An original UK car, this one was in military service as 44 BP 70 before being civilian registered in 1976

Fitted with a period-correct 2.0 petrol motor, a matching set of decent 600×16 tyres, wing mirrors, bonnet-mounted spare, military-spec lights, bridge plate, aerial mount, blue roof light, ‘cat flap’ rear door, and NATO towhook.

Inside it has 3 seats across the front, a bench seat in the back, and it’s original type sprung steering wheel

Odometer reading 58000 miles, and it’s military-spec 571-prefix motor is likely to be the original as it’s very close number wise to the chassis number.

Whilst it is, of course,  RFL and MOT exempt, the previous owner has voluntarily had it tested and hence it has a current MOT until July  2024

It potters along quite happily – you won’t break any speed records though!
