.1960 because of non-acceptance. The buyer was from Pforzheim (Germany). This noble sedan with gray paint and dark green leather is very elegant, with a mileage of only 70,000 km, which appears probable.
Nobel and elegant
In the US, the popular Jeep was offered as a civilian version after the second world war. The British car manufacturer Rover wanted to do the same and return to car manufacturing with a concept for farmers and forest workers. The Land Rover was meant as a transition until more “beautiful” limousines could be manufactured again but its simple and extremely sturdy construction was a great success worldwide. The Land Rover ended up being built in many versions between 1948 and 2016.
Our Land Rover is from the series III, built between 1971 and 1985. The station wagon with short wheelbase (88″, SWB) has a tropical roof and four foldable and sideways facing seats in the back. It is registered in Germany. This Land Rover is an elegant and authentic companion for hobbies and recreation!
Perfect for leisure and hobby
When Daimler-Benz introduced the 170 S in 1949 it represented the automotive premium class because of its chassis and perfect detailing, and despite its pre-war construction. It’s marketing slogan was “The car that doesn’t know bad roads!”. Given the road conditions at the time, that was quite the statement! Between March of 1949 and February of 1952 26,331 models were built before the slightly edited 170 Sb was introduced.
Our Mercedes-Benz 170 S has an interesting story: It was first delivered as reparations to the materials department of the French military in Germany (FFA) where it was deployed in Oberkirch in the Black Forest. In 1965 the “military Mercedes” received a complete overhaul in Friedrichshafen. In 1974 it “retired” from military service and received a German registration and papers. In 2005 the classic was sold to its current owner and is immediately driveable. Its gorgeous character with foldable sliding roof make this classic stand out!
ready for immediate use, wonderful aura
After World War I the demand for larger cars, especially the ones with chauffeur, declined rapidly. So Henry Royce felt compelled to develop a smaller model, the “Twenty” which was introduced in 1922. Its outstanding performance for its size (100 km/h were possible!) made the Twenty very popular with its owners. The next version of this model was the 20/25 HP which was in production between 1929 and 1936. With 3,9827 cars the small Rolls-Royce was a big success.
The body of our Rolls-Royce 20/25 HP is an All-Weather Convertible from T.H. Gill & Son Ltd. It is a particularly high end and one of a kind car. Its gorgeous Art Deco mounts in sterling silver are remarkable. Its first owner was a Mr. Ferguson. The vintage car ist “matching”. It enjoyed a complete restoration by Bowling-Ryan Ltd. In Kearsley near Manchester. Today this classic is registered in Germany.
high quality oneof a kind vintage car
In 1950 a new Alfa Romeo with a 4-cylinder engine was introduced. This model 1900 was the first to be designed for large scale production. Continuous development and diversification of the program led to a variety of models. The DOHC engine turned out to be a once in a century construction. With the special edition “Sprint Speciale Carozzeria Bertone”, a particularly aerodynamic Coupe was created with an ambitious maximum speed of 200 km/h. This was remarkable for a model with 4 cylinders and 1,300 ccm capacity. Today, this classic is a true rarity and a collector car!
Our Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale Coupe was delivered in Italy and has been registered in Germany since 2016. This rare, early classic is authentic and pure at the same time.
