Full recent service
Car is under fuelling slightly after it was setup at the rolling road.
It has a switch rigged up to the 5th injector.
Car is very responsive and drives lovely for a car that lacks modern comforts. It pulls extremely well, handles welland is a smooth drive.
It went to one car show locally last year and was a pleasure to actually use it.

For genuine buyers - the following does not apply.
Please note the very start of the advert - i am not selling it as i need the money, i am not looking for a part exchange to take its place and sit in the garage un used, i am selling as its pointless taxing, insuring and mot'ing/servicing a car that doesnt get used. Although just under 5 years and it will be tax and mot exempt and theyre only going up in value. So please - no traders who want to "do me a favour" and take it off my hands to help me: theres no situation to help - other than help your pockets by making a stupidly low offer for you to try flip it for a quick profit. Im not desperate to sell it, im not desperate for the money so please dont waste my time or your time with daft offers, hence ive put my lowest price to start with - which is already less than the certificated agreed value i have with my insurance company. Thank you.
