815-323-6536 ✕ Experience a true English sports car, fun!
Stock #: V18180 Exterior Color: British Race Green Interior Color: Tan Body Type: Convertible Transmission: 4 Speed Engine: 1588 CC -80 HP Title Condition: Clear Vehicle Description This is a true sportscar roadster- a 2 seater convertible without roll up windows, you get side curtains This British sports car gives an altogether different feeling then the Camaros and Cadillacs that we are used to. It is a lot of fun, it's sporty! It's obviously smaller and lower, shifting through the gears and revving that motor to make that distinct sound and the wind blowing on your skin all makes you feel like a chap!
EXTERIOR: We polished...that British racing green to a very glossy, smooth finish. Is it flawless? No, but the car shows really well. I'm standing next to it and it's slick. There's a couple minor nicks or scratches. All the chrome is new- up front the entire grill, bumper, bumper guards, headlight bezels are new. The chrome vents and emblems by the hood are new. In back the bumper, license plate light, light bezels and emblems on the trunk are new. The welting between the fenders are new. No door handles on the outside, because there's no windows! You just open it from the inside. It has a black convertible top in great shape. The side windows easily mount to the doors, they have sliding hard plastic instead of soft plastic. The easiest way to cover the interior is using the Hartz cloth tonneau cover. It also zips down the middle to just expose the driver side. The optional knock off wire wheels really dress it up.
INTERIOR: Genuine leather on the seats, top of doors and armrest. The leather have the right amount of patina, like that perfectly broken in leather jacket. The dash is in great shape and has the full selection of instruments including a tachometer. It has the classic Moto Lita hand made aluminum spoke steering wheel with the wood grip. New wood shifter knob too. It has been recarpeted and has MG floor mats. Somebody did add a stereo, speakers and seatbelts.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The engine looks fresh. Claimed to have been rebuilt and it looks and runs like it was. The 1588 cc 4 cylinder with dual carbs winds out 80 hp. That's enough to take it to it's top speed of 100 mph. The carbs look fresh. The wiring and hoses look recently replaced. Its dressed up with aluminum valve cover. Everything looks proper under the hood.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Clean metal painted green. It has a matching wire wheel for a spare.
UNDERSIDE: It is not detailed underneath but it is really good. Looks to be rust free, all the components are proper. The frame and chassis is clean metal. I bet there isn't bolt that couldn't be removed with a wrench. It looks like it was apart and rebuilt, just not detailed. There brakes were just redone, they are disc in front. The bottom of the motor is clean. The 4-speed trans is clean. The floors are plywood, in excellent condition.
Fun car, ready for some winding roads out in the countryside!

About Volo Auto Museum No other collector car dealer has been in business longer than the Volo Auto Museum. Owned and operated by the Grams family since 1960. We are the only collector car dealer that has 4 generations of experience with buying, selling and consigning classic autos. For our family, classic cars are more than a business, it is a passion. Over the decades, we have maintained a reputation for dealing with integrity as proven with our high reviews and A+ rating with the BBB. Buying a classic car can be exciting, but also stressful. We want to take the stress out of your buying experience by allowing you the time and tools you need to get to know the car you are interested in before making your investment, not after. Unlike auctions, we allow test drives, 3rd party inspections, the use of our shop and car lift. No reasonable request will be turned down.

After reviewing your quality collector car, we will discuss the options we have available to you and let you decide what works best for you. We have cash available for immediate sales and we also offer a consignment program that surpasses anyone else’s. Unlike percentage based programs with fees; we work with a no fee, net to owner. This allows us the opportunity to treat and market your car as if it were our own. We invest approximately $1500 of our own money into marketing your car, which means if it doesn’t sell, we lose, not you. So, we are more aggressive in selling your car!
