BUT and I dont say this lightly, It would seem I have stumbled on a possible museum car  :lipsrsealed:

So a MASSIVE thanks to Clipperjay for going to view it for me this afternoon and sorting the deal, I will let him do the description, espeically the part about him buying it if I dont turn up with the cash  :tongue:

Well its true I said to the seller if Chuffy mucks you about (which he defo wont) give me a ring back!
IMO the car has seen 30K on it not stated 60K Apprently the old boy would drive it once a weekend then bloody wash the car polish it then cover it in the garage! He bloody loved that car words fail me!
QTR pannels, doors, wings, everything striaght I thought it had new calipers errr no they were 25 years old  :grin:

Its got new water pump and belts and its just god dam too new! I found the crappy plastic scuttle pannel still in tact YEAH the sh!tty one I havent seen a new one intact since 1989!
Just dont mess with it, massage it and give it TLC that is all Chuff!!!  :kiss:
