Nigel originally was sold in San Diego, but found his way to Spokane, Washington, where the seller is the fourth owner. By the way, the advertisement notes, the third owner did extensive mechanical work to keep Nigel road worthy.
That work included cylinder head and valve machining, gasket, brakes — rotors, pads, lines — all new fluids throughout and new tires.
“There is one spot of rust underneath the battery on the battery tray, it is very minor,” the seller notes. “I cleaned up the area and found that it was merely surface rust.”
The ad notes that Nigel has never been involved in any sort of mishap and that the car is in “mint” condition inside and out.
“We are both sad to see him go but it does not make sense for us to keep him,” the selling son adds. “There could be someone out there that will take care and love him as we did. That is all we can hope, is that he will be taken care of.”
Mom-and-son are asking $9,000 for their proper British gentleman who has traveled only 86,500 miles since arriving from the UK.
