Purchased in 1980 by the renown Maxi collector Dr Goodfellow of Leicester as one of the last Maxi mk1s made. He had 6 Maxis and 9 houses. This was the one he was keeping for the next life, professionally stored since 1983, I purchased the vehicle with 2,500 miles on the clock in February 2016.

The seats had been covered, and it had been heavily Zeibarted. It was in an 'as new' condition. I have put on a new exhaust, tyres, battery etc and taken the mileage up to 6000. It is a 1750 HLS model with a unique walnut dashboard, MGB instruments and even a rear wash/wipe. The car featured heavily in the recent 'Leyland Legacy' article written for the Car and Classic magazine.

The term time warp is an over used one in classic car adverts, but this one even smells like a new car. It runs well and is faultless, It would suit a museum or serious collector. It will qualify for historic vehicle status in April. I will be sad to get rid of it but just have too many cars to store. I don't have to sell it so please save mine and your time by not coming up with any offers or trade ins. This car will amaze and convince the first viewer. If you want the best Maxi in the world - this is it.
