I have not built such a new car for a very long time but I have wanted one of these since I was 17 and I have known Martin who owned it for over 10 years but he kept turning me down when offered to buy it. Just before Christmas he finally gave in and said I could have it as he will never get round to building it.
It came without engine but included an Anglia axle and a set of lotus rims the basis for a simple period build.
Usual rot, doors, rear valence,rear corners, heel arches, wing bottoms. Sills are not rotten but badly fitted in the early 80's so need redoing.
Chassis and main floor apart from a few holes and old plates seems ok.
Started on the 25th Feb so some good progress so far
I have managed to source some Corsair struts, engine and box so full speed ahead now the correct sills have been sent!
