BRAKES WORK WELL, STEERING IS GOOD, JUST NEEDS SOME LIGHT RECOMMISSIONING DUE TO LACK OF USE REALLY

THE INTERIOR IS GOOD, SEATS ARE USABLE, BACK IS LIKE NEW! USABLE DOOR PANELS ETC, DASH IS VERY TIDY ETC, MOST ELECTRICS WORK APART FROM THE DRIVERS WINDOW.. THE HOOD MATERIAL COVER IS IN EXCELLENT ORDER AND THE REAR LID LIFTS AS IT SHOULD .. THE HOOD MECHANISM HAS BEEN REPAIRED AND NEEDS TO BE REINSTALLED AS SHOWN IN PICS, BUT LOOKS TO HAVE BEEN IN WORKING ORDER PREVIOUSLY.. HAS A LOVELY SET OF ORIGINAL WHEELS AND TRIMS ON GOOD TYRES ETC. GLASS IS GOOD TOO. NICE TO FIND ONE WITH ALL THE CHROME STILL INTACT AND IN VERY GOOD CONDITION TOO!

I HAVE THE KEY, THE UK REG DOC AND ALL THE OLD MOTS SINCE 1992 TO PROVE THE MILES! TAX AND MOT EXEMPT SO DOES NOT REQUIRE ONE.. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A GOOD SOLID SENSIBLE WINTER PROJECT THEN THIS IS GREAT RARE FIND! WE WONT GET MANY MORE LIKE THIS!
