  • Description

    This fabulous little car is well known to us at HPC Classics (Known as Percy) and has attended a few of our events too, so you may have already seen it in person. It commands a lot of attention and admiring looks everywhere you go. Being a MK3 it has the prettier rear end, hence it looking just so pretty on the road. The paintwork and chrome is in good condition, not perfect, but solid and completely rust free, which is the important thing.

     

    This is an honest car with thousands spent on recent upgrades to prepare the car for a summer of entertainment. So, it drives, handles and goes exactly as you’d either expect or remember them to and will want for absolutely nothing, bar driving and enjoying it. Take a look at the updates list to see just how fresh this car really is.

     

    With nimble steering, light controls and an almost modern seating position, even for the loftier driver, there’s plenty of comfort to do longer tours and weekend jaunts, or just to take your picnic basket out for the day!

     

    With it’s full stainless exhaust and the fizzy 1300cc engine, this car makes all of the right noises, along with it’s recent upgrades, it is a car you can really drive and attack the corners in, the only thing out of control may be the grin on your face!
