Hi Glen
I am trying to go for historic registration which requires strict 
conformity to OEM spec.

Historic Registration allows me to run the car for a fraction of the 
standard cost for a period not exceeding 90 days in any one year.
Log books of journeys must be issued and maintained.

It allows older vehicles to be driven to shows and in club events.

The pics were taken shortly after I acquired it.
Thr PO had done some work on it ... <gloom>.
I have a set of P6 rocker covers ready to fit.

And yes, it goes like stink, even with the OEM Lucas dizzy.
