To summarise. this a vehicle where much time & money has been expended.
The car genuinely shines from front to rear. and has just had a full re-polish using Carnuba wax.
I am only selling as I have too many vehicles. and need additional space to store new projects - under cover.
Please. no overseas buyers. scams and non-genuine ebayers
1. Please note that this is the non-overdrive car. as originally supplied and validated by the Heritage certificate; a conversion to overdrive could easily be made with the appropriate gearbox and prop shaft.
2. The chrome wire wheels look better in the photographs than perhaps they are. with the outer rims in excellent condition. and the use of high-quality chrome cleaner should be able to remove some surface rust; however. these wheels are not as immaculate as the rest of the vehicle. and if the vehicle is to be used in concours or equivalent. will require some additional cleaning/restoration.
3. I have not had the time to undertake or complete any under bonnet detailing; hence. the final stage of the renovation would be to re-detail. etc.
Viewing arrangements by E-mail only please in the Berks area.
The final successful bid price will be the selling price and this is not negotiable after the sale. Please do not bid if you are not serious about buying. Buyer to sign 'Sold as Seen' declaration.
Realistic starting price.
I will require a 10% Paypal deposit. within three days of close of bidding. and the balance by cash upon collection.
