Mot Expiry: Exempt

This immaculately-presented AX was apparently the property of a Lieutenant Colonel F E Manning back in 1961, and subsequently formed part of the Dennis Sharpe private collection for some 30 years before being offered for sale through Christie's in March 2003. Unsold it then passed to Orchid Cars from whom it was purchased by the previous owner, who set about its restoration. The vendor acquired the Renault in 2006 and completed the refurbishment by overhauling the steering box, radiator, magneto and commissioning a new bent ash hood frame and hood, and stainless steel exhaust, all to original specification plus a re-trimmed interior. The AX has since completed a variety of runs to France (achieving up to 425 miles in a week) and Germany, as well as such home-grown events at Silverstone and Donington, winning a few trophies along the way. 'BF 4025' comes complete with invoices, old MOTs and photos of the restoration. Having had a freshly overhauled rear axle at the cost of c.£2,000 available by separate negosation is a luggage truck and selection of spares.
