Black Mk1 Sterling Cardiff

Post by Richard C » Sat Dec 10, 2011 5:12 pm

I had to visit a Cinema in Cardiff today with work so I travelled along the M4 came off and went into Cardiff via the A48 as I came down there to my complete amazement a Mint Black Mk1 Sterling came down a slip road and joined in front of me. Anyone we Know?? F598 FET

Sorry this is a terrible photo but I had to fumble about in me bag to get the phone out to grab the photo which was taken into the sun hence the blown out hightlights.

Not seen another Mk1 outside of a meet or show for years now.

This is now for sale in Wiltshire http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C547086#.

Apparently headgasket issues, but perhaps could be an easier fix.

Still looks beautiful.
