"Rachel" is sadly for sale! A beautiful example of this rare, sought after sports saloon. One family owned from new and then myself. V5s present and copy of original buff log book. 54874 miles. BMIHT certificate. Original drivers handbook. Receipts and all MOTs from 2008.
Finished in gleaming Bermuda Blue. One or two bubbles of paint to bottom of boot lid and drivers door but nothing that detracts from the lovely appearance of the car. Solid body which is rust free underneath. MOT and tax exempt, but I put her through an MOT on 17/05/19 and she passed first time with no advisories.
She was fully serviced at that time and all chassis and suspension joint greased as well. Engine starts first time with a little choke, which was new in May. Engine runs smoothly and there are no oil leaks. Gearbox, exhaust and back axle are all good. Radiator has been flushed through with new anti freeze added and thermostat checked. It had a new water pump less than a thousand miles ago.
All chrome is good with only slight pitting to rear bumper. There are original period wing mirrors and working period Lucas spot/fog lamps.
5 new Dunlop radial tyres were fitted 200 miles ago in May. Spare unused. Wheels have correct chrome wheel trims and Riley hub caps.
Interior is in Powder Blue with new correct deep pile blue Riley carpets. Seats are leather and in good condition for age. They were "Connolised" in May. Drivers seat though comfortable and well sprung has the stitching coming away at back where it meets the backrest. Drivers seat has seat extensions so that there is more seat travel for the taller driver. Seat belts are blue inertia reel fitted in May, with the originals in boot with some other spares. Door cards are good as is headlining and front and rear parcel shelves. All glass in good condition and all window winders work as do door locks. All instruments and controls work.
Burr Walnut veneer to dash and door cappings all good but the lacquer is cracked in places on door cappings but the veneer underneath is all good with no water damage.
The car has been well maintained and cared for all her life with no expense spared. She drives beautifully and having only bought her in May I find that due to a change in my circumstances I very reluctantly now have to sell her.
She is priced to reflect her originality, condition and scarcity. Sensible offers will be considered. More details etc available on request.
