I purchased this car in 1980 in UK. It was crashed and in bad condition. I purchased the new frame from Arch Motors and collected all the right parts until we completed the restoration last year. It is a complete restored to as new condition. It is ready for museum or race track. In the time I purchased the car, we never had a concern about numbers, so I lost the numbers. Our concern was whether car pass scrutineers as original car , and performance on the track.
