    Hi Troy. That certainly is an early one. Although it will have been built Oct ’59 – not ’58. It has the early steering wheel and interior door handles that were only fitted for a few months.

    Sadly it looks very rusty. Never seen one rust inside above the windscreen before. Do you plan to restore? Looks like a lot of work.
