Chassis No.1189

This vehicle was owned during the 1960's by Mike Jennings and restored in 1968 by Peter Jackson.

Mike Lambert owned KKG 874 from 1971 until 2012 when it was bought by Alan Gibb of Port Lethen, Aberdeen.

According to Alan, "the vehicle is still fitted with most of the original equipment. Drum brakes all round, Lockheed rear axle and a 1991cc low port engine with an early over-drive box. The seats were recovered in vinyl and the underside was undersealed. The originally white car was re-painted in cellulose (metallic green), when it was restored but it is now a bit chipped in places. Interior trim is good, the carpets are well made but the hood needs to be replaced. The vehicle's chromework is in good order and all panel gaps are good. The front suspension could do with a rebush and firmer Koni shocks. On the road, the car drives very well on new radials and returns 35 MPG regulary on club runs."

In late 2017 the car was bought by Andrew Gooch.
