SE5a for Sale

Post by kevincooper » Fri May 10, 2019 6:17 pm

I have been contacted by a gentleman who is assisting a friend in selling his SE5a, details and contact information below.

The car is located near Maldon in Essex, The prior owner who has sadly passed away, only that I am around classic cars, owning one or two myself and have been approached by the deceased’s sister as a friend to ask for help.

In better times, this was the car in the first attached photo. The second shows its present state. I have some data in a file binder. This shows it was last MOT’d in March 2014, showing 80885 miles. It passed with one advisory on a track rod end ball joint having play. I have no knowledge of what work was done, if any, since then. However, on a quick inspection, the car is better than I had thought. It had a new leather interior fitted at some point apparently at a cost of £2500. This was for seats, door panels, headling, carpets, dash repairs console, etc. There is an estimate for this in the file with a deposit paid, undated but cannot be too long ago since it remains in excellent condition. The body appears sound, paint not too bad and will mostly polish back in my opinion (although of course not to Concours standard). There is a paint repair required to the top of one wing. Chassis appears sound. Wheels were removed and are stored separately.

It is a 1972 car. I cannot state if the colour is original, I suspect not. It is presently showing on SORN. There is limited documentation on the file and no invoices for service or repair work other than the interior as above. There are a number of spares which have recently been stored inside the vehicle. I cannot speak to their correctness or condition.

The contact is Ian Dewsnap, mobile 07501 485307

Difficult to say from the photos but is it not Capricorn Blue in colour - which would be original.

Hi
