Hello - Thank you for your post.

What is the vehicle number for your car? It would be located on the metal plate, about 4-inches square, located on the firewall under the hood (bonnet) of the car.

Can you post any photographs of your car to this forum? Thank you.

The vehicle number indicates the chassis is the junior 8-cylinder chassis known as the "120", and it was the 17th such chassis built and supplied to a coachbuilder for completion of the bodywork.

Most all phones and desktops/laptops/pads have programs to reduce the file size of pictures. Very anxious to see some photos.

PS - if you're unable to resize photos, we can make other arrangements, send me a PM.
