Body & Trim….

Cosmetically the car is very good. Being a black (Well Halcyon Hebrides) car, it does have one or two patches of light road rash/chips on the front end, and also one or two marks inside the door shuts. Barring those areas, the bodywork is very very good. They are not that bad, and could be lived with by the vast majority, but they are there and we like to be straight-forward on these things.

The interior is excellent. The leather, carpet, and headlining are all excellent.

All four wheels are clean and free from any curbing. The tyres are matching Goodyear Eagle F1’s with around 6mm of tread remaining.

The chassis condition matches the rest of the car.

The Drive…

To drive, well, this car just needs to be driven to be appreciated. It’s the best Tuscan we can remember driving for a fair old while. “If you want a thrill, this fits that bill”.

We can send videos and any additional photos or information that might be helpful should this prove more convenient.  We do sell an awful lot of our cars without people viewing them in person.

Should have any questions, please get in touch.

Nationwide delivery also available – Ask for a quote.

We do think this is a rare opportunity to purchase a special car. We hope you agree. 🙂
