The Car is in the same visual condition as it was when Freddie used it, but a modern alarm system (Cobra) has been added, and the vehicle has been converted to run on unleaded petrol. The car is in good condition, as you would expect for a car of this age that has been looked after, but used. It has the odd small patch of rust, mainly around the wheel arches and on the rear corners of the chrome bumpers. It is in good running order, the engine bay and undersides are clean and the bodywork is polished. The interior is clean, no tears and the leather shows the patina of age.
