Al does appreciate them :D

Lovely 59 but seems to have snow on the roof :wink: Any plans to drop it?

I have just put a Matt Keene/Ben Lewis Built and detailed motor in the Notch Running a pair of Webber 40 DCNFs.Ported, balanced etc..

I am a lucky boy having mates like them. :D

All the best, Al

The '59 is lowered at the front & stock at the rear (I prefer the old school stance!) Needs lots of work though - bonnet & decklid are poorly fitting repros, bumpers are nasty, rear lights need replacing with 'snowflake' units, gutters have been partly removed & chrome needs to be returned.

The 356 is a kit! (Martin & Walker - how I wish I had the money for a real one!) Motor in there is a 2.0 type IV with 911 cooling fan & twin 40s :wink:
