Harpers has recently finished an interesting and spiritually rewarding restoration project. The car was a 1967 Coupe which was originally bought and shipped to Canada. It returned late last year in a sorry state and was subsequently bought by Harpers for restoration on behalf of a Norwegian client.

The chassis had degraded to the point that it needed replacement and a new woodframe - a Harpers speciality- was also required.
As Harpers has considerable experience with Coupe frames, having built two Plus 8 Coupes recently, this did not present a problem.

New body panels were also fabricated although the existing wings were reused. The body was then repainted and reassembled
around new and renovated running gear - the engine having been rebuilt.

A new fascia was fabricated and walnut veneered and the interior was fully re-trimmed using grey Connolly hide and matching
Wilton carpet. Finally, a new mohair hood was made and the finishing touches applied before it was driven to the Docks
for very careful shipment to its proud new owner in Kristiansand.
