This vehicle was a daily driver and has been in an air conditioned/heated garage depending on the outside temperature. It has some rust in a few areas starting. A previous owner did a questionable patch job on the floor board but the rest of the car is solid. As with any British car, if there are not leaks in your driveway, it can’t be British and this car is no exception.

Goes 72 mph – Went 78 mph top speed with gas motor.
