Highlights

- Swiss vehicle

- Three owners from new

- Full restoration, no expense spared

 

This 1955 Land Rover from the very first series was delivered new to the owner in Treyvaux, in the canton of Fribourg, by Lausanne-based SARES. The owner kept the vehicle for 30 years, selling it to a buyer outside of Villars in 1985. Eventually taken off the road, it was again sold 30 years later to a recognized Land Rover expert and enthusiast.

This last owner took it upon himself to dismantle the vehicle, part by part, and rebuild it from scratch. Every effort was made to ensure an impeccable and faithful restoration. The entire chassis and many other parts were galvanised, while the body was taken apart and repurposed to the greatest extent possible. With the exception of the door panels and bulkhead, the vehicle contains only original materials. Even the wiring harness has been redone to appear as it did upon delivery, right down to the colour-coding of the individual cables. The result is near perfection.

An overhaul this extensive could easily be worth CHF 140,000. This is a vehicle that has been fully restored, shaken down and certified as vintage. It is ready to bring a new owner many years of joy and driving pleasure.

 

Accessories:

- Hardtop (mounted)

Description

This first generation Range Rover 3.9 Vogue SEi from 1990 is in an absolutely remarkable state of originality and preservation, hardly found anymore today. The car was driven a mere 51'000 km and only had 2 owners, the first one keeping the car until 2015. The car was maintained and serviced to a level of attention and detail that must be unprecedented. It hardly gets better than this!

Delivered new by Emil Frey AG in Zurich Oerlikon, the car was always serviced by the book at the very same garage. The first owner must have been a very careful and detail oriented man, who took extremely good care of his Range Rover. He kept all the detailed invoices from all the service work he commissioned over the 25 years of his ownership!

Only in 2015 the car came to its second owner, who in turn would like to sell it to another enthusiast, because he himself bought a very early 2-door Range Rover. This Range Rover Vogue 3.9 will provide lots of pleasure to its new owner.

Description

This Maserati 4.7 Coupe is a highly authentic Swiss car, which had only four, mostly long-term owners. It was first delivered via Martinelli & Sonvico in Lugano to the ambassador of Thailand in Bern. After briefly owning the car the Ambassador sold it to a gentleman from Basel, who kept it until 1995. Until now, the car changed hands one more time in 2010.

Thanks to relatively few owners, this Maserati survived in very original condition, still maintaining its first leather interior. But after almost 50 years on the road, it was time for a more extensive restoration than just the regular maintenance work. This task has been entrusted to well-known marque specialist Markus Limacher from Lucerne. He overhauled the engine and all ancillary components, restored the wiring loom and electric components and fitted a complete new exhaust system in stainless steel. The complete body was stripped to bare metal and repainted in its original yellow color tone. During this process all the bright work was re-chromed as well.

A nice history file, the original owner's manual, spare keys and tool set complement the wonderful condition of this car.
