This beautiful car , I searched for several years for one of its kind, having owned her for only a year I have to part with her as house and continent change will not allow us to take all our toys.
The vehicle comes in perfect running order everything works as it should, a comprehensive tool kit fitted as per the original car would have had.
A colourful and documented history of a trip to Ireland a registration number change, pictures featuring Terry Waite and John McCathy driving her ,having been owned by Phil Collins's road manager and his wife. She was sold in an Auction at Brooks London and was described as follows:-
Few tourers survive from the immediate post war period, she was presented as part of a major private collection maintained by an inhouse mechanic ,current condition is good with only minor blemish here and there and has survived extremely well and the leather seats are nicely worn.
All electric including trafficators are working, the engine runs very smoothly and has been totally dependable during current ownership.
All of which has been true for me too, she will give someone endless pleasure and it is a heart wrenching to consider selling her.
Comes with documented history, personal and official letters, old MOT's dating back many years, a complete workshop manual.
I am in no real hurry to selling her and will consider sensible offers close to the asking price.
E mail any questions and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability.
Bank Transfer prior to removal or collection.
