1971 Austin 1300 VDP

The vendor has kindly supplied the following information :-

Austin 1300 Vanden Plas 

Reg Number BRH 951K 

Finished in Mallard green with Limeflower leather interior (very 70's!) 

2 owner car covering only 15977 miles from new. 

Car bought new from Kennings of Hull main dealer on 11 Nov 1971. 

Comes with 18 tax discs the earliest dated 1974. 

8 mots and 1 vehicle licence application form dated 1986 with original owner. 

Comes with original owners handbook and a number of parts invoices. 

Current MOT expires may 2019. 

The last keeper commissioned a sympathetic restoration fitting 2 new front wings and a very good paint job in its original Mallard Green. 

He is also part of the Vanden Plas owners club. 

The interior is totally complete and in fantastic condition. 

The vehicle travelled by recovery truck for its MOT test each year before being taken home and garaged which will be shown on the MOT mileages. 

Being subject to a recent full service, reconditioned radiator and new water pump. 4 brand new tyres (as it was still on its original tyres) and all the brakes brought up to spec. 

The only known fault is the temperature guage is inaccurate but we have taken all other steps to ensure its not overheating. We didnt want to disturb the wooden dashboard.

The car drives perfectly and can be driven home.

Even comes with original tool kit/jack and the refill pump box for the hydrolastic suspension.

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.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles.

So, if you have a vehicle which you would like us to re-home.... just make the call. 01751 474455
