An early car, with later rear lights and front spoiler.
Looks in nice condition though. I guess it's still got the vacuum pods, hence always up.
What goes together.... Must come apart.

Lots of work done looking at the photos.

Wish it had been left in the original purple but then I'm odd...

You are not alone. :wink:

Black bumpers and original wheel colour too.

Interior is FAB mind. :D

BTW, I've always liked the original prototype scale model's minimal bumpers (see any Elite development/history book).
If you look at the car returning from the sprayers, you can see just how much better the rear of an Elite could look with minimal bumpers. :(
