This one was for sale at Quiller for quite a few years.
The car was registered YLE29 until it changed hands earlier this year.

Cheers,
Bill.

'Unrestored' - Been repainted, had a new engine, new wing, new door, new carpet set and seat belts installed... And has had welding on the chassis.

It's a nice car, and someone was tooting it round on here a while ago, but it's NOT unrestored.

For all the time it's been sitting around (getting passed around), you'd think someone at some point might have tried to do a bit of cleaning of the interior.

Ok.
Just for the record....this was my car.
It was "unrestored".
It was over 55 years old & was a daily driver to the original owner up till the early 2000's.
It had a new engine because the original one wore out to the point it couldn't be repaired.
It had a blow over paint job when the new engine was fitted, as the paint was polished through to the primer in most places.
It had a new wing & door skin in a documented accident in 1971.
It had new carpet as the original was threadbare at 48 years old.
The seat belts were fitted in 1971 after the accident shook the owner up.
Two or three small plates were welded on the chassis to get her through here yearly MOT.
So actually.
It is actually an "unrestored" car.
ALL the facts mentioned above are the results of keeping a daily driven car on the road since 1960.
I have "restored" cars in the past.
I know what a restoration is.
My car wasn't.
Oh & the reason for the "unclean" interior......
The original plastic transparent covers that had been on the seats & door trims since new, were removed about 3 or 4 years ago.
They were actually sun bleached......
Thanks.
Andy.
