Advertising this for my neighbour who's less familiar with the workings of this website than I am...

He acquired the vehicle a couple of years ago but is now struggling to get in and out of it, so has put it up for sale.

It's a solid little car. I'd suggested that were he to keep it, the underside should have a thorough waxoyling as it's a bit 'bare'. By not doing so, however, you can see how solid the underside is from the photos; nothing to hide.

Since he's had it, he's added a fibre-glass hardtop which is included in the sale, though is not currently fitted to the car (it makes it ingress/egress even difficulter).

Being the age it is (i.e. pre- folding top), the hood - which is in good condition - is a bit fiddly and you need to be a camping enthusiast to put it up. Therefore to to enjoy the summer, he's fitted a new tonneau cover, thus making it easier to get in and out but also a bit weather-proof (though it's not seen rain for at least a couple of years).

He's also fitted a new gearbox which cost around a grand, as the old one frequently popped out of reverse and sounded like it was about to explode.

He's had the 1 ¼" SU carbs fully rebuilt and it runs very nicely. In fact when we recently woke it up for the first time this year, it started more or less first crank - even having forgotten to disconnect the battery over the six-month hibernation. It's also had an alternator conversion fitted, a new battery and new sound-deadening/boot carpet fitted.

There are a few minor things which need addressed - the handbrake needs tightened and the rev-counter doesn't work (I will see if I can fix that in the coming days). You'll also see that there are a few places around the edges where the paint is flaking, but nothing structural.

Vehicle is available for viewing in Warwickshire.
