Before and After. It can be done!

Post by Mike01 » Fri Jul 28, 2017 4:09 pm

Two photographs of my 1927 narrow track Clifton.
In a wood near Swindon. and then many years later, restored.
Poor old MR was used, without tyres around fields and woods, a bit like banger racing, until rescued.
The results of the restoration you can see. Its hard work but when you get there its very satisfying.

My 27 12/4 Special. Don't know much about this bodystyle, apparently very few survive. Before and after a near two decade long restoration of sorts. I know the car isn't correct in all aspects but this it what i could manage with very limited resources and parts available in India. The whitewall tyres are hideous in my opinion but tyres are a restricted item to import and these are the only 21in tyres that were available in the correct width at the time. My car was also featured on a stamp released by India Post.

Well done! Not many of us (if any) have our cars featured on a postage stamp.She looks lovely especially with the spot light and warning bell on the nearside running board.Have you found another one to restore?

Thanks. I already have several project cars, which will probably take up the rest of my life 🤣
