Far from showroom/concourse condition, it needs TLC.
I acquired this vehicle in early summer of 2018 with the intent to fully restore it, however due to other commitments, I am not able to see it through and thought it is better that someone else has a go! You are welcome to come and inspect the car prior to bidding.
It drives, has MOT. It is a genuine Campaign edition and is in the rare Lhasa Green. It has the original green tinted windows and it's chassis number is the WVWZZZ17ZEW###### to help you establish that it is a genuine Campaign edition. Recently I had put in a new battery, alternator, water pump, cam belt, fan belt, sunroof, sunroof and window seals, thermostat, radiator, thermoswitch, heater blower, heater matrix, tailgate seal. The Pirelli original wheels have been restored back to factory standard and using the original colours. It has lots of paperwork from the previous owners. Interior whilst not perfect, is in a good condition generally. Has the hallmark green tinted windows, grille, sunroof and P Slot original wheels (recently refurbished). Not a stolen recovered record when I checked HPI.
It is not the original engine that came with the car but a later one with hydraulic tappets. The mileage is over 183k (but milometer must have been removed). Body work will need work in a few places. The campaign leather steering wheel wasn't there when I got it, and I was going to put one on but couldn't find but it has the standard one. It has had over 10 owners from new.
This is a 36 year old car and so it's good to put things into perspective.
As it stands, I have 3 other cars and so really don't have the space for this anymore and it was so much fun driving it during the summer. These cars are quite rare nowadays and the campaign editions were very limited. I have seen others advertised and they are in better condition - but those ones are not perfect either. A very solid one will fetch £20k and so this could be for someone who wants to restore it and has the means to do so knowing that they are highly sought after particularly in the Campaign and in this colour too.
