Thousands have been put into this car to get it to this point. It's a surprisingly fun car to drive, quick and nimble.It’s basically perfect as far as old British’s cars go mechanically.

Drives "thumbs up" at every occasion we drive it.

I have described the above mentioned vehicle to the best of my ability. However, with all classic vehicles, the condition is subjective and therefore I encourage a physical inspection strongly to avoid any misunderstandings or representations.

There are few minor things to comment about this car. The seats are from an earlier model of the car and the trunk lid seems to be from a MG midget (compatible vehicle), same about the cover top.

Just bid if you're interested, please. Shipping and delivery will be your responsibility. Vehicle is located in Roseville-CA. If you would want to drive it home in the Sacramento area that is up to your discretion. I think it will go fine, aswe drive it regularly on the weekends through Roseville and even up to Folsom or Auburn, but I won't make any guarantees. Longer distances could however be an adventure.

The car is currently registered and insured through Hagerty as classic car. The California title is clear at my wife's name,registered with the DMV till August 2019. Smog exempt.

Lots of literature about the car: vintage workshop manuals, restoration manuals, the "A engine" tuning guide, spare parts catalogs, history books, etc.., valued in more than $500 and necessary to keep improving it will be transferred as well.

Sold AS IS, WHERE IS: $8,000

If you’re looking for one that’s completely correct and original thenthis is maybe not your car. But if you just want a fun car to enjoy while you keep working on itto take it to the next restoration level for a good price then this is a very good option. Motor enthusiasts and critics alike loved the look and handling of these British cars. Someone is going to get many years of smiles out of this car as we are getting now. It is what it is.

Reason for selling is thatafter some years livingin the US we're getting back to Spainfrom where we are originally from in these next months, andweare afraid that we will not be able to enjoy it as it deserves there because of the weather and traffic conditions. Therefore, if the price proposal is close enough toour "buy it now" request maybewe will accept it.

Please let me know whatever questions you may have. More detailed picturesor videos showing how fine it runs and drivescan bemade available upon request, as well as it can be seen locally.
