This is Derek Chapman's early Interceptor, which Derek has restored and then driven down to Switzerland and up to Holland.

This is the car now, pictured in Switzerland a couple of weeks ago:

This is the car when bought, doesn't look too bad does it? But look at the later photos of the chassis tubes etc

Fantastic, Inspirational story and images. Really makes me want to get on with my restoration. Just got to finish all the other jobs first!
Well done and i hope that early car travels many more enjoyable miles.
