Lot 123

1967/1992 Aston Martin Ulster Evocation

Lot details

Registration No: OG 3899
Chassis No: 6HN3115973
MOT: July 2024

  • Extensively reworked NG TC Roadster with numerous bespoke touches
  • A real head turner
  • Powered by a 1.8 litre MGB engine allied to four-speed manual transmission
  • Recently MOT tested and fitted with a new battery following a period of dry storage

Taking its name from the initials of company founder and aeronautical design engineer Nick Green, NG Cars began operations in October 1979. Stylistically influenced by various pre-WW2 Aston Martin and MG designs, the New Milton, Hampshire-based kit-car manufacturer made extensive use of MGB running gear for its model range. A response to customer demands for a more rakish two-seater, the boat-tailed NG TC was introduced in 1981. Based like its siblings around a sturdy low-slung box-section chassis equipped with independent coil and wishbone front suspension, a ‘live’ rear axle, rack and pinion steering and disc / drum brakes, the newcomer could be had with a choice of MG 1.8 litre four-cylinder or Rover 3.5 litre V8 engines. Bodied in a mixture of fibreglass and aluminium, the NG TC boasted a power-to-weight ratio not dissimilar to that of the contemporary Morgan Plus 4 and Plus 8 models.

Taking its inspiration from Aston Martin’s iconic Ulster competition cars, ‘OG 3899’ was a real labour of love. Although, based on a NG TC, the two-seater has been customised to such a degree that it is, in effect, a bespoke creation. The dashboard has been festooned with auxiliary instruments and brass-ringed switchgear, while leather straps adorn the tail and bonnet (with the latter being augmented via louvred brass panels). Prominent Lucas headlamps and a side-mounted spare wheel add to the 1930s vibe. Correctly registered with the DVLA as a ‘NG TC Roadster’, ‘OG 3899’ bears a brass plaque which reads as follows: ‘Hebert Gilbert Car – ‘Gertie’ – Ride The Wind’. Fed by larger than standard twin SU carburettors, the 1.8 litre MGB engine produces a notably raspy exhaust note, while the presence of an alternator and brake servo are welcome nods to modernity. Recently recommissioned and MOT tested following a period of dry storage, this striking Ulster Evocation is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document and sundry paperwork.
