Classic Car Auctions says:

 

Rare, round tail light, car offered directly by Jay Kay of Jamiroquai fame...

  • Not only was this Jay's first car, but he also learned to drive in it
  • Bought at just 22,000 miles, he covered over 30,000 in it whilst writing and touring
  • We understand that a lot of his first album was conceived whilst driving this car
  • He sold it to the band's didgeridoo player but always hoped to own it again one day  
  • Jay finally bought it back ten years ago at 57,000 miles and has garaged it at home ever since
  • The intended restoration never got started, however, this is now an opportunity for someone else
  • Described as running and solid, this is an ideal candidate given the topicality of early BMWs
  • Offered at No Reserve, with the cachet of being a seventies BM and rock memorabilia, what a steal...
This car was consigned by Nick Whale. Please feel free to contact Nick on 07831 440148 / nick@silverstoneauctions.com
