this is a really a very early S1, may I ask what chassis it has ?

You will get the dashboard from Classical Dash, but you will need extra, really extra patience.
He will deliver, but "sometimes". You might are better served if you ask the usual suspects (Sue Miller, Kelvedon, SJ Sportscar, Paul Matty), if they have one on stock.

1964 S1 (engine ready, awainting body paint)
1967 S3 DHC
1969 S4 FHC (worn engine)
