We have just unearthed a 1982 FL2 hire car which has been standing around for a number of years stacked high in a local yard. This cab is the hire car version of the FX4R but it is a special body Tickford car with very special very high back rear seats, full west of England cloth interior, high level mounted air conditioning, front air con, an old push button radio mounted in a rear console cocktail cabinet. It also has long flexy map lights either side, rear electric windows, cig lighters either side, and an extra front seat. There is a remarkable 72.000 miles on the clock and the body is amazing in that it is in not unreasonable condition even standing outside all of the years. What is also quite remarkable is that on placing a new battery in the car, it stated ok, and we were able to drive it around the yard, but with no brakes of course, however even the power steering works ok.
This will be restored to its former glory with a full engine and body overhaul, new chrome plating, tyres, exhaust, full glass out repaint, full interior makeover, full a/c system restoration and will certainly be a real looker when completed
