Yes, you're right about my ID!
Pennant was sold long ago- and I'm afraid I only have 1 car now, which is my 1964 Standard Herald (same one seen in my avatar!)
You're welcome to get in touch anytime though!

Any news on the current status of the car? I am really interested in seeing the final outcome.

Some updates after a gap - the car is finally painted, and looking good. While I haven't seen it in person as yet, the colour seems to have turned out exactly like I'd hoped.

Great to see the paintjob done at last! Yes, seems to be the right Powder Blue shade in my monitor atleast!
BTW, if I may point out though, the gap between the door and front wing in this pic. seems rather 'uneven', ie. wider at the top and narrowing down towards the bottom? Or something to do with the angle at which the pic. was taken?

The panels aren't finally aligned, that's all.
