The car comes with a small history file with details of previous owners and lots of old MOTs. A heritage certificate is also included in the file.
The car was restored some years ago. It still retains original pre-1964 features such as a floor start button and floor mounted headlamp dip switch, 10 position chrome window sliders, centrally hinged sun visors. The car also has a Feb 63 dated wiper motor, and its Triplex glass dates correctly for the May 63 build date.
The car was featured in a BBC documentary with Dominic Sandbrook, called 'Dominic Sandbrook, Let Us Entertain You'. Series 1, episode 1.
