Prices for these early cars are now climbing by the day, and good rust free, nice mileage examples are getting ever more difficult to find and are being snapped up by enthusiasts and collectors alike.
Still wearing all of its factory fitted body panels and original factory applied paint, this standard example sits and presents perfectly. All panel gaps are linear straight and free from any dents and as should be and the paint work is in excellent order throughout and free from scuffs or damage. All bright work around the windows, door handles, front and rear lights is excellent and the Xenon headlights are nice and clear and free from damage. The plastic wheel arch extensions, side skirts and front and rear bumper spats still remain un-faded and are free from scuffs or damage. All the factory fitted tinted glass and windscreen are again excellent. Only a few small and covered stone chips can be found upon close inspection around the bonnet edge and are totally insignificant in the way that this car presents. A lot of these are now suffering from rust and corrosion around the tailgate and rear lights....this one isn't. It really is a lovely example that has evidently been looked after throughout its life!
Internally is again very good. The half leather front sports seats are still nice and firm and shaped exactly as they should be. The leather and cloth is in very good order and is free from damage or rips. All door cards are nice and clean and the carpet has been protected by tailor fitted carpet mats since new. All switch gear is nice and fully functional and the centre console upright trims are scratch and scuff free. The alloy patina dashboard trim and door card surrounds are again very nice. Electric windows and door mirrors are working perfectly. The boot area is nice and clean and free from any excessive wear. A lovely interior that compliments the car perfectly.
The correct factory fitted 17" alloy wheels are in very good condition and show only small marks. New tyres will be fitted upon sale.
Out on the road this little car drives and performs superbly.....just as a low mileage and well maintained example should. It pulls strong in every gear and it drives very straight and true. The clutch is nice and light and the gearbox is precise. There are no knocks, bangs or rattles. It really is a good one!The full owners handbook pack is present along with 2 original keys. The service book is fully stamped up and a host of historic mot certificates and a few receipts complete the package. A fresh 12 months mot will be provided upon sale.
