Wow, now I am twice as jealous.
That car has had a nice rebuild at some stage.
Can't understand how someone can spend that much attention on a car and then just leave it parked to gather dust.
1 persons loss is your gain.

would like some history but it was last regod with police numbers so weather it has had a front end swap who knows.

All the shocks look brand new no marks or even tar on them front springs still have king springs sticker on them exhaaust has no dicoloration tip looks like it was put on last week.
The engine bay i started cleaning it today has had VH40 fitted and the harness fiddled with has had a valve lube bottle hooked up.
Either the oil bath air cleaner is NOS or been fully recod has a new sticker on it and very shiny clean paint.


Am trying to get time to do brakes next week.

Took it for a hot lap down the road yesterday

i should have stayed in the shed pulled up about 10 ks down the back road of the mine centre of rusty radiator cap blew off letting coolant go everywehere smoke pouring from front brake so a very slow trip back to the workshop and a few things to fix.

I am going to remove all wheel cylinders and have them re sleeved in stainless.

Pete

Like all the other comments it is a great find.

Obviously gives you a buzz to think that all it needed was some TLC to bring it back to life.

Well done

I'll start by saying I know very little about paint.
I was under the impression that these cars were painted in acrylic lacquer. If so, I bought some Royal Marine about 9 months ago.

Beautiful car. Truly sorry to hear about the damage.
