Very pretty. Does yours have a hood as well as hardtop or like mine was its hood removed by factory before selling? I bought mine back in 2000 with last hardtop available from factory, which Duncan Hamilton had trimmed out for me. I was fortunate and subsequently bought a hood, although getting it to fit and work was another matter!

Hi, Thank you
   The car came with a hood as well as the hardtop. The hood works thankfully [:)]
   The side window doesn't quite fit the hardtop correctly, so not quite weather proof at the moment.

Yeah - to get an effective seal of windows on both hood and hardtop is a bit of a challenge - get it right on one and it won't be right on the other! I didn't bother with the hardtop fit on mine cos never use it. If your problem is the glass isn't going up enough to squeeze the top seal there is an adjustable cam type stop on the gear quadrant limiting the height the glass extends. Adjusting this up shouldn't affect the sealing when using hood.

Very tidy looking car. How many miles on the clock?
   
   I see you have a blown one. If you really want to exploit its full potential I would recommend fitting the usual power adders - alloy heads, aftermarket inlet manifold, 65mm T/B, Ford Racing headers (exhaust manifolds to you and I) and maybe 1.7:1 roller rockers. The cast iron exhaust manifolds are particularly restrictive, so regardless how hard the 'charger is pushing air in it can't get out because of the puny ports. The Ford Racing headers are fabricated so able to accommodate more generous ports. The ceramic coated ones are worth the extra - retain their shiny silver appearance with discolouration.

31,000 miles
   
   How much do the changes cost roughly and what additional output would you expect?
