This is an excellent example of an early BN1 which over the last 30 years has been restored and improved to a reliable and desirable drivers car.
Built in November 1953 this is one of the earliest cars in Australia. It comes with original features such as split dash, adjustable steering column and fixed seats.
The car was first restored in late 1980's with subsequent improvements including updated 4 speed gearbox, 5 stud rear axle and larger carburettors. The car was painted primrose yellow at that time. Under the current ownership the car has had a total engine rebuild, updated the front drum brakes to disc brakes, had steering and shock absorbers reconditioned and electronic ignition fitted.
The interior was recently retrimmed in black leather with red piping and the body repainted.
The modifications to this car are tasteful and authentically in period. It has correct badging, driving lights, wood rim steering wheel, 60 spoke chrome wire wheels, louvered bonnet and strap and cold air box.
The car drives superbly, accelerates willingly, steers accurately and stops confidently. It has been in current ownership for 21 years, regularly serviced and improved to provide hassle free and enjoyable classic car ownership. The car is on NSW conditional registration which is not transferable. History file over the last 25 years is comprehensive with known history since 1960’s.
