Specification etc

An original UK car, this one is fitted with freewheel front hubs, a matching set of 600×16 tyres, parabolic springs, side hinged tailgate, rear mudflaps and towbar.

This one was rebuilt from the chassis up by a family friend around 20 years ago, and is now nicely patinated. When he found it derelict in 1997, it didn’t have an engine, so he rebuilt and fitted a Series 2a 2.25 petrol motor, which runs like a swiss watch.

Mileage etc

Odometer reading 59500 miles, and the V5 shows only 4 previous keepers – not bad for a 66 year old. Last owner past 23 years.

The hood is a little past it’s best (although hasn’t been on the vehicle much as he’s kept it garaged) , with a small hole in the top over the load area, but I think this could be patched.
