Many thanks to Christy for sending in this e-mail:
I bought one of these cars in 1968 for £95.00.It was my first car,and was first registered in Westmeath in July 1960. The registration was ALI-747.
I remember buying a set of Dunlop C41 cross-ply tyres from John Brown,(RIP)who had a filling station in Kilcock. I drove this car for around 4 years, in that time doing lots of starter and engine repairs.
I also put a lot of miles on in that time.My late brother and Father drove it till 1981 when my Dad passed away.
I still have this car which is parked in a shed. I have the best of intentions of having it restored but just never got round to it.
(Usual story)Its only when I see one thats been so well minded that I regret not having it done years ago.
These cars seem to be very rare now,especially at Vintage shows,you would rarely see one on show.Your car is a credit to you.
