This car featured in an article in the British "Classic Cars" magazine of May 1998 and there are history details and also information on the rebuild of the car on behalf of the then owner Peter Brennan. He bought the car in 1994 from Charles Saunders who had kept the car locked away for 25 years. When purchased the colour of the car was white. Extensive replacement of body and mechanicals were needed. The engine was enlarged to 3.8 by Guy Broad and also disc brakes fitted and a D type cylinder head. Interior trim was re-done by Suffolk and Turley. Also much work was carried out by Brown and Gammons.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
