No Reserve

Original late chrome bumper car; owned by the same family since new; showing only 40,000 miles; last on the road in 2002 and been in storage since, having been lathered in grease; better than it looks!

First registered in May 1974, this must have been one of the last chrome bumper models to come off the production line. Showing just a touch over 40,000 miles, which we are told is correct, this car has only been lightly used over the years. It is being offered for sale through the family of the late Graeme Kidd, who will have been known to those local to Brightwells, having been a town stalwart and former mayor of Ludlow, Shropshire.

Online records show no previously recorded keepers, but we know it belonged to Graeme’s mother before him and it is believed that she had it since new, but certainly since the 1970s. Graeme rarely used the car and in about 2002, it was stashed into a garage after being substantially covered in waxoyl and grease to preserve it.

The body has suffered a little but after clearing some grease off one corner, it is unsurprisingly not too bad underneath. The engine turns and all things seem to be present and correct. The interior is as expected for a 40,000 mile car, with very little wear. The pedals are clean, the floors are solid, the boot is untouched, the headlining is tight and quite frankly just needs a bit of a hoover and a tidy.

There is one old MOT on file from 2002, but unfortunately the current V5 and all the keys have been lost while the car has been in storage.

This could be a relatively straight forward and very satisfying project to recommission and as an added incentive, it is being offered with no reserve so fill those boots with some furious bidding!
