Description by seller:
Sadly, it’s time for my little emerald to move on to a new loving home. The car was purchased on18 May 2020S and is a fully restored and well-kept piece of 1950s history. It was built up from scratch and I have spent a lot of time and money to get it to its current condition. Body is clean without any rust, dents and scratches. It runs well but does require a little TLC.
The air vent on the front left fender is not original. I do, however, have the original mechanism which can be cleaned/refurbished and fitted. The fuel tank in the engine bay is an original but not connected as there is a larger auxiliary tank in use, but this can be converted back to original (the auxiliary tank as far as I am aware is not original but the tank cap is).
Exhaust is in good condition but do not believe it is original. There is no radio and no aircon, just a simple venting system.
Upgraded to 12 Volt system. Battery box with isolator switch was installed.
Papers are in order (status reflects 'Used/gebruik') and licensed to date.
Available to view by appointment in Wilderness, Western Cape.
