      Well here goes. Lets' hope I don't bore the pants off everyone.

      The car was first registered on May 1st 1976 to a heating engineer in Wolverhampton, who later transferred to it to his wife in 1981. It was then sold in 1983 and stayed in Wolverhampton. Owner #4 was in Shrewsbury and the car had a full engine rebuild during early 1988 at a cost of £1430.44. My predecessor bought the car in 1990 and brought it up to Lancashire. He did a lot of work on it culminating in a full off road restoration which took 9 years to complete between 1995-2005. In 2015 it had more engine work including re-bore,new pistons,head rebuild and new timing chains/tensioners,new hood etc. Sadly John died in late 2016 having owned the car for almost 27 years. I'm owner #6 and have made a few cosmetic changes such as moto-lita steering wheel, some engine bling and changed to the old black/silver number plates. I see myself very much as a custodian and am benefitting from all John's hard work and considerable expenditure. I've managed to put together a fairly comprehensive history thanks to old receipts and notebooks that John had kept. He was a former regional co-ordinator so the car is quite well known in Lancashire stag circles.

      The cost of an engine rebuild wasn't cheap in 1988 at £1430 but it's a hell of a lot dearer nowadays

          That looks a beast of an engine. What's the brake horse power?

            Not sure if i should answer here due to rule number 3 but its only 180bhp atm it pulls well though due to more torque.
