Hi thanks for the response. Looks like I`d better get in touch with the AC register because that is totally wrong. The car was built in 54 as the first Aceca prototype and Campbell isn`t listed anywhere in the logbooks- especially in 64 when it was in Torquay, original or continuation.That`s why we think there was some arrangement between the factory and Campbell,especially over the Bristol engine fitment.
Thanks anyway for your response and help.
