In the early 1980s a frame-on restoration was commissioned. During that process it is believed lap belts were added and the fender color was changed to black. At some point in the cars history a Lucas Driving lamp with a racing cover, a temperature gauge and a dry-element performance air cleaner was installed.
The car had 47,000 miles where it was brought to the 2008 Automobiles of Amelia presented by RM Auctions. It has a four-cylinder engine with twin SU carburetors and a displacement size of 1250 cc. There is a four-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel hydraulic nine-inch drum brakes. The car was offered without reserve and estimated to fetch between $20,000 - $30,000. This car was one of the last to be auctioned out of list of vehicles that numbered over 100. The high bid was lower than expected, but still a reasonable price, at $15,400 including buyer's premium.
