The car is completely standard and has only ever where possible had OEM parts used.
I have always carefully warmed the engine up and have always changed the oil & filter at max 1500mile intervals. The engine is in fantastic health.
Full service history to 75k from when on I maintained the car myself (I am a qualified technician). The all important valve clearance checks have been carried out 4 times since 75k with the last clearance check (including new shims) at 105500.
All electrics work perfectly including the AC
Interior is in excellent condition, the paintwork regularly treated to Autoglym HD wax.
Just a couple of minor blemishes (size of 5p coin) to front ns door corner edge and rear os wheel arch.
The car has benefitted over the last 20 years from regular under body treatment including brake lines and removal of sill covers to check/re-protect the sills and floor. As such the car runs its original pipework, has had no welding (nor does it need any) and passes its mot each year without advisory.
If you've read this far you already know what a rare and unique car these are.
I am in no great hurry to sell, not interested in swaps or px thanks.
The car was featured in classic cars magazine a few years ago for a "4 up and fast" feature, I have copies of this with the car.
Spare wheel unused, original build signature under front bumper.
Not a museum piece but instead a well loved example ready to hit the road !
Car currently in storage but can be viewed at weekends in SE London.
Call for more photos !
