Ferrari 250 GTE (1962)
Series 1, matching numbers and fully restored and revised
These days the Ferrari 250 GTE would be considered a modest sales success. Between 1959 and 1963 nearly 1,000 of these cars were built. Compared with current Ferrari sales that may seem quite meagre. The Ferrari 250 GTE was, however, the first 4-seater Ferrari to be produced in large numbers and none the less had a hefty ticket price. The margins were good allowing Enzo to concentrate on what he loved best, and that was racing! The Ferrari 250 GTE Series 1 came on the road in 1961 and has retained her original engine, making it a matching numbers car.
Porsche 993 Turbo S (1997)
Only 186 made, matching numbers and colours
This is the “peak air-cooled Turbo Porsche”. In the late 90’s Porsche realised that due to increasingly strict emission rules the days of the air-cooled engine were numbered. The air-cooled engine formed the foundation of Porsche’s success. You can just imagine the engineers and marketing department were not going to let the moment pass unnoticed. Nobody, however, expected them to quite so thorough. The 993 Turbo S was the last air-cooled Porsche 911 Turbo. Only 186 were ever built!

Chevrolet Master Wagon (1939)
Only 989 made, very rare, top restored
In 1939 Chevrolet decided to offer its clients the opportunity to buy a car with a wooden body; a so-called “Woody”. The Chevrolet Master Wagon was the top of the range model at the time. The idea to use wood in the superstructure was not new. It had been used during the construction of lorries and buses. Towards the end of the ’30s Chevrolet was inundated with requests for a car with wooden coachwork. As the Master Wagon was thought to be very suitable clients were able to order their Woody in 1939.

Bentley Azure 6.75 Convertible (1999)
Stunning colour combination, very well maintained
The Bentley Azure is a luxury convertible by the British prestige Bentley brand. Two generations of the Bentley Azur have been produced, the first in 1995 followed by the second one in 2006. The first generation was based on Ken Greenley’s Bentley Continental R. Greenley was also responsible for designing another reassuringly expensive British car; the Aston Martin Virage. The Continental R stood as a template for the Azure. The convertible design was not carried out in-house but came form the pen of Pininfarina.

Ferrari 328 GTB (1986)
Perfectly maintained, long term ownership, full service history
The Ferrari 328 GTB is a very rare Ferrari. The total production was only 1,344. In 1986 only 373 left the factory in Maranello, thereby establishing that the car is essentially a fairly scarce commodity. The fact this Ferrari 328 GTB has a brilliant “Grigio Metalizzato” finish and wine red interior trim just go to make this an even rarer car. The manner in which this car has been documented and her condition make her unique.

Citroën SM (1972)
Carburettor, highly original
If you happen to dive into the history of the development of the Citroën SM you will discover one thing for certain: a glorious set of circumstances with a fantastic outcome. Citroën had been busy for many years developing a sporty version of the DS. Gradually Maserati became involved in the process and they decided to put a Maserati V6 plant in a front-wheel drive coupé. To accentuate its Citroën credentials they also fitted hydraulic suspension and adaptive, self-levelling headlights.

Volkswagen Transporter Kastenwagen (1970)
Top original condition, only 25.177 kilometres from new
Gallery Aaldering has got another one in! A time capsule from South Germany. This Volkswagen T2 fire engine first saw service in 1977 as part of the Tettenweis voluntary fire corps near Passau. In line with good fire service tradition, an account of all trips was kept up from 2000 to 2017. During that time the car made 375 trips totalling less than 12,500 km. For those with a mathematical mind that is about 33.5 km per trip. It should come as no surprise that for the greatest part of its life the car spent its time in and around the village. The car was mainly used for promotional and training purposes.

Land Rover Range Rover Classic 3.5 V8 (1985)
Mechanically overhauled car
Introduced in 1970 the Range Rover Classic was the first generation Range Rover produced by Land Rover. The first Range Rover came with a 135 Ps (101 kW) version of the Rover V8 petrol engine. The car also has that lovely 8-cylinder carburettor block. In contrast to the norm with current Range Rovers, this one has a manual 5-speed gearbox. It also is the then top of the range Vogue model. The car was initially registered in Modena in Italy in 1985. Since 2008 it has Dutch papers and remained in the same hands for the last 12 years.

Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster 4.7 V8 (2009)
Sportshift, perfectly maintained, low kilometres
The Aston Martin Vantage V8 is a compact sports car made by the British Aston Martin brand. The Aston Martin Vantage was first introduced during the 2003 North American International Auto Show. Whereas the Detroit exhibition showed the concept car, the production model was introduced at the 2005 Geneva Autosalon. With the V8 Vantage, Aston took its first steps into a market it had not been active in before. The compact V8 sports car was a roaring success for the British brand.
Triumph TR6 (1976)
Well maintained, nice drivers condition
This 1976 Triumph TR6 has been sourced in the United States. In the past the car had a re-spray and the paintwork remains in good condition except for some minor blemishes. The neat bodywork has straight and well aligned panelwork. The chassis is also straight and sound. Recent chrome bumpers have replaced the American rubber ones, they and the wheels are neat. The black hood is in good used condition, shuts securely and of course is undamaged. A tonneau cover is there for those sun-filled days.
