ENGINE NO: TS58912ES
Chris Webb (Aylesbury UK) purchased the car from Alan Legg in 1974 (Reg. No. EBA 22). After a broken crankshaft, in or about 1980, Chris obtained the parts for the current engine, and rebuilt it. About that time, he also changed the colour from Triumph Royal Blue, to Renault Rouge Tolede (the colour when he sold it).
Chris shipped the car to Australia in 1988. The original Reg. EBA 22, was sold prior to shipping (it paid for the shipping costs) and it was then registered EBW 401A for the time it remained in UK .
Following arrival in Perth WA on 24/11/88 it was re-registered 7NO216
2005 update: Alex says: "After purchasing it from Mr R.Elliot in Perth, I drove it to the transport depot to get it to Melbourne. The car was complete and ran in a fashion however the steering wheel rim broke free of the spokes as I parked it in the depot. When the car was stripped I soon established that very little could be salvaged, so I did the motor up including new sleeves & pistons, crankshaft grind, new valves & s/s seats, new (warm) camshaft, extractors, geared startermotor etc.
