Lot 1009 at Dee Atkinson and Harrison sale Classic Cars and Motorcycles at Driffield on 3rd March 2018. Catalogue description below.
This matching numbers UK car has been owned by our vendor for some 37 years, being bought in October 1980 as the previous owner, a Brian Wilcockson of Hull wanted a boat: he had bought it whilst on holiday in Cornwall. Only 974 right hand drive 2+2's were built, chassis numbers 1E50001 - 1E50974, this being the 779th.
Originally believed to be cream in colour it was already Carmen Red when purchased and was painted again in the late 1980's, since when little has been done to it apart from general maintenance; a clutch, radiator, oil pump, and bottom end bearings were fitted in the early 1990's due to oil pressure dropping off, it turned out to be a faulty gauge. The sub frame has been stove enamelled and a stainless steel exhaust pipe fitted in 2016.
OLY wears his original mileage of 95,320 well for an older restoration that has only had a believed three owners, not perfect or concours but very original, unmolested and useable as he is. The Webasto sunroof is factory fitted. Sold with V5C, various old receipts and MoT history back to 2011.
