Vehicle History


Car purchased as new from Colliers Birmingham by my father. When he died suddenly in early 1997, ownership transferred to my mother who has had it regularly serviced, taxed, insured and MOT'd every year as necessary. The car has been garaged throughout and has only been driven a handful of times each year.
