I bought this car as a project and returned it to the road on historic registration but due to too a lack of time and dwindling enthusiasm it has to go. It is a SWB model that is fitted with air conditioning (not working) and electric windows (all working) which I believe is quite rare.

The good:

The car drives very nicely on the road

Twin carburettors overhauled

Fuel tanks rust proofed. new senders fitted

New electronic distributor fitted

Braided brake lines (excellent brakes)

Rear seat leather replaced

Excellent headlining and timber dashboard

Differential pinion seal replaced (no further leaking)

Radius arm bushes replaced

Steering rack bushes replaced

Rust removed from boot. rear valence panel and right sill

Windscreen and rear window seals replaced

New tyres

Near new exhaust

The bad:

The body needs resprayed.

The engine blows smoke (although it still passed a roadworthy inspection) and consumes oil. The cylinder compressions are: 138. 42. 28. 40. 22. 30 and all come up about 8 psi when oil is added to the cylinder. I have a spare cylinder head that will accompany the car as it was the next thing I was going to replace.

The car is being sold as a project. although it is driveable. with a low starting price and no reserve. The historic registration is non-transferrable and as such it will be sold as is. unregistered with no RWC.
