WHAT TO LOOK FOR

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

IS THE PLAS­TIC FAN­TAS­TIC? In­te­rior plas­tic trim can be frag­ile on early cars – Se­ries 2s were bet­ter. A sag­ging cloth head­lin­ing is about £400 to sort (it was moulded on some mod­els), while the bond­ing ad­he­sive for the rear win­dow and quar­ter glasses can de­te­ri­o­rate over time. Grotty wiring and fail­ing re­lays are of­ten re­spon­si­ble for most elec­tri­cal nig­gles so it makes sense to check that ev­ery­thing works, as re­plac­ing failed elec­tric mo­tors may not be straight­for­ward or cheap. Talk to the clubs for guid­ance on this.
