******** 04.08.2014 James Murray *********************************************

I've now bought this car as of March 2014.

The car was driven home to the UK from Holland in one day. The car go loads more attention that the other classics heading for the Goodwood Members meeting that same day. The car drove really well but mechanically was in need of a little work.

I've given the car a replacement Differential, new uprated rear UJs, springs and shock absorbers, upper and lower front wishbones and had a revotec fan fitted. The chassis is in excellent condition and the paint is immaculate - although the interior could do with a light re-trim.

The car is my only and daily driver, and have taken me across the UK (Southend on sea to Oxford to Cardiff and back to Oxford) in one day and successfully drove to and back from the Le Mans Classic this year without any problems.

No plans to modify it, instead just maintain it for future owners, refurbish the wheels, small interior retrim and to keep on using it
