@Confused1 … a bookend?

I have seen this car quite a few times and assisted in getting it running, after a layup, and assisted with valve adjustment. Once all the ignition, fuel, carbs were fiddled, it started right up, no odd noises. I know Maddy…so no scam here, it is a legitimate sale. It is far better that a “project” car, as some minor do it yourself work will create a very nice driver car, that could even be presentable at local shows. Some of that work is a routine check of all mechanicals, it has fresh fluids, a final tune, and it needs some brake work–unknown, but not leaking. The wire wheels are original 54 spoke, the spares have original inside markings. Of course it will need tires for driving…but the old ones on it, all hold pressure. It may be that this car, originally British Racing Green, was special ordered with the wire wheels. The small dents are very minor…likely a “dent puller” would work on most. I think the current black paint could be brought to a good shine by one that knows how. As you can see the wood dash is in remarkable condition. And that is a big thing. Fuel tank re done, and radiator by the best–Maine Radiator. Those are two costly and time consuming PIA tasks that are done.
Hope someone re-homes this car.

This is an image of the oil pressure gauge as the engine is running. It has good pressure.
