Good to see you guys there regularising the Sunday drives! 'wish we could do the same here. Roads in Hyd. nowadays seem as blocked even on Sundays!
BTW, 'wonder why the Herald's RHS bonnet catch seems to stay open all the while; was it not shut properly or is it a bonnet alignment issue that prevents the catch from staying shut while the car moves..? Whatever it is, 'hope the owner is able to get it sorted out. A bit dangerous otherwise.

Hi, I think if you really can stick to getting up early you can get as many free roads

Gather a few and have a blast

Cheers

What a lovely car, thanks for posting! Would you happen to know if this car retains it's original transmission?

I believe the transmission failed on all the cars right from new, there is no way it can run on that 'hydro-kinematic' (?) unit. A 3 speed borg warner unit was fitted back in the day. It does retain its original Meadows engine though, most other survivors plonk in Jaguar running gear.

I wonder if any of the few made still have their original gearbox, probaby not.

Actually Karl, that is not quite correct. These transmissions were troublesome but properly maintained worked !

In India , lack of knowledge and parts caused the famous Mr Sethna to replace the gearbox. I was under the impression that a Jaguar automatic transmission was fitted by him, maybe I am wrong, it's been many years ..

Invicta cars still do run on the original transmissions
