This car is unrestored and all original. It even still has it's original upholstery. Although it is mostly stuffing and remnants of leather.

For 15 years I thought that the car came from the factory Old English White. I ordered a Heritage Certificate to find out the original color is Pearl Grey.

I've owned many British cars over the years. This one is by far my favorite. I don't understand why everyone is so negative about these. Drive one and see!
