I'm not much of a facebooker, but thought this might be of interest...

Having just joined the forum I thought I would try out my membership by posting a picture of this H120 in it's new home. I purchased it from Paul back in the autumn of 2019 and it finally got here (Swansea) in September 2020. Instead of being in Paul's queue it's now in my queue behind the Series 111A and the Triumph Mk.1 2.5PI estate. We haven't done much with the car yet other than clean out the fuel system, change the plugs / points and it is running OK to move around the drive but we suspect the head gasket needs doing as it gets a bit hot if run for long!

Now have reg doc in my name, 1 previous owner . for sale £4500.
as said above will need welding to rear end/spring hangers/valance and probably sills as they have been done in the past.Rear edge of front wings depending how fussy, rear arches fluffy, front of front wings are very good as they go, interior is good and original, glen mason has seen the car in person. You may think it pricey but its yellow and thats how much to make me part with it! or it will get in the queue for work as and when!!!!! (2021?)i can do the work for a buyer , call or email for more details, i know you will want to ask "how much to fix it?" but thats subjective , 1000-3000 depending on how much you want done and to what stage/standard, to many variables, if you are interested come and have a look rgds Paul

yes it did have a towbar, rear valance is tatty, end of chassis rails are tatty and you can see the outline of where a bracket was attatched, ill post updates as and when theres something to update! come over next time your near you can see the collection, its grown a bit since you were last here!

Probably had a towbar at some stage. This was the standard mod on Rapiers so you could see the plate.

Great looking car. This would be a beauty when restored. Whats the colour, Sundance yellow same as the avenger tigers?

i managed to spend a bit of time this week (ten mins!!!) put a ittle diesel down plug holes, oil is clean, next day tried the pulley and the engine turns over freely so good new on that, ill try to get the paperwork trail started.
yes numberplate must have been one of those ideas that seemed good at the time!

You could have an impressive collection if parts were easy to come by (like MGB)!!

God knows why someone thought it was a good idea to stick the rear numberplate on the bootlid

dont know jason, need glens help getting a v5 as the reg isnt on dvla database, all depends on that really!
