Single family owned from new, with only 28,950 recorded miles on the clock. Subject to a full and comprehensive restoration and rebuild in the early 1990's (at a cost of £40k) and based on a brand new Martin Robey supplied body shell, full engine rebuild by Daimler V8 engine guru, Russ Carpenter, full respray (including underbody protection and powder coated suspension) a full re-wire and re-chrome and a new Connolly Leather re-trim by AS Pickering's in Bradford. All the woodwork has been superbly re-veneered in walnut by Silvercrest Woodwork and Design in Iver.

The car has had sympathetic modern upgrades to include:

- Stainless Steel bolt on Wire Wheels
- Hi-Torque Starter Motor conversion
- Modern electronic ignition distributor
- Electro/Hydraulic Power Steering system upgrade by MC Wilkinson

Has just a full Service and re-commissioning work at a marque specialist alongside being given a new MOT, passing without advisories. Supplied with a large and detailed History File, original spare wheel, tools and 2 sets of keys.
