The paintwork will need to be taken back to gell-coat and fully re-sprayed. It sustained damage to the drivers door hinge and off-side wing which has been repaired but needs final finishing. I would definitely recommend viewing but I will try to describe it as well as I can. The car has undergone a lot of work mainly to get it running and to pass MOT. The inner sill seat belt mountings have been replaced with galvanised ones and the seat belt plates have been replaced with stainless steel plates, also the four inner wheel arch covers have been replaced. All bolts which have been used are stainless steel. The carbs were stripped and all jets cleaned, the oil and oil filter have been replaced, the distributor cap, leads, points and plugs. I refurbished the fuel tank and she fired up and runs well with a small amount of smoke as she has not been run for years. The front brakes were freed up and the master cylinder sills replaced. Some of the metal brake pipes were also replaced. The servo was dismantled and cleaned but may need a new diaphragm. The clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder are new and it goes into gear easily, the gearbox and differential are good. The engine has a slight oil leak coming from between the head and the front cover. The radiator had a small hole which I repaired. The engine runs up to temperature and the cooling fan cuts in and has no issues with overheating at all. The number plate is non date related and very valuable. 'Reg Registrations' have valued it as a return to me at £1,400. I would assume they will advertise it for £2000+ The Exhaust has an aftermarket stainless steel rear box - it sounds good! but it may not be to your taste as it's not original. The interior has new sound proofing, brand new carpets and the seats and door cards are in excellent condition. The dashboard has its usual patina. The roof lining and the tops of the rear panels are damaged but I do have a new headliner and covering for the side panels which will come with the car. The current roof lining is white, but what I am supplying is black (to match the rest of the interior). Overall the chrome is in fair condition. The rear bumper has a small amount of rust but the front bumper is clean. The front windscreen chrome is in very good condition and is not the plastic type. The electric windows work but very slowly and will need looking at. The front windscreen is slightly cloudy and has a small chip at the top right out of the swept area, which does not affect the MOT. The rear screen rubber is new. The headlamp pods are fixed in an open position and as it is the non fail safe I've had to wire the side lights and headlights to the fog light switches in the car. To get it through the MOT. The original switches are in place and do work, all you'll need is two vacuum pods and some of the piping for the headlights to operate normally. New parts Galvanised sill member kit (fitted) Stainless steel seat belt plate kit (fitted) Brand new headlamp bowls and headlamps (fitted) Brand new O/S/F lamp Brand new N/S/R lense All new anti-roll bar bushes Spark plugs, points, leads, distributor cap rotor arm and coil new Dynomo new regulator new clutch mastercylinder new clutch slave cylinder Overall this is a driving restoration which will need a good respray to get it to a show condition. I have tried to describe the car as best as I can. It will be available to view at the Enfield Car Pageant of Motoring (25th - 27th May). Any questions please call me on 078382020020 or message via ebay.
