    Great pictures Mopar, I think this is the car that started it all off for most of us, I remember seeing driving down seven sisters road must 25, 30 years ago.
    All credit to Bry for the fantastic job his done.

    Perhaps someone who knows could put together Henry's history, a bit like this is your life

    Bry asked me to gather up what I know about the car, he sent it on to CC, they used a small amount of it in the feature, I managed to go back as far as the early '70's & its first engine swap.

    I posted a photo of it on the NSRA ages ago, it was when it was primer, had panelled windows, Transit beam, Jag rear & a Rover.

    The borrowed photos of it under a tarp are from Keith Killicks collection, part way through him welding the living daylights out of it, words cannot get across just how knackered it was when he got it, him & Terry Barrow did a fantastic job as it would almost certainly have been scrapped if Keith hadn't had bought it.
    How'd the weekend go? Well, at the moment it looks like a dolphin that's been caught in a boats propeller.

    As taken from page 1 post 6 https://www.rodsnsods.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=3993

    Un confirmed info was that for the photo shoot an axle was borrowed from a Trans am and it was never returned to the owner (Martin)

    Also it has been said that for 2 wks Henry was red down one side and yellow down tother as Stu didnt know what colour to paint him

    As i said unconfirmed
