Looks to be quite an early car in Cowpat green (Olive). And a Buick V8. Be almost tempted to keep it looking ratty and 'scare' people on the motorway :lol:
It will no doubt keep you entertained for a while whatever your plans. Look forward to seeing progress on here.

Hello Charles came across this in the history file, however I've tried calling to report the problems with my engine but the number is not recognised! :lol:

Looking at your photographs I've just noticed an interesting effect - a dark colour Mk1 in poor light hides the effect of the pointed nose cone.
I've always prefered the look of the Mk1, especially the distintive nose-cone, but on a dark car as illustrated the front appears flatter and the car rather truncated.
A pale colour however shows up better in poor light and emphasises the length and sweep of the body lines.

Just my observation :)

I would say the nosecone looks more pronounced with the car not having a front bumper fitted!
