we have owned this car for 22years (since 1997).
it had a ground up rebuild in 1990 to 1995
all wood bodywork was replaced, engine completely overhauled, and the complete interior professionally trimmed (seats in red leather.
all weather equipment manufactured, tonneau , hood and side screens.
(apart from the tonneau cover, these have had very little use and are as new)
the car has always been kept inside, but due to loss of the inside storage space 2 years ago, it has been kept under cover in a car port.
this has led to some light rusting on the bonnet and wings (no holes or serious damage) also the wheels.
being totally honest, the car needs a re spray and wheels re powder coating. The chrome and the bright work are good.
the ca. Starts and drives very well and is used on the road at the moment.
