It's been on e-bay as a "buy it now" for ages. It's a left hooker with the lower powered (102 bhp) engine, partial after market carpeting and nonstandard finish on the rocker covers. One of the vacuum pipes to the washer bottle is detached which may have disabled the rear quarterlights. I suspect the pictures flatter the brightwork and the rubber gaskets on the rear lights are shot. It's also on 165 section tyres when it should be on 175s. Having said all that it's still a nice car.

And some further thoughts;

 it's lost its' original air horns,

the jack seems to be missing which given they were common to Ferrari and Maserati can make them expensive to replace,

there appears to be a lack of paint on the body behind the bonnet hinges which together with the courtesy light switches being sprayed over calls into question how much trouble was taken over the re-spray,

the condition of the bright-work taken with the wear on the drivers door seal at footwell level causes me to suspect the vendor is mistaken in saying the trim is original,

the leather of the dash top roll is coming detached where it tucks in above the switch gear and glove box lid and may be snagging when the glove box is opened.
