Hi Anne-Marie,

There aren't many good examples of those around now and there are many niggling issues that you'll get on older cars, such as seized bonnet hinges and a noisy handbrake cable.

Make sure the car is running ok, as there's a known issue with the engine control module, another with the throttle body and another with the throttle position sensor. The speedo readout could be erratic due to a faulty vehicle speed sensor, the steering column can cause a knocking sound and so can the steering rack.
