Not your usual Barn Find. The car hadn’t been used since 1983. Hasn’t turned a wheel since then other than to be loaded and shipped.

Originally a RED car its had two colour changes to Silver and White over the years it was in use. The shell is in great condition, all original with no damage or repairs and has good panel fit all round.

Is all original fitment except the JPS period correct Steering Wheel (see photos).

The original matching number engine is not currently fitted to the car but is dismantled for rebuild (all parts are dry stored for inspection).

The chassis appears to be fully serviceable (and galvanised).

Its low mileage with low previous owners car with good provenance.
