If you’re in the market for an Interstyl Hustler 6, your luck is in. This wonderful one-owner model has been found after almost two decades languishing in a suburban garage in the West Midlands, and it’s being offered for sale. The car, which comes with a full set of documentation, is being offered on a ‘sealed bid’ basis.
You can read all about the Towns Hustler on AROnline, but it’s an exclusive thing, especially as it’s one of the wooden-bodied cars. The Hustler was launched in 1978 amid much hype as it came from the fertile mind of the man who brought us the Aston Martin Lagonda, and would go on to design the Aston Martin Bulldog.
This car was ordered in 1982 and was built by 1987, when it was used regularly and soon became well known among the locals. As far as we can tell from its MoT history, it remained on the road until the late-1990s, when its owner garaged it in his West Midlands home, where it has remained since. It comes with tons of paperwork which includes the original bill of sale, blueprints for the car, letters from William Towns and a selection of MoT certificates.
It’s been under cover since around 2000 in a well-ventilated, dry, concrete garage and, other than a thick coat of dust, looks to be in rude health bodily. The original owner of the car died a few years ago, and his wife is now is in residential care – the money from the Hustler’s sale will be used to help finance that.
So, if you are interested in buying it, please drop me an email and I will try to answer your questions. I will forward the details of anyone interested in making a sensible offer for the Hustler 6 to a family member handling the sale (I am not making anything from the sale). The car is located in the West Midlands and the seller is hoping it finds a new owner before the house where it is currently garaged is sold off – possibly by early March.
Anyway, watch the video and let me know what you think!
