has spent two years negotiating with a New York based company to buy the iconic vehicle.The 48-year-old property developer said: “It is absolutely brilliant and I amreally over the moon to have it.

“I had some fun over the Easter weekend driving it around Windsor and it was a great success with people and tourists taking pictures.”

The Pontiac is to be used in the Monkees UK tour as part of their 45th anniversary, starting in Manchester on May 12.

Car lovers will be able to view it at the Historics Auction House in Brooklands Museum, Surrey, from May 17-18.
