It's gone to a good home. Chater-Lea is a surname which probably means something to some of you. He's already been in contact with the Spares Secretary. He's planning a total restoration.
You should see his MG. This will give you some idea what he is going to do the 18/85.
I hate to see it go, but the steering wheel is on the wrong side for Italy. I have twins hanging out of the windows telling me when I can overtake. If they did this any longer, one of them is going to get brained.
Given the way Italians drive, I'm not (as I previously suggested) going to go for a LHD 1800. I'm going to go for a modern car, at least until I am used to Italian driving.
Look on the bright side. This crab is going to get totally restored.
I really want to see a Crab in Italy.
Oh, the restoration includes the BW35. He has the manual. It's a pretty unique implementation of the BW35.
Happy motoring! I'm going really to miss the Crab!
Last Edit: Jul 7, 2016 8:39:23 GMT by midnightblue: BW35. Get it right, it's really good!
Good luck with the Italian adventure. A Landcrab out there would be a real headturner no doubt. If I were living there I would be off searching for a twin cam Fiat 131 or 132 to scratch a long time itch of mine which is just about impossible to do here in the UK.
