XEA 707 S was first registered 6th of January 1978 and comes with previous MOTs dating back to 1985 when mileage was 71,423. Now still with only 97558 showing, has only covered a further 28,000 miles in 37 years. Along with the old mots there is a file full of invoices showing over 10,000 pounds has been spent getting this car right in the last 10 years. Below is a summary of this work.
In 2007 the car was recommissioned after being in storage for 10 years. Had new cylinder head, new fuel lines, carb reconditioned, new points, plugs and condenser. New brake pipes. New front brake Callipers, n/s rear wheel bearing. Overhaul rear brake callipers. New coil, Fuel filter, water pump new hoses, Fuel filter, Viscous fan. Manual choke fitted in 2011. Replacement off-side fuel tank, door seals, washer pump, uv joints, top front suspension joints, lower front suspension joints, rear brake discs and pads, handbrake pads, shock absorber bushes, alternator, off-side rear wheel bearing, 4 tyres in 2012. In 2013 – distributor cap and plug leads recon carb, new plugs, Header tank, electric aerial, speedo cable.
The car was collected and driven back from Cornwall last year. The fuel gauges have stopped working recently, everything else works as it should. The vendor does say that although bright, shiny and straight there are areas of the paintwork that could be improved, plus a couple of the rear side window seals have failed and need replacing, if you want to make it a show car? If not then leave it as is and you will have a very nice driving, good looking car.
With a current MOT through to January next year, this rare and very sought after “Big Coupe” is ready to go.

Auctioneers notes: This coupe is sold without reserve. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the paintwork has a poor finish. Having said that she is a very usable rare coupe.
