A LOT of work.

push a man out of an airplane and he'll fly for the rest of his life.

It was a running car that looked pretty good. But, as they say, beauty is only skin deep ...

Restoration is still ongoing ... getting closer to the road. Maybe this summer. Never give up; never surrender.!

1st photo as I found it at a Beaulieu Autojumble (largest UK autojumble held in the South of England). Drove it for a few years before starting a proper rebuild.

When I first saw that picture of the front of your car I wondered how you were going to fix it. You have done wonders with it. It is like that old TV show called bring um back alive. Your pictures and explanations have helped a lot of people along the way. I hope to see it up and close in Richmond.

First pic is of the PO in the late '80's of the fully restored A that was given as a wedding gift from groom to bride. She was never allowed to drive the car...

2nd pic is car as purchased in 2015. All there but very tired.
3rd pic me with PO @ purchase in 2015 (No, she's not Stevie Nicks....)

Last pic is after bringing the 30 year old paint back to life in 2015.
