The most original car I have ever seen outside of a museum or concours event. Just in from the USA we purchased this car from the private collection of a dot com millionaire. He's downsizing his collection because the market has downsized his business. He bought it in 2012 and did less than 100 miles in it.
Prior to that it seems to have had the same owner since 1971 when it had recorded 62,500 miles. We have a full service record from that date to this. It includes details of every drop of oil added and every nut tightened. Highlights include:
Engine rebuild @ 62,730 miles
Gearbox rebuild @ 70,645 miles
New clutch @ 83,358 miles
New brakes @ 83,358 miles
There is no rust anywhere. No sign of any patches, rust repairs or poor paint. Some of the parts like the seal between the bonnet and scuttle are still retained by the factory style solid rivets.No sign of any paint border in these areas. We could be looking at the original paint?!
It has a hood and a tonneau cover, both in excellent condition. We have just serviced her and re-paint the wheels.
