Haven't posted on here for about 8 years but spotted this February 82 GL with only 21k on it for sale on carandclassic and thought some folks may be interested - I was!

For me, the condition doesn't quite tie in with the stated history. In particular, it seems to have seen a lot more sun and rain than 8/9 years and 21,000 miles would suggest. Also, just 3 MOTs rather than the 6/7 expected up to 1990 are present, and apparently only the original of at least 2 V5 documents (last one issued Feb 2004 according to the GOV vehicle tax checker).
