Very original car, looks great and drives well, but will need attention to bodywork longer-term.
- Rostyle wheels
- Tax exempt
- Current MOT (from March 2020)
- Service records from 1973 to 2007 and 2014 (when I purchased it) to present
- Current mileage is not original. Looks to have passed the 100,000 mark in 1984/85
Bodywork mostly sound, but with some corrosion issues as detailed below.
Mechanically sound and drives well, but would benefit longer-term from upgrades to gearbox and rear differential.
Brake servo unit replaced in December 2019
4 new tyres plus tracking and steering rack serviced in November 2019
‘C’ Service in March 2019, plus:
- Halogen headlight units fitted
- Fuel gauge sender unit replaced
- Temp gauge replaced
Timing chain replaced March 2018
Gaz rear shock units fitted April 2016
Bodywork in decent shape for age, but attention needed to corrosion on: tailgate; around scuttle/front windscreen pillars; offside door; beading on front and rear wings, rear valance.
Bonnet is relatively new, roof and body panels mostly in pretty decent shape, but poor colour matching on offside front wing (respray carried out by a previous owner).
Offside quarter-light frame is also bent and could do with replacing (I’ve never bothered as it’s a bit noisy but doesn’t leak).
Both front seats and the rear seat are in need of refurbishment and the carpets and offside door card are fairly shabby.
Overdrive operational but switch a bit erratic (most likely corroded/loose connection)
