#1 New Member - Series 1.5 FHC 1968

Post by Jonny XKE » Wed Aug 01, 2018 2:23 pm

New member and had my series 1.5 for just under a year. It had a full nut and bolt restoration by previous owner over a 4 year period. Early on in its life it had the bonnet replaced to series 1. Its a US import originally registered in NY but spending most of its life in California. Almost all the panels are original if you include the bonnet. There are some upgrades to it such as the brakes, suspension and ignition etc. Photo below was taken yesterday.
