This charming special was created in the 1980s by the vendor using an original Type 65 chassis, no. 184776. The decision was taken to avoid fitting doors to maintain rigidity and the car has been maintained to a good standard, having been used on numerous VSCC rallies and driving tests during the current ownership. Treated to a respray around five years ago, the green and black paintwork continues to look very smart. Accompanied by a buff logbook dating from 1949 and Swansea V5C document, AFY 630 is ready to continue to provide a great deal of fun at low cost. The detailed specification includes:
