  • Chassis Number - Do you know the exact car you're looking for?  Maybe it was yours once, or you just know the one you want.
  • Special details - Anything else that might help us match your expectations.  Perhaps it's a special bodied, one off or prototype model.

Here are some examples of vehicles we currently have listed on our books.  This is just the beginning, as nothing is out of the question.

Mondial T Cabriolet

Only 52 RHD Mondial T's were manufactured during all years of production and 45 of them were sold in the UK.  This is one of those UK delivered vehicles.  It has covered approx 42,000 miles and comes with an extensive history file covering previous owners and service. 

The original books and tools are also included in excellent original condition. There is a possibility of a notable original owner which is being researched. The current owner of the past 2 years has fastidiously maintained the car including all required major/minor services, brake upgrades and full clutch assembly replacement (plate, disc, release bearing and carrier). A recent health check was undertaken at the end of the last season by Maranello Concessionaires of Egham, Surrey.

  • Year - 1991
  • Make - Ferrari
  • Model - Mondial T Cabriolet
  • Motor - 3.4L
  • Exterior Colour - rosso corsa
  • Interior Colour/Style - crema leather w/ red carpet and black dash top

Britalia has prepared an "evidence package", required for compliance to the Australian Design Rules (ADR) as a SEVS listed vehicle and can assist with the import and compliance process should the buyer wish to export the vehicle to Australia.

400iA 

Approximately 184 RHD Ferrari 400s were manufactured between 1979 and 1985 and this is one of the UK delivered vehicles.  It has covered approx 69,000 miles and comes with an extensive history file covering all previous owners and all service from new.  The original books and tools are also included in very good original condition. 

This 400i was manufactured by Ferrari as the result of a special order by Maranello Concessionaires for use as their personal car for 1980.  As a result, it was registered to them as the first owner. The current owner of the past 5 years has been undertaking a complete restoration of the car including a complete top to bottom rebuild of the engine, with new cylinder liners, pistons, rings, vale guides, custom made stainless steel exhaust valves and everything else the engine could need. The front suspension and steering has also been the subject of the same level of work with all bushes, seals and flexible joints replaced and surfaces re-plated, painted and/or coated.  The rest of the cosmetic and mechanical effort would take up pages to describe in detail.

The former Finance Director of Maranello Concessionaires has confirmed the early history and all the work on the car will be reviewed on completion by Maranello's before the car is released onto the road.

  • Year - 1980
  • Make - Ferrari
  • Model - 400iA
  • Motor - 4.8L
  • Exterior Colour - anthracite
  • Interior Colour/Style - black leather and carpet with wood centre console switch panel

Being a pre-1989 vehicle, this one does not require an ADR evidence package, although there will be certain requirements to meet for Australian compliance. Britalia can assist with the import and compliance process should the buyer wish to export the vehicle to Australia.

S3 2.0 Spider

The third version of the original "Duetto" and the second Kamm tail, this is an early S3 model.  It retains most of the features of the S2 while adding some of the S3 updates to the tail, bumpers and front spoiler. This is a RHD UK import conversion with a correct RHD dash in excellent condition including no cracks and an un-warped glove box door.  The brakes have been completely replaced including new discs, pads, callipers, flex and solid lines.  The suspension work includes new shocks, bushes, springs, ball joints, check straps, bump stops and spacers. All rusted panels have been replaced with new ones, not just repaired, and the motor is currently being rebuilt along with the gearbox.  The overall restoration list is extensive.  It has covered an approx total 172,000 miles and comes with an extensive history file covering previous owners and service.  The original books and tools are also included in good original condition.  The current owner has undertaken the restoration work almost continuously since purchasing the car and will continue so the buyer can receive a vehicle they can be proud to own and enjoy immediately.

  • Year - 1983
  • Make - Alfa Romeo
  • Model - S3 Spider
  • Motor - 2.0L
  • Exterior Colour - light blue metallic
  • Interior Colour/Style - dark blue vinyl w/ blue carpet and black dash top

Being a pre-1989 vehicle, this one does not require an ADR evidence package, although there will be certain requirements to meet for Australian compliance. Britalia can assist with the import and compliance process should the buyer wish to export the vehicle to Australia.

Morris Mini 850

Being a 1963 model, this vehicle is an early example of the Australian Minis assembled in the BMC site at Zetland, NSW.  It is currently undergoing a full mechanical restoration including a newly rebuilt numbers matching 850 motor, a Guessworks magic wand gearbox, full suspension and brakes .

There is a hand made burled walnut dash in the shape of those found in the Mini Deluxe, but finished to a Rolls Royce standard.  The car is also fitted with a Benelite grill complete with blanking covers over the light holes.  The interior was replaced several years ago but, while clean and correct for a British Mini of the era, is not correct for one from Australia.   

The overall restoration list covers many years and is ongoing.  This Mini shows approx 60,000 miles and the condition of the motor on disassembly and inspection supports the mileage indicated. There is also a good history file covering previous owners and service and the original books and tools are also included in excellent original condition including the warranty book with the original owners details, warranty cards, etc. The current owner of 16 years has cared for and maintained the car continuously, entrusting it to third party mechanics on very few occasions, and will continue to do so.

  • Year - 1963
  • Make - Morris
  • Model - Mini Minor 850
  • Motor - 850cc
  • Exterior Colour - light blue
  • Interior Colour/Style - light blue/grey vinyl w/ light blue carpet and a wood dash

This vehicle can be exported to any destination with little or no restriction. Britalia can assist with the import/export and compliance process should the buyer wish to export the vehicle from Australia.
