    I agree, it will be very interesting to see what it makes, to confirm or otherwise if 108 was on trend from 129 or an outlier. I’d suppose the reserve would be ?110-120k?

    Withdrawn from the auction for aparent want of some parts to complete the works, but still available for sale by private treaty

    Re-entered at Brightwell’s on 24th September, and it looks impressive and a credit to the current owner. Minor niggle, wheel embellishers missing, aside from that the Dubonnet looks great.

    I note, not showing up on the catalogue yet, give it a day or two..

    The car is now appearing on the auction web-site with a large number of recent pictures. Richard looks to have really brought this car back up to an excellent standard, and a lot of work has been done


    I am pleased that he has simply had the interior restored and kept the original ivory-white finish and the car is still on its correct Solex carbs.

    The car unusually with heavily restored and re-chromed original bumpers; makes a change from stainless steel

    Could never work out why the owner didn’t sort out local storage for the car in London, so he could enjoy it more ?

    I hope to see the car in person and take more pictures for myself and Gilbert.
