The owner was adamant that it had come that way from the factory. Whether it did or not, that's my favourite body shape combination.

thanks all. It turns out that my cross reference data sheet was not. I have counted that car as on the road so the list this year is now 100 cars updated.

I was informed last night that the Bonham auction car [115/3335] that they have listed as VEA999G was in fact VEA666G; which was the registration number shown in their photos; so it is not always me.

Never give up on a lead.

today Stoo advise me of the oldest likely survivor on the list. 115/2525 is believed to be in Victoria Australia and he believes the new owner has had it for about 3 years. This car had not been heard of since 1988. I have listed it as a 'restoration' until firm confirmation.

Also good news 117/3148 is back on the road after a rear shunt at the beginning of the year - well done Christian. photos added to Christian's Album

Interesting start to the morning.

Thanks to Neil one car found as scrap in a VLOG ( I am finally getting down/ hang of the language of the yooff ) There is a link on the website and the car is 'found' at about 14 mins into the 30 minute Youtube. Also a previous owner of a car added photos to one of the FaceBook pages which I have added to the album for that car and sent to the current owner. And the £100K car for sale is identified as 115/2698 - again thanks to those who were more alert than me.

I’ve met Joel a few times at shows.

His car was Car of the Month March 2014.

Has owned 30 MAR since he was 18

Lifetime car dealer & multiple classic owner.

He took the photos as he used to see it locally in the early 1980’s.

You’ll find him on FBook

In reviewing the surviving cars I noted that on Chassis No 117/2595 I noted that there is a photograph of an identification plate showing 542/17B
I believe that this relates to Chassis No 117/2590??

Kind regards
