History
First owner was an executive at The Belfast Telegraph newspaper, then imported into England in 2004, lots of history and had been well-loved but more recently, was not as well cared for, last 2 owners drove and enjoyed but didnt appear to have maintained as well. Paintwork was covered in stickers for a cross-Europe trip and on removal has taken much lacquer with it. Car is now looking generally tatty externally and is awaiting full strip & respray in Jan 2018. Carpets removed for floorpan welding and repair. Later Ti seats fitted, so a set of correct 1998 tan seats and door cards are now awaiting fitting. In need of some TLC and sympathy but will be lovely when finished!
