California van used in Hollywood in the 1960s to haul people around for a production company. This has been the longest-term project I've ever undertaken, primarily due to outside forces. Engine is done, seats reupholstered in leather (not OE!) and hopefully on the road within the year. These were often used by motorcycle racers in Europe during the 1960s to go from track to track. I bought it to haul bikes too, new and old. And to freak out the squares...

Mark, nice looking project! Can you share info. on how you got the later model 4 speed to work? Is that a later model Thames tranny LHD?
PS I like your taste in cars, I have owned at least one of each in your collection at some point in time - very nice!
