• Inertia reel seat belts fitted to the original centre metal securing loop
• Strong engine that starts on the button and ideals well.

• 2 sets of matching keys.
• The interior is in excellent condition with no damage to the seats but the elastic has gone in the door pockets.
• Although the car has been MOT and Tax exempt for some time you can see that it had been MOT’d every year up until 2021 and has been used regularly since then. It did a trip of 75 miles yesterday.
