SUMMARY

Wonderfully original Mk2 that was recently featured on BBC in the hands of 'Chatty Man' Alan Carr. Offered without reserve.

DESCRIPTION

  • Launched in March 1965, the Mk2 benefitted from a more highly tuned engine, through a revised camshaft design, a water-cooled intake manifold, and tubular exhaust manifold, increasing the power to 67bhp at 6,000rpm
  • Improved interior trim with redesigned seats and carpets replaced the rubber floor mats
  • This attractive example is finished in British Racing Green with a contrasting white hardtop and is fitted with overdrive
  • Very good interior in Black Vinyl piped in white with its original Motorola push-button radio and a smart Moto-Lita steering wheel
  • Purchased by a gentleman (photo in 1965 with car file) when it was five months old and passed down through his family until 2018 (further details in the car's history file)
  • Apparently the car was driven by Alan Carr in a BBC feature (details in file) 
  • The paintwork on the bonnet is a little patchy and the last MOT ran out in June 2022, however, this is a delightfully original, low-mileage example of a topical 1960s classic
