This 88" Series 1 is in superb condition, following a comprehensive chassis up restoration by specialists, during which all bodywork was removed, stripped and repaired as necessary. The bumper and window frames were galvanised, and all the body panels prepared and painted individually prior to final assembly. The 2.0-litre petrol engine was fully overhauled by historic engine specialist Agra Engineering and the gearbox stripped and checked.
The list of new items fitted includes: clutch assembly, exhaust system, brakes, front springs and hood. The car has also been fully rewired with the correct period-style wiring loom. Very few miles have been covered since the restoration was completed in 2014.
According to the Heritage Certificate, chassis 116-8-00655 began life with a diesel engine but has since been converted to petrol power and performs exceptionally well. The history file includes detailed invoices and extensive photos of the restoration work, together with magazine articles featuring the car.
