Current Owners Comments (as at Mar 2014)

I am not sure if Richard Calver has sent the details of my car to you – which Richard reckons is the First  West Bromwich built vehicle.


I am re doing the engine and transmission – mainly to fix an oil leak and secondly as a precautionary measure .


I feel the car justifies the effort and expense.

Now to get started (once the Lotus Esprit engine is fitted).

I live in Pretoria South Africa ,an inland city with fairly low rainfall (and I have  never seen snow ) so the car is rust free i.e. all the sills and box sections are devoid of rust.

I would like to find out when the car was exported from the U.K to South Africa –probably in the 1970’s.
