History: Detailed PDF by John Murn here; summarised below:-

It was brought to Australia by Cliff Trefry in the late 1981 and purchased by John M., in the 1984. He ran it at historic meetings in regularity for a few years until its pitiful condition finally got to him and a (very) long restoration commenced. It was the subject of a local restoration, partially documented in a series of Australian Classic Car Magazine articles. The frame, body and paint was done by Sydney Vintage Restorations. Most of the other work was completed by Bob Winley at his Amaroo Park workshop.
