This series 1 3.8 coupe has been sitting in storage for many years. It had been paint stripped which revealed some old nasty repairs and then left until we dragged it out of hibernation for restoration. The car left the factory in May 1962 and was delivered to Henley’s in London and was silver blue with red trim. We will be undertaking a total restoration of this car and incorporating some subtle improvements along the way. But there is a lot of bodywork to be done first!

The body requires complete new floors, inner and outer sills, complete boot floor, new firewall, new front frames, a new bonnet and more! Here it is set up on our alignment jig ready for dismantling.
