SUMMARY

This car has formed part of an extensive collection of British and European Classics and your inspection is encouraged. Offered with No Reserve.

DESCRIPTION

  • In recent years, this car has formed part of a large collection and has received little or no use, so an element of recommissioning is to be expected
  • A wonderful opportunity to acquire one of these rare T1 saloons
  • Initially registered on the 07/09/1973 to the first of five former keepers
  • Just 1,711 T1 saloons were built compared to 16,721 Silver Shadows
  • Finished in an attractive shade of Larch Green with a tan leather interior
  • The car requires some cosmetic attention as well as a general mechanical recommissioning
  • An ideal base for a restoration, the odometer indicated some 86,223 miles at the time of cataloguing
