Taken when they first arrived in the workshop at my new location.

I moved them both in the back of A LUTON VAN with a tail lift lol

only two of us at the time we got a round of applause from a pro removals company when we was unloading them.

I'm glad the engines were not in them geeeeze they were heavy enough lol.

I have 1st coated the roof and engine bay simply to preserve them while I worked on the rest of the car the shell is better than I expected to be honest with minor repairs needed after wing replacements. More prep and paint will be added for a high quality finish. at the same time as the main body. Its comming on well. more body pics comming soon

Well you requested pictures........... There you go just to get you Intrigued lol

 

Just looking to build a solid tidy car to sell to be honest. should be a great car to either custom or make very original for the next owner.

 

Either way I kind want to keep it but its was never the plan so..... Simply replacing every item it needs with new or well re-conditioned.

to make a sound car to be enjoyed. I have just finished overhalling the hydrolastic system new lines and sound good displacers.

 

R.A.C.E in the nw looked after me there Big Thank You.
