Will do
Got my work cut out but will be worth it
Alz8026 is complete and almost all original not messed with
LDA97W on the other hand needs some original parts sourcing, one of the previous owners has removed the original front seats and fitted some awful buckets, need a pair of front seats in pinstripe if anyone has any

I've corrected the list where possible to read LDA97W instead of the incorrect LDA79W, my original error :oops:

KRU670W for sale doesn't appear to have many obvious Le Mans features for the price!

Grahams old car looks a better bet.

To Be honest, for the money, you'd be better taking a trip over to Ireland to re-patriate Stan's old car

Not mine, its in Jamie's hands in South Wales, having been on show at Manchester this weekend. This one doesn't look bad, but some of the Le Mans graphics on the nose are wrong.Its original reg was only 2 away from my old car, probably another car from Roger Clark

I've recently picked one up - a magazine cover car in 2003 no less :lol: :lol:

It's an unfinished restoration project - with almost all the parts with it , some refurbished / replated , some not.

It arrived on a trolley , without the rear suspension fitted , and covered in several years worth of dust and muck from storage.


I've got it back on it's wheels now , and given it a good clean and polish. The car has been repainted to a reasonable , but not concours standard , including the engine bay and underside , and there is zero rot or signs of repair , so in due course , I'll start bolting more bits back on :smile:
Be interested to hear if anyone knows anything about it

Mark
