Here is the elusive beast, photo taken 'somewhere in France' whilst attending the French National meeting in 2003.
I had bought the car a few months earlier, it was on the road, but would clearly need attention when the current MOT expired. I quickly tidied up a few areas of the body, and took the car to France that year, it ran well and has only 37,000 miles on the clock. Restoration will be a major job due to some extensive rust in the sills and front jacking points, so for now it slumbers in it's lair...
