Bought by the vendors father in 1964; this is a low ownership car with two prior owners befroe the current family acquired it over 5 decades ago. The car was supplied new to a lady living in Eaton square. The car then followed her out to wales when she moved out of town.
Coachwork is a drop head coupe by Hooper. By the 1990's the paint was getting shabby so a full respray was undertaken. At the same time new green hide was installed to replace the cracked original hides. It has now had a chance to build up a pleasant patina rather then presenting as brand new.
Also in the 1990's a major engine rebuild was undertaken. Since those times the vendor informs us that the car has covered jsut a couple of thousand miles seeing little use other then brief runs to keep the car in fettle. New fuel pumps have just been fitted as the diaphrams on the originals had hardened & gone unserviceable.
Last year the moths had finally made the hood lining too far gone. so a new black hood & lining was fitted. Indeed any jobs needing done to the car have always been done to keep the car in fine running order. The car indeed runs beauitfully & has the feeling of being a low mileage chassis giving credence to the 90. 00 odd miles indicated. Certainly since the 1960's the car has covered sparse miles. This is a prticularly original & unmolested car retaining the original finish to its woodwork etc & not having been tarted up under the bonnet.
