We do still own 3472, but we did our own little Brexit a couple of years ago when we decided to retired back to Australia.  We brought the car back with us and so it is now on ACT registration as YMC44J.  However I have hung onto the UK plates and popped them on at the 'Terribly British' car show at Queanbeyan (it's just over the border from Canberra so technically in NSW).  


A combination of work by Dave Barnet (particularly doing a large part of the work on an engine rebuild) and Colin Holley (bodywork and paint) has the car looking much more respectable and running pretty well.  Transmission rebuild was much more problematic (despite people saying how bullet-proof and simple they are), but we finally seem to have a reliable unit again.  I have also done a great deal of work on the car including refurbishing and reinstalling the interior (I reused original leather from the car where possible, but a fair bit of it is from 115/2903).


I'm enjoying not having to worry about salt on the road when I go for a drive these days!!!


Picture attached when trailering the car from Sydney to Canberra in 2017.


Cheers

The car has quite an interesting history and has been in the family since 1985. It has spent most of its time in Australia but now resides in Essex because my father and I both live in the UK these days and we had the car shipped here in Summer 2009 for a full restoration.


I will send you a more detailed description soon along with some photos (including photos of it being used to tow an enormous caravan in the early 1990s when my uncle owned it).


Thanks for adding our car to the list Steve. Actually, i forgot to mention that the car is currently undergoing a full body restoration with Colin at CH autos, so you can actually mark it with a "yellow shadow" at the moment. I'll update you with more info and photos in due course.
