The last owner took this on as a project over lockdown, and has spent a small fortune since buying it, including (but not limited to)

Running gear

All the above combine to make a superbly useable, fully sorted Lightweight

It comes with a very fat file detailing it’s recent expenditure (including details of it’s army service as 84 KB 63).

The V5 has been correctly updated with DVLA to show the engine swap, with the correct engine number.

As it’s recently been fitted with a newly rebuilt MPH speedometer, we’re selling it as ‘mileage known incorrect’ to avoid any misunderstandings, although we think it’s probably done around 64000m overall – it’s a little academic given the mechanical replacements in it’s life.

It comes with MOT to July 2022, with no advisories.
