Lovely jubbly, now that is a beauty, there will be many very envious on-lookers when you take that out. Very nice find, I think Renault might be interested in it.

This here is on the money I think you’ll find Renault would be very interested in it.

Original tyres were actually Michelin Mxv 195 x55x13

So refreshing to see an original phase 1 wearing its original paint and without ugly panel gaps most of these have because they've been messed about with... pearl White is probably the rarest colour

can we see some pics of the whole car ?

The car currently still has 2 MXVs, not been available for years, uniroyals are old stock now, Avon use the MXVs moulds now, costly however, but worth it.

I am very happy with the car will upload more pictures tomorrow

I love the seat fabric. Looks like one of mr beans suits. I really like cars like this that you just never see anymore.
