Ooft, that is lovely. Just look at the MOT history!

It does barely any miles. Petrol, so probably a BX14. I wonder if it'll stay condisering it's not driven much, if at all, or if it'll become another victim of the ULEZ charge and get auctioned off on eBay.

C99 VLA is a silver 19GT. Good spot!

It was also subitted to the register in 2020, so it's safe to assume it's in enthusiast hands :)

It's a very well-kept one too. In silver no less!

Most mk1s are well-kept now, thankfully.

The Broadway, Ealing W5 !
Yet more geographic coincidences: I grew up in Ealing, and went to school (often by Trolleybus) on The Green, W5.
At aged 12, I literally ran into Sid James in Tesco's, while running along an aisle.
Spent my gap year ('66-'67) with Traffic Department, London Borough of Ealing...

Golly, gosh :roll:

25 miles in 2yrs, that's less than very infrequent use, very lucky to spot it then.

It looks like it, one of the years saw it only do a single digit amount of miles. Beats the incredibly low 300 miles per year my Micra did with its previous owner!
