Work has been slow on the car as more parts are sourced and details are sorted, meanwhile here are couple of pictures of the car as of today.

Looks gorgeous. I know this is an act of patience to source the parts and get it right, but I am really looking forward to seeing a video of this car driving around on the road.....

This just appeared in The Plymouth Bulletin, many thanks to Dan Morton from the Plymouth owners club and KPS for introducing me to Dan and sharing this with me.

Work on the car is going on full pace now, luckily an original rear glass along with an odd lot of spare parts were found in Jharkhand.

The rear glass has been fitted now, though its not in the best of the condition.

A few pictures of the Plymouth from the rally day, will be posting pictures of interiors in a day or two. The car was adjudged the best restored car in classic category.

Congratulations! Great effort and patience in the restoration.

In the last picture I can see the unrestored car has a different rear windscreen shape than the restored one. Was that intentional?

Oops now I remember the unrestored one had an Ambassador windscreen shoe horned on to it.

Lovely car, tastefully restored.

I do hope the owner uses her as she was meant to be in 1959.

The entire team that worked so hard deserve praise.
