Nice looking daily driver ? I hace a triple black LE also. Do not understand that LE designation. I learned cars were built well into 1980 without LE label. But what the hey, driving it is the best therapy I can have

Thanks for the comment Louis. The LE is simply short for Limited Edition. My ID plate lists my build date as Aug 1980 which is pretty close to the last car build in Oct 1980. I have the mechanicals pretty well sorted, so, my next task is to have the car repainted. I am thinking of going with the Bronze Metallic which was the factory color for UK and Europe delivered LE cars.
