For sale Purchased by me in July 1988. Ex Dallas Fort Worth. Texas. in a very original condition - but paint and trim was very sun dried and with a slipping clutch- this was soon replaced and the car ran and drove very well. which seemed to confirm the speedometer reading of 71. 00 could be correct.
Poor health and house move put restoration on hold until the mid 90s. The car was then completely dismantled and the body was totally rust free and sound - also the chassis the same. the engine stripped and found to be ok and re-assembled.
The body was stripped of all the trim and chrome work and reprinted OEW. not red- a personal choice.
The chassis was cleaned and painted with truck quality paint.
When painted and rebuilt. it was sent to Suffolk and Turley for a complete trim of seats. doors. hood etc.  Also prior to this. new bucket seats had been made and the bonnet louvred by RS Panels. The chrome work on the car is 99% original.   When completed in late 1999. the car was licensed in May 2000 and has provided many miles of motoring in the UK and Europe.   In the winter of 2004. a new engine and transmission plus overdrive was supplied by VSE. also a power lock diff was fitted.
The reason for sale is we are both in our late 70's and feel it is time to pass the car on with many happy memories.
Any other questions please ask.  
Thank you for looking.
