1970 DS21H Restoration

1970 DS21H. Although this is a 1970 model it wasn't registered until June 1972 so is on a K plate. The last tax disc showed that it was used up until 1984 when it was taken off the road and had the water pump removed but not replaced. We are restoring this car for a customer over the next year; first step is to remove the engine & gearbox.

27/10/11 Engine now rebuilt using new Pistons & Liners, reconditioned Oil Pump, reground Crankshaft, reprofiled Camshaft, overhauled Cylinder Head & new Rocker Gear.

June 2012: Chassis restoration undertaken.

July 2012: Replacement body panels restored. We had to throw away all of the original panels except the roof...

Dec 2012: Just returned from our workshop in Poland after metal & paintwork completed. New interior of brown leather and gold carpets also fitted.

Spring 2013: Engine & Gearbox re-fitted, Tax & Mot then back on the road after 29 years.
