1982 Austin Allegro 1.7 Vanden Plas
(Featured on 23rd May 2014)
Sellers original description:
Vanden Plas 1750.
Cars are often described by sellers of cars as time warp, however this 1750 Vanden Plas truly is!
It was purchased by its 1 former keeper new from Cox's (Sunwin) Austin Keighley in 1987 and has been dry stored and cared for meticulously ever since.
The car was so well kept it was a concourse winner in 1999 at Tatton Park (engine bay), the car has only covered 39,000 genuine miles since new and this can be seen both inside and out.
These cars are becoming more sought after and are appreciating in value by the week given their scarcity.
Externally this particular car is very sound with no rot or rust present, with the paintwork in fantastic condition.
Mechanically the car is a pleasure to drive with a very strong 1750cc engine which pulls the car very well.
The Braking system works as it should and pulls the car up very well, the cars transmission is also noise free and good as one would expect from such a low mileage car.
The interior of the car is in near perfect order with lovely brown leather seats and walnut as per Vanden Plas spec.
The engine bay of the car again is extra ordinary (show winning) with chrome and paint modifications paint stakingly carried out by the previous owner.
Should the screen price be raised the car will be serviced before leaving us, as well as waxoyling the underside of the car to preserve its great condition.
The car will also have a new MOT and 6 months tax on leaving us.
Transport can be arranged nationally at a pre agreed rate.
The car was one of the last off of the production line in 1982 and was purchased by its one and only owner from Cox's Austin in Keighley,
It's new owner had nowhere to keep the car so it was warehoused for him by Cox's until its registration on a D plate (1987).
Which makes the car a very unique car indeed.
The paintwork is also as it came to him from the main dealer.
