John Baron's 3500

The car I own is a series 1 3500 V8.First registered on 18.09.1970.She has 4 previous owners to me and only covered 90123 miles from new.
I bought her in autumn 2004.

I bought her from a friend of mine who did all the modifications you see in the pictures, the vinyl roof, mini-lite wheels, engine bay, boot rack and side chrome strips. He as also spent vast amounts of money on replacing all the brakes-new calipers, discs, pads front and yes rear, new spax shocks, new coil springs and to make the V8 rumble, a big bore twin back box exhaust minus centre section box.
In the last ten years she has had every M.O.T. done and passed everyone and only done 1252 miles in those ten years.The chap I bought her from has bought a Series 2 1971 3500 V8, same Cameron green that he is going to do exactly the same he has done to mine!!
My name is John Baron, I live in the northwest of England in a town called Blackpool, with the famous Blackpool Tower and the Pleasure Beach.
I'm 34 years old and I work as a tyre fitter for 19 years. I have a seven year old son called Alex who calls the car the time machine!!!
