That looks great, the interior looks to be in excellent condition too.

Good point I was still half asleep when I saw the photos - it reminds me of the Devon I once had.

Very nice. A work colleague had one in the early 60's - my first experience of power assisted brakes - press the pedal once for conventional braking, twice and the thing seemed to stand up on its nose. Very comfortable as well

Enjoy

just a short update I was only able to use the A90 for a week and then I lost all oil pressure and the engine was noisy so sent away to have the engine rebored and totally rebuilt engine is now ready to go back in the car one or two other jobs to be done ie new windscreen rubber and door window felt and fitting a new speedo cable then I should be able to use again will update later when I get it back

What was the cause of the oil pressure loss?
