Body & Paintwork

The car has been painted in its original colour previously to a very high standard, and has a great finish to it.

No ‘peppering’ or ‘stonechips’ to the front of the car, still looks very fresh indeed.
No corrosion is present on the car at all, all wheel arches are 100% solid without any signs of any corrosion.

Inside the boot, and inside the engine bay is without flaw, and the car would be right at home at a car show, due to the fantastic condition of the car.
The underside of the car is very good, with no welding having ever taken place.

The roof is in exceptional condition, with no damage and no leaks.

This has clearly been a very well loved car which has been used in summer months only.

Interior & Trim

Interior is immaculate, with all seats looking as new…No rips, tears, holes or even wear on the bolsters!
All door cards are in perfect condition, dashboard is without fault.

Carpets have no staining, or tears, great condition all round, and always receives compliments with regards to the ‘brand new’ looking interior!
All switches and gauges work as they should do, including the MFD.

The windbreaker is present, and without any damage, and instructions are also in the history file.

The only modification to the interior of this vehicle, is a premium Wharfedale stereo unit.


Starts perfectly every time, with the first turn of the key.

A very quiet, and reliable engine which has been well serviced throughout its life.
We have had our mechanic check over the car, and he was very impressed with the condition and found no faults at all.

As you would expect with the very low mileage, it drives like a new car, and pulls perfectly well throughout the rev range, with zero smoking either on idle, or whilst being driven.
The gear change from the automatic gearbox is smooth, unlike so many others.

An absolute pleasure to drive.

Running Gear

Wheel are without any damage, and look fantastic, with all tyres being near new.

Brakes work perfectly, and are surprisingly good for a classic car, the steering is nice and tight with good feel.
The suspension has no unwanted noises, with the uprated shock absorbers looking almost new.

A very nice car to drive, which will attract many admiring looks and comments.
