    Excellent, I had a '63 one with suicide doors. Had a lot of fun with it.

    Hi Nigel,

    Is the car in the midlands by any chance? I'm sure I saw it on a visit to a well known specialist a few months back.....

    Please keep the pics coming. I was looking for one of these a few months back and had to put it on hold as we had to get a new DD instead
    I will definitely be picking one up soon.......if there was ever a car that makes you smile, this is it!
