  • Now MOT exempt from May 2018 due to new rules
  • Currently the car is turning over but not starting. I've had electrics redone and fuel hoses replaced, but have other financial priorities so I am now selling on this basis with a reduced price. It shouldn't be an expensive fix.
I bought this car in May 2014 and since then a major mechanical restoration has been carried out. The headline is a recon engine, fitted in early 2016 and only done 1,500 miles since.
Key work:
August 2014: new radiator, cooling system hoses and alternator
April 2015: welding, front suspension overhaul, front hubs and bearings
July 2015: new starter motor, fuel pump, handbrake cable, ignition coil
Feb 2016: Reconditioned engine (unleaded), new clutch, points, condenser, rotor arm
March 2016: Carburretors rebuilt
April 2016: Welding
April 2017: New battery, new starter motor
July 2017: new ignition coil, ignition barrel stripped and cleaned, partial ignition system rewire. Oil and filter change.
September 2017: Fuel pipes replaced, new distributor cap, new spark plugs.

That's the good stuff - the not so good stuff is aesthetically it now needs work on the paint, rust repair (superficial) and it needs a new hood.
However I have just bought a house and have other priorities, so this car needs to go to a owner who can look after it properly, something that I can no longer do.
It also comes with a tonneau cover and a spare battery.
There's also lots of history and invoices covering the above work and going back many years as well.
