Technical specifications, photos and description:
1977 Austin Allegro 1500 Vanden Plas (automatic) – 2208 miles from new!
Supplied and registered new on 17/11/77 by Elliott's Of Bideford. The car has covered just 2208 miles from new (two thousand two hundred & eight miles). Elliott's of Bideford have carried out all servicing and MOT's right up until the car was put into dry storage twelve years ago. Elliott's Garage is still going. now a Citroen franchised main dealer. have supplied a letter stating this and confirming the mileage as being correct. The car has many of its old MOT's and tax discs as well as bills for work carried out. It even has the original brochure and Vanden Plas owners' handbook. The logbook states that the car has had one former keeper. but both keepers were from north Devon and both used Elliott's for MOT and servicing.
The car itself is in fantastic condition as you would expect. The inside is like new with the seats and carpets in near perfect condition. The chrome is in very good condition and both front and rear bumpers are straight and true. The bodywork is also in fantastic order. the car has been garaged all its life and the wings/inner wings. sills etc are in beautiful condition. I don't think the boot of the car has ever been used. The carpet is perfect and underneath the carpet the boot floor is exactly as it was the day it left the factory. Under the bonnet again the car is totally original and proper. There are a couple of ‘blemishes' in the paintwork but to be honest these were probably there when it left the factory.
This really is a unique car. It is 36 years old of course so isn't absolutely perfect but it really does look fantastic in my opinion and with that mileage the engine has barely been ‘run in'. Interested buyers are encouraged to view the car. near Exeter in Devon. as you are bidding to buy. It's being sold with NO RESERVE as we need the space here now. Please email any questions and I'll answer them as quickly as I can. Zero feedbacks please email before bidding. and UK bidders only please. £100 PayPal deposit within 12 hours of end of auction the rest cash on collection please.
If you require any photographs of specific areas of the car please email and I'll take some.
Many thanksOn 03-Jun-13 at 16:28:55 BST. seller added the following information:
I just re-read my listig and i notice that I forgot to mention how the car runs and drives.
The engine runs sweetly and is perfectly quiet. the gearbox engages smoothly there are no noises that there shouldn't be. Its all as you would expect of a car with this mileage to be honest. I have added a picture of the engine bay as well. Apologies for forgetting to mention these things in the first place.

Heool wherever you are; I offered gdp not usd (but Elliott's have no memory of your car). Some means of contact directly would help, if only its actual availibility. If sold, removing the advertisement would be a blessing. Thank you.
