CCA Condition Report
Paintwork and chrome are presentable with original looking patina, but a repaint would freshen it up. The underneath is very solid with only minor repairs carried.
The headlining is in excellent condition, the seats and door panels could do with tidying but are useable and presentable.
Engine starts and runs very well. New piston rings and big end bearings replaced in may 2011 (invoice for £1075) The engine bay is very neat clean and tidy.
Drives well but has a slight clutch judder when reversing.
The car has been well maintained and in lovely condition underneath.
Everything works even the radio lights up
There is lots of paperwork with the car including photos and daily running repairs in diary form. Also old mots and a partial trace of old owners from dvla
