Additional Information

This MK1 XR2 F. English built Fly photographed by the author in 2003 when I nearly purchased it! The car now has a new owner in Scandinavia.

The photos above and below are from the Article in Classic Ford May 1998. Considered to be one of the nicest unrestored examples to be found—it certainly drove very nicely when the author had the privilege, and a very original example. As collector’s cars these Cabrio conversions are beginning to realise their potential.
