Good luck Deryck.
Keep us posted, it should inspire me to get on with mine... A great car with some memorable pictures taken with Sellers 'gooning' around in it. I remember test driving that very car at Hunter Classics many moons ago, probably mid 1980's, went around a corner, the battery fell off its perch and disconnected itself. Still should have bought it, from memory it was around £6K for a very slightly scruffy but original up and running car.
Cheers

Jeez I'd doubt that you would want Britt Ekland jumping out of the boot these days.

Sorry Rohan, but even she admits getting plastic surgery in her 50's was a bad idea...... :(
