What a fabulous looking car. I can only envy your skill in restoring it to this condition.
I remember walking to school up a steep hill leading out of Rickmansworth in the early sixties and a dark green E-Type roared passed all the crawling traffic. The driver was wearing a bowler hat which nicely complimented his chalk stripe suit, military tie and red carnation buttonhole.
The noise and the image of the package has remained with me ever since and I have always been a fan.
Unfortunately I can't take credit for restoring the car.
I'll take credit for discovering it, finding the right restorer and paying the bills
. I do get a lot of satisfaction from returning it to it's former glory and making sure it's been done properly.
The sadly deceased, previous long-term owner didn't have a handlebar moustache, but he was an interesting character in other ways.
