Car History:
eMail vom 11.Dez.2010:
I boght the car 1962 for 100 GBP from a garage near Bath, UK for . The car ran very well, I often did 100mph, very few cars could do that in those days, but the oil pressure dropped away when hot, so the main bearings were worn. I was very young & could not afford to fix that, or do any competition. But I loved the car & used it every day even through the winter [with no hood/weather protection]. KDU 490 was British Racing Green in those days
I sold D43 in 1963 or 1964, to Michael R King, who took the car to London.
