OK Nick, it was assembled in Sweden from (mainly) British parts; how's that?
It certainly had all the endearing characteristics of a normal British sports car and most of the parts:
Girling brakes & hydraulics
Laycock 4spd w/electric overdrive
Terminal case of rust
It's probably easier to list the bits that weren't British:
B18 engine (brilliant motor)
Anything else ???
