...but we have had such fun bowling around in our B12 this year, particularly when the family were here when we were 6 up with the children in the back singing and waving to locals that I couldn't resist this 1952 B21S. The B12 is such a capable car whether going up and down steep hills 6 up or on the autostrada at 120kph. Quite remarkable really for a 65 year old car and so quiet with the windows closed.

It needs a total restoration both bodily and mechanically so that will keep me quiet for a few months! The good news is that it is virtually 100% complete.
I have a spare rebuilt 2.5l B20 engine which will fit and I also have a rebuilt B12 transaxle and a set of S4 B20 front brakes so I may reassemble using those for a sort of 'Q car' even though everything is there to rebuild as standard.
More photos to follow when it arrives.

Terrific Chris, a worthy cause, but did you actually say that?

Should keep you busy!

More than a Q-car could even be your rat rod Smiley

Out of interest, with it being nearly 100pct complete, are there particular bits that are often missing and difficult to find or "just" having everything that belongs still happily rubbing along together?
