I have sent the seller as much advice and info as you can cram on ebay`s post a question forms. He was listing it as Climax engined (which is what it was previously sold as!)He now has it as Triumph engined, i have asked for the engine number and he now has pictures of the block casting! This car has been heavily modified, it has Herald or Spitfire front suspension turrets (look at his pictures) and the bualkhead under the bonnet looks like Triumph again, look at the pedal mounting and various bracketry etc. Also it looks like it has an independaent rear end judging by the rear wheel angle yet it has a mark 1 bonnet. Tunnel cover also looks like Triumph, could it be a very late car which has had a mk1 bonnet fitted? I wonder if the chassis is still Fairthorpe or a modded Triumph one, chap seems keen to help with info but seems to have little or no mechanical knowledge, i think he probably bought it on a whim and has now realised he is going to struggle. Hopefully someone will give it a new lease of life........Martin
