I remember that car for sale 18mths ago may be 2 years it had a very bad
purple paint job, not sure wether it had a mot or not, a full mot cert makes all
the differance when it comes to a rolling restoration,
Yes, it was once mine. I owned it when it was purple. Wasn't a great paint finish but much better than that yellow appears to have been. I had to sell it in 2008. It was originally silver until the early 2000's I seem to recall, going by the paperwork.
I never managed to MOT it due to the fact the rear brake balance valve had gone and I couldn't find a replacement. That and the fact the door mirror fell out on the way to the testing garage and the emissions were way over the limit.
