I can check out the details of the R3.413 car. Very unusual. We could
then prepare a full Heritage Certificate for you.
Yes, this car has the round dial dash and an indicated 90,458 miles on the odometer.
The instrumentation on the later Imps was a lot more modern than those of the early ones.

Records show me that the paint is named Loch Blue, code #78.
The resulting restored car may well look like this.
And so is our front disc brake kit set up! assembled with the help of a producer in England, they

At the same time the steering rack, brakes, gear shift and hand brake will all be removed for inspection and service.
Saturday 2nd November 2013, the car arrives here this morning, work will start next week, strip the shell, turn it over on our purpose made jig and prepare the underside of the car first.
Will this shell become a road car, we could even make it into another race or sprint car?

Now there's a thought!
Its here right now:
