Too good for what I want I need a project, but will suit someone.

Is this already known to the club?

It's not - I'll pass on details to Tom.  It must have been a very clean barn!

Yes indeed. I wonder what the woodwork is like, nothing worse than the worm.

Lets hope it goes to an AC enthusiast.

Good Morning Gary,

As you say, a nice looking car and one which was unknown to the club.

How much of a project do you want as I have a historic basket case in the garage (L800) which I am not going to get round to? I have too many projects!!

All the best,
Tom

Hi Tom

What is L800?  I am looking for a 2 litre to restore.

My email is southee@hotmail.co.uk  (I will remove this in 24hrs)

Cheers  Gary

Sounds OK for a 'barn find'.

L800 is the 2 litre prototype, fitted with a pre-war DHC body.

Hi yes does sound ok, the vendor sent me a lot of pics but mainly as per Ebay. I hope it goes to a future member.

As regard to L800 I have spoken to Tom about it and am considering my position re the car.

So went for £9300 not bad price for what appeared to be a nice car.

Lets hope it is a car going to a new member or to an existing one.

Let us know if you bought it.
