I purchased this car 10/16/01 through Donovan Motorcars in Lenox MA. The previous owner bought the car on June 15, 1988 in poor condition. Upon stripping the car, he surmised it had been in an accident, and possibly rolled. In any event the car was completely stripped and the body shell professionally restored. The car went into storage for many years and eventually the owner decided to sell. I first saw the shell in Oct., 2001 and purchased on October 16, 2001. I then had Donovan Motorcars rebuilt the motor and transmission. (I had Brian put in a Series II transmission). They then finished the car to Concours condition.

The car body was completely restored in the late 80s. I first saw the shell at Donovan's Motor Cars in Leox, MA. in 2002. I purchased the car and had Donovan's Motor Cars completely rebuid the mechanics.

If it wasn't for #885385, I would have never bought #877539! Thanks for being a good friend all these years! Our British cars help to keep us sane.Don

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?
