Status: Active 2009. UK.

"CF6 has lived in the northeast corner of Hampshire since I bought it in 2002. It is a manual convertible in dark blue with black trim, on 6 1/2" Minilite wheels and has a 3.071 (43/14) axle. According to the history file which came with the car, the engine was replaced in 1969 after overheating and seizing (there's a surprise!). The Ford part number cast in the iron cylinder heads and the Ford engine tag suggest this replacement is 428CJ spec - is this normal or did they just happen to have a Cobra Jet spec engine at Thames Ditton at the time?

Non standard items include: Edelbrock water pump, Performer RPM heads and Performer 390 inlet manifold, fabricated exhaust manifolds/headers, 2 off Kenlowe 8" engine bay extraction fans, larger coolant expansion tank, heater removed (summer motoring only) but separate screen demist system, inertia reel seat belts, battery isolator in place of fuel filler, aluminium fuel tank with integral filler - capacity 20.25 gallons imperial ( 24.3 US gallons), revised boot lid gas strut geometry so lid is self supporting and stays open in a wind, Spax dampers and stiffer coil springs all round.

CF6 was first registered ULN 461F on 27 May 1968 to the first owner in London. Second owner in Sussex 1987 to 2000. Third owner in Berkshire 2000 to 2002. Indicated mileage is 42,000 but I reckon true mileage is more like 60,000. In 1995 it had a fortunate(!) spin which damaged all 4 corners and an insurance company paid out ?35K, which was enough to cover a complete body rebuild which got rid of most of the corrosion."
