This is a pretty rare car with only 125 extended chassis' having been produced. The ASOC know of only 18 remaining including this one.
Chassis no. 18020
Engine no. L18020
Date of Registration - 06/01/1951
I only have the following history of the car:-
V5 in my name showing 4 former keepers. I never got round to changing the taxation class to Historic Vehicle so the V5 still shows PLG.
An MOT from 1989 showing 23051 recorded miles. The current mileage shows 27092 but there is no way of telling if it has been round the clock or not.
A tax disc from 1989.
I bought the car from a friend in 2005 and he bought the car in 2000. When I bought the car it was running nicely and the body was almost ready for paint. The car has been kept under cover since at least 2000.
As can be seen from the pictures this is a restoration project and a lot of my friends hard work will require redoing. I have recently got the engine running very nicely and it shows good oil pressure. I am running the car with fresh petrol from a can as I do not want to risk drawing muck from the petrol tank. The water pump bearing is noisy. I have the car on axle stands and all gears on the pre select gearbox engage as they should. I have not attended to the brakes so cannot drive the car. The car is very solid and is by no means a basket case. As far as I can see all bits of trim, wood cappings, chrome items are with the car but will require refurbishment.
Please message me if you would like further information or to view the car.
The car will need to be collected with a trailer or transporter.
