These are cars that have all been sold at Gassman Automotive!

1959 Triumph TR3A

This car received a frame off restoration done in New York State approximately 7 years ago. We purchased the car and finished a few details and sold it to one of our clients. They have since sold their house and lost garage space. They have asked us to sell the car and we are pleased to be able to offer it. It was subject to a very comprehensive restoration and has a very nice appearance overall. Finished in signal red with black interior; the car has painted 60 spoke wire wheels and comes complete with not only top and side curtains, but also a full tonneau cover and car cover.

Judging from the cars power, I think it is safe to assume when the engine was rebuilt that the 87mm pistons were installed. An aluminum radiator and adjustable thermostat were also installed during restoration. The car is very nice with a good deal of detail, a beautiful engine bay and beautiful trunk.

When driving it holds fantastic oil pressure, runs cool, and drives very nicely. It is truly ready for these beautiful summer days ahead and as in any restoration, offered for a fraction of the money spent.

Call Mike for further details (540)649-3000.

1976 Triumph TR6 Fully Loaded

Here you go, guys. A fully-loaded inca-yellow TR6 for reasonable money.

This car just completed a major service done here at Gassman Automotive. While the car has always run very well, it was leaking oil from the transmission overdrive and engine. We have just replaced the timing cover seal and gasket, added a speedi-sleeve to the front hub, replaced the timing chain and tensioner, removed and resealed the front engine plate, removed and resealed the oil pan, as well as replacing the rear main seal. Flywheel was just turned and a new, upgraded, Sachs four-piece clutch kit was installed. The overdrive was removed from the transmission and completely disassembled, cleaned, checked, and resealed, as well as the entire gearbox disassembled. Any items with wear replaced, and the entire unit was resealed. The two were mated together, bench tested, and filled with fluid, and have just been reinstalled in the car with new transmission mounts.

We have just gone for a test drive in the car, and the car runs very well, with excellent oil pressure. There are no bad noises in the motor, the transmission shifts beautifully, and on an 86 degree day, the temperature remained below half. The clutch is much easier than the Laycock clutch that was in it, and it is extremely smooth. There have been multiple items restored recently on the car and it has a very nice interior. Everything is very proper. When I say fully-loaded, the car has j-type overdrive in third and fourth gear, a factory hardtop in very nice condition, new tonneau cover, and new boot cover for the new soft top.

Excellent exterior and paint. Engine compartment is very clean, but the yellow paint in the engine bay appears to have been brushed rather than sprayed. Incredibly solid chassis with no rust and no obvious signs of repair. Possibly the oil leaks over the years have saved the rear trailing arms, as they are some of the nicest that we have ever seen. Brake booster and brakes work very nicely and stop the car in a straight direction. All lights, horns, turn signals, etc. work as they should. Car has been upgraded with a Sony AM/FM CD stereo. Several years ago (?) the motor was replaced and the replacement motor is an early '71-'72 (?) high-compression engine with virtually no power-robbing emission control. The factory dual exhaust and muffler create that nice tone that TR6's are known for without being overwhelming. All gaps on the car are very good and the body is very straight. It presents excellent and would make an exceptional driver for anyone looking for an honest TR6. A considerable amount of receipts come with the car as well as the current bill from us that shows a breakdown of money just spent.

1957 Triumph TR3 Smallmouth

Very unusual RHD, we purchased this car recently from a gentleman who has owned it for 3 years. He purchased it from the gentleman who commissioned the restoration. A full frame off very nicely detailed and very comprehensive was done. Well detailed underneath chassis and underside of the car with all new suspension, koni shocks and bushings. Car was lowered approximately 1 inch which creates a very aggressive look with the addition of the 7 inch Lucas driving lights peering out of the grill opening. Green piping was also put on the body instead of the stainless strips to create more of a smooth racy appearance. The interior is very nicely done in black vinyl with white piping and correct loop carpet. Lifting any of the carpet shows that the entire body shell was stripped, sandblasted, and nicely painted throughout. The body is straight and paint is extremely well detailed and the engine obviously had 87mm pistons and liners installed when it was rebuilt as it is very strong. A 6 blade plastic fan from a TR6 was added to keep the car cool with the extra power, also HS6 carburetors from a TR4A were added along with a T-handle choke knob to eliminate sticking chokes as TR3s with H6s are famous for. Attention to detail throughout the entire car with tasteful modification such as a beautifully painted dash rather than vinyl wrapped. The car rides on a new set of Dayton stainless steel spoked wire wheels with modern radials. A new convertible top in black is being installed at the time of writing this, the car will come with a fitted new Robbins black crush grain top as original.

Currently the car has an everflex tonneau cover which fits extremely well. Details down to the spare tire well being painted exeptionally well and zero evidence of rust shows how nice this car must have been prior to restoration.

One of the greatest improvements was the Toyota Celica 5 speed transmission conversion. This eliminates the non synchronized transmission and also adds the 5th gear which is overdrive. The car feels very happy zipping down the road at 70mph. I am certain there are many people that are not sure about not owning a right hand car, I have multiple right hand cars and my favorite is my right hand drive TR5. After about 5 minutes of driving this car you will see how easy it is and how natural it feels. I think it is really cool having a British car as it is designed, it certainly makes you unique. The pictures represent this car very well and it is in fact as nice as it looks.

VA DLR #0727

1970 Porsche 911T Coupe

The current owner of this car purchased it from Mohr Imports in Monterey, California where they had consigned the car from the long term owner who was the second owner of the car. Always used in California, this rust free car is an exceptional example of the iconic sports car, living in the dry west coast. Having traveled only a little over 80,000 miles since new, the car has never lost that new car feel.

In the 90s, as was common with these cars, a color change from the original tangerine to spa white was done, rear steel fender flares were welded in very nicely and an S style spoiler was installed in the front. A black-out of all chrome was done and the Porsche racing stripes were installed on the lower doors.

The car comes with its C.O.A. and has matching numbers throughout. It has the desirable sunroof and 4 speed transmission. There are really no stories that go along with this car in any derogatory terms. Just turn the key and go. It runs extremely well and since the current owner installed a sway bar, it rides on rails. The seats have also had new foam installed approximately 7 years ago.

A vigorous maintenance routine has been followed to a T on this car while living in a climate controlled environment. This car is truly ready to go and will certainly please the most avid enthusiast. Quite stunning, simple, and fun.

1946 MG TC

VIN#TC/1971

This car was restored by Gassman Automotive about 7 years ago. The motor had been freshly built prior to our starting. A comprehensive correct restoration was performed to a very high standard. The body off, frame up restoration was taken to bare metal and everything that could be restored or replaced was. Both the green and the primrose yellow are MG colors even though they never combined the two. This car was inspired by Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys who had a primrose yellow TC with green interior and added the green fenders. The look is quite stunning and they work extremely well together.

New suspension, brakes, tires, wiring, rubber chrome clutch, glass, leather wool and top/was replaced. The gauges were beautifully restored and rebuilt by Nisonger Instruments. A stunning burled dash was created by Randy Keller of Prestige Auto Wood. Many period accessories were installed such as the unique alloy valve cover with really cool air filter.

The interior was faithfully replicated as original with Connelly leather and a proper panel set installed. The car retains its original Bluemel steering wheel but shows a few light cracks. A proper canvas tonneau and top were fitted and look fabulous with the color scheme. New 19 inch tires were mounted and balanced. The transmission was refurbished and shifts wonderfully. With very few miles since restoration and being properly cared for, it shows as a fresh restoration but with the benefit of being thoroughly debugged and dialed in. This is truly a vintage car ready to drive.

A full service was just completed and a new regulator and rebuilt generator installed.

Upon completion, a brand new TRW RHD steering box replacement was installed making it a joy to drive without the wandering that is typical for a TC. Kept in climate control since finishing, it still shows as new. Offered for quick sale.

1966 Ford Mustang

Finished in Wimbledon White with a stunning red interior. This car has been subject to a full rotisserie restoration, done by a Mustang shop in Virginia. The client who owns this car and has consigned it to us had a 1966 White coupe in high school and wanted to drive it to his 50th class reunion. He purchased the car which was born with a 6-cylinder motor and commissioned a full restoration which included all floor pans, quarter panels, a completely rebuilt and balanced 289 V8 with a new intake and 4 barrel carburetor. Air conditioning was added through vintage air and blows extremely cold and has a great deal of volume. Power disc brakes were completely rebuilt front to rear as well as all suspensions, shocks, and complete differential. All chrome was re-chromed or replaced all rubber was replaced. A complete authentic 66 Mustang interior was purchased and beautifully installed from headliner to carpets, all seats, doors, and panels. The dash is proper with no additional holes drilled and beautifully restored. The air conditioning operates from the original hub caps and wheels, new exhaust and a very nice bare metal respray in Wimbledon White. The trunk area is extremely clean with very nice paint and proper hounds tooth mat and spare cover. All the restoration was documented both by receipts and photos and comes with a restoration book. Not counting the cost of the car over $50,000 was spent. The car has less than 500 miles since restoration.

While the current owners intent to have this car at his reunion was on his bucket list, financially he agrees it made no sense, the real winner will be the next person who purchases this car for about 30% of the money spent. Offered for a quick sale at $18,500. Call Mike for details (540)649-3000.

1972 Triumph TR6 Mallard

1967 MGB Roadster

1967 MGB Roadster has been sold!

1967 MGB GT Red For Sale

We are pleased to be able to offer an extemely honest and rare 1967 MGB GT. This car was originally delivered in France and comes with all of its French paperwork and manuals. It is a MGB GT Special which means it has leather interior and lead piping, wire wheels and a beautiful wooden steering wheel. A tremendous amount of money has been spent on rebuilding virtually everything in the engine bay and is detailed to a very high standard. Interior is in very nice condition and the car drives absolutely amazing. Transmission shifts very smoothly and the car runs cool with great oil pressure. The steering is very precise and it is not a rattly car at all.

1967 is quite possibly the most desirable year of the MGB Sports car. The main reason is it the last year of the wrinkle painted metal dash and low seats as it is originally designed but has the very desirable 5 main barring engine which is very stout and reliable. Overall condition of the car is much better than a driver but one fender was resprayed when scratched and is slightly off about 1/2 a tint. With that exception there is nothing on the car derogatory, it looks just as good as these pictures make you think it does. It drives as good as any that I have been in. The previous owner spent a tremendous amount of money on the car, probably as much as we are asking for the car. It was never abused just had gotten tired and has had an incredible refreshening and is ready for the new owner to enjoy. Priced for quick sale $12,850.

Very early 1969 Triumph TR6, incredibly solid and rare color combination with a massive amount of high end modifications, all detailed, photographed, and described below in the last 30 photos. Please read and look at all below.

This very early (2,069th car of only 7,981 total built for 1969) first year of the completely redesigned, most masculine sports car to leave England. This car featured disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, IRS rear suspension, a silky smooth 2.5 liter 4 main bearing engine, and a time tested silky smooth 4 speed transmission. Everything about this TR6 is special, starting at the color which is code 19 White paired with code 12 Matador Red interior. After a proper and very nice restoration was completed on this original, rock solid car, money was poured in with shovels. Every modification on this car is of the highest quality available, and was personally done and approved by Mike Gassman of Gassman Automotive, a 40 year owner of a 1969 TR6, and multiple time national first place winner in VTR and TRA.

Mike raced cars with Richard Good for many years, and has the highest respect for his products. That coupled with Gassman Automotive’s experience and attention to detail creates a car that flows from front to rear as if nothing had ever been modified, it just feels like a factory car that really works. We estimate horsepower to be in the 145-150 range. The car is tuned to run on 93 octane pump gas with no detonation, overheating, or crazy cam lope. It is extremely drivable in the low RPM range, and explodes in the 3,700-5,500 range. Great amounts of time were spent on the tuning and dialing in of this car’s performance. It is completely de-bugged and ready to go, needing nothing for an immediate ride. Offered at a fraction of the build cost.

Recent complete head rebuild with Stellite exhaust valves, stainless steel oversize intake valves, hardened seats, silicone bronze guides, with custom seals, port matched exhaust ports, flowed intake ports, heads cc’ed, raised to 9.8:1 compression. Brand new custom fabricated alloy intake with triple Stromberg carburetors (original TR6’s had only two). Custom fuel lines and linkage, K&N filters, and completely rebuilt carburetors. Also fitted with (Richard Good) headers. Custom head gasket and ARP head studs and nuts.

During recent head rebuild, heavier valve springs with Tuftrited rocker shaft, 1:65:1 alloy roller rockers with spring spacers and Teflon seals. Brand new Richard Good GT2 cam lifters and Vernier adjustable cam gear. New chain and wheels.

New custom alloy radiator and shroud. New green hose set and clamps.

Completely rebuilt original vacuum advance/retard distributor. Recurved and phased.

New custom harmonic balancer.

Hard to see in photo, but new gear reduction starter.

Fantastic original  frame with no rust and no repairs, rock solid.

Adjustable trailing mounts with poly bushings.

Brand new Richard Good CV axles and alloy hub assemblies. New bushings for diff, and reinforcement on pins.

Stainless steel muffler and exhaust system.

View from the back of the trailing arms on frame, no dents, no rot, no repairs.

New Richard Good front sway bar, powder coated, with Delron bushings and CNC mounts.

New GAZ shocks and complete front suspension rebuild with poly bushes.

View of inner sills and floors, absolutely flawless and not covered with undercoating.

Good overview shot of underneath showing the attention to detail, straightness of frame, and solidity of floor pans and sheet metal.

Right inner bulkhead and cookie cutter, rock solid.

12V accessory connection for cell phone charging or GPS.

8 spoke alloy real knock-off rims, with new Yokohama Avid TRZ tires, mounted, balanced, and shaved for trueness. These are true knock-off wheels, and when removed you do have the option to run wire wheels by just sliding them on and tightening the knock-off. Absolutely true, solid, gorgeous wheels.

This first-year 1969 TR6 with extremely low miles (48,000 actual) has spent its whole life in California. This is a true rust-free, un-damaged car, featuring its original paint in its engine compartment, and still showing some of its rust-proofing which has not been wiped off in the engine bay. It has had a very high end re-spray, and the body is straight with extremely nice gaps. The interior is fresh, and the car drives incredibly nice. Fitted with new redlines on original wire wheels, this super low mile rust-free car is the one you want, as it is the highest compression, lowest emission, earlier version of fabulous TR6 that you can get, and it is as close to the original interpretation as possible. The high back seats are original and unique to the 1969 model year, as well as the painted windshield frame. This car still features the fender beading on the rear fenders, which is correct only for 1969. An incredibly honest, very strong running, super solid car that is ready to go.

CALL FOR FURTHER DETAILS AT 540-949-8764. MON-THURS 8:00A-6:00P EASTERN TIME, PLEASE!

We are very pleased to be able to offer this very correct 1961 Austin-Healey Bugeye Sprite. I have personally known this car for over 35 years. The car has literally won over 50 first place awards at British Car shows, as the previous owner was one of my good friends and we drove all over the East coast to car shows together. Keep in mind I said “drove to,” as he never used this as a “trailer queen.” It is a fabulously driving car and has many unusual original components that he had sourced all over the world to make this as correct as it is. While the restoration is definitely “older,” the condition of the car is extremely nice, and it has had a significant recent service making it truly ready to go. Some of the unusual options on this car include: full weather gear, very rare Amco console with lighter and speaker, period correct Amco luggage rack, original safety latch on bonnet, and the proper 948 engine with copper spark plug leads and is correctly detailed. One of the most honest Bugeyes I have ever seen, and truly one of the nicest driving cars I have ever been in. While there are many restored Bugeyes available, most are full of reproduction parts and the authenticity of those cars have slowly gone down. Great pains were taken to keep this car correct, and when replacement parts were needed NOS parts were sourced. Bugeye is completely ready to go and virtually impossible to replace.

We purchased this car from someone who had been performing a multi-year restoration. For a number of reasons, he was not able to complete the car and we took off where he had stopped. The car had been fully repainted with all new chrome, and a beautiful black interior with white piping. All electrical is functioning properly. Wide white walls on steel wheels with correct hub caps make this car quite stunning. We just completed a steering box rebuild, as well as a full service and are very impressed with how nicely this car looks, sounds, and drives. This is an extremely solid, very nicely done, high quality driver that you would be proud to own, and will love driving. I have owned many TR3’s, and they represent a different type of sports car experience, that truly helped to define the phrase ‘sports car’. TR3’s were one of the first cars to be produced with standard disc brakes. Unlike many other sports cars, this car had a heavy duty frame, and an extremely stout engine that was derived from tractors and made to last forever. A smooth transmission, very nice hydraulic clutch, and low slung doors make going through the gears exhilarating. Absolutely timeless, and extremely fun, add the reliability of this one and you can’t go wrong. Priced well below a normal restoration. For more information, please call Mike Gassman on cell # 540-649-3000, Mon-Sat 8:00a-8:00p, Eastern time.

It has always amazed me how an early MGB can be completely different than a later one, even though they share so many components. The car we are offering is basically the best combination of components that MG ever provided. Cosmetically, the car is finished with a beautiful early metal dash featuring gauge binnacles and lovely black leather with red piping, thus epitomizing the craftsmanship of 60’s British cars. The MGB was never designed to be equipped with emission controls, giant rubber bumpers, headrests, and many things that the federal government mandated, which eventually turned them into a completely different car. It was designed to be a smooth, sexy, roadster with minimalistic attributes that accentuated the design, rather than looking like added on afterthoughts. Another reason, ‘66 & ‘67 MGBs are so sought after is they were equipped with the new 1800cc 5 main bearing engine, which was much stronger and more reliable than the 3 bearing engines of the past.

This particular car was subject to a significant restoration, having beautifully done floor replacements and being thoroughly cleaned and detailed from top to bottom. The engine runs silky smooth with great oil pressure and no smoke or noises. The transmission is quite possibly the nicest shifting one I have ever driven, after being rebuilt by John Twist, noted MG expert. The car is finished in red and is quite shiny and straight, but does have a couple spots that have small specks called “solvent pop.” These do not detract from the car in anyway. When it is outside it is nothing short of stunning. Everything inside the car has been replaced, as well as a fantastically fitting top, new chrome, rubber, suspension, brakes, steering, wiring, etc. Nothing has been left out.

In the past 5 years, these cars have dramatically increased in value, and we have had multiple sales of Bs in the upper $30’s. This car was part of a collection which was sold by a gentleman was moving away and was forced to sell quickly. Our great luck purchasing this car, significantly under value, allows us the opportunity to present to it the next owner at an exceptionally good price. You will not find a nicer driving car anywhere close to this car’s cost. Ready to go home with you, and give many years of enjoyable motoring.

The Austin Healey 3000 was born in 1959, beginning with the Mark I. It was just one of few soft-top roadsters that was offered to the American people. The Mark II began production in 1959, and was followed shortly by the most luxurious of the 3000’s, the Mark III, in 1963. The update included a new center console, toggle switches, and optional leather seating. With luxury, also came power. The Mark III produced 150 horsepower with upgraded carburetors and a new dual exhaust system. The Phase II version of the Mark III began after a chassis modification in 1964 that increased rear ground clearence. The Austin Healey 3000 ended production in 1967, despite tremendous efforst from Austin-Healey to make newer models that would be a worthy successor. The 3000 is now a very collected car by enthusiasts from all around the world. Approximately 43,000 3000’s were manufactured, however of those, only 18,000 were Mark III.

The build date of this car was September 1966. Car/chassis number is H-BJ8-L/32757, engine number 29K-RU-H/7746, body number 77617. This is a numbers matching car. The car comes with a certified copy of a factory record issued by the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust. This Healey went through a complete restoration over a 3-4 year period beginning in 2008. The body was completely restored, the drive train rebuilt, interior was authentically restored with original leathers, pads and carpets. The chrome is flawless. Optional equipment included an adjustable steering wheel, overdrive transmission, heater, wire wheels, seat belts, and factory radio. Everything on the car is correct down to all the right hardware. The car runs very well, powered by the Austin 2912 cc in-line 6 cylinder with twin S.U. type HD8 carbs (series BJ8). The car has the distinctive Healey exhaust sound, overdrive snaps in and out very nicely. Tires are Metric Euro radials. Car comes equipped with tonneau cover, boot cover, original jack, supplemental tool kit and original Thor hammer. This is a must have sports car for any serious British sports car enthusiast.

The Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most easily recognizable cars to date due to their rounded shape and popularity around the world. VW first started manufacturing the Beetle, or Bug as most call it, in the 1930’s, although it wasn’t produced in large numbers until the mid 1940’s. VW, along with several other manufacturers, led the way for rear-engine, rear wheel drive cars. By 1955, one million Beetles had been produced!

This Beetle features the single piece oval window, which was last made in 1956. It was followed in 1958 by a much larger, full sized window. During this time, the steel of the body was at its greatest strength and durability, and the Wolfsburg emblem on the hood was a complex fabrication. It was taken out of production shortly after this year.

While also looking adorable, this Beetle is a great car to drive. It is smooth and starts with ease. With low mileage and its impeccable interior/exterior, this will be a great vehicle to drive for many years to come.

This is an incredible survivor. A one owner for 40 years, with a very unusual combination of wire wheels and factory overdrive. Rarely do you see a car that has been this well maintained with a beautiful original interior and an engine compartment that has not suffered under the can of flat black paint. We did very minimal work to the car, replacing the under bonnet heat shields, and a minimal detailing. The underside of this car is incredibly solid, but it did have a small rust hole on both doglegs and the center of both outer rockers. We cut out and replaced with new metal, and then re-sprayed the car from the stainless steel moldings down. The car presents extremely well with a new top replaced sometime during its life. It maintains its original boot cover and tonneau bars still in their bag, very nice spare in the trunk which also has its original paint and is rock solid. The car drives as new, starting every time instantly. It shifts up and down smoothly with no grinding at all, clutch is very light and positive, the brakes are impressive and the motor has no rough sounds with incredible oil pressure and is just a happy car to drive. Nothing is fighting itself, and there are no rattles or squeaks whatsoever. The power is smooth and the car is quiet. I was extremely impressed at how nice the car operates and how original it has been kept. Just an extremely rare example of this classic sports car being treated like part of the family. The original envelope from the original title is present, as is all of its service records and factory British Leyland service cards stamped at the original dealership. While there are many MG’s for sale, I have yet to see a more original or sweeter driving one that this. I got the car out the other day to do a quick video where it was stored in my unheated storage building, which was 29 degrees that morning, and the car started immediately without any issue.

This beautiful MGB has just been recently acquired. The previous long-term owner and restorer of the car has unfortunately passed away, and we purchased all 4 of his British sports car that he has restored and tenderly loved. He bought it from his good friend in South Carolina who was the original owner. This car is absolutely over the top fantastic. As nice as the top of the car looks, the things that really impressed me were the underside, the engine bay, and the attention to details. It is wearing its original sheet metal with no evidence of any accident damage or rust- EVER! This garage kept car was the perfect candidate for a light restoration, but because the restorer enjoyed making everything new, he has done a complete restoration with all new suspension, brakes, chrome, rubber, interior, top, bare metal re-spray, rebuilt engine, transmission, rear end, new tires, new chrome wire wheels, etc. This car still has the original windshield washer plastic bag, which is almost unheard of and it is still supple and holding fluid. During the restoration, the 1974 bumpers, which had a 3×5 rubber bumperette, were replaced with 1973 bumpers. This was not what people call a “rubber bumper” car, rather it was the last year of the chrome bumper B’s. It has been stated that less than 10% of the 1974 MGBs were sold with factory overdrive, and I would say that a very, very low portion of those were fitted with chrome wire wheels. This car was both. The interior is not only beautiful, but was properly redone with factory seat covers and new foams, a beautiful original top, and a stunning dash of which all gauges and switches work as new. These cars are on the upswing in value, and even though many of them were made, very few survived and ever less of those are rust free, accident-free, one owners with factory overdrive such as this. This car is absolutely stunning from engine bay to trunk, from top of bonnet to bottom of the floors. This is THE car you have been looking for. Please call us to discuss further, and to find out how reasonable our price is. Don’t miss this opportunity!

We purchased this car, and was told that it had had a complete restoration that was at least in part done by the famed, Healey Surgeons. This car was beautifully and meticulously restored with a properly detailed engine compartment, beautiful leather interior, high quality paint, and all chrome/rubber/mechanicals fully rebuilt or replaced. Absolutely stunning to look at, and even more incredible to drive. The transmission shifts like butter, and the overdrive is very positive. Hard to beat the sound of the Healey 6 cylinder, especially when blowing through a new stainless exhaust. New chrome wire wheels, tires, fantastic handling, and even a very rare factory hard top, as well as soft top and tonneau cover and side curtains. These cars are extremely difficult to find in restored state that won’t break the bank. This car is being offered at a very reasonable price, with a high level of restoration and dependability. It has been fully de-bugged, and is ready for many years of motoring enjoyment! I personally highly recommend. For more information call Mike Gassman on his cell # 540-649-3000, Mon-Sat 8:00a-8:00p Eastern time.

When the current owner of this fantastic MGB purchased the car, he was aware that work had been done to the motor, and the transmission had been replaced. The previous owner had also purchased chrome bumpers for the car, and after being dissatisfied, had them re-chromed to the brilliant shine they currently possess as well as the following upgrades/modifications: new a-frames on front end, all new wiring, new aluminum racing hood which is 17 pounds lighter than steel, a stainless steel exhaust, all new tires and rims, new convertible top, new top bows, new upholstery, new carpet kit, new 1972 style dash (with glove compartment and console), rebuilt the speedo, rebuilt the front end, new bushings in rear end, clutch has been replaced, wooden wheel, new boot cover, carpeted the trunk, new battery and battery cut-off switch. Since purchasing this car, the current owner has had a new custom tonneau cover (fabricated by Gassman Automotive),  and had a new rack and pinion (installed by Gassman Automotive). Among all of the new items, the car is also equipped with a 4 speed transmission with overdrive and a British-Leyland am/fm radio. The car has been restored, and has truly been taken care of. The car runs and drives exceptionally well. It truly is a great example of a classic B.

Same owner for 37 years and serviced by us for the past 20, this exceptionally dry, super solid car has been used very little by the owner only on nice days, as he has gotten older he has not used it in a while and so we bought it. The car has had a beautiful recent respray with some light personal modifications such as the front bumper over riders, 1275cc engine upgrade from a midget, Weber carburetor and headers. We have just done a complete service to the car, as well as drove it quite a bit and it is really fun, quick, and quite sorted. Car comes with a beautiful top and side curtains and is truly ready to go. Even has the original owner’s manual. This is not the average rusted Bugeye that has been resurrected, rather an exceptionally well taken care of car that has been garage kept and recently has had some cosmetic upgrades. Also fitted with a very beautiful set of 8 spoke alloy wheels and custom knock offs. It drives as good as it looks. Priced for a quick sale. Come and get it!

The car we are offering was sold new in Massachusetts, and within 5 months was moved to California, where it spent the majority of its life. This car has never had any rust or any accident damage. The shut lines on the car are some of the best I have ever seen. One exterior respray done somewhere around 20 years ago, but the car has remained inside. The complete interior was new with proper MB Tex seats, square weave carpets, and all panels were not only replaced, but installed properly and look factory new. The dash has not been replaced, and is in the exact same condition as the parts that have been replaced. All gauges, switches, and electrics on the entire car work exactly as they should. Small indicators of how good this car is, is the fact the plastic heat and defrost switches and knobs are all original, not cracked or broken. The car has a black cloth soft top that is very nice, and a factory hard top which looks virtually new. Opening the doors is like opening a vault. They click shut with the least amount of effort. I don’t know of a vehicle that has wind up windows which work as wonderfully as these. Extremely comfortable car and it is easy to drive, the 230SL automatic utilized a fluid driven system instead of a torque converter, which allows for very positive shifts and if you choose to manually shift it, is very precise and sporty. This car comes with the original rear end assembly, which is a drum brake unit and the gear ratio made the engine rev at almost 4000 rmps at 65 mph. This car has had a 1972 4.5 liter Mercedes rear end assembly bolted in (no modifications necessary) which not only brought the revs to 2600 at 60mph, but also provided four wheel disc brakes. We have changed all fluids, replaced calipers and master cylinder and hoses, installed new tires and a steering idler assembly, as well as a complete tune and service on the motor. This car is an absolute joy to drive, turns many heads and needs nothing!! Our final improvement on the car was to add a bluetooth unit to the Blaupunkt stereo, which allows you to jump in with your phone and turn music streaming on, and take off into the sunset. While we are a dealer, VA #0727, of classic automobiles and have been for many, many years, this car was not purchased for the idea of resale. This is the owner’s personal car, and anything needed to make it perfect has been done. A fantastic car, priced in the real world not auction insanity prices! You will absolutely love it!

One of the cars we just purchased out of a large estate on the West coast, the owner of all the cars was a meticulous mechanic who was very interested in originality, and was very capable of fine tuning to keep his cars in the highest state of readiness for use. He passed away in October, and we purchased the cars from the estate in February.

While cleaning up this car and preparing it for sale, we were continually amazed at how exceptionally good this car is. The photos of the trunk are really representative of how wonderful this car is throughout. Matching numbers head, block, and original VIN plate. This 3.8L engine sounds exceptionally smooth and quiet. Oil pressure is great. No noises or smoking. Clutch is very smooth. Car is fitted with Avon tires on proper chrome wire wheels. Suspension is very tidy, as is the rear end. Body and paint under the rear pan and front pan is exceptional as the pictures show. Upon removing the carpets inside, the original paint is seen clearly with no rust. Underside of the car is exceptionally solid. Trunk, door, and bonnet shut lines are very nice, as is the chrome. The interior is virtually flawless with Conley leather clamshell seats and Wilton wool carpets. The Hardura on the interior and the trunk is flawless. The turned aluminum on the console was scratched, and we replaced this with brand new. We also cleaned the carburetors and replaced the diaphragms in them.

It is very unusual to have the car with the original boot cover as this has. The top, I believe, is original, but the rear window has darkened, and the condition is not representative of the rest of the car. As I write this, we are currently replacing the top with a new one from BAS Jaguar Trim and will also be recovering/restoring the header, straps, webbing, seals, etc. to new factory spec.

Recent auctions are showing an incredible trend for early E-types, and as I have worked on them for the past 30 years I am well aware that most are damaged, non-matching number, rusty cars that have been put back together. Offered for a fraction of recent auction comps.

October 9, 2014:

Last Thursday, the 2nd, the engine was started for the first time. The car was driven on Friday and everything runs great. Watch the engine start here:



October 1, 2014:

The push rods were installed and the valves were set in the engine. Doing so required removing the valve cover, so it was re-painted to make it look perfect. The carburetors are installed and are almost completed hook up. Electronics continue to be assembled. Dave U. is currently hooking up the accelerator pedal into the engine compartment.

September 30, 2014: 

The radiator and many of the engine ancillaries, including air intakes, were installed today. The radiator has recently had a new core installed, and was painted with radiator paint on the core, and semi-gloss black on the rest of it.

September 29, 2014: 

The carburetors are being dis-assembled, cleaned, and rebuilt today, and the rest of the exterior body panels are being taped on the underside (which has already been painted) and are getting prepped for exterior paint.

September 25, 2014:

After the wire harness was installed, the engine and transmission were prepared for install. This morning, the engine was hoisted up, and with the help of 5 people it was installed without any issues. Now that it is installed, all the ancillaries will be installed this week, along with tires and wheels to make the car mobile again.

Watch the engine installation here:



September 17, 2014: 

Installation of the wiring harness continues.

September 11, 2014:

The head shields are installed in the engine compartment and preparations for wiring still continue.

September 9, 2014:

The steering rack has been installed. Mike is currently installing heat shields, and preparing for the wire harness installation.

September 8, 2014:

The front brake and suspension components have been installed. Mike is now plating the original bolts and nuts with our new plating system to keep this car as original as possible!

September 3, 2014:

The frame was painted last week to the highest standards. Yesterday it was moved into the assembly area to begin re-assembly. Today, the rear end has been installed and Mike is installing all the rear brake and suspension components.

August 27, 2014:

The frame sanding was completed, and the frame was moved to the paint booth yesterday and painted green. The suspension parts that were painted last week were assembled by Kenny and are mostly ready for installation when the frame and body is finished being painted.

August 18, 2014: 

As well as the leaf springs, the rest of the suspension and under-carriage parts were cleaned and painted black. The frame was primed on Thursday, 8/14, and it is now in the body shop for final sanding and smoothing.

August 13, 2014:

Because of the high level of quality that this car will be restored to, even the leaf springs were dis-assembled, cleaned, and individually painted before being re-assembled for installation. The concours level restoration is living up to its name with the thoroughness of the body, frame, and parts.

August 11, 2014:

The frame continues to be filled, sanded, and smoothed.

July 30, 2014: 

The exterior body panels have been removed after a final sanding. The inner sides of the panels, including the wheel wells and inside of the doors, as well as the frame are now being filled and sanded. They are striving for perfection in the outcome of this body & frame.

July 14, 2014:

After sanding, several more spots were smoothed with a little more body filler to achieve the ultimate straight body. After filler is applied, another coat of primer will be necessary. The car has been moved to the paint booth, taped, and is ready for its final coat of primer.

May 12, 2014: 

The body is primed and will be sanded again before paint begins.

May 8, 2014:

The body is ready to be primed today!

March 18, 2014:

Body filler is being applied and shaped to give the ultra-smooth effect that cannot be simply achieved from the metal alone. Once body filler is applied to the rest of the panels, the rest of the car will be ready for primer.

February 27, 2014:

Fitting of body panels continues, as the tedious process of alignment is both involved and precise.

February 4, 2014:

Rusted areas of the body have been removed and Mike fabricated new pieces and welded them in. The body shrouds were repaired and straightened, and all panels are being fitted. Assembly will begin soon.

October 28, 2013:

March 28, 2013:

Engine was removed, cleaned, and painted. Body panels have begun to be sanded and are getting ready for primer and paint.

March 4, 2013:

Body panels are being removed for repairs to be made to the frame.

1980 Triumph TR8

Triumph has been sold. Please visit Cars for Sale to view the rest of our available inventory!

Honest, rust free car with an older paint job that has some cracking. This car is one of the few fitted with factory A/C delete. With less than 3,000 cars made, and over 500 of them coupes, the TR8 is one of the next British cars with an American V8 to start climbing the charts. Very nice original interior and dash, and extremely original engine compartment and trunk. Brand new top with zip out window and original boot cover. The car runs smooth as can be, with no noises, starts instantly and is very strong. The transmission shifts extremely well. This is a car with a little paint work that could be a really fun car to own.

1970 Jaguar XKE

Jaguar has been sold. Please visit Cars for Sale to view the rest of our available inventory!

 

I purchased this car from a shop in Charlottesville that was doing some work for the original owner of this car. Approximately 20 years ago, the owner started an insane frame-up, nut/bolt, Concours restoration of his original 1970 Jaguar XKE Roadster with 32,000 actual miles that had never seen rust or accidents. Over a 6 year slow period, the car was completely brought to Concours spec, and has been a multiple winner at various JCNA national events. When I purchased the car, the car had only had about 10 actual miles of usage over the past 15 years, which basically amounted to loading on an enclosed trailer and unloading from the trailer to the show field. I spent close to $18,000 completely redoing the power steering pump and rack, the entire air conditioning system, the entire brake system, and the entire fuel system as well as removing the head and a complete rebuild including silicone bronze guides, hardened seats, stellite exhaust valves, stainless steel intake valves, new springs, and valve stem seals as well as tappet hold down sets and new cam bearings. We also put an improved Kometic head gasket and improved cooling fan, carburetors were rebuild, and fuel pump was replaced with a new solid-state pump that looks exactly as original, as well as new batteries, aluminum radiator, and multiple other things that had wear from time, rather than usage. The car still looks like it was finished yesterday, but it now is mechanically perfect.

This car has the original window sticker and bill of sale, is finished in beautiful white with red leather interior and Wilton wool carpets, with a black proper top. Everything about the car is exceptional and totally show worthy. The car has had about 500 miles put on it in the last year, and has performed flawlessly. Temperature stays where it should. Oil pressure is excellent, and air conditioning is truly ice cold with the improved compressor and R134 conversion. We even went as far as to pay $350 for 2 new NOS vent flaps for the evaporator. This is a no apologies car, yes it is a series 2 and not a series 1, but with series 1 approaching $350,000, this car truly is a steal.

One of the cars we just purchased out of a large estate on the West coast, the owner of all the cars was a meticulous mechanic who was very interested in originality, and was very capable of fine tuning to keep his cars in the highest state of readiness for use. He passed away in October, and we purchased the cars from the estate in February.

This is a very rare opportunity to buy the car you have always dreamed of in the price range you always wished for. Austin-Healey 3000s are normally either complete junk in a field, or fully restored for $125,000. This car is neither, it is a beauitful running car, fully functional, that has had slight dings and doings over the years. The paint is older, but still shiny and very presentable. The interior is new leather seats and carpets, all gauges are functional. Overdrive works beautiful, as does the transmission. We have just installed a new fuel tank, fuel pump, rebuilt the carburetors, and installed a new battery. The car has a very small amount of rust on the inside of both rocker panels, but has no rust on the outriggers. It is extremely solid, with the above exception, and is a car that you would not need to restore to just enjoy. The motor runs as good as any fresh motor I have ever seen. Excellent oil pressure, 170 degrees operating temperature, no smoke or noises. We chose not to restore this car, as there are so many restored cars available, and we didn’t want to take an opportunity away from someone who just wanted an affordable, nice car to drive.

1963 Triumph TR3B

Triumph has been sold. Please visit Cars for Sale to view the rest of our available inventory!

One of the cars we just purchased out of a large estate on the West coast, the owner of all the cars was a meticulous mechanic who was very interested in originality, and was very capable of fine tuning to keep his cars in the highest state of readiness for use. He passed away in October, and we purchased the cars from the estate in February.

This stunning car is finished in Spa white with a striking red leather interior, proper loop carpet, and highly detailed inside as original. Everything operates/turn signals cancel, all gauge read properly. There is virtually nothing you could do to improve the interior.

The exterior is straight with excellent gaps, very nice paint, excellent chrome, and fit of all panels is proper and nice. Upon removing the spare tire lid, you instantly see there is virtually no rust – not even surface. This is what I would call a true rust-free TR3B.

The major difference of the TR3A and B was the fitting of 86mm pistons up from 83mm. Additionally, a fully synchronized transmission, designed for the TR4, was introduced in the last of the TR3s. This car carries both of these, as original, as well as factory overdrive, which is representative of less than 8% of the cars. Also fitted with 60-spoke wire wheels, the car is extremely representative of what a TR3B should be. I have restored, serviced, and judges Triumphs for over 35 years, and I own many myself. This is the kind of car I would be very proud to own. Zero rust in the sills, the rear boxes of the trunk, the floor pans, etc.

When you start the car you hear how incredibly smooth and well-tuned it is. The normal hood vibrations are not there, and the exhaust is actually not grounding out which is extremely rare. Just an exceptionally nice, correct, ready to go, rare sports car. These have begun to increase in value, and are normally in the upper $30k’s to low $40k’s.

We purchased this car, and was told that it had had a complete restoration that was at least in part done by the famed, Healey Surgeons. This car was beautifully and meticulously restored with a properly detailed engine compartment, beautiful leather interior, high quality paint, and all chrome/rubber/mechanicals fully rebuilt or replaced. Absolutely stunning to look at, and even more incredible to drive. The transmission shifts like butter, and the overdrive is very positive. Hard to beat the sound of the Healey 6 cylinder, especially when blowing through a new stainless exhaust. New chrome wire wheels, tires, fantastic handling, and even a very rare factory hard top, as well as soft top and tonneau cover and side curtains. These cars are extremely difficult to find in restored state that won’t break the bank. This car is being offered at a very reasonable price, with a high level of restoration and dependability. It has been fully de-bugged, and is ready for many years of motoring enjoyment! I personally highly recommend. For more information call Mike Gassman on his cell # 540-649-3000, Mon-Sat 8:00a-8:00p Eastern time.

This fantastic example of a 1960 Triumph TR3A had a 7 year, frame off, rotisserie, nut/bolt restoration completed in the recent past. The entire body was stripped to bare metal, and beautifully refinished with extremely nice gaps and dead straight panels. The engine compartment is also beautifully restored and detailed. The frame was sand blasted and painted, every piece of the suspension system was rebuilt and upgraded in multiple places. The engine and transmission were built by Gary Cook, a factory trained triumph engine builder. Many New Old Stock (NOS) parts were used during the restoration, making this car all the more desirable. The interior boasts original leather and rebuilt gauges. The side curtains were rebuilt as well, and a new top was installed. Optional equipment includes Amco wind wings, 8-spoke aluminum spline drive wheels with radial tires, a tonneau cover, and a boot cover. Additional features include all new chrome, new steering wheel, new rubber, new base and clear coat, new brakes, and virtually everything has been restored or rebuilt. The car runs, drives, and looks like new. Over $60,000 was invested into the restoration alone, and this amazing car is available for a fraction of the cost due to health reasons. Needs nothing. Call Mike with any questions.

1956 Ford Thunderbird

Ford Thunderbird has been sold. Please visit Cars for Sale to view the rest of our inventory!

In 1955, Ford began producing it’s newly designed, sporty 2 seat convertible: the Thunderbird. 50 years and 4.4 million Thunderbirds later, this car has built a long reputation of reliability and comfort. When sales first began in 1955, over 16,000 were sold and the Thunderbird was deemed a success. Few changes were made to the 1956 model, other than the optimal upgraded 312Cu. In. V8 motor and it was the first year of 12 volt. Originally, the T-bird was designed as a competitor of the Corvette, but with it’s larger body, sleeker lines, and roomier interior, it was dubbed a sporty, personal luxury car and was loved by the masses.

We just purchased this lovely 1956 Ford Thunderbird while looking for an E-bird for a customer. This car has been privately owned in Virginia for the past 14 years and was previously purchased from the original owner’s estate in Florida. The car shows 44,000 miles on the speedometer and the title, and the vehicle verifies this information. This car was re-sprayed 17 years ago, but looks like it just left the paint booth as the paint is near flawless and the body is exceptionally straight. Much care was taken when painted, as the door jambs are clean and fully painted, as well as the seal around the trunk.  The hard top is in marvelous condition including the headliner which is not falling or drooping at all. The interior has had the carpets replaced, but all of the dash is perfect original, including a full set of working instruments. The door panels in this car are equally great. The motor turning on the panels and the dash adds a very unique touch of class to the overall appearance. The interior is very comfortable and roomy making it easy to get in and out of the car. The photos will show the top in its upright position, as well as the down position. The car includes power seats that make it very easy to put the soft top up and down. The chrome on the exterior and the interior is superb, except for a few minor scratches on the front and rear bumpers. All 5 hub caps are exceptional, however the cap on the spare tire has a small dent. It drives remarkably well and shifts perfect. Brake hydraulics have been rebuilt and the car does not pull at all. A new set of white wall radials has been installed, and therefore the car does not “wander” like most 56’s did. This car is also  equipped with a tonneau cover to cover the interior when the soft top is down. It is also equipped with the 312 Cu. In. V8, as well as the factory engine dress up kit. This car has an NADA value of $89,000 and we are offering the car at a fraction of this value.

After sitting in a barn for almost 35 years, this rare and classic Jaguar XK140 has finally seen the light again. During those 35 years, the motor hadn’t been started and the car had not moved, until Mike bought it. David and Kenny got the motor started yesterday for the first time in all of those years, and life was revived to the car. While it is not in the best shape, with a little hard work, this car could be stunning.
