Here I have on offer another fine car. please check my feedback I pride myself on an honest detailed service and description.

This car has been subject to a detailed. high quality restoration throughout.

I will do my best to give you the maximum detail. however. there will be no better way of judging the quality of this car than coming out for a detailed inspection and drive.

What I can tell you.

SPP 200J was first registered in Aylesbury. Buckinghamshire back in April 1970. On 6th March 1975 the car moved to Guernsey in the Channel Isalnds where it remained until June this year.

There is nothing in the way of any detail for the first 20 years of the cars life. however things may come to light in due course.

At some stage in the early 1990's the body shell was subject to a full restoration. this involved it being shot blasted. primed and painted. this remained completely covered with cloths in a heated room right up until 2012.

in 2012 my friend acquired the car. which in principle was the shell with "bits and pieces" as you would expect the shell was unmarked. when the soft dust was removed. the car was shining throughout like new. not only is it a rust. rot and weld free example it is clearly a paint job of the highest standard throughout.

The car remained garaged throughout 2012 and everything was put together to give us what we have today. There is a replacement. fully serviced and restored engine. the engine number has been updated on the Guernsey log book. the car has a vast number of new parts. all of the chrome was replaced. the interior was replaced. there are new tyres. switches. brakes. etc etc. The vast file shows many invoices from the early 90's and then a huge amount from 2012 onwards.

To this level the car starts first click of the key and drives beautifully. I presented her for an MOT in June and she went straight through without advisories.

The body is stunning. I am not a concourse car judge. however there should be next to nothing to bring it in line. everyone who sees it admires it.

Ignore the number plates. this is the Guernsey registration number. I will pop to Peterborough next week. I will be given a new tax disc. plate authorisation for SPP 200J and the V5 will follow usually within a few days.

In my ownership the only points worth a mention are some pitting to the rear number plate lamps and that is all I can see.

The underside of the car is equally stunning and I invite any inspection.

Another nice touch (not shown in any photos) is a lovely classic picnic set with original knives. forks. cups etc. This was clearly with the car and would be a fantastic supplement for the shows.

This is a true useable. appreciating classic. The original radio is installed. however. there is no aerial fitted.

The chassis number is GHD5/206591 G. the engine number is 18V780 H7127. it has the four speed box fitted.

 

You can certainly help me along the way with further information which would be most appreciated.
