Back to the subject of value, $20k feels very light as you put it, given the race history. Having said that the parts bill is going to add up very fast...
Here's a further idea though, you could make a very interesting NHRA classic street class dragster...Particularly if the drag racing history is documented.
...I shall never be forgiven for mentioning drag racing on the AC forum!
I think there would be a good case for restoring to it’s Drag Race configuration, if that is where the most historically significant part of BEX310’s past lies, but I suspect although the restoration cost would be significantly higher, the Lucky Casner connection may be of greater ‘interest’.
Either way, I look forward to BEX 310’s life & history continuing. 👍🏻

Numbers have been found on the latches, but I'm not sure where to look for the chassis VIN. Any help would be welcome.

R/H engine mount usually shows the VIN.

This Ace Bristol BEX310 has lost its Bristol engine and replaced with V8,  Engine mounts  usually removed and rebuilt to accommodate the V8
Vin Number BEX310 should be punched on door hinges, boot (Trunk) and Bonnet hinges,  Often  hand written on reverse side of Dashboard  and sometimes underside of Aluminium seat base.   ;)

There is no doubt that we have located BEX 310, and numbers have been found on the doors and trunk/hood hinge areas. But as expected, it would appear that the R.H. engine mount is missing. I have photos, but they are coming in with too large a format to post. Now what?

The program "tinypic" resizes pictures.

You could ‘screenshot’ them and crop smaller. 👍🏻

Ned, upload the image files to your Flickr account. Flickr allows you to share/hyperlink the photos at different resolutions/sizes.
