Of course they all had two carbs Only VS and later VAS engines have the dash 9

I owned this car in 1980 and after clearing old files have just found some documentation for the car. If the current owner is interested I would be pleased to forward them to help make the car's History File more complete. Anthony Moody (anthony_moody@hotmail.com)

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?
