Lot 119 - 1980 Suzuki SC100 GX 'Whizzkid'
|Odometer reading||55,465 miles|
|Result||Sold - £2,016|
Suzuki, in 1955, were the first company to launch a 'Kei' car, a micro vehicle designed to comply with Japanese tax and insurance regulations. In 1978, Suzuki transformed their domestic 'Cervo' model into the SC100, where in the UK market it was only available as a "lavishly equipped" GX model. This example, in Icelandic Metallic Blue, was sold new by Jem Marsh Ltd in 1980 to a Mrs McCord for £2,710.00 who used the car for 22 years until she retired from driving. The current owner for the past four years is a mechanical engineer for a very successful local Formula 1 Motoring Racing company, so the car has not been left wanting for mechanical upkeep. In 2011 the timing belt was replaced at 49,228 miles and more recently, it has been fully serviced and the compression on all four cylinders can be confirmed as being very good. The history files contains the original Japanese Suzuki Manufacture cards, new vehicle invoice, owners handbooks, service book and a large number of service receipts and MOT's across the years. It also benefits from ten months left to run on MoT test certificate and is best described as being in good original condition throughout.
