Previously owned by Bob Alley. Bob writes about the car:
Don purchased it in early 70s from a dealer in England. The car was supposed to be in very good condition (as described in an invoice from seller). That was not the case as Don had to to buy a new tub and pretty much restored the whole car. Lots of new parts. He was living in Pennsylvania at the time and moved to Walnut Creek and put the car on blocks (late 70s as I recall) and never really drove it . The car had about 3600 miles on it since restoration. All the gauges were also rebuilt. Unfortunately when I bought the car I didn’t really take a good look at it and found that most of the nuts/bolts were replaced with SAE (fortunately he kept all the originals). The wiring harness was a cheap PVC replacement but everything worked including the added turn signals. Paint was in very good condition and came with 2 quarts of lacquer paint (Clipper Blue). The interior is blue vinyl with blue carpet (replaced with proper black by me that came with car). Not my cup of tea but the seat covers are in excellent condition. A complete biscuit interior came with the car. Missing a gas cap (I provided a newly chromed replacement), slow running cable, tunnel cover (replaced by me with new one from Doug) and the side lights don’t have the Lucas emblem. I replaced about 90% of the nuts/bolts with plated BSF all the suspension rubber and rear springs (came with the car). Chrome in very nice condition.
