The car was first registered on the 10th September 1981 leaving the factory painted Pageant Blue with a black houndstooth interior and 4-speed non-overdrive gearbox. According to the logbook I am the 7th owner, the chassis number is 600th from the end of production and the car was built at the Canley factory.
I purchased the car in June 2010 from a private seller in Codnor, Ripley in Derbyshire who had owned the car since 1993 and had paid for alot of bodywork restoration in August 1995 with repairs being made to the sills and rear wings and a respray. I intend to submit a V888 form to the DVLA to find out the history of the car prior to 1993. So watch this space!
