Engine Size:


This is a matching numbers car that has been owned by us for over 13 years. It is a base ‘270hp’ 3 speed auto with power brakes, power steering and original radio. Much history is available with the car. It has an MOT until May 2014 and is road tax exempt.

A great deal of money has been spent on the car during our ownership and the following items have been replaced: stainless steel sleeve brake callipers, brake discs & pads, metal and rubber brake hoses, shock absorbers, front springs, rear spring  (now a VBP mono-spring), poly suspension and sway bar bushings throughout, ball joints, driveline UJs, rebuilt differential (3:36), differential driveshaft yokes, wheel bearings, transmission input and output seals & bushings, steering gear, power steering hoses, trailing arm bushings, stainless steel parking brake kit, poly differential mount bushing, differential cross-member reinforcement discs, ignition barrel lock, indicator switch, wiper switch, complete engine rebuild with the addition of electronic ignition module, Edelbrock Performer cam & intake, Flowtech headers and Holley carb. Most of the work on the car has been carried out professionally, including 4 wheel laser alignment.

Since we’ve had the car it has been untouched cosmetically apart from the replacement of the wing mirrors. The cosmetic condition of the car is average as it has imperfections to the paint, chrome, and interior. Our price expectations reflect the overall condition of the car and its faults, so the reserve price is sensible. Therefore, we respectfully suggest that anyone seeking perfection look elsewhere and pay the appropriate price, i.e. £20,000 and upwards for an A1 condition basic specification chrome bumper matching numbers car. We would prefer if interested buyers see the car before bidding, although please be aware that the auction will run its course (and do not enquire after the reserve price). This car would probably suit someone who would enjoy a project to take the car to the next level of quality or someone who just wants to drive it (and not own an unusable ‘trailer queen’).

Known faults: clock doesn’t work; driver’s seat tilt latch broken; storage lid hinge broken; air con compressor missing; ‘door ajar’ trip switch broken; front bumper has a ding; front vertical bumpers have rust; tyres have loads of tread but are old; exhaust pipe header step-down transition pipes are scruffy; the headlights do not rise together. There is no jack. Spare rim has no tyre. The gearbox/drivetrain engagement is harsh when gear selection is made, and there is some differential noise.

The odometer shows 42,700 miles but we have no idea if that’s a correct reflection of the true mileage. (Please note that the title is clear. An HPI check may reveal that the car was exported and returned with us when we emigrated.)

The car will be sold as seen with no warranty. Cash on collection only. Bidders with feedback score of less than 10 please contact me before bidding. Good luck.
