All chrome, interior and exterior pieces have bee triple plated. New parts were used when necessary, rebuilding the engine, transmission and overdrive, and the ancillary systems were given the same treatment. An all-new cloth wiring harness was utilized along with new or rebuilt electrical components. A complete new fuel system was installed including new tank and lines, all the way up to the three newly rebuilt 1.5 SU HS4 carburetors. The exhaust has been jet-coated and fitted to a new steel exhaust system. The brake lines, master cylinder, front disc brakes and jet-coated rear brake drums are all new. New front and rear suspension, Dunlop chrome wire wheels and road speed tires. No expense was spared in this restoration with the majority of parts purchased new from England.
