I see from the Workshop Manual that the 400 and early 401 both used a shutter arrangement in front of the radiator. You could re-instate the shutter to keep the originality of the car.

Not sure if its a part you need but I have a column shroud, with steering wheel attached, through which the column passes and engages with the splines.

The registration of the 400 looks to be GSF 424, which is Chassis no: 400/1/513 - a 1949 car. The history of that car does not tally with the article so there appear to be some "wires crossed"...

Hi Geoff and Kevin. I agree entirely with your comments on the new leather in the 411. It is wrong to have it "loose" like that straight after trimming. If indeed Connolly hide has been used, the...

You will no doubt enjoy refurbishing the seats. Much nicer than...
