My son sent photos of this very tidy car.
Anyone know it?

Yes - I saw that but last taxed in 1978.
I suspect a rebuild and respray and test after completion.
Photos must have been taken on way to or from test station - great weather for February :) :)

Certainly not a Sprint?

To be fair the side stripe doesn't make that claim.
A very nice looking car that's obviously been recently restored and 'updated'
