  • Color Monaco White
  • Price 2500
  • Year 1976

  • Description Pretty tidy, original car, undergoing overhaul having been off the road since 1999. Previous owner since 1979, installed a new galv chassis and generally looked after the car well. Haven't had her running yet but working hard to get her on the road in 2017 - to celebrate my half century!!



Just joined, have had a similar 501 in mauve (purple) with white interior for some two years now. It's a proper head turner. I need some help though as recently I lost reverse. Can you recommend someone please? Am in the greater London area. Took it to a transmission specialist who quoted me £1300-£1500 and told me it sounded like nails and may need an engine rebuild costing another £10k as to work on transmission engine needs to come out. Also would you know where to get spares?

Many thanks,
