Acquired November 08 and proceeded to spend 8 months before even starting.

Since then, rebuilt engine, modern filters, modern pistons, refaced tappets and reground camshaft. Rewired chassis, rebuilt generator and starter.
As well all normal maintenance is performed to daily driver standards as the car is driven quite often – 2000 miles last year, nearly 1000 miles this year so far. Now showing 29,700 miles.
Car is all-original save front interior and mechanical maintenance. Original paint except as noted in George Hamilton’s autobiography.
