    This lovely left hand drive example in metallic blue was restored in 1988/89 and has stood the test of time whilst it was in Maine USA. The paintwork is extremely good as is the blue interior and matching blue hood.

    This model has the desirable and tractable 3000 engine and is the 'Phase one' example making it a little bit rarer that other models. This is a wonderful example of these iconic British sports cars, which are a joy to drive and puts the thrill back into open top motoring both here in the UK or in Europe. Not to be missed.

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    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?
