Talking Free to a good home

After a long chat with the kids and despite almost being one of the family, it's time to go. I've had by eyes open for some time, checking out the slender lines of the more race like young models.

I'm afraid the beam is a bit to big for us and the body work has seen better days.

She still ticks over, however there's a lot of mumbling and groaning and the big end.........is well Big

The Exhaust is worn and seems to be blowing more than it should and the polishing seems to take longer and longer each time and still doesn't look as good as it did when she was new.

She comes complete with her own upholstery, plenty of history and has been well serviced over the years by myself. She has been well lubricated and has definitely loosened up over the years, so might say well worn!

So there we have it, one unwanted Wife free to a good....................sorry free to any home!
