New Pirelli tyre (drivers side front). August – brake pressure regulator replaced. September – front engine mounting replaced, O/S/F brake calliper replaced, front brake pads replaced, front wiper blades replaced.
Great fun, gets A LOT of attention and bombs down the motorway!
Two very careful lady owners 😊
There are rust patches on bodywork and some dents that have rusted, which need attention. Please see photos where I have tried to show everything.
Rubbers and metal trim on back windows in need of replacement.
Scratch/small hole on bottom of bumper
Lining coming away inside roof
Sunroof doesn’t open
Crack to front headlight (passed MOT with it)
Small chip on windscreen (passed 3 or 4 MOTs with it)
Wear and tear as to be expected in a 30 year old car
This is a reluctant sale. I just need a run-around for every day, and this car needs to go to someone who can spend the time and love doing her up to her former glory.
I have been told that she is very valuable to someone who would want to break her down for parts due to all original features. This breaks my heart and I know I can’t dictate what you do with her but I would REALLY like her to go to someone who can do her up. She will be worth loads!!!
