Members’ Classifieds

If you would like to place an advert on this page, please get in-touch with our website editor, Rob (contact details in the sidebar), and he’ll get it published.

The advert will remain on the website for three months after the date of publication and will then be removed. If you have success in selling or acquiring your items in the meantime, please let us know so that we can keep the section relevant and up-to-date.

If after three months you wish for your advert to be re-submitted, please contact Rob again; if this is the case, perhaps you could think about altering the asking price, and possibly submit further photos to enhance the listing and boost your chances of attracting a buyer.

If you are not yet a member, feel free to use this facility to advertise all things Mayflower, but a donation of £10 to the club would be appreciated (cheques made payable to TMC, and sent to the editor; address available on request). This will help in our quest to keep these magnificent cars on the road.

Good luck!

Selling due to lack of time

Update: Price reduced from £595 to £395 (no offers), due to illness.

Alan is having to sell his Mayflower as he no longer has the time, nor good health, to work on it anymore. It is definitely a project! He describes it…

“Spare or repairs.

1951. Complete. No documents.

Good chassis. Engine free and has compression. But no time to get running.

Sills & some floor rotten. Included are 3 photos, Lee has around 20 if you are interested.

£595 ono.”

Californian’s friend’s Mayflower

Update: The asking price is curently $7,500 OBO. More details and photos available either from Rob (website editor) or from Frank directly.

Frank has contacted us from California in the USA, on behalf of a friend who wants to sell his Mayflower:

  • The car is an early 1950s model, which he is having to sell as he is about to spend his retirement (or at least 10 years) touring the USA in his motorhome.
  • As it is a Californian car, it has zero rust; truly zero!
  • It has been partially “hot-rodded”, but can be returned to standard.
  • It is fitted with a Mitsubishi 4-cylinder engine and transmission.
  • The rear axle is a 2-speed Volvo unit – again it is prepared to bolt right up to the standard springs and mounting points; it requires nothing more than just unbolting and bolting the old one back in.
  • Front suspension has been 100% bead-blasted and powder-coated black.
  • All chrome has been completely re-done, and the body was stripped and is in grey primer ready for colour coat.
  • It currently sits on a rolling bed for ease of moving; if someone was interested, it could be put on full suspension to get it moving.

Mayflower project for sale

From the seller:

“Triumph Mayflower/Herald project for sale. Due to ill health I’m having to sell my Mayflower project. It’s an early, small rear window model from 1950. The car is complete BUT the engine has been removed having seized. I intended to replace it with a good 1200 herald engine. This has been done by a couple of club members and it is a very satisfactory conversion. The car will need new sills and wing bottoms fitting, which are supplied. It has a very good underside – no holes. It will need some restoring and bits re-fitting and head lining etc. It seems to have had recent brake work as there are many new bits. I would like around £650 for the car and £250 for the herald engine. Please see attached photo.”

Looking for a Mayflower needing restoration

A non-member, or should I say future member (hint, hint, Christine…) has contacted me to place this advert for a suitable car:

“We are looking to buy a Mayflower needing restoration, this being for use at my son’s wedding next year.

The finances are tight, but fortunately he and his brother are both excellent mechanics and welders, so restoration is not a problem.

We are in Norfolk but willing to travel reasonable distances.

Many thanks,

Christine”

Long-term Mayflower admirer looking for a rolling vehicle

Colin, a relatively new club member, is looking for a Mayflower after 60 years of admiring them. He is looking for one in “reasonable condition and up-and-running, a rolling restoration, or with room for improvement, so-to-speak”.

He is prepared to re-commission a vehicle from long term storage, as long as it is complete and sound. He says that he doesn’t have time for a full restoration but would consider something that needs a ‘little fettling’.
