“Driver quality” classic car. Bought in early 2023 in a non-running condition, as a white rubber-bumper car, and was painted and heavily gone through since by a genuine british person to turn it into the pretty little pub hopper you see here.

The good: Starts every time, stops, drives straight, runs well. Doesn’t overheat. Tons of new parts listed below.

The bad: Has some rust. It’s 48 years old. Driver’s footwell has a riveted-in patch panel. Driver’s door drops 1 inch when opened. Paint has orange peel texture. Bumpers pitted. No radio.

New parts since Feb 2023:
- Weber DGV carb
- Fuel tank, pump, lines, filter
- Radiator, electric fan & all hoses
- Starter motor
- Clutch hydraulics (both cyls, hose)
- Ignition coil, spark plugs & leads
- Valve cover & gasket
- Water pump & gaskets
- Mountney Steering wheel
- Seat belts
- Carpets
- Shift knob
- Headlights (LED)
- Mirrors
- Tyres & inner tubes
- Brake pads
-Chrome bumper conversion: bumpers, grill, brackets etc from a 70-73 car
- Horn & wiring
- Interior wiring
- Battery
- Driving lights
- Turn signals & relay, other bulbs

Comes with two crates of original/spare parts and accessories, including carb, steering wheel etc. and tonneau cover. Hood in good working condition. Ideal affordable entry into the world of classic motoring.

I’ve spent plenty on it and put hundreds of my own hours into this little car and will be very sad to see it go. Only reason I’m selling is I’m moving and can’t take it with me.

If you would like to make an offer, please come and see the car in person first. Cold emailed offers will be ignored.

Thanks. Please send me an email with a phone number if you’d like to arrange a viewing.
