Thanks Rob

Only this week somebody mentioned previously owning an Excel with white & red leather interior, something I'd not seen/ noticed before.

I'm not sure of its age as it appears to me to be :

Speedlines, so guess SE

Later style dash,so guess SE

Early style spoiler, so guess pre-SE
Mirrors early style, so guess pre-SE.


Do you have an age (plate), and indication of the engine (cam covers, air intake)?



Value will greatly depend on paint condition and engine condition, as both are massive costs and a good example with a decent engine and decent paint can be obtained for not too many £1000s, whereas the other jobs mean it's nowhere near as expensive to bring it back to a decent running car.

your gonna spend at least a grand just servicing/cam belts and fettling for the mot.

good luck - if you don't fancy it - pm me the details - I like it - a lot
