    Car was at auction 3/09

    www.motorbase.com/auctionlot/by-id/1056206165/

    classiccars.brightwells.com/viewdetails.php

    Auction description:

    This particular car is one of those few survivors, a genuine right-hand drive drop-head coupe that was first registered in Cambridgeshire in March 1956 and had just one owner from 1980 to 2009. One of just 87 SE models with correct chassis stampings to prove, it benefits from an overdrive gearbox and may once have had a C-Type head (although not all SE models did). The engine currently fitted is not the original though it is a 3.4 XK unit that is correct for the period. Uprated to disc brakes all round, it also has an uprated high-torque starter motor fitted. Off the road between 1993 and 2006, the car is said to run and drive but has only done a couple of hundred miles in the last three years and may need some recommissioning before it can be pressed into more regular use. The chassis is said to be exceptionally sound, original and rot-free, but the bodywork would now benefit from some improvement. Due to have a fresh MOT before the sale (the last one expired in October 2008), this is a running restoration that should amply reward the sympathetic restoration that is now required.

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
