Car History

NB: This car has a rare matching blue metal hardtop valued at circa £450 in addition to the good condition soft-top. There is an extensive file of invoices, photos etc dating from May 1991 (but nothing prior to that). Some notable events include:

1) From 1991 to 1993 the car was owned by a Mr Phillips who lived in Wallasey on the Mersey who decided to ‘restore’ the car. On the 7th Sept ‘93 a Mr Hadden produced a ‘Restoration Report’ which just about resulted in a rebuild of the car over the next 3 years at a cost of approximately £8000 (over £21k in today’s money).
2) The car then went back into Mr Hadden’s hands when another £6850 was spent – mostly on bodywork – by August ’97.
3) We know that the car was still brown in colour up to and possibly beyond Dec ’99 due to invoices from a Mr M Canon based in Derby who managed to spend another £9000 of poor Mr Phillip’s money on work that in most cases duplicates that of Mr Hadden.
4) In August 2001 Mr Phillips had the hardtop re-trimed at a cost of £474.00.
5) In 2003 Mr Phillips had the Cherished Car Underwriting Agency value the car at £14k.
6) In 2005 the car was the property of a Mr R Fennell who lived in Aberdeen who stripped and rebuilt the engine to the tune of £2170. Mr Fenell then kept the car until February 2013 when I acquired it from a dealership near Newmarket.
7) During the spring of 2018 a friend managed to effectively blow the engine up. Over the course of the following 6 months the car underwent a full engine rebuild at Bridge Classic Cars in Pettistree at a cost of £8k. Receipts available.
