Vauxhall Cavaliers once pounded the motorways of Britain at a time when hazel brown metallic paint and a beige interior combined to be the height of fashion.
Few have survived intact, making MHA 612V a rare breed survivor that, if it had four legs, would be loved and cherished on Adam Henson’s Cotswold farm as an example of a beast that once powered the nation!
The next owner of this motor car will have a talking point wherever it’s taken, gathering a crowd of people who once drove them or were driven in them by their sales rep/middle manager Dad. The trim level determined their place in the company hierarchy so examples like this 2000 GLS would have been the chariot of at least a senior manager had it been in corporate ownership.
However, fewer than 68,000 miles recorded suggests that this car escaped the ravages of company hack with a rather more sedate existence. It was resprayed eight years ago, when new front wings and a front valance were fitted and it also benefits from replacement front springs, brake discs and pads, as well as a new exhaust and some work to the rear brakes. Otherwise, it remains original and ready to welcome a new driver into its velour heaven, where all the instruments and fittings appear to be functioning and the original radio has survived.
The Cavalier sits on its original steel wheels and is also supplied with some spares and an original sales brochure. It has a current V5C certificate will have an MoT test prior to the sale.

Here comes summer and your ticket to a taste of warmth thanks to this VW “Splitty” campervan, the Holy Grail among VeeDub enthusiasts.
The base vehicle, a 1966 German-built 11 window Transporter, was exported to the United States and repatriated to Europe when it arrived on UK shores in 2008. Shortly after, the vendors, both Naval officers, acquired the VeeDub which underwent a total restoration with marque specialists. The rebuilt twin port 1.6 litre engine is coupled to a reconditioned gearbox, while the suspension is sympathetically lowered with coil springs over shock absorbers.
The interior high standards match the exterior, a sheer delight to behold. The owner is highly skilled – having built his own house extension, he plans to go on a boatbuilding course on retirement so the Splitty is now ready to float someone else’s boat.
Its fridge runs on electricity or gas, while the interior also features good lighting, a three quarter fold-down bunk, and a Zig unit to monitor the 12 volt and 240 volt interior electrics. The gas cooker is mounted on one of the twin side doors in period style so can be used inside or out, depending on the weather, making it ideal for those surf trips to Newquay!
The exterior is finished in the VW factory colours of pearl white over velvet green and there’s a perfect colour match to the leather front and vinyl rear seat facings. The original roof has been retained rather than converted to a pop-top, making secure garage storage easier.
It’s very appealing, highly practical, and great value when in the last few years some of these VWs with quality, and not always original, conversions have been achieving well in excess of £50,000. The copious history file, accompanied by a current V5C certificate, clearly shows why this particular camper has such great appeal.
Guaranteed to turn heads wherever it goes, this VW will be welcomed at any classic car or campervan event.

1949 Daimler DB19 DHC by Barker - DORSET VINTAGE & CLASSIC AUCTIONS Thursday 19th March 2020 Henstridge Airfield Henstridge, Somerset, BA8 0TN



FEATURED AUCTION


DORSET VINTAGE & CLASSIC AUCTIONS
Thursday 19th March 2020
Henstridge Airfield
Henstridge, Somerset, BA8 0TN
  



Make: Daimler

Model: DB18 Drophead Coupe by Barker
Year: 1949
Registration Number: KXR 627
Chassis Number: 53511
Engine Number: 20464
Transmission: Pre-Selector
Steering: Right Hand Drive
Colour: Royal Blue over Light Grey
MOT Test Expiry: Exempt
Guide Price: £14500 - 16000
Road Tax Exempt

Lot No: 209

The DB18 was produced from Daimler’s Coventry works between 1939 and 1953. Various Coachbuilders offered their own bodies, this being an elegant three position Drophead Coupe by Barker. Power comes from the six-cylinder 2.5-litre engine as originally specified for the Army’s Scout Car. Reliability was thus important yet it offers refined power and drives through a  recently overhauled, four-speed pre-select gearbox to the rear axle. There is a single SU carburettor fed by an AC mechanical pump.
The present owner acquired the motor car some thirty years ago. He had the body stripped to bare metal and resprayed in Royal blue and grey with a pleasing red coachline. Being a well-established coach trimmer by profession, he undertook a complete refurbishment of the interior in his own workshops, providing lovely red leather seats and a high-quality mohair hood, fully lined and having the ability to be used in three separate positions.
The motor car has become well known over the years, appearing in local shows and events. Sadly due to the poor health of its owner, it has had very few outings in recent years and now that driving is no longer possible for him, the owner has decided it is time this lovely old Daimler found a new home.
KXR 627 is offered with a V5C registration certificate, a sheaf of old MOT test certificates, some photographs of the aforementioned restoration, a workshop handbook, a spare parts catalogue and sundry spare parts.
