When the Professor became too old to drive in 2016 the car was passed to his valet who kept the car in the Barbican until we purchased it in December of last year. We have replaced the battery, the front discs and pads and pads on the rear. We have also replaced the tyres all round for new Falkens. Current MOT is valid until 21st December 2018 with no advisories.
ENGINE GEARBOX AND BRAKES
The engine fires up first time and pulls like a new car. The oil is golden and fresh as it has been replaced every year of its working life. The ABS light comes on and goes off on start as it is meant to. Front discs and pads have just been replaced as have the pads on the rear. The gearbox is positive and slick, just like when new.
The body presents in fantastic condition, the paint is still excellent with no dings or scrapes and the interior is spotless and unworn. The wheels are completely unmarked and there is not a spot of rust on the car as the original wax treatment is still visible all over. All the electrics work, including the sunroof and spoiler. The windows all show the correct registration etched onto them and we have two keys for the car. It is completely HPi clear and we have the certificate in hand. The original Pursors and Alan Day stickers are present, as are the original number plates. The spare is unused and the first aid kit is present and in its cellophane. Under the car is rust free and all components look fresh, and it’s spotless under the arches. The VW leather folder is as-new with all booklets. An incredible find with blue-chip investment potential.
