This car is visually beautiful, but I wonder how it can claim to have been restored "to the highest Austin-Healey Gold Concours standards" when it has a Phase 2 VIN (and a non-factory issue VIN plate), the front and rear shroud light configuration and exterior door handles of a Phase 1 car, and an engine serial plate that also looks suspiciously like a replacement? Not sayin' it isn't really 27475, but I would need some more evidence to be convinced.

Got more evidence and I'm convinced. This car was originally a BJ7, but has been restored to the highest BJ8 Austin-Healey Gold Concours standards with reproduction identity plates.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
