CMC are carrying out a full restoration, including engine and gearbox rebuild, full retrim and all mechanical items. 

The car was an attractive restoration project in 1977 when it entered storage, despite the fact that it had lived a hard life. There were splits in the front suspension turrets which had been welded and crash damage to the offside body and rear chassis which were repaired at the time. 

Besides a total restoration, the chassis needed re-alignment which was facilitated by using a mobile Globaljig body measuring and alignment system.
