HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD IT?

I’m ac­tu­ally look­ing for a val­u­a­tion on be­half of my part­ner. She has owned this car from new, though it was ini­tially a com­pany car, bought in 1989 by her em­ployer from the War­wick Wright deal­er­ship in Chiswick. She later bought it from the com­pany. The car has never been used much and the cur­rently dis­played mileage of 21,258 is ab­so­lutely gen­uine. The car is kept in a garage.

HOW MUCH HIS­TORY?

There’s lots of doc­u­men­ta­tion – all the ser­vice stamps and doc­u­ments, old MoTs and so on. But largely the car is just as it left the fac­tory and in amaz­ing con­di­tion – the seats look al­most new, in­clud­ing the no­to­ri­ous driver’s side bol­sters, and even the front foglamps haven’t rusted yet. Though we have re­placed the bat­tery, fit­ted a new set of Hankook tyres and re­placed a gas strut on

the rear hatch.

WHAT’S LEFT TO DO ON IT?

The fac­tory in­stalled alarm needs some at­ten­tion, though that’s hardly un­usual – it is a 28-year-old sys­tem! It would also ben­e­fit from some re­fur­bish­ment work on a cou­ple of the al­loy wheels.

HAS IT BEEN MOD­I­FIED?

Not at all, un­less you count the dif­fer­ent brand of tyres to orig­i­nal.
