You don't want one of them, they are far to much like hard work, just ask Andy Ham.

I'll give you £50 for it if you pay for the shipping.

Ha piece of piss,no rust,plenty of spares.
No pics taken at all yet
Always wanted some patina after painting the 59
Son reckons slam it with a 6 six inch beam
im in no hurry,i still need the 1776 running,ratio rockers were crud,it fooked the push rods and elephant feet adjusters.
new purchase has taken my mind off of it.

*********** SWEET **********

**** Nice car to start with ****

Nice and unmolested, just gone all weak at the knees.


A question about doors:
When was the last year for the internal rib that ran around the outside of the door panel?
