THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD PRICED TO SELL. I am reluctantly selling this beautiful car as I am soon to move house. I have owned this car for the last 9 years and can honestly say it has been a joy. I am only the third owner and even though I've used it sparingly it has started every time. It has spent all its life in the UK and is thus a genuine RHD model. It is registered 1959 and it is the MK1 version but has been upgraded (prior to my ownership) with a MK2 engine (1622 cc) which improves the torque. It sounds and drives superbly.The front brakes have also been upgraded to disc brakes. It stops very true and straight and reasonably quickly. It has a 4 speed gearbox, 5 x chrome wire wheels. The car is fitted with a tight-fitting black soft-top and black tonneau cover, both in good condition. It retains the original cream leather seats which have a terrific patina to them. The sale includes the original steering wheel, a spare bumper and side screens. The pics are an honest portrayal of the condition of the vehicle and I have a video as well, so just email me if you would like to see more. It certainly isn't concours, which would be twice the price by the way, as the bodywork has a few blemishes, but on first impressions its hardly noticeable. This car is certainly not a restoration project but any new owner will want to spend some money on it. Although I would say that is a personal choice as it is ready to be enjoyed straight away. It is mechanically trouble free and I have had a mechanic fix any issues prior to selling. For the sake of transparency I've had a reasonable amount of interest when I started marketing it at £24,000 but on reflection the majority of potential buyers feel they would want to improve the car and so I've now dropped the price significantly to allow for this coupled with the fact I need to sell soon. It goes without saying that this is now priced to sell quick as it really is a steal at this price as it is a very good car and as such I will not listen to any offers. So please no timewasters.
