"In the last year, the car has received a cambelt, water pump, windscreen, green stuff brake pads, and service work. It drives and operates smoothly, and it always puts a smile on your face."


The current owner purchased the car last year with the intention of keeping it in his sports car collection, but he now has other plans and needs garage space. As he wished to maintain the car, the owner has fixed a lot of things on it in the last year, as shown below: -
Water pump
Drive belt
Petrol Filter
Air/Oil filter
Motor/Gearbox oil
Spark plugs
Brake fluid, Rear brake Callipers/Disc, Front disc
Windscreen wipers
Renovated 17" alloy wheels painted in Antracit (932)
Tires and wheel nuts
Handbrake pads and wire
Greenstuff brake pads all round
Side indicators
Rear exhaust section from Simons¨
S70 door handles
Wiper free headlights

The car runs and drives well, with a very tight drivetrain, and all the electrics function apart for the AC. The interior is clean, with only minor traces of wear. The bodywork is straight, and the paintwork is good with some clear coat release dots on the roof and boot lid and some surface rust on the lower under edges of the doors and a surface rust area in the corner of the drives side sill "See photographs"

Despite these criticisms, the car nevertheless looks good and drives well.

  • Mechanical condition:

    As previously stated, the car has recently had a lot of expensive work done on it, and aside from the AC, I see nothing that needs to be fixed. Older receipts and inspection reports are included, as well as a handbook, but no service book and a missing spare wheel.

  • Interior condition:

    All the electrics work, including the windows, mirror, seat, and roof. It also includes heated back seats and tinted windows from the factory. No pixelation on the displays. The Interior is in good condition, with clean mats, seats, and headliner, with only minor evidence of wear on the driver's seat.

  • Exterior condition:

    Overall, the car appears to be in good condition. As previously said, it has some minor dots on the roof and bonnet from clear coat release and surface rust on the lower edges of the doors and driver-side corner sill. Stone chips on the hood and touch-up above the rear passenger door. Clean underbody. "See pictures" for a receipt for alloy wheel renovation and new tyres worth 11800kr.

  • General condition:

    These cars are highly popular "young timers" all over the world and are getting increasingly difficult to find, therefore here is a good car to enjoy and expect a price increase in the future.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
Important to know before placing your bids!
  • Once you have called in an item and the reservation price is reached we want you to deposit the entire purchase amount into our client funds account before retrieval can take place.
  • When you need to retrieve a called in object we want you to examine it carefully. If you consider that the item does not match our description you do not need to complete the purchase. In this case the deposited purchase sum and the entry fee are refunded.
  • If you do not examine the item on the spot the call charge will be debited, but you do not have to complete the deal.
  • If you make the entire purchase exclusively at a distance you have 14 days to cancel, but must return the item at your own expense.
  • Your shipping costs and other costs are not reimbursed when the right of withdrawal is exercised. Swedish court applies.
