This car belongs to James A Boffey in Australia and here's his own words about it:
"The P5 was a donation - in running order with only a couple of very small spots of rust, but somebody beleived in BOG in bulk. I reckon the car will be a bit lighter when I finish. I am removing the guards to return them to metal and the bolts have never been out as there is still tar over the heads of the bolts inside the boot. However the primer is just failing in all the hidden spots so it is imperative to reseal all areas before any serious rust gets in. Someone suggested I should make a warranty claim for the failed primer."

This car belongs to Mikael Tibbing in Sweden:
"I bought the car in 1983. It's a 3 litre Mk3 Saloon from 1966 with manual gearbox. It's burgundy with lightgrey interior. I was driving it for some years, and garaged it when I did my military service, and it's been garaged since then.
The previous owner hade exchanged the servo-sterring for a manual, but I'd like to change back to servo, if I can find the parts needed.
I do plan to have it back on the road some time - Good knows when . . ."

In 2005 Mikael showed up his gem - as new!

David Clarks P5 from 1971.


Sadly, my P5B is no longer in running order and sits in a garage. It needs complete restoration and some day I hope to have enough money and time to do it. It is a 1971 model in Silver Birch paint with black leather seats. The mechanicals were functioning okay when I took it off the road because of a seized wheel bearing and rust. It would not pass an MOT inspection (British annual roadworthiness inspection).
