Vehicle History

Remarks

The car was a company car for 5 years from 1985 to 1990 (M&R Martini & Rossi Ltd), before being purchased by an SD1 fanatic, Mr. Brendan of Bridgewater who was an SD1 club member and has owned it owned it ever since. Unfortunately, the majority of the history is not present but the car is original and in the sort of condition that reinforces the mileage. Some old MoTs and invoices are present along with handbooks. Would suit a collector.
