This has to be one of the finest Audi 100s we’ve seen. Sold by us to the current owner for his collection back in 2011, the car is even nicer than we remember. The period metallic brown paintwork presents to a lovely standard throughout with a deep shine, uniform colour, and sharp metallic flake all round. The original brightwork also appears in great shape with only minor age-related marking to report on close inspection. There are no signs of moisture ingress to any of the lights, and in the windows you’ll find a nice selection of original stickers, including one for the Ziebart rust-proofing treatment as applied to this car in 1976! All in all, a remarkably well preserved and highly original example with only 38k miles from new.
The cabin is a truly splendid place to be and is a real testament to the superb fit and finish Audi are so well known for; it’s also incredibly spacious for both front and rear occupants. The seats remain in magnificent order showing almost no signs of use, the door cards are free from any marks or scratches, and even the light-coloured carpets are still in fantastic condition. Everything appears exactly as it should for the mileage, the only real negative being a couple of very minor cracks atop the dash that could easily go unnoticed.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The car feels incredibly tight on test. The 1.9-litre engine delivers its power smoothly via the four-speed manual ‘box that’s a pleasure to operate. The car fires into life first turn of the key and idles up to temperature without fuss. Lifting the bonnet, the engine bay presents in good solid condition and is still protected by the original Ziebart rust-proof coating – it may not be the prettiest sight but it has certainly kept any potential rust issues at bay.
Under current ownership the Audi has been part of an extensive private collection of classic cars. It has seen only very light use during this time but has always been properly stored and maintained accordingly by the collection’s caretaker. Since arriving at 4 Star we have had the car fully inspected for the new keeper’s peace of mind.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The Audi sits on the correct 14-inch steels with the original domed hubcaps. Looking closely there is some expected curb marking to each of the wheel covers but overall they appear bright, still retaining a smart polished finish with the right Audi centre emblems. The wheels are shod in a matching set of Falken tyres that have seen next to no use.
This lovely low mileage example was first registered in May 1973. It was supplied new by Cumnor Hill Service Station Limited, Oxford. Given the low mileage of 38k it’s no surprise that the Audi has spent most of its life in storage. The majority of the mileage was done before 1988, by which time the car had driven 37k miles. It was then safely tucked away and did not see the light of day again until 2001. The car has seen only the lightest of use since that time, covering little over 1,200 miles in the last 19 years. The History File is complete with plenty of old MOTs dating back to 1976 that help to verify the low mileage. The accompanying paperwork also includes the original Audi document wallet, owner’s manuals, stamped service booklet, invoices including the Ziebart rust-proofing treatment from 1976, and even the bill of sale from when the car sold to its second owner in 1975!
