Welcome! That will be a cool car to cruise around London. My wife worked there for a while when she worked for EDS and I was able to visit once. What a great city. So much history and the best pubs on the planet. We went to Windsor too, which was also interesting. They did make right hand drives, I believe. It would be nice to convert to right hand drive.

Welcome from North Carolina! Absolutely love the UK. Spent 5 years there at RAF Lakenheath, with many trips to London. Crazy part is that I'm from Long Beach, CA. Enjoy the build and the site.

Stay tuned and you'll find the '62 guys. A lot of the '62-'64 body parts interchange well with your car, and mechanical stuff up to '67. You found the right site.

Welcome to the site..

Looks like you have 8” wide rally’s out back. That doesn’t usually happen without some kind of axle work narrowed or a replacement of some kind. Do tell..?

The previous owner had the wrong size wheels..... not much rubber left on the sidewalk!! I have had to put 7’s back on with 225/65 tyres...
