The previous owner states (in his own words) he purchased the car from a friend 11 years ago, it had been in storage for at least 30 years, possibly longer. He undertook the rebuild over around a 10-year period, paying attention to items that would make it more useable on modern roads, specifically for touring. The 5-speed modern gearbox (Toyota Supra) is a vast improvement over the original, as are the front disc brakes, upgraded ignition and cooling systems.

This car is refurbished to a high standard with road use and touring in mind. It was never intended to be concours, its for driving and enjoying. It starts first time every time and feels taught and together. A very solid and sound car that can be used immediately and enjoyed to the full.

A desirable, refurbished example, original UK car with large folder of bills and documents.
