*Fitted with overdrive


Odometer Reading: 73696
MOT Expiry: 01/10/2019

This well presented Series I example comes with old tax discs and MoT certificates going back to 1977. Restored by a Series One club member in the 1980s it has an odometer reading of 73,000 miles which is believed to be genuine. In good driving order the overdrive unit enables more relaxed motoring and it is fitted with road tyres. Very good bodywork (the tub is reported as being straight and showing no signs of hard use) and Bronze Green paint are accompanied by an equally tidy interior featuring black seats which show little signs of use. The canvas tilt is in good condition as well.
