Exterior

Glass:

Remarks

Driven daily through the summer and kept under cover in winter. No major faults externally, has obviously had a body restoration although i don't have that paperwork from a previous owner - but visibly the exterior is in good condition.

Interior

Carpets:

Seating:

Headlining:

Dashboard:

Running:

Remarks

Driven daily and never not started, not had any problems with the engine apart from having had some mixture / timing work last summer.

Transmission


Gears:

Clutch:

Drive-Shaft:

Remarks

Gearbox undoubtedly needs work - grinds into gears and selector is loose. It's been that way almost as long as i've owned it for 2.5 years so continues to be drivable, but clearly is going to need some gearbox work soon.

Running Gear


Axles:

Remarks

Nothing noticeable

Electrics


Minor:

Major:

Remarks

Had some minor electrical work fixed last year with a few loose connections in the fuse box, but nothing major. Everything working as it should, apart from the cigarette lighter / power socket.

Vehicle History

Remarks

As mentioned, i've driven this car as my daily driver for 2.5 years and have loved it. It really turns heads in the street and has given me almost no problems in that time. Very likely time for some gearbox work and so time for the next enthusiast to look after her!


Restoration Notes

Body restoration undertaken c.15 years ago, and complete new interior fitted c.5 years ago.
