A charming thing indeed.
Looks better with the chrome bumpers.
I do like Maxis. My late father owned four, one K reg, two P reg and finally a series 2 X reg (which my brother bought from him
and subsequently wrote off). They have a full 4' width across the boot floor, very handy and to say that my father exploited this
load carrying capability is to understate things enormously
The X reg one was bought new. The dealer (MacRae and Dick) managed to fit the towbar in the wrong place
. My father got
a local blacksmith to modify the towbar to reposition the ballhitch in the centre of the car. MacRae and Dick paid for that.
Surprisingly M&D are no longer in business here.
When he bought the second P reg Maxi, my father had looked at a Dolomite 1500HL, but decided against buying it because there were
somewhat odd circumstances. It had belonged to a Doctor who had disappeared (believed to have committed suicide by jumping
off a cliff into the sea) and hadn't been found. The Maxi came with a full tank of petrol
but no spare wheel. My father
complained and was given a wheel c/w a split new tyre. The salesman wasn't best pleased that on his day off work the
manager had sold the Maxi and told my father so. Not long after the salesman got convicted of fraud and sent to prison.
A few years after his release he was again convicted of the same offences whilst employed at another dealership.
Hope the sale is successful.
