We know it’s one of the few made in Dublin as it still has both its plates under the bonnet. It’s in a bit of
a state and the last owner had it stored in a shed since 1980. He said the owner before him had raced it at Mondello.
The stickers were still on the side and in better condition than the paintwork. I have managed to get them off and have
them saved. It is in a pretty sorry state at the moment but I have recently completely rebuilt an Austin Mini 1980 so
hopefully it should be ok. I’m in the process of trying to register it as I want to put plates on it.”
Update: the car has now been registered as shown above.
