Description

Chassis No. B130EY
A very smart example, nicely and cheerfully painted in a handsome shade of deep red and black with excellent light tan leather interior, piped in red, which harmonises well with the exterior. A great deal of restoration work was carried out in the 1990s, and this has now matured well, resulting in an appealing car, driving nicely and with a useful history file. This includes many invoices for maintenance and repairs from the 1980s through to 2021. There are also other documents, including an MoT certificate from 1960, the first year in which they were issued! Complete with tools in the slide out under-dash tray, fitted with an excellent set of Avon radial tyres which suit the car particularly well both visually and from a driving point of view, serviced and MoT tested until August 2023.
