    Car offered at:

    Sellers description:
    70,000 well documented miles from new, this 5 owner car is offered with service and maintenance history going back to 1966, including recent bills for over £20,000, and with MOTs which date back to 1977. The present MOT certificate expires March 2013.

    This is an original Series 1, 3.8 Litre, FHC in Old English White with navy blue interior. A UK car with matching chassis and engine numbers (chassis number 860475, engine number R 5011-9), registered May 1962.

    Although the car has undergone substantial and expensive restoration it maintains a rare originality and "correctness" which is so unusual in cars of this age. It has the original aluminum radiator, moss gearbox in excellent working order and early style bucket seats recently re-trimmed to match the original navy. The aluminum centre console and dash, a key feature of early cars is in fine condition. The car was subject to some restoration and a re-spray in the 1980s and has been in the present owner's hands since 1989. 3170 UN had a rear suspension rebuild in 1990 and an engine rebuild by Sporting Classics of Goudhurst, Kent at 67,000 miles in the 1990s. In 2010 the car had some body restoration and a full re-spray with the replacement of many chrome parts and rubber seals and an interior re-trim (excluding headlining) by noted restorer, H Engineering of Tunbridge Wells. The clutch was replaced in May 2011 by A. Gallard & Son of Tunbridge Wells who have maintained the car for over 13 years.

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
