The car toppled over, but it luckily only sustained a few minor paint chips. 




Apart from it's windswept venture on Monday, the heritage cableway was last operational in 1974.

The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway's team, who re-positioned the cableway into its upright position again, promises to have the Heritage car back "in tip top condition for the festive season".

The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway is fully operational regardless of the incident, but is currently closed due to bad weather conditions.
