Description by seller:
I acquired the car after the death of the original owner and a restoration was done years ago, including a glass fibre frogeye aftermarket bonnet, new imported seat cushions and upholstery along with new carpets, a luggage rack, a Moto Lita wood rim steering wheel and chromed exterior rear-view mirror. Since then, the car has only done 220 miles and has spent many years in storage. New wheel cylinders and a re-sleeved master cylinder have also been installed, as well as a rebuilt gearbox due the original having a noisy first gear.
The car is in very good condition and runs well. The original engine, chassis number and factory body tag are still in place and, unusually for a car of this age, it still has its original hub caps.
The car comes with an original jack, a set of aluminium side screens, a new spare wheel, an original driver's handbook, a tonneau cover and a hood frame. There is no soft top hood.
Papers are in order (status reflects 'Built-up/opgebou') and licensed to date.
Available to view by appointment in Johannesburg.
