Hope you enjoy this - felt like Christmas Day seeing my Inka Orange in paint shop - 325 RHD began life in December 72- brought by wealthy japanese businessman in uk - exported back to japan in 76 - raced in japan for few years and then sat idle in body shop for long time - brought back to uk 2016 - I got it it running thanks to Ian Smith GRL engineering. After one year running car decided on full resto by Paul Baker - in my opinion one of the best. This is ~1800hrs + resto already but needs to be done right - I’m a petroleum engineer so like details. Car probably finished ~ April 2020. It’s all matching numbers low ownership never been restored before and only done 30k miles.

She’s gorgeous. Do you know if the front valance is original? If it is it documents that the valance with the shorter outside vents were incorporated earlier than mid year 73 in anticipation of the US 74 big bumper coupes.

I’m still leaning towards earlier but I can’t figure out the pattern or trend.

Love how you roll! I love seeing a CS in shell form, what a timeless design. I will be equally excited seeing your finished car too!
