1993 Lovely, genuine early 500 in “Triple Blue” For Sale
Very nice and useable Griff with a large history file, the original handbook etc and is huge fun to drive and own. The history file backs up the low odometer mileage.
Dark blue body, roof and interior.
This is an honest car - what you see is what you get! The dark blue leather seats have a lovely patina and it is a very reliable car having had some improvements to the ignition system and new fans have just been fitted too.
I drive the car almost every week, weather etc permitting - best way to keep everything in good fettle - and it starts on the button even after a couple of weeks’ break (always kept in my garage) but also has a battery conditioner wired in, fitted in the boot.
The wheels are the original 15” front and 16” rear Estorils, fitted with Toyo Proxes tyres.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of driving a Griffith before, it is a pure, unadulterated experience without any of the electronic “nannies” which dilute driving pleasure in most cars: No PAS, no ABS, no blind spot warnings etc etc - it’s just you, a throaty 5 litre V8, a 5 speed manual gearbox and not much weight to get in the way. A guaranteed recipe for lots of smiles per mile!
One concession to modern life is a recent, new Kenwood head unit which has Bluetooth for phone use and music streaming.
As you may expect with a fundamentally original, unrestored car like this and in the interests of being honest, there are some paint blemishes and some of the interior trim is not perfect. The targa panel has signs of wear in the material (because it’s usually in the boot!) but the folding rear section is good and weathertight and the rear window is clear. The alloy wheels are also not perfect but are straight and true (and could easily be refurbished). The photos do not always show these imperfections up, so please ask for further details if required.
Viewings are welcome and encouraged; test drives ditto, but at my discretion.
Private plate not included but may be available by separate negotiation.
Advertised elsewhere so right to withdraw reserved.
PS as this car is now over 25 years old, I understand it may be exported to the USA.
