I brought this 140 back from USA in 2013 so that I could restore it. I have kept the original left hand drive and BW automatic gearbox but I have fitted front disc brakes and EZ power steering. Now waiting for a DVLA registration number.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
