I was offered this car by someone who contacted me via my website. It came with a few spares aswell.
The owner's father bought it in the 60's when he was 15, last MOT was 1974. It has been dry stored since then, and tyres kept up.
He repainted it, as you can see now it's flaking away. It deserves to be repainted of course!
The interior is very nice, original vinyl on the seats. The floor and dashboard have been repainted, unfortunately the chassis plate seems to have been removed sometime in the past. I will have to clean up the identification number on the chassis, below the drivers side door. Never easy reading the numbers there, as they usually rust in that area.
We will not be able to work on it straight away, we will not be able to bring it home "this trip", but we shopuld be picking it up soon after.
Once its home, the first thing to do would be get it running (check brakes, sort out engine, tyres, etc...).
This Nobel will hopefully end up being mine. I don't really want to, but I may sell my other Nobel to pay back my father (I want this Nobel!). Its better condition than mine obviously, and its all complete. It would be a lot cheaper too, since it could be done up with a "backgarden respray", for a nice tidyt car, but not too perfect either. Keep interior original!
Once it's home, I will take many more detailed pictures! Sorry for the bad quality of these pictures, I didn't realise that the camera lens on my phone was dirty!
I'll keep you up to date!
