Nigel & Jade’s K Reg Sportline
October 30, 2016 Hugh Coffey

Its registered as K783 EUJ and was purchased by us on 02/10/2016 with 91,000 miles showing. The VIN is WVWZZZ15ZMK036298

Prior to us, it had been in the same family in Stoke on Trent since 1996, but somehow has still had 5 previous owners!

A number of plate changes are recorded which may be of interest to other members:
K688 DVT on 01/05/1993 (1st registration)
J3 TUR on 28/09/1993
B19 BEV on 15/04/1996
K783 EUJ on 08/08/1998

Since our purchase it’s had around £2000 spent on mechanical parts/labour – full brake replacement, cam belt, service, bushes, radiator, gear linkage, clutch/bulkhead repair, Magnecor HT leads etc, so it’s starting to get there. I’ve also fitted a set of fully refurbished BBS RA’s on it with new Continentals, these are powder coated with polished rims and bought from Bert in Belgium via the Mk1 Owners Club forum.

Next on the list is to fix the leaky roof and eventually a full original spec resto/respray to come next year. Otherwise we will be enjoying it as a daily driver.

Very welcome to the club – looks like a tidy one!
