Notes: I was told that the car had been used by Paramount Studios or Touchstone - not sure if this was true but if anyone is into films or TV series (such as Heartbeat etc) that use old cars can you remember this one ??
Fate: Bought via e-bay 1st April 2006 - the car has previously been restored to a good standard - I would say about 10 years ago.

Would like to know more about the history of this vehicle and see if anyone has any restoration / service history etc as the new V5c document gives very limited info

The car had been bought on e-bay in the November by previous owner to transfer the number plate - so sadly lost original reg. - still have old plates for history
