SOME BRIEF INFO FROM PREVIOUS OWNER
Chris [the reg keeper before me ] was a personal friend of the previous owner[J G] who had a collection of 29 cars.Chris also managed the collection together with a couple of mechanics. Chris's name was on the V5 only in order to effect the sale following the death of JG. After the family decision to sell the car it was re-MOTd just prior to advertising in June 2014.
The following is a brief summary from that “for sale” ad and answers to my questions prior to purchase.
Full service history upto 2006 . We serviced the car in January 2014
Replacement starter motor fitted at that time . Also two new tyres.
Unbelievable torque, all gear changes as they were when they left the factory, engine whisper quiet, no smoking overheating or noises
Perfect wedding car – ready to go
Kept in a private collection until recently [Jan 2014]
Original launch photo included.
I'm now only selling myself as i now have purchased a smaller classic car that will fit under my car port [limited width]
