New boot lock with dust cover sourced and fitted.

There are photos of previous ownership and work undertaken.

The car has never been modified and all parts are present and to original specification.

The car is now 46 years old and there are a couple of age related marks; a slight dent towards filler cap although very small and hasn't bothered me too much.
The headlining would benefit from being replaced just to brighten it up.

The car has never really done a great deal over its life as can be seen from its history. Its been kept to original specification and attracts a lot of admirers. I acquired the car intending to do much more and since having children I’m averaging 300 miles per year if I’m lucky and with two seats someone always loses out.

I’ve come to the conclusion I shouldn't keep it any longer as I'm simply garaging it and someone else should now enjoy it.

The car is located in Cheadle in Staffordshire.

Any questions please get in touch, please note price is negotiable.
