“Tiny Dancer”
I purchased the car in 1981 while stationed at RAF Bentwaters, Suffolk, England. To many mods to list here. Most important mod would be the original Derrington head installed since 1984. Car is currently undergoing a complete nut & bolt rebuild.

Are you sure it is a Derrington head. I am familiar with Downton Engineering and they made some terrific modifications to heads. I had one on my MGB that was stolen when I was in the UK in 1976.InstLizard

Love the 6-spoke alloys...haven't seen that design before...think about adding a B-GT or a GT-6 to the stable.

Thank you Bryson! They were given to me by a friend when I was was in the UK back in the 80s. I actually sold them last year... I decided to go with ROTA RB 15x6 Wheels & Dunlop Direzza 205/55/SR15 88V Tires for my latest build.
