Agree thee is a lot of lovely period detail on this from the "Left Hand Drive" sign on the back to the original interior. I'd like to see an engine bay picture.

Just shows your there are still some amazing finds out there.

Thanks ZA Perana, yes the vehicle will be put up for sale in the next week or two. Its a bit premature at the moment as we are still gaining info, cleaning the car up and preparing for a sale.
The owners are compiling a whole story about its history, they absolutely love this car, and love reminiscing about the old days. I for one am very excited to read it. I will post a link once its done.

We managed to get the car running on its own, we did fuel lines and new fuel pump. She purrs beautifully.. next week the exhaust is going to get done, car removed off its stands and for the very first time those tyres are going to touch the ground!!! They were fitted brand new a few years ago, nourished and bagged up. We haven't removed the plastic yet, but I sure they going to be amazing condition still.
Then we going to give her a good bath!!!

Engine bay pics!

We definitely want this car to go to someone that will preserve the vehicle and do touch ups, that will see the vehicle for what it is and appreciate it.

Incredible car. I am really looking forward to reading its story.

I do hope it goes to a good home as original survivors like this are very, very rare.

Nice work on your car.
Need to take a break. My set of foose wheels and toyo tires arrived. I'll be replacing the wheels on my own.
