1947 'Y' Type. Partially dismantled and garaged for many years after an abandoned restoration project. Bodywork, chassis, electric and mechanical components are complete and in reasonable condition. The running gear was functional when driven in to garage (1988!). The interior parts are present. The car is not currently registered, the original log book was returned to the DVLA by a previous owner, but the re-registration process was never completed. Sadly I have finally admitted that I will never have time to restore the car to the level it deserves. Enquiries, or offers, to Andrew Wright on 0802 417702 (high Wycombe, Bucks). (3)
