Presumably after an accident, the car was converted by Christopher Neil into a Sprint in the late 1970's using a kit that the garage sold at the time. See photos. The car spent some time in the Isle of Man before returning to the mainland. It was bought for me as a retirement gift by my old employers from Paul Matty. Ive owned the car since 2006.
