Original battery tray and it's solid with no rust. 14" Clover leaf alloy wheels. Front spot lights and fog lights. 5 speed gearbox. It has that XR3i exhaust note. It looks as though as has been garaged most of it's life and very solid underneath. Starts hot or cold. Drives well with quiet engine and no smoke, knocks or rattles. Panel gaps are good and straight. Original date stamped wings. Will bring back memories when you drive it. Has been on TV, at the start of ' Bancroft ' and a film called ' VS '. , also in a film called ' Farming ' out in October. Has had a small roof repair just below the rear window and its watertight. Apart from the small back box its standard all round including suspension and wheels etc. It's not perfect but it's clean, tidy and presentable, a usable classic that's fun to drive.

From the first phone call to driving away in my new car it was a hassle (and stress) free experience. We were very impressed with the customer service from Chris and his team. D Murtagh
Fantastic car, friendly helpful staff, will definitely be back!! J Mealing
The knowledgeable and honest sales staff at Emerald Motors made our latest car purchase an enjoyable endeavour Mrs C Barnes
Thanks to Chris and his staff for all their help. We absolutely love our new car!! Mr and Mrs Webber
The sign over the office door says ‘no pressure friendly sales’ – and its true! Mark Williams
I would recommend Emerald Motor Company without hesitation and it will be the first place we look when we’re ready for another car. The sales staff were all extremely helpful and the cars were presented beautifully. John and Valerie Beaumont
I thought buying a first car for my daughter would be a nightmare but the guys at Emerald Motor Company were so helpful I actually enjoyed the experience! Thanks to Chris and Co. John Phillips
The car was exactly as described on the website and over the phone, we will be recommending Emerald to all our friends. The Trent Family
This is the second car I’ve bought from Emerald Motor Company and I’m just as happy with it as I was with the first. See you again in a few years! Kay Winters
Professional and courteous staff who really went the extra mile for us, great selection of cars too. Martin Jones
You were polite and courteous to us when we called in to view the vehicle and there was no pressure at all on your part. You allowed us to take the vehicle for an extended test drive to enable us to make a reasoned decision on whether we liked the vehicle. The vehicle is a fine car to drive, very responsive and economical too. A very clean, nice and tidy motor. So far, we are extremely pleased with our purchase and are likely to return in the future. Ian Elvin
If like me you find second dealers hard to trust then your worries are over with emerald motors. Chris the owner is a man who doesn't go the extra mile for you but goes two more just to make sure you have totally peace of mind...really in all my dealing over the decades with car buying none can compare in what he did to make the whole buying experience as secure and trouble free as possible. It is with great pleasure I can write a very positive experience with Chris and would highly recommend him to anyone who needs peace of mind. M. Manklow
