'79 Bay Window. Tax & MOT Exempt - Swansea, South Wales.
This is Percy, he's been sitting in my dry garage, unused for far too long (checking the last MOT he's only done 35 miles since 2010!!) and I've decided it's time to move him on. So I've recently, fitted a hot start relay, cleaned out the carb, put some fresh petrol in and got him out on the road again. He's a good starter and runner, the engine is a recon unit (fitted by a previous owner something around 28,000 ago) although he'd benefit from replacing the 009 distributor with 034. The underneath is pretty good condition, clean and not too much rust, the metalwork and seals in the engine compartment are complete and good condition. The poptop is weatherproof, there's a Rock'n'Roll bed (storage underneath), two ring gas stove with grill, a sink and rudimentary storage, along with a removeable radio/cassette player. There are a few jobs that could be done; replacing door locks, sorting the bumpers, the fuel level sender and updating the interior, but the biggest job would be the external panels. Previous owner used acrylic paint which is a bit rough. If the new owner wanted a complete respray, then new door skins might be a good idea. Percy is a good running project, but as the last MOT was 11 years ago, I would strongly recommend any buyer to do a trailer collection (unless local to Swansea) and a ramp inspection prior to serious use. Please note: Percy is sold as seen, no return or refund. Payment prior to collection.
