Something I forgot to mention: During the restoration process one accumulates an overflow of extra bits and parts and there are boxes of spares that will be included with the car. This includes an extra set of cam cover gaskets. various grommets and clips. extra bulbs for the interior light over the rear window. bulbs for the boot light. fasteners. and other parts of interest. Also. the rear spring gaiters are not installed but are brand new and will be included. The springs are new and I just didn't want to cover them up. All of the clips for the tools that mount in the boot. although only the spat removal tool is available and plugs for the jack. etc.
