    420G Dutch restoration project

    Hi my name is Kees living with my wife Masha and the lovely Welsh Springer Spaniel in The Netherlands.
    Bought the car in august 1983, could drive it for a year but failed the MoD (inspection). After all very glad it failed, checking the rear suspension later found out all four rubbers were broken....with 190 Km/h.
    Stored the car until 2010, and start the restoring project.
    Will try to post some pictures.
    Any comments are very welcome, not many people wants to start such a project. Lot of them are scrapped, engines wanted for E-Types etc.
    Car is original imported in The Netherlands, LHD, all numbers match, dark blue with beige interior.
    Auto gearbox and engine are already overhauled.

    Pictures coming up later

    So clean you could eat off of it. When the second video got to the dashboard wood my heart skipped a beat. Very excited to see the finished product.
