Interesting and well fettled roadster. just sailed through its mot. offered at a very realistic start price.
I have owned this vehicle for 3 years during which time it has lived in the optimum storage conditions of a large airy garage in southern Spain. The car has returned to UK for a couple of months each summer. nbsp;having made the 1700 mile each way journey to Scotland entirely without breakdown. In short this is a reliable car!
Before my ownership the car was owned and cherished by one family being passed from father to sons; it spent some time in Northern Ireland and was reregistered at some stage.
The car is very very solid and i have never found any significant corrosion at all. The paint is not as good as it looks in the photos. There is a dent on a wing. some bubbling over a rear wheel arch and various touch ups here and there. It is. I think. very presentable as is. The sills were done years ago-before my time-and whilst the structure is excellent the work resulted in poor door gaps both sides.
The car drives superbly on 4 good vredstein tyres. The all important overdrive is fully functional. The seats have been re-done and are smart and most comfortable. The engine is strong and runs about 55 lbs at 3000rpm. the points have been replaced by the electronic system and have given no trouble in 15k miles. I have been very disciplined about 3000 mile oil and filter changes with the correct 20/50 mineral oil. The car is fitted with the correct chromed luggage rack. The spare is excellent. The engine compartment very clean and generally original. I have fitted an uprated electric radiator fan controlled by a switch from the cabin. All instruments work. the fuel gauge. however. shows just over half full when fully filled and the tank still has a good deal of fuel left when showing empty. The car is in a good state of tune and achieved 37 mpg on last years run from Granada to Edinburgh!
I have always driven the car sensibly and sympathetically having owned classics for the last 40 years
