The car has only had 4 previous owners from new and the current owner purchased the car in 11 years ago in March 2006.
He has spent a small fortune on the car since then and the car has been almost completely restored and includes the following:-

And much much more, but too many parts/works to list here.
All in all, the owner has spent almost £36,000 on this car since he bought it and although its not a concours winning car, it is in excellent condition throughout and drives beautifully and must be one of the nicest examples currently for sale.
It has an excellent Service History file including all Registration Documents, MOT Certificates back to 1974, a few old Tax Discs, invoices dating back to the early 1980's + all of the invoices for the works carried out over the last 20 years and photo's of the Engine rebuild.
We can also confirm that the current mileage of 60,095 is its genuine mileage from new in 1967 and it has covered exactly 15,000 since the Engine and Gearbox rebuild at 45,000 miles in 2006.
The car is MOT'd until June 2018 and is of course Road Tax Exempt as an Historic Vehicle.
