 An early 4¼, in good, sound condition, running and driving nicely, correct and attractive, with a neatly folding hood which drops below the waistline, giving a handsome and clean appearance. The deep red leather interior – although very useable – could do with some improvement, and the paintwork too is not great, but again, very useable, as is the whole car.  An opportunity to acquire a decent drophead at a sensible price. Just completely re-wired in correct, cotton-covered cable, re-commissioned, fitted with a new stainless steel exhaust system and MoT tested until August 2013.

Chassis No. B19GP.                               Reg No. CXU 304.                            £95,000.
