The red G plate UK Mk1 in 'Return to the fold Part 1' was sold to first enquiry but I've now enquired about this , half the miles and much less historic exposure to UK roads. Although another early G plate one , it's a Long Nose Crank so no worries on that score either. Watch this space :)

  • Original jack, accessories and spare wheel are with the car
  • Interior is in really good condition, no rips or tears in the seats
  • Car has never had any advisories for rust or corrosion - the underside is really clean owing to it being dry stored and not used much. View attachment 75514 View attachment 75514
