A matching numbers UK car that was taken to New Zealand by its 2nd owner in 1976.  It was restored at 36,000 miles by a subsequent Kiwi owner in 1989 and passed through several owners in New Zealand before returning to the UK in 2016. 

Current owner bought it in 2017 at 43,000 miles.   It still looked great but it has gradually been refurbished mechanically and cosmetically, while retaining its originality.   It has won several awards at classic car shows. It has regular runs year-round (in dry weather) and has done several track days.  In fact the car has done more miles in the last 5 years with the current owner than in the 30 years before that!
