I received a fantastic package in the post this morning from a former owner of CEA.

This particular owner was the gentleman responsible for getting the body work restoration and colour change done in the mid nineties.

A JOC member at the time he has also sent me some old magazines which make for great reading. An old Interceptor postcard and a promotional leaflet for the S-V8

I already have a lot of invoices from the mid nineties restoration and some photos, but these extra photos and a good phone call to this prior owner really has given me some great history to go with the car.

Yes Grant the guy in the picture is Peter, the owner in the mid nineties that sent CEA in for the major resto at the time.

I have been speaking to him recently on the phone, lovely chap, has given me a potted history of when he had the car, and the twists and turns of the work, which for one reason or another was carried out by three different companies over a period time, ultimately the car was never finished whilst Peter owned CEA.

Luckily the history has stayed with the car, but Peter filled me in with more details.

I have some great old school invoices / project updates from Autobody services. A great letter to tell Peter that the restoration would move up a gear because Autobody services were amalgamated with Jencraft. Autobody would now be working with Keith Anderson.

All the invoices total £10s of thousands, so big money 25 years ago was spent.

There are plenty of letters & invoices that give the impression this was a thorough restoration. I think with the car sitting in my garage 25 years later still in great shape, this was a restoration well executed.
