I think the superb photograph just shows off the beauty of these fine castings. I have always found them to be very accurate and they pay attention to the details.

The flash off the Chrome on the Healey makes for a spectacular effect. Nice camera work

My friend had one of these (real one) when I had my mk2 Zodiac,we have some great pics somewhere. See if I can find them. We spent a weekend fitting it with an over-bored Holbay engine complete with a pair of 45 Dellorto's and off-road cam...Nice.

Thats a beauty by the way.

My father bought his Sunbeam 1300 in a local garage. The owner of the garage had 2 Sunbeam Rapiers, the Coupé and the saloon. He also had a Harrington Le Mans and a very rare Sunbeam Venezia.
