I have owned this car since 1987 and it now needs to find someone to get it back on the road where it belongs.This is a true limousine with division and occasional seats as it is a Chalfont and not a York which was also a six cylinder18hp.The front seats have been re upholstered in Connoly leather hide in as close to the original colour and trim as possible with the rear seats still original. The roof lining has been replaced in West of England cloth, again, in as close to the original as possible. Water has got in at the back window causing some damage but the "sunroof" (smokers hatch) never leaked ever!The engine has never failed apart from a water pump leak on a return camping trip to Cornwall.It can be seen 12mins in and again 26mins in Ripping Yarns Season 1 Episode 2-The Testing Of Eric Olthwaite with the number plate clearly in view as the Mayor's car - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYpsz2eAKOsThe headlamps fitted at the time were wrong but the car is now fitted with correct ones.It has also appeared in the Ruth Rendell's thriller A Dark Adapted Eye - Episode 2 at 34mins into the TV adaptation and several times afterwards. Again with the number plate clearly in view - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoK9X8_7hPQIt is an incredibly dependable family car as well as being used extensively for weddings, films and advertising. It was started recently but has not been on the road for many years and will need a full refresh before venturing onto the road again.Any questions please ask as this is full of potential for the new owner.
