Yes the early followers were steel Paul, but not the rockers! With regards, Matthew T.

Both cars were very straight and repairable before being lifted Paul, although the green car was in the best shape due to being stored inside! I think the green car might be slightly older than your very early car with RP 4995, or otherwise certainly very close! With regards, Matthew T.

I am sorry Paul and your car is even earlier than I had remembered and must for sure be the oldest surviving here in the UK. The platinum lhd car is definitely a scrapper Chris unfortunately and Ben and I plan to strip it in the near future. There are quite a lot of useful panels and two of my cars are in the same colour. The engine and gearbox will certainly come out and hopefully live again! With regards, Matthew T.

We are hoping (although I’m not holding up much hope myself) for someone to come forward for the green car the lifting damage isn’t too bad the main shape of the roof hasn’t been affected doors still open and close without issue

The silver car is unfortuantly scrap

There is a possibility of someone locally being able and willing to take on the green car Paul, which will not be for the faint hearted due to works required on the roof and although otherwise fairly straight it is in a state! I mentioned before that the engine wiring harness is missing and the exhaust has been replaced with non standard arrangement and two missing rear cats! We have discussed and agree a modest price and would just like to see the car saved really! With regards, Matthew T.
