Was sold new by Lankesters in Surbiton Surrey delivery date 23.03.1961, Maintenance Voucher Book stamped up to 1970 or 71 (difficult to read). There are MOTs from 1975 through to 1997 then a gap with further MOTs from 1999 through to 2003 (there is one certificate missing from this period).

A letter from the vendor:
Auctioneers Note: The vendor has owned this car for many years. The history file is amazing, MOT’s’ go back to 1975, old tax discs, build certificate, showing that she was built on 25.1.61. In all the papers you will find original service book, sale and service dictionary, owners handbook and a very useful owners repair manual It is possible that this rare coupe could have only covered 54,000 miles. There has been a speedometer change at 38,015 miles in ’71 ’72 and the speedometer is now reading 16,138 miles that gives a total of 54,153 miles, which is stacked up by the service history, old MOT’s and the vendor’s letter.
