This is a South African imported car with all UK duties paid and NOVA paperwork is present, as is the V5. The car was restored around ten years ago and would benefit from a bit of T.L.C on the paintwork but it’s an excellent base for somebody that wants to “tinker” to make perfect.

The car is available to view and purchase “as is” at very close to the asking price. The vehicle has a UK  M.O.T and is registered for use on UK roads.

Due to the climate in South Africa the main items that need replacing for a UK M.O.T are the rubber bushes which dry out and crack.

The car is MOT exempt but for safety purposses we have put it in for an MOT.
MOT expires 21/06/2019

The car is located in Nuneaton, Warwickshire.

We have spent £3,500 in the UK putting right those items that were needed for the MOT and various other parts that we decided the car would benefit from. Such as new plugs, engine oil and filter.

I’ve spent a couple of days using a mild cutting paste to bring the paintwork back to a deep luster.

It’s not perfect but there isn’t much to do to make it a really good useable classic.

The colour is very difficult to describe. In certain lights it looks like a deep chestnut. In other lights it looks Plum and in bright sunshine there is a hint of purple in the metalic paint.  Whichever colour you describe it as a gorgeous colour. The first nine photographs were taken after a simple was. The others were taken on or after 18th September.

SOLD We’ve priced the vehicle to sell. £17,500 OVNO
