Acquired by Vintage Wheels in 1997 from a dealer in Northampton in poor condition and complete rebuild was undertaken over the following year including complete upholstery change and full body repaint to present colour.
In its early days it was used in the southern states of America, hence little rust!
Very popular car since purchase by present owner and has been used extensively for film work including several episodes of Downton Abbey and for weddings and school proms.
In 2012 the engine was extensively damaged when it threw a connecting rod which effectively wrote off the engine. It is now fitted with a V8 unit of 4.2 litre capacity which was ‘rescued’ from a French army truck and which transformed the overall performance of the car, would be quite fast if driven stupidly, which it isn’t!
