Remarks

Door cards reboarded and are as new. Seats in very good condition, showing only patina commesnurate with the car's age. Headlining and carpets very good.

A DAB/Bluetooth stereo system in a period-sympathetic housing is fitted. Everything works except the electric mirrors, which just need wiring up to the switches (door cards were fitted to a wedding deadline and have not been off since).
