Jaguar E Type 2 seat Convertible RHD 1969

Acknowledged worldwide to be the most beautiful car design ever, with performance and comfort to match. Our British Racing Green 4.2 S2 has been beautifully restored and drives superbly, with a gorgeous sound from its 6 cylinder engine. The first owner bought the car in San Francisco, we have the full documented history with every receipt from new. After 17 years the car was sold to the second owner who imported the car to Denmark. He owned the car for 18 years and between 1993 and 2005 the car had a complete strip down and full rebuild. In 2007 the third owner bought the car and enjoyed for next eight summers before we bought the car and converted to RHD.

Jaguar E Type 2 seat Fixed Head RHD 1970

To the purist the FHC E Type has the best lines. We have owned this car for 25 years, ‘my last fling before getting hitched!'. Recently undergoing its second full restoration with a new aluminium bonnet, immaculate dark blue paintwork and grey interior. A popular wedding car- it photographs exceptionally and has rare factory fitted power steering . The fixed heads also have very useful luggage space for a minimoon or touring. This car has also only had three previous owners and its documented mileage of under 80,000 works out an annual mileage of less than 1750 miles.

Porsche 911E 2 seat ‘Targa’ Convertible LHD 1973

The most successful sporting road car ever built, our 911 is the last year of the ‘classic’ 911s, with a 2.4L engine, and without impact bumpers. Our car was imported from Texas, so hasn’t suffered from the rust problems of UK vehicles. Recently refurbished in its original metallic silver with new black leather interior and refurbished Targa top. A very practical and sporting car- with the top removed the fixed rear screen allows ‘almost’ wind free open top driving. Our 911E has mechanical fuel injection, a 5-speed gearbox, and was termed the “secret weapon from Zuffenhausen” by the press when introduced as it was faster up to 100mph then the 911S, and much more tractable to drive. A rare sight on the roads, there are less than 20 of these classic 911 Targas recorded as registered in the UK.

BMW 2002 4 seat Convertible RHD 1973

The 02 series ‘new class’ were produced between 1962 and 1971, establishing the identity of BMW’s sporting coupe. Our 02 has been completely rebuilt by the marque specialists in the 1990s and carefully driven since. Much smaller than modern 3 series cars but with 4 seats (rearseats for ‘small adults’), and with a large boot. Our 02 has been converted to twin Webers sportier camshaft bringing up to Ti spec. A fun and practical car that is a bit of a crowd puller when parked- there are less than 50 of these convertibles left on the road in the UK. With the Targa top removed and rear hood left up you won’t spoil your hairdo!

  • We returned for our fourth time to Gosforth to rent Phil’s beautiful convertible E type Jaguar. Don’t be shy about asking him about his cars as he’s always keen to chat and each one has a story! After...  more »

  • Had an absolutely fantastic trip out in the BMW 2002. Trouble free from start to finish and a great day out. Well worth it!
  • I booked the e type jag as this had always been dad's favourite car and he said if he won the lottery that's the car he would buy. Phil picked dad up from his home and followed the coastal route up to Alnmouth where he met the family for lunch. From the picking up to the dropping off was great for dad. Phil was friendly, helpful and certainly helped to make dad's 90th birthday present a roaring success, I couldn't recommend Northumbria Classic Cars enough. Thanks again Hilary (& David).
