    Amazing condition for its year, a real credit to its owner.

    He is looking to sell to the right buyer, i.e. somebody else who will cherish it as well as he. He's getting on a bit, and doesn't have the time/energy to devote to it. Not sure if any motor museums would be interested, it's fairly old, but not that old yet :)

    Oh seeing that car brings back memories for me :) My old man had one from the same year but by the time he got rid of his it had over 300.000 miles on the clock :eek:

    And yes, that is an amazing example uumode :) If i had the space and money id buy it and lock it away, only bringing it out for shows :cool:

    I think around £5,500 to £6,500. However, as you imply, you are not really buying a 'car' what you are buying is an 'ornament piece' which you pull out of the garage now and then, to admire, polish, drive a few miles to exercise it, then put back into the garage again - not really everyday transport.

    Beautiful car. My grandad had a 240TD estate which he purchased from new in 1984. The car had only covered 41k in its entire life, which came to an abrupt end when i crashed it 2 years ago! :eek: Being unpopular with the family was an understatement especialy when the insurance only paid out a shade under £2k.

    If it wasn't for the colour i would have made an offer and tried to redeem myself! Not a personal favourite.

    Brown is the New Black.

    The interior is excellent, wish mine was that clean.
