History
Originally sold to an owner in Detroit who lived in the "down river" area where it was mainly used in Lake St. Clair. It became very rusty and was restored by another owner on the northeast side of Detroit. I purchased it from him in 2001. It is now under restoration as the first one was not so good.

Audio
1147 cc Triumph engine. I have added Throttle Body Fuel Injection to replaced the original carburetor. Runs like a new vehicle - no more choke, instant starts, and no vapor lock with the return fuel system. Just rebuilt the transmission with all new bearings.
Suspension
Stock with newer Bilstein coil overs.
Wheel and Tire
Wide whitewall radials replacing the Vredestein bias plys that cracked years ago.
