History:
 

The car was purchased in the UK in 1975 and restored in Australia in 1980 with a  

metal (aluminium) boat tail body, and the original steel bonnet.  The engine was

reconditioned and fitted with a crank turned from a billet of steel and high

performances camshaft.  Robin purchased it in May 2004 and although the car was

in good average state, undertook a major restoration including new pistons/rings, con

rods and bearings, TC tail shaft and general mechanical tidy up. The body was then

taken back to bare metal and painted Monitor Grey (an original colour) and black

guards and wheels all low sheen to preserve period look.   New tyres and tubes

were fitted, the generator and regulator re-furbished, and the dash panel restored.
