Want something different to restore that no one else has
This car recently came to light from a back garden shed in Ely. nbsp;The late owner used to have his own car garage many many years ago so could have been made there as there was no evidence of any other parts with the car when found. we now know it has a Standard gearbox 4 speed with reverse top left. I think the engine is possible from a Standard 8hp from 1945 to 1948 and the 13" rims look like there from a A35(current wheels are from a Corsa)? most of the car apears brand new and never used as though its been made from new components. the front suspension I cant place is new? the brake master cylinder also. This might sound odd but looking at the lines of the door and the way the front comes right down reminds me of Triumph TR2 kind of. but the square arches? the car appears very well made and a lot of thought has gone into making it. The boot lid has a lever inside the passenger side to open it and the spare wheel is in a tray under the car and released by a catch in the boot. the back seat base has a diaphram in it and should be filled with air.
I have found an Engine number BC3013F and the engine has a Lucas distrubuter. Engine turns freely. nbsp;Lucas 2 bobin regulator there is also a small oil pressure gauge fitted in the engine bay which says Eureka(Tomey Birmingham Makers) under the back seat there is space for 2 6 volt batterys.
There is still lots of work to do. there is no steering colum or rear brakes. front suspension needs finishing. there are no shock absorbers. a car you can put your own mark on.
