"Oskar" (for it is he) was owned by an elderly Club member who sadly suffered a stroke a little while ago. His letter will appear in our September magazine. The seller's rather stretching a point by claiming it may be the earliest Mk 1 on the road (mine was built 14th October 1958 and is still my daily driver...)

Still, I know that Oskar's previous owner did indeed treat him to a total rebuild, although when speaking to him on the phone I did try to dissuade him from putting on a non-standard Mk 1 colour during the rebuild. He was hoping to recreate Ann Moss and Anne Wisdom's 1959 Monte Carlo route but unfortunately his health deteriorated before he could live the dream.
