History of Car and any work or modifications carried out: This Car was found in a factory unit in Birmingham, in the early 2000’s requiring a full restoration, the owner was traced and agreed to sell the car. The restoration was started almost immediately and then the owner lost interest and sold the car in about 2008. The new owner then completed the restoration and resprayed the car BMC flame red (originally Blaze Orange). I then purchased the car in 2012 and have used it during summer months only, since that time. The car is more or less standard with a few sympathetic modifications as follows: front wings and bonnet replaced, single silencer exhaust system, alloy rocker cover, walnut effect dash, electric windscreen washer pump. The car is serviced and parts replaced as required to keep the car in a roadworthy and useable condition to permit usage whenever I wish to take it out.
