Believe it or not, this list is not extensive and many other receipts come with the car totalling over £35,000! It really is that good!

It was fully restored in 2009/10 by someone, however then Justin got his hands on it in 2006 and nut and bolt restored it to the perfect standard you see today, fully documented, and one of the best in the UK currently. It is a testament to Justin who spent over 5 years re-building this car and making it his obsession to get this right!
