The car had a full restoration in the early 90's, and was then mostly trailered to shows. It is mechanically sound, has good oil pressure and is very original apart from a stainless steel exhaust and a spin on oil filter conversion. The car drives well and does not use any oil.
There are a few imperfections on the bodywork, but still looks good.
I have owned the car for 5 years, and replaced many parts, the carbs have been rebuilt and it has a new battery. The car has just had a full service.
It will come with a lot of spares, jack and starting handle, and a comprehensive file of receipts and information dating back to 1990, and a British Motor Industry Heritage Certificate.
During my ownership I have taken the car on frequent trips to France to such events as the European Event of The Year, Classic Le Mans and Circuit Historique De Laon.
I am driving the car home from France on the 6th/7th April, after a short holiday and the car can be viewed form the 7th.
Please feel free to contact me for any information.
