Vehicle statistics include a 2994cc OHV pushrod "Essex" V6 (as used in Ford's Capris and Granadas), a 4 speed manual gearbox with overdrive (making it comfortable for long distance cruising), rear wheel drive and top speed of 118mph, 0-60mph in 9.4 seconds. This vehicle had the flip-up sunroof fitted in 1989, the engine was reconditioned in 1990, the gearbox was rebuilt in 2006, plus Gaz adjustable shocks, a Motolita steering wheel was fitted in 2009, and polybushes in 2013, plus S/S B-pillars and wheelnuts.

The current owner purchased the vehicle in 2016 and since ownership, the following work has been carried out: the chassis has been rustproofed, sump and rocker gaskets replaced; new coolant and fuel hoses; fluids; electronic ignition, rotor arm, cap, leads, plugs, belts, radiator and fan. The vendor says this vehicle is mechanically up together however the paintwork needs attention.
