This car is in wonderful condition. Prior to us selling it 7 years ago it had ££22. 00 spent on assorted parts of the mechanics with particular attention to the bijur lubrication system & the suspension/steering components. At the same time new leather gaiters were commissioned to cover the leaf springs which were removed from the car & re-tempered by Fiennes Engineering.
Upon arrival in Sweden the car joined a prominent collection where it was sparingly but regularly used. We just transported the car back from Sweden via the Gothenburg ferry. It is now in our workshops being serviced & prepared for sale. A new clutch is being fitted as the old was slippping slightly & near the end of its useful life.
The exterior of the car is finished in Prussian blue over black & looks distinguished indeed. The paint work is all in fine order & polishes up to a deep lustre. The 4 tyres are all excellent & the balance weight covers have been redone in German silver.
To the interior is blue leather. again in very very fine condition. Matching blue carpets add to the pleasant ambience of the cabin. The dash is of highly figured walnut & is a particularly fine example. A modern heater has been discreetly fitted under the dash where it is unobtrusive. whilst exuding creature comforts. Likewise a single rear seatbelt has been fitted to allow safe use of a child seat to the rear. Both these features could easily be removed if not desired.
The engine bay is clean & original with the exception of a non period coil. A compression test on the cylinders showed excellent results. Oil pressure runs at a high 28PSI once warm & the water temperature at a steady 70 to 80 degrees.
Where this car really shines is the driving experience. She starts readily & drives with a taut supple ride that belies her age. The steering is precise & sharp with none of the wandering one associates with more tired examples. Indeed one really has to drive this car to then have a benchmark as to how good these cars can be when correctly fettled & sorted. The rear axle is silent & it will drive at 60-70 MPH in an un-flustered manner.
All in all a really together car in very very tidy condition. without being "spray booth" fresh. All the major work has been done to the car allowing the new owner to drive & enjoy it with no looming bills.
