We thought this stunning 280 Brooklands was sold but our buyer has let us down at the 11th hour.
we have just done some very minor refurbishment on this.
Rectified a small oil leak and a few other minor jobs .
And it went off for its MOT the other day and the MOT Station said It was one of the cleanest they had ever seen.
It has come from long-term ownership, some 18 years previous owner, good friend of that chap who owned another eight or nine years .
Just 60,000 miles with a complete history from day one .
Handful of owners and just simply beautiful.
If you are being picky there is a minute bubble at the bottom of the passenger door, which nobody had noticed  we will get that done.

The grin  factor I have driving this.
It drives perfectly .
Without doubt one of the best out there .
We sold it for £31995 within days of advertising
And have been besieged with calls but we thought it was sold ..
so back on the market .
If anyone has a interest do get in touch .
