A friend is doing a 1600 and then has 2 coupes to do so thought he would likely never get to this one.Sold it to me.No fenders but has doors ,bonnet,and boot lid as well as most other bits ,Not too rusty but will need sills and rockers for sure.Will post more pics tomorrow.Terry

Hi Terry,

congrats on this new project smileys with beer

With your Body# the VIN should be HDK43/475?? Build around February/March 1958.

Hope this helps to find out the correct VIN.

Cheers

Terry,

your number 47335 already exists and has Body# 57994.

I'm quite sure your VIN should be 4755? because 47500 has Body# 58152.

HI Gary, this car is known since new by the guy I got it from.Has been off the road since the 60's so no rust to speak of having only done 25 K miles.The fenders were sold off long ago and drive train is gone,It is a very solid car and new fenders are available as well as engines ,I have a tranny .The fact that the numbers are still readable on the cross member proves that it was stored under cover all those years.Terry

Terry,

I do fully agree with your VIN 47535 hot smiley


The engine # should be 15GB-U-H-37970 or 10+- next to it.
