It retains all of its original features such as:
1600 petrol engine
Ring pull gearbox
Dip switch on the centre of the steering wheel
Metal spoke steering wheel
Single wiper motor
Spade back seats
Rear “D” lamps
It is also fitted with correct period 6.00 x 16 Avon Traction mileage tyres, original tow plate a lovely capstan winch, and has had indicators added for safety.
