ORC Testimonials
John & Peter Burton, UK:

When ORC advised us of the value of our ex-Tony Rolt Jaguar MK VII ‘LPH 5’ we didn’t believe we could achieve such a figure. But ORC not only pulled it off, they also achieved a world record price, selling the car to JD Classics. It has been a regular on the Mille Miglia ever since. This is just one of a number of cars ORC has brokered for us over the years, and we have always been very happy with the results achieved.

Julian Seddon, UK:
It all started with a Lindner Nocker Low Drag E-Type that I was looking to sell. I was lured by a mouth-watering photo of an XKSS, on the ORC website. Roy ‘moved on’ the Low Drag at the sort of speed one would expect of it, and then I had to man up and purchase the XKSS. He put an irresistible deal on the table and I took over what was a jewel of a car. A series of weekly telephone calls followed and soon developed into a ‘Whats What’ of classics for sale and as a result I acquired ORC’s Lister Jaguar, one of the four Sanction cars that Brian Lister built. After a while I was tempted into selling the XKSS, as ORC had a buyer in the wings, and I was happily smooth talked into what proved to be a very good deal. The Lister followed suit shortly afterwards. To me, Roy is more than a broker. He and I have frequently talked cars that we might acquire, on an unending to and fro of telephone calls.
Always friendly, very knowledgeable and someone to do business with.
Diego Ribadeniera, Ecuador:
I have purchased a variety of cars from The Old Racing Car Company, since 2011, among them a 1954 Bentley R Type Continental; a 1966 Jaguar Coombs Mk II (in which we did the Tour Auto); a 1927 Bentley 3/4.5 litre Speed Red Label (in which we did the Mille Miglia) a Jaguar MK II race car and a Lynx C-Type… and the experience has always good. Besides getting an accurate description of the condition of each of the above cars, which to me is most important when buying vehicles of different vintages and histories covering many years of use and different levels of restoration, all transactions have been made easy and pleasant by Roy who is always willing to help in any way. I will continue to do business with ORC in the future with total confidence.
Joost Vreeswijk, Holland:

The C-type received a lot — and I mean a lot — of Swiss TLC over the last few years and drives superb!  It has also been a regular feature of the Lonville Classic since the Rally’s inception in 2009. Surely there’s no better way to explore the Swiss and Italian lakes of Lugano, Como and Maggiore!

Roland Wettstein, Switzerland:

From the very first contact to finalizing of the sales contract, we experienced professionalism on a very high level. Offering customers a fantastic infrastructure for negotiations, between dealer and buyer, makes it worth visiting ORC. The fact that we had the opportunity to buy one of the most iconic MG K3s was a thrill to us. We are now looking back after 1 year of ownership and a view entrances at historic racing events in the UK, France and Switzerland. Having made the right decision to buy the Parnell MG. We highly recommend ORC to customers who are looking deeper into buying a desirable historic automobile.

Kay Petersen, Germany:

About six years ago I found your web site and you sold me the car of my dreams, my C-Type. I bought the car from photos and trusted you. What a joy to deal with you and find a car delivered which was even better in reality than on any picture.  I will meet you sometime and say ‘thank you’ in person. Maybe at Goodwood Revival this year?
