This car has been locked away since 1987, where it was partly stripped ready for a repaint and sadly that didn’t happen. I discovered the car only last month in a little lock up, where it had stood for 32 years!
This is the very sought after mk1 example, of which 1024 were ever made and only 353 cars are known to exist, this one will make it 354. The Jenson is a fantastic basis for restoration, is largely complete (as demonstrated by our pictures) and very original.
A very solid example there are a few small holes to the passengers side floor pan but the chassis and sills are all sound. The glass is complete and original to the car. It features an all matching numbers 383 motor under the bonnet, which is complete including the air cleaner.
The original black leather interior is also complete but in need of some love. As can be seen from those beautiful dials the Mk I is showing only 88,000 miles.
Nothing has been touched. It has been preserved how we found it with years of dust and cobwebs.
This is a real British piece of motoring history and would be a dream restoration project. Mk I examples are starting to reach the £100k mark so why not build your own! Maybe even keep the stunning patina of the body and get the mechanicals sorted to create a jaw dropping rat-rod example.
This is a rare unrestored example and is sold strictly as seen. I welcome pre-sale inspections but please no dreamers or scammers. For more information or detailed photographs please get in contact.
