I sold this 3-fold sunroof car in the late 90s to Carl Maher of Billabog fame
Anyone know where it is now?

I sold it pretty much as I had bought it (from Watford, from a VolksWorld classified), part dismantled, original seats, original paint on dash, sunroof still in & working well, patchwork brazed welding started some time previously on inner wings etc...

Looking back it was quite a rare one, early 55. Would be nice to still have it
I really like the green (Reed Green?) with beige interior
The OEW 333 plate may not have been re-issued as it had been off the road for some years
I bought it for £750 (1995ish?, & sold it for £1500 (1998ish?)

Chances are it got a custom tickle, I bet

That photo reminds me of the 55 Ragtop I had around the same time Chris. Mr O may recall this one but I've never seen it out and about. Certainly had a nice plate.

There is a Green 55 RHD Ragtop I know about just up the road from me that is a long-term restoration project- I think it might be your old car Chris, but I'm not 100%. I have just messaged the owner to ask him.

Just received a response from my friend. It's not your old car, but is a green 55 RHD sunroof.
