2004 (54 reg) 75 Connie Tourer Starlight Silver SOLD
SALE COMPLETED - Thankfully to another longstanding Club Member who arrived in his wife's 75 Saloon. I'm much relieved at that as the car is much, much to good to be broken for spares. ALL of the proceeds will be used to improve the ZTT further.

Mine for such a very long time and meant to go to my eldest son when he finally took and passed his test. That was in the lead in to COVID. Now he's working in Gateshead and living just over the Tyne in Newcastle. He sees no point in taking test as the Tyne & Wear public transport is much better and cheaper than in rural North Yorkshire. So now I have the ZTT Tourer, the 75 has to go.

It's coming up to 185k miles, bodywork decent. MoT until 6 December 2022. All work has been carried out by the same workshop (Tim Brown & Son, Stokesley) which I have used for all my cars for the last 30 years and I can get a printout of this and email. The main exception is when I personally replaced the HPFP (reconditioned exchange unit from PF Jones, Bosch accredited) and hydramount (Rimmers).

Please note that I made the mistake of putting it on SORN and standing for a while. In consequence it had a substantial MoT failure resulting in new brake pipes, discs etc. and other work. See my posts and request work history to verify whatís happened with it.
Drove it to Scotland and back last month and still alternate itís use with the ZTT.
