Hello from Ireland

That's amazing. Still on the original engine? Not rebuilt? Brilliant!
I believe it is the original, it certainly looks like the bolts etc holding it in place etc were never touched. Mileage is probably correct, very little wear on steering wheel, pedals, switches and seats but of course I can’t be sure. Would love to track down the first owner, anyone know any of doing that from the original UK reg no etc?

Great engine which would go on for many miles yet before a rebuild. I am also interested in trying to track down the first owner of my car, but again, no idea on how to go about this.

I'm almost afraid to post after the v8 in barn fiasco, but here goes. All bought and paid for and awaiting delivery of a Red '75 2200TC Manual, coming by Transporter in a couple of days. It's a Semi project, so it needs a bit of work. I will be asking advice here, no doubt! Cheers all!

Did I miss something :hmm: ? I missed something didn't I :) ?
Nopes. Just me. I found a lovely 3500S in a barn, and at first the elderly gent seemed keen on selling it to me. I posted a few pics. Anyway he changed his mind, for "Sentimental Reasons" he's letting it rot. Despite my protestations and offers of large wads of cash. Thats all.

Thanks for accepting me, I’m just after getting my hands on a 1969 P6 3500 V8 and love it. Looking forward to doing a few jobs during the winter but for now, loving the rumble of the V8 when we are out cruising with the vintage lads
Welcome to the group which is a great place for banter and of course technical help. Best place to be in.

What fiasco? Would you please explain as I am very curious now...
Hello Dave. In summary, Lying in a barn about 10 minutes away, is a White 3500S, 50,000 miles on the clock, Green Glass, Huntsman Brown vinyl roof. I thought I had secured it, but the elderly owner :mad: changed his mind at the last moment. I had already posted some pics on Page 1 of this thread, which I then had to delete. Thats all.
Sorry for confusion.

And, I have just been contacted by the Transporters, my 2200TC will be here on Tuesday.:cool:

Just giving it an initial clean with mould and mildew remover, disinfectant, fabric cleaner, vacuum, WD40, liquid soap, glass cleaner, vinegar.
Time for a cup of tea.

Ooh.. more pictures please..
Hi Chris, I would if I had the owner's permission. and I'm not sure of forum protocol in such matters. I picked the least likely to offend. Zero rust. Looks like all original panels, you couldn't get a fag paper between them. One of the early reds,, 1969. Ticks over like a clock apparently.
