She won Class 4 in the concours in 1991 with 84 points  and won 4th place in the Overall rejudge best car with 92 points.

I got her 18 years later and I guess a lot can happen in 18 years. The 3 years prior to me getting her she lived on the streets of London. She'd also been used as a daily runner from around 2000 to 2005.

I wouldn't say that she was at the scrap yard gate, but if you were looking at this from a point of economics you wouldn't have taken her on.  She had an MoT and was structurally sound with teh exception of a section of the O/S sill (now replaced). The mechanics / suspension / brakes / cooling etc were still in good order as she had over 10K spent on her in 1999, but she was cosmetically looking very neglected when I got her.

Each wing has been taken back to bare metal then rebuilt with new metal. She's also had a full respray with all the trim off.

I knew this Coupe back in the mid 1990's when she was still with the same owner although up for sale, it was a beautiful car and in A1 condition, I have photos but they are a bit too dark to see properly.

Hi Brian, yep you kindly sent me those pics and she does look really good in them. The under bonnet shots are particularly impressive and that's where I now need to turn my detailing attention. She was with John Crookes the Bristol Motor Bike guy back then.

The under bonnet view is different now as the original master cylinder is now replaced with a "modern" Sherpa van unit. The Dynamo has also been replaced by a modern alternator. SO a pedantic concours judge would probably knock off points for that, but it does make her better suited as a useable Classic!

Congratulations on a beautiful restoration. Some interesting methods regarding dash filler etc.
Enjoy, they are made for driving! I must use my Flavia 2000 coupe more than I do. But then I have to keep my B12 happy too!
Regards.
