The only time we saw a car like this was many years ago, and since then we’ve never seen another around or for sale somewhere, until now.

Of course most of you don’t know about this car but at the same time you hardly will see another one in these stunning conditions: we believe that a real classic car enthusiast doesn’t mind if a car has “noble” origins as long as it is n conditions like this one.

The seller has provided a very detailed description of the car, saying that the car has two owners in 44 years: it has been repainted in 2010 when it also received new gaskets for the windscreen and rear window and a new vinyl top: the other area of the car are immaculate, especially the interiors which seem like new. The only thing we didn’t understood is the engine displacement: this model was built with different engine size; for sure is not a 2300 cc but it could be a 1300 or a 1700. Find it for sale at £5,300 (today $7,000) here in Oporto, Portugal.

  1. Interesting to see another one, my uncle has an identical one in white with a black vinyl roof and a 2.0 under the bonnet. Completely standard engine and bodywork with the exception of a front valance from the sportier model and a full stainless steel exhaust. He’s owned it for over 20 years and it has needed virtually no welding. Beautiful car.
