The ultimate Q car.
First registered in May 1963 with five owners, one of whom was a large country estate in Hertfordshire. This was the Butlers car and used to go to collect provisions from the village.

I bought her in 1989 and then commenced a four year restoration which included the fitting of a Fiat 2 litre super mirafiori Twin cam engine and five speed gearbox. The van was totally dismantled and rebuilt and I have a photographic record of this, the paint was changed from dark green to Almond green and the interior was fully upholstered in Wilton carpet and Jaguar XJS seats in a sage green.
Only used sporadically over the next 30 years, so in 2018 the car was re-commissioned again with a massive and comprehensive service at a cost of over £3000.00 and has only done less than 1000 miles since. On the rolling road the engine is still producing 115BHP.
Although the car looks absolutely standard it goes like a rocket ship, comfortably cruising at 75 to 80 mph and will top out at over 90 mph.
I love this van and it brings the most amazing smile to everyone who sees it, a very reluctant sale as I am reducing my collection.

Available to view and test drive near Chepstow.
Sensible offers please, I would hope it’s worth £10k plus which would be a third of the cost of a new restoration.
Please contact Richard Tyzack
