An honest, unmolested and genuine example, sound, clean & correct, and we feel that the 99,000 miles on the clock is very likely genuine, although we cannot confirm this. We will be carrying out some re-commissioning and preparation work which will be included within the sale price, or as an option, we can offer the car ‘as is’ at a discount. Comes with a history file which includes various invoices and documents showing that just 6,000 miles or so have been covered since 1985, old MoT certificates, and a complete ownership record. We have just fitted a set of new radial tyres to the car, which are not shown in all of the photos.
