Hi Steve

There have been a few hurdles. I had the car delivered to a mate who is an Aston restorer for a look-over and fettle. He has uncovered a dodgy sill repair (probably 20 years ago - so not dreadful) that needs a redo. The car had been looked-over and serviced before it left the UK and I must admit that i'm surprised that they didn't mention the sill. It has a Mallory twin-point distributor and was fitted with a new rotor, cap, leads and plugs by the Garage but they kept the old points and condenser (?!). Wouldn't start at my end. However, it did go with a clean up of the points and an Aston condenser but not very well. I have now fitted Pertronix ignition (another saga - the made-for-purpose kit didn't fit and I had to manufacture my own adapter plate) and it is now going great-guns- drives beautifully.

The sill will be redone next month, so all seems to be OK.

I presume that the Garage was having a bad day?


Russell is keen to find out about the missing year in his records. Can you help? if so email me and I will pass the information on.


The history of 2861 has a 1 year missing. It was registered as CLX345H in Aug 1969, having been delivered in May 1968. I had imagined it might have been a demonstrator or some such, but the Miss World story makes me wonder if the car had a use like that for a year and was handed back.
