Additional Information

Below: Some additional photos showing both sides of the car and the white Chevrons in an earlier part of the cars' life. Later at the T.C.C.C.C. STAND ON THE NEC Show , the car can be seen looking very resplendent - other than the two white chevron sections which have been reduced on each side" The car has undergone lots of period additions all correct and is a very unusual and rare colour.

Below: This 950 popular car is reputed to be the second F. English built Fly (Classic Ford 1998) If so it has a large number of upgrades including a part XR2 chevron Flash to the side and rear, fitted mid 1983 as standard on the XR2 conversions in Silver, Red or Black. A very unusual colour but striking example. See the F. English history section for early Cars.
