If you are reading this then you are most likely already aware of the huge increase in value and desirability of these rare little gems. hence if you are looking for a true investment and/or a fun usable little classic then look no further as the A40 Sports is the car for you.

This particular car is in wonderful condition having benefited from a quite recent restoration. She is very solid throughout and has benefited from some nice subtle upgrades to make regular driving a lot more pleasurable. i. e. . alternator conversion. complete rewire and an uprated 1600 engine.

She still maintains the column shift gear selector.

Interior was also re-trimmed a while back.

As you can see from the photos she really is beautiful to look at and looks just as good in the flesh.

In my opinion she is a good 7/8-10. with just minor detailing/fettling required to bring her up to the top level (if so desired).

 I`m not going to go into too much detail on this one as I know how desirable these cars are and I am more than happy to answer any genuine questions from any prospective buyer so please feel free to ask whatever questions you need to know the answers to - Do NOT assume anything. !!

As far as values go I`m sure you have a fair idea already but I have seen these `sold ‘for as much as £20. 00+. !!!

In fact. every one I have found for sale on various websites have in fact been sold – No matter where in the world I have searched. !!!

I`ve had a quick look on eBay and various other sites and it has confirmed what I already suspected that there are hardly any of these now available for sale.

With the above in mind I think this delightful little example makes for a truly wonderful opportunity for both an investment `AND` for your own enjoyment. but please note. I will not be giving her away as I know how rapidly they are increasing in price and how rare they have become. and if you don`t believe me then please feel free to go check for yourself.

I hope I have covered most things but please feel free to ask as many questions as you like.


Thank you for looking

 

Obviously due to storage of my trade vehicles and the very nature of older vehicles. I would suggest a good service/overhaul of all fluids. brakes. rubbers. clutches. pipes. engines and electrics would be advisable and most likely needed in some cases.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

 

Winning bidder to pay £500 non-refundable deposit via Paypal within 24 hrs of auction end!! Deposit `MUST` be paid PRIOR to collection!! This request is purely to deter the day-trippers. hagglers. re-negotiators and winning bidders who feel by their winning of the auction just puts them in the privileged position of having first refusal with the `option` to buy!! 

 

Obviously a hugh apology goes out to all you genuine eBayers who appreciate. understand and follow the correct ethics of the auction. but as like me I`m sure you`ve had similar frustrations and fully understand the need for my plea.
