Looks like a nice restoration, although did not get to see as much of the engine or boot space to see how they were finished off, but nice colour combination and those Porsche seats don't look out of place either.

Looks like quite an early car, the price is between £21000 and £26000, so not too bad considering UK prices

I think it may have had a BDA / BDG of some sort in it at some stage of its life

That looks lovely, and someone else didn't like Carnival Red either! I'm pleased I've decided on Cirrus White too.

But early Plus 2's don't look right with gas burner wheels, should be on steels. The interior whilst tasteful is not to my liking.

Does anyone know who did the interior retrim?
The seats do not appear to be Lotus. Does anyone have insight into their origin?
