I happened upon this a few years ago, bought it for peanuts as a non runner. I proceeded to fix the engine & it has sat dry, under a cover in the barn ever since.
We have had a very busy few years, but I appear to have had an epiphany as the fireworks went off last night & I took the picture.
So wearily this morning with a head full of fog and smelling slightly of brandy, I put a battery on it and it fired up first time and idled like a sowing machine.
Drove it gingerly out into the yard to have a good look over it. Apart from the cobwebs and a few missing bits of trim it looks fantastic. The bootlid is full of rust but I have found a replacement tucked away in the corner which I am changing over as we speak.
I think a good service, clean, fresh mot & some new rubber is in order.
