Currently being restored by us from the chassis up.  Similar to the car below which we restored in 2009.  Will be fully restored mechanically and body by ourselves.  The car will have a powder blue body with dark blue interior and hood.  This car is LHD but could be converted to RHD at an extra cost.

The task of repairing the bodywork is progressing well.  Although this car came from the US and the bodywork was mostly rust free, the boot floor had deteriorated badly.  The boot floor was cut out completely and a floor from a donor shell fitted.  The only other areas of rust were the sills, both sides and due to humidity these seem to have sweated and rusted from the inside out.  Both sides have been completely replaced.

At some stage, like most sports cars, this car had had a frontal accident and been poorly repaired.  The front shroud was cut away so the inner panels could be repaired correctly and a new radiator duct panel fitted.  The damage to the front shroud panel was repaired and once everything was lined up by trial fitting the front wings, the panel was fully welded back into place.
