I have owned this car for around eighteen months and it is only due to unforeseen personal circumstances that the car is now being offered for auction. During my ownership quite a lot of work has been done on the car, but like any 42 year old classic car, there is always further work and expenditure to carry out to bring it up to standard. In my opinion, the car is best described as Condition 2 for improvement, but I would encourage prospective bidders to view the car and make their own judgement as to its condition. The car is sold as seen and there is no warranty whatsoever on it.
The following recent work has been done to the car:
Complete new "Bell" stainless steel exhaust system.
Wheels beadblasted and re-silvered, 4 New whitewall tyres fitted.
New top balljoints, New trackrod ends, New steering rack gaiters
New Kevlar reinforced waterhoses and Jubilee clips, New waterpump and fanbelt, New header tank, cooling system replenished with fresh antifreeze mix.
New fuel pump, New distributor vaccum advance unit, New points, New condenser, New rotor arm.
New chrome door handles, locks and keys.
Most of the above work was completed last year and the car was used sparingly for local trips without any problems. Please note that the original electric cooling fan does not appear to work and I have purchased a new heavy duty electric fan which will go with the car but will need to be fitted by the purchaser. This will be essential to prevent overheating in modern traffic conditions.
The bodywork appears sound for a car that is over 40 years old, the bonnet is good with no visible rot, the sills, floor and bootfloor all appear sound. The doors have been reskinned at some time prior to my ownership. The car looks very nice but the paintwork is by no means perfect and has microblistering and blemishes in places.
The interior is, in my opinion, very tidy for its age with the main areas being sound, i.e. dashboard, seats, headlining are all ok. There are new footwell carpets fitted. There is, however, some minor trim missing, the most significant of which is the radio console which was misplaced by a previous owner. The rubber door seals need replacing and new ones are provided with the car.
The car has driven well on all the short runs that I have used it on, and has completed a 15 mile trouble free run this week but please note that this car has not been used over the Winter months and it will doubtless require some recommissioning and checking over before being put into service. I can arrange delivery by transporter in the UK to be paid for by the purchaser.
