"A friend of mine puchased this car around 1966/67 from a garage on the Bromford Lane in Birmingham for very little money. He only had it for a few weeks when on a winters night on the way to a club film evening at Mallory Park, he rolled it and I never saw it again"! -- Regards Steve
Obviously the car still survives today.
