....where, using a mix of original and exact replica parts, the car was returned to its authentic delivery specification.

4935 was a T35B, no C! But who cares - more important of course is the correct shade of the color..... :?

The car in the article is 4940 in the register / wiki.
All of the previous U.S. restoration which a lot of people did not like was reversed in a very sympathetic way ie de chrome etc......

I don't know what # it is but on the register wiki it is listed as 4940. it looks much better now with proper wheels rather than when it came from the U.S. With the beaded edge 710x90's and small rad. It lived for a year next to my car whilst being restored really nice car
