Hi Robin

Nice one, very early S1 Beta Coupe if the reg year is correct?

Yes Peter, early S1 1600 which I rallied until the shell became so frail that a suspension strut pushed a peak in the bonnet on one event. As I remember I stuffed a jumper over the strut to try and minimise the damage to the bonnet and carried on to the end!  :o
