This car is located in Alderney in the Channel Islands, but would be delivered to Poole Harbour.
It is a complete car and used regularly although it doesn't do a lot of mileage as our Island is so small and we have a 35mph speed limit.
This car comes with soft top, hard top, box of spares and tonneau cover.
I have had this car 8 years and I use the car daily in the summer months when it is dry.
The photos perhaps make it look better than it is. Since I have had the car I have put new calipers on, new brake shoes, servo, stainless exhaust, carpets, tyres, welded the underneath, put one new sill on, front shocks and sprayed it using aeresol cans. The mileage is probably incorrect.
With the exception of the temperature gauge all instruments work
The engine always starts on the button and oil pressure when warm is circa 40lb/sq in. There is only slight blue smoke which is good for the mileage of the engine
Although we do not have MOT's here the car had a road worthiness test prior to going back on the road. This was carried out by a former MOT tester.
The car needs further work, to get it to a lovely condition which may include an engine rebuild at some time in the future, work on the body to get a decent respray and the seats refurbished
There is some rust to the body shell under the rear bumper and other odd spots, and there is fibre glass in the front wings.
The car is registered here in Alderney but I do have the UK log book for it and I do not think it was ever officially exported from the UK. However, there would be no import duty or VAT as the car is over 50 years old
