Ultimate Wall Art

Is this the ultimate automotive related wall art? We think it could be AND it’s for sale!

Vintage Automobilia are delighted to offer for sale this full size replica Ferrari 250 GTO nose on behalf of a valued client and VIP collector. 1 of just 2 pieces made and the only example finished in colour to a concours standard (the other one you may have seen as a patina prop at Goodwood revival) fitted with lights, grille & badge. An amazing opportunity to purchase a homage slice (literally!) of a motoring icon.

Please contact us for further details and price.

Buried Treasure!

Here at V.A. we love the hunt for those elusive items.

We were recently approached regards the purchase of this rare early oil cabinet top enamel sign, which was found a few weeks ago by a homeowner just 10 minutes away from our Devonshire base, buried in their back garden! With the house itself being over 60 years old, who knows how long this beauty had been hidden underground! The enamel finish has survived remarkably well with good colour and relatively minor damage overall.

Now cleaned up and available for sale, see ‘Signs’ page for further details.

Shell Jug Finds New Home

A superb and early 1920s black colour Shell oil pourer from our own collection has found itself a new home. Snapped up by a regular valued client and major UK collector who saw it on our Facebook page before it had a chance to hit the website sales pages. We’ll be hand delivering this one shortly along with some other items. Plenty of interest in this rare pourer, we look forward to hunting down another one for the next collector.

Avery Pump Returns Home

We are delighted to have been able to bring home this early electric Avery Hardoll 298 Pump this week in its original National Benzole logos. One of the first pumps we ever purchased! It served from new outside a cycle shop in Surbiton and has had a varied life since going into preservation. We have a few little jobs to do and it’ll be ready for display again.

Vintage Automobilia at Goodwood Revival

We were honoured to be able to supply a pair of glass globes to Themed Garages for the Goodwood Revival 2018. A last minute set change required two pumps to be re-liveried and globes sourced. These glass reproduction globes had previous names removed, were delivered and then painted by on site sign writers just 48 hours before the gates opened!

They looks stunning. It was a pleasure for us to be of assistance. As always a fantastic weekend and we look forward to next years event.
