    Dear All,
    Can anybody help with the history of our 16/80 LJ8429?
    Type: SWS-ST24
    Eng no. 2215
    Car no. S10466
    Timing chest mark: S296 (there is what looks like a faint heart shape below this number).

    LJ8429 was first registered in Bournmouth on the 06/10/33.

    There is a mention of a Brian Thesby (or Thersby) of Preston 05/12/73 and he may have been a previous owner.

    The previous owner to me was a Peter G Towers (deceased) who bought LJ8429 at an auction at Alexandra Palace on the 08/10/75.

    LJ8429 was re-bodied as a tourer in 1977 by Cookes of Birmingham.

    I bought LJ8429 at a Brightwells auction in October 2008.

    This is the only history I have of our car and the only pictures I have are of it as a tourer.

    Please if anybody knows anything about our car or has any old archive pictures I would very much like go know.

    Incidentally Peter Towers also owned a M45 saloon which he sold to Herb Schofield in 1982 and this car was AEL 30.

    Thanks for reading

    Best regards
    Chris (H81)
