Full of patina, this Irish registered car originated in England. I have the full history of the car. It appeared in an eposode of the ITV series "Heartbeat". It has not had a total rebuild but I gave it a major overhaul when I bought her in 2013 including some body repairs, respray, complete brake overhaul with new parts and silicone brake and clutch fluid. A reconditioned engine was fitted that has now only done 33, 600 miles and a new clutch fitted at the same time. Also at that time an overdrive gearbox was fitted and many extras like spotlights, oil cooler, new carburetor, new starter motor, new alternator and new radiator fitted with everlasting waterless coolant. The underside is 90% original and solid but the small amount of welding done has been done correctly. The bodywork is 80% original. Interior is reasonable but there is a bit of wear and some small cuts on one front leather seats. The back leather seat is okay except for one small cut. I have just fitted 4 new tyres, two new track rod ends and have set the tracking. I will be sorry to see "Elsie" go to a new owner but I am selling all my classic cars to finance a house project. I will deliver to anywhere on european mainland or England or back to Ireland for the cost of travel with no profit price. For sale for €7, 200 or very close offer. This car can be viewed now in Portugal but will be back in Ireland soon once the restrictions are over!

This is a good all round car. It is not perfect as it has not had a full rebuild and requires some small jobs doing. However, it is solid, near rust free and reliable. She is a very rare car with only 82 to be known to be on the road world wide at present. It is a car that draws a lot of attention everywhere you go in it. Can be veiwed in Portugal or Ireland depending on the time of year. Do not miss the chance to exhibit a very rare car at the shows!

Rarer than an Amphicar or series MM Morris Minor.
