The car has been mechanically completed within 6 weeks of receiving the shell from paint, a great achievement given the added (and often hidden) complexity of the V6 installation! We have also done a complete dry build of the interior and have modified the rear side panels to fit around the chassis stiffening. The boot has been boarded in ply, and features a hidden compartment at the front which houses the battery and the modern Sony stereo unit. The period stereo in the dash has been converted to act as a remote control for the modern head unit in the boot. After restoring the steel hood frame, we installed our premium quality Sonnenland mohair hood. With the car mechanically completed, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to give the car its first drive, with a quick blast around the estate before we start the trimming. The car drives beautifully, with lovely torque to match the glorious 24v V6 soundtrack… very much looking forward to getting the car out on the road once completed!
