This a very original example of the rarely available Austin 1300GT. One of the last of the line, it was registered to its first owner, a lady in Wilmslow, in August 1972 and kept by her until 2007. Between 2007 and 2011 it had a further four keepers and the last owner, from whom I bought the car, owned it from 2011 until 2019. There is a comprehensive history file which details all previous owners and supports the current mileage of 51000. Although MOT and road tax payment exempt there is an MOT until 23rd October 2020. The car is, of course, HPI clear.
The 1300GT is almost certainly the rarest and most sought after of the ADO16 range of cars and it's very hard to find a really nice, original and useable one such as this. It's in its original colour of Limeflower, with matching vinyl interior. The car is structurally very sound and the paintwork, having had some attention over the years, presents very well. The interior is completely original, with the exception of a mock period radio fascia, and is in exceptional condition. The car drives really well with engine, transmission, steering and suspension all working as they should. Even the heated rear screen works!
It never ceases to surprise me just how good a car the ADO16 is, and how much fun they are to drive today, especially in this 1300GT guise!
Please call me, Robin Whittaker, on the number below for more information or to make an appointment to view the car at my dry and well lit premises in Burwash, East Sussex. It really does deserve to be seen and driven, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
Thank you for looking.
