1973. Green with tan interior. 125bhp pi (CR) engine.
Reliable and presentable car that drives well and comes with lots of documentary history. Dry stored. Heritage certificate.
Recent MOT. Only advisories being a light oil leak from the sump/oil filter and slight play in the bearings & tie rod ends (new replacements for which are included, but haven't had the time to fit them). Recently installed new Halfords battery.
Much money spent by previous owners to rebuild the engine/gearbox, overhaul the chassis, respray and upgrade the car including an Aluminium fuel tank and telescopic shocks. Lots of spares and accessories with the car, too many to mention individually, but include: tonneau cover, soft top cover, full indoor car cover, spare fuel injector, Stainless steel wheel trims, fiberglass wheel arch inners, numerous engine bits, seals and trim.
The engine is strong and lively once it's warmed up and the gearbox is rifle-bolt precise. The lovely Mallard Green paint (replacing the original Mimosa) is generally in very good condition, although showing the usual scattering of small stone chips along the sills, arches and front valance. No bubbling or notable rust in the body panels. Chrome is very good, with only some minor pitting and a small bubble on one of the rear bumper sections. Chassis is straight and solid. Hood is in good condition, free of rips and stains and the rear window plastic is clear.
Reluctantly selling as I'm lacking the time to properly enjoy the car. It might not be a concourse winner (although it could be with a little work!), but it is a well-loved, well maintained and straight car that will make an excellent daily runner that's full of character and always puts a smile on the face.
