45 years old and i think it is exempt from both road tax and MOT in the Uk.
I have owned this for more than 11 years and covered only 2000 miles maximum including the drive from London to Bulgaria which it performed without any problems! V5 is in my name and had many new parts when i bought it to include:
Distributor (plus leads & plugs), Carburettor, Fuel pump, Steering box.
41490 miles (Mileage shows 05362 but had a new clock in 2007, and last MOT was 36128 on 26/4/2007) It may well be original and not been round the clock, cant say for sure.
It starts and runs well, drums all round, original faded denim interior with i think O'Neil surfing waterproof seat covers...Other than the eye lids and chrome wheels and old faded stickers, it is all original in that it has not been modified from original form or engine type.
Lovely self colour dash with original steering wheel and original radio, modern CD in glove box (pics to follow)
Needs small amount of welding to inner wings back and front small holes where enter cabin, replacement panels included never bothered fixing it up to now as never intended to sell and always was garaged up until last year. I bought it like that and it has not got any worse!
It has always had since i bought it a scrape to rear drivers wing, as seen in pics and a similar ding to front pass wing at around 11/12 o/clock as viewed from side, maybe poss to see in last pic...1st pic was 11 years ago with my boys on the bonnet, they are now Men, and last year with my youngest two.
I also can get the welding done for you before sale if required, and check all is in good working order before collection.
Please note car is in North Bulgaria near to Pleven, not Uk!
Any enquires please email only as i dont use Uk phone whilst abroad.
