Good looker!  ;)

Took delivery of my Marine Blue tank this week and that completes the set. Hopefully not too long now before I can complete the rebuild.

Rarer wire wheel model cool. Is it an early one? How long did the 400C go on for? Mine is on an "S" plate which must have been quite late for a "C" model.  I had a "C" model in 1978 on an "R" plate.  I think the earliest UK plate on one I have seen has a "P" suffix. I think there were some "D" and maybe "E" models at that "S" reg suffix
