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.
Major restoration started 2004.
