eBay watch: 1970s Hillman Avenger DL Automatic – with just 2,500 miles on the clock

This car is amazing. it looks like someone has just nipped back to 1974, bought this Hillman Avenger DL Automatic and brought it back in a time machine.

Honestly, it really does give that impression. It's finished in a limited edition 'orange blossom' with a black trim and has had just one owner since new. That owner has covered just 2,544 miles. It has been taxed just once (the 1975 disc is still in the window, as is the retailer's sticker). it is also sold with the original supplying dealers wallet containing the owners manual and service booklet with a single stamp in September 1974 for its running in service.

Where has it been? Basically, the car was put in storage, then passed to a  collector who basically never really drove it. So as you would expect, the car is 'like new' with 'just a few tiny micro blisters' and some pitting on the rear bumper. Other than that, this is 1974 in a car.

The current price is £1,399. More images on the listing.
