Sold For £5500. £5750 In Total

Superb in British Racing Green with white roof and bonnet stripes. Fitted black 1/2 leather and red carpets, correct alloys, stainless steel arches, twin spots, etc.

The vendor has written a very eloquent history and description of J85BVX as follows.

A superbly restored example with an extraordinary history. This car has been restored twice with extensive documentation and photographs.

In 2000 this Cooper was subject of a serialised restoration by Car Mechanics Magazine which come with the vehicle.

In 2006 its new owner had the car professionally restored by Simon Robinson & Co of Darlington where it was re-shelled. The documented restoration complete with invoices totaling £13,000 are in the extensive history file.

Since restoration, the car has been cossetted and used lightly, having only covered 8000 documented miles in the last 10 years.

Its current owner bought the vehicle in 2015 and has done some detailing to bring it up to an excellent standard.

The vehicle comes with an M.O.T until July 2017 and is ready to enjoy.

Here to be viewed now.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le-dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Thank you.
