Take a three year old motor car and squeeze another four years production out of it! The premise being I suppose that Caribbean islands use old Yankee iron for taxis, not bad thinking really when films like Dr No and Thunderball were bringing the islands and their cars into everyone's lives via the cinema. The '59 T'bird remains a very handsome car.

Another eBay bargain at 99p for a mixed lot containing this and a Sunbeam Imp Police, bought mainly for the back window off the Imp which would have cost more than twice as much from Steve Flowers... So this one is effectively free. Police Imp subsequently sold on for 2 without its back window, so this one was free and I didn't have to buy a spare window from Steve Flowers...

Later..... I bought a roof and a new screen, drilled out the rivets and disassembled the car. With the addition of the new screen and the roof, we have a new fresh car.
