OUR CLIENT

Steve is a petrol head hes just like us here at Trade Classics. As we know, one classic is never enough, and hes got a lovely collection of cars including a stunning V12 E-Type. Steve bought this car over five years ago after falling in love with it. And I can understand why, its has something about it that you instantly fall in love with and want.

Steve took me out in it to film our usual On the Road and Meet the Owner videos (links below) and I was surprised just how usable this type of car actually is. We kept a steady 40 mph and it felt great. I cant think of a more perfect city car well the coolest city car.

Unfortunately Steve is limited on space and he is in the process of buying a boat, so he plans to use the proceeds of this sale towards the new purchase. Steve loves the car but he just doesnt use it much, and its a shame to be sitting in the garage all the time it needs to be used and loved by a new owner now.



THE EXTERIOR

Theres no doubt about it, this car looks stunning and has had a very good restoration in the past. Please make sure you take a look at all the images and videos in this listing you wont be disappointed in the quality of this little car.

Wheels & Tyres
The car is fitted with original steel wheels with Falken tyres.

Bodywork
As you would expect, the car looks excellent in terms of both rust and rot upon our usual visual inspection I didnt see any signs of either. Please check out the images and videos to see the detailed condition of each body panel. Youll also see the reflections in the videos to see just how good this car is.

Paint
The red paint is absolutely stunning and fresh and looks eye-popping against the chrome. The paint is in excellent condition its even across the panels and I didnt notice any colour differences. Theres a small mark on the NS rear panel that has been pointed out in the video its very small.

Glass and Trim
Both are in excellent condition across the car. The vinyl hood is in good condition as can be seen in the images.



THE INTERIOR

The interior is really beautiful its been restored perfectly and a credit to the restoration.

Seats and Carpets
Both the seats and carpets are in great condition they must have been subject to the restoration that was actioned in the past. There are pictures in the media pack of the front foot well carpets being lifted too.

Dashboard
The speed gauge and interior is in very good condition, as can be seen in the media file.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick
Both are in excellent condition with no issues.



MECHANICS

As mentioned, Steve took me out for a short drive on some back roads around Henley on Thames I was seriously impressed with this little car. It felt good and strong and really enjoyed the experience this car brings a big grin to the occupants and the people outside.

Engine and Gearbox
The car started first go from cold there was no blue smoke (see the cold start video). The engine soon settled into a smooth tick over. I didnt notice any blue smoke either during cold or hot start, or when manoeuvring around the courtyard. Steve has also spent over £3.5k on the engine and other work back in 2015 (see invoice) this was done by the Bromley Bubble Company and will give the new owner peace of mind that everything that could have been done, has been done, and the car can simply be enjoyed.

Suspension and Brakes
There were no knocks or rattles on the drive out. Please watch the video to see the car accelerating, steering and stopping. It preformed just as youd expect it a credit to the high quality restoration that was actioned.

The Drive
The engine really pulls the car along its very nippy considering it was carrying two adults and was happy around 40 mph. There were no issues detected on the drive.

Electrics and Other
There are hardly any electrics on the car, however, Steve informs us the basics all work as they should.
