A particularly handsome car, in correct, honest and very sound condition, the doors closing with a lovely click, and perfectly aligned, which is always a good sign in terms of body structure condition. The paint and interior are both authentic, showing age, useable and appealing. Features include a full set of 6 Ace wheel discs, including those fitted to the twin side-mounted spare wheels, with a matching set of six new tyres and tubes fitted just a few miles ago. With an earlier owner for over 30 years, perfectly useable just as it is, perhaps with some improvements along the way. The engine was recently (2013) thoroughly overhauled, with new all new main and big end bearings, new pistons & liners, cam followers, etc, etc, and a new clutch. Offered serviced, prepared and newly MoT tested until October 2015.

Chassis No. GHG20.                                                         Reg No. DL 9939.                                           £35,000.
