Nicely maintained car and it would have necessitated great efforts to sustain this this far.
Why have you changed the carburetor to Solex make? To maintain originality remove the Mark II emblem from the boot lid.

Somehow, the car looks better to me externally before restoration. The thin whitewalled tyres with the old hub caps look so much nicer.

Smart car nonetheless, hope you have many hours of enjoyable motoring .

An opportunity to acquire a lovely example of a Mk 2

Hi SV!
Permit me to point out these things to add to the decent restoration.

As already indicated, the SU carb and the Mark II monogram. The lock on the driver's door looks odd, as also the bezel below the dickey lock. Pls add the beedings below the headlamps. Hope the car has a pull start system.

@karlosdeville, I am using these photos as the model for my restoration. I am wondering about the missing door handle cups and the rear door handle in theses photos. Were these interiors original ?
