I bought this earlier in the year from motoring journalist and author Rich Duisberg. He’d owned it for sixteen years previous and it had sat in his garage for over a year. It’s a really early one (july '89) and believed to be the earliest silver uk in the country. I paid £750 for it and £250 for it to be delivered from Leicester to up here in the North East.
So a grand for a car with hanging rear arches and no mot.
Here it is being delivered. And of course my dog wanted a look.
Anyway, I pumped the tyres up and took it for an mot. Waiting like an expectant dad, the garage rang. It had passed with no advisories!
The rear arches were letting the side down along with a crusty drivers door.
It’s a lovely little car and is quite famous. It’s been to loads of tracks both here and abroad including the Nurburgring.
There is a great build thread detailing a full strip and overhaul. It has new powder coated subframes, coil overs and if fully poly bushed.
Is there any interest?
