That looks brilliant - well done. How long has it taken you to get it up to that condition?

Very nice! This is the one that was down in Cornwall was it not? If it is, although it was far from bad then it looks like it's had a lot of work since!

Yes it’s the car from Cornwall.
After the left hand conversion was finished and vehicle inspection complete. I kept replacing parts with better or NOS parts that I have while the rain was pouring down over the winter months.
Unfortunately my two cars weren’t parked together at the show on the weekend so here is a couple in my driveway.ImageImageImageImage

I do like those narrow whitewall tyres. I did that to my '75 SDL back in the 80s, with a tin of Humbrol paint! Fortunately there was a raised line on the tyrewall I could follow, so they were concentric... I like the chrome on the saloon's 'B' pillar too.

Was your show an exclusively British car show? I could see an MG, a Triumph TR and a Triumph Mayflower.

The show was exclusive to British cars put on by the local club that I’m a part of

A factory option, according to this brochure. Wonder if it was offered in any other markets?
