History
I bought this as a non-runner in 2015 after it had stood for at least 5 years at a garage, the mechanics were unable to get it to run, for £900! Idiot! 6 months later and she was on the road and is a rolling project, which is another way of saying that she's always needing some work!
In 2017 she took my better half and I round the North Coast 500, never missing a beat and actually running better as we went on, proving that older vehicles benefit actually being used rather than mothballing them.
She's starting to look a bit tatty, so once I sort the last of the mechanicals out I'll need to think about the cosmetics...

Modifications

Drivetrain
3 litre, straight 6, 190 HP, non-cat... not a busso, but a thing of loveliness nontheless.
Vacuum hoses, ignition coil, HT leads, distributor cap and rotor arm, thermostat and a couple of sensors (there aren't many of those!) needed to be replaced. Injectors are next on the list...
Interior
Poverty spec cloth interior! *cough* I mean rare cloth interior!
I actually prefer this to leather...
Suspension
rebuilt by me on my driveway, just a lovely thing to waft about in
