OUR CLIENT
Brian has owned the car for over 50 years. During its heyday, Brian enjoyed using it to go on tours with his friends and then used it to drive during work. His intention was to give the car some much needed TLC and bought some parts for it unfortunately due to his busy work schedule he was unable to complete the work and now understands it needs a full restoration. Brian has said he will kindly give the new owner the parts he has bought for the car.

Please watch the video to hear the work that has been over the years and what spare parts Brian has for it.

Brian will be really sad to see it go but as hes got older, he realises that he doesnt have the time to restore such a loveable vehicle. He wants someone that will cherish it and hopefully take him for a ride out when it is beautifully restored again.



THE EXTERIOR
Brian has had this car locked away for some decades now. As you can see from the photos and videos there is rust around most of the car. We believe that someone who is extremely passionate about restoration projects will be able to see the potential this car has. Please see all the photos and videos to see what is salvageable. We have produced an extensive video that meticulously goes over the whole car so the new owner will know exactly what work needs to be done.

Wheels & Tyres
The car is fitted with the original wheels that can be restored upon initial inspection. Brian has told us that he has a full set of new tyres available that is part of the purchase.

Bodywork
Please watch all the videos carefully. There is notable rust corrosion on the skirts and rear of the car.

Paint
We recommend the new owner brings this car back to life with a respray once restoration of the body has been completed.

Glass and Trim
A new windscreen and hardtop will need to be commissioned due to the degradation of the parts.



THE INTERIOR
The interior will also need a full restoration some pieces may be salvageable. We know the new owner will get so much satisfaction by undertaking such a project. We will be watching to see how they get on and cannot wait to see the final piece in its full glory.

Seats and Carpets
We would recommend a full restoration of the seats and carpets.

Dashboard
The dashboard seems to be in reasonable condition and we would recommend restoring this piece. Keeping the original dashboard in will sustain the character and originality of the car.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick
The original steering will look great once cleaned and restored. There is no gear stick at this point in time.



MECHANICS
As this is classed as a barn find, we were unable to film Brian in our usual On the Road video. However, with the extensive media that details everything wrong with the car we are confident that any potential buyer will see the undoubted promise that this project has.

Engine and Gearbox
The car is unable to start due to the poor condition. Please see the photos and videos of the engine and other parts to see what you would be able to keep.

Suspension and Brakes
Brian mentioned in the Meet the Owner video that he has some brake parts that the new owner can have as part of the sale.

Other
As this car hasnt started for many years, a lot of the parts will need to be completely replaced. A full restoration is needed Brian and all of us at Trade Classics are desperate for this to happen.



HISTORY
The car is MOT exempt due to its age. Brian is the sole owner of the vehicle but has not used it much since the mid-80s.

We have asked Brian for a full list of parts that were meant to have been used to restore the vehicle.
