Originally supplied painted Aquatic Jade and fitted with a 1275cc Cooper 'S' engine/gearbox, Sunroof, Face level vents and Dunlop Alloy wheels. The car was garage stored from 1971 until 1985 until regrettably the car was moved into the owners yard when the garage was converted in accommodation. Whilst covered over since then, the owner began to strip the car to begin a restoration, however the humidity in that part of the World has had a dramatic impact on its condition. The car is however totally complete with all its parts, stored in boxes after removal and still fitted with its 1275cc Cooper 'S' engine.
Not only in this one of the very last cars built, it is totally original in every way and having only ever completed 24 miles in its life. As a RHD version, is eminently suitable to be re-imported back into the UK.
