Whilst Mk1 Roadsters are occasionally still seen on the road, the early 60's cars are getting rarer and really good original spec, non-heritage body shell examples even scarcer. This standard engine, overdrive car regularly cruises at 70mph with lots of power to spare, has looks that still turn heads as often as it did back in the 60's and 70's and is one of the most reliable and easy to maintain historic classic cars around. Sympathetic upgrades have been an electric thermostatic fan, fuel filter, 12V battery with negative earth conversion, and chromed wire wheels. It's a matching numbers car with Heritage Certificate and comprehensive history file. A ‘Back to Metal’ refurbishment & respray in 2008 remains in A1 condition taking the car to showroom condition ready to show, club run, cruise, compete, holiday in or just polish and admire! A great investment at £15,600 or vno – Private Sale due to new project – email for viewing appointment – located in East Sussex.
