Reluctantly selling my favorite car, it's time to build a new garage. This car was restored by the previous owner a few years ago. It was a extensive restoration with every component removed, refurbished or replaced, the body was stripped to bare metal and lower rockers rebuilt with steel parts and then painted by a pro who is well known in the British car groups around Detroit. I have done more work to the car, a few upgrades and repairs. It's wonderful to drive, gauges look great, and everything functions as it should, except for the horn, it's missing. There are a few nicks/scratches that were touched up . The bottom is painted red as well and looks great. . .New grille

Call with questions, 734-692-7151. you are welcome to come inspect the car before auction ends. A $500 deposit is required immediatly through PayPal, this deposit is NOT refundable.
I keep the car at my restoration shop, if you come see it we will get it on a lift so you can view the underside. We restore and repair British cars as well as many others, I'll do my best to answer your questions. Please realize that this car has been fully restored, this very different than a car that's been repainted with new seat covers. The term restoration is widely misused these days. Inspect the car before you buy, not after. If you can't view in person, hire an independent inspector. I do this for buyers all over the country but there's an obvious conflict of interest. Thanks for looking, Dave
There is a scratch on the right rear quarter behind the tire, there is a photo of it above, it's hard to see.
The bottom of the car is painted red, was done when the body was painted, I can't add any more photos, I can send some if you request or email me at
I cleaned and treated the seats to leather cleaner, they look way better than the photos show. 734-692-7151

“Restored a few years ago, excellent condition, not perfect as it's been driven since Restoration. See photos for condition. Some scratches and nicks, some "smooth" spots on seats! glass looks to be original”
