Nice! Too bad you couldn't enjoy it restored, but it is cool to know you sold it to the right person, somebody who appreciated it and restored it so nicely.

About

Surprising car despite its age, especially coming shortly after the end of the 2nd World War. Quite heavy but drove well, although a bit suspect on cornering!
Had planned to refurbish the car, but didn't complete this so sold the car after a couple of years. 12 months later, the guy who bought it came to visit and it looked like it just came out of the factory. Was I jealous!

Couldn't find a pic of mine, but just like the photo.

Specs

2-seater front-engined convertible
Signal red with tan interior; tan tonneau; black soft-top (never used it)
1991cc straight 4 (originally a tractor engine!), 90bhp

Factory Options

None

Mods

Replaced shot gearbox with TR3 unit +new clutch assembly.
Stripped all bodywork forward of the bulkhead, but never got round to replacing it!
Had new side-screens made up as fed up of getting wet elbows!
