1947 ‘Y’ Type. Partially dismantled and garaged for many years after an abandoned restoration project. Bodywork, chassis, electrics and mechanical components are complete and in reasonable condition.

The car is not currently registered, the original log book was returned to the DVLA by a previous owner, but the re-registration process was never completed.
