Martin Mountfort's 1951 Mk VII
Martin Mountfort's 1951 VII

Attached are photos of my 1951 Mk.VII soon after I  got it MOT tested in October.That was the first time that it had been on the  road under it,s own steam since 1970.   I am now getting ready to spray it.

My Mk.VII was made in summer 1951, it was bought from Jaguar export by a Spanish diplomat who worked in Bristol . As a result it is right hand drive and was never actually exported.

She has only had two previous owners . I met the last one who had owned  her since mid sixties when I purchased the car in December 1997. She was in a garage cum cellar under a quaint old split level cottage at Cheltenham.
Took me a day to free off breaks so that we could tow her out of the garage. While I was doing that the son of the original Spanish owner came around  to have a look.He is in his seventies now.

She has many early features like camcovers without studs around the front.
The old style water pump with loads of bearings and two grease nipples.

Very wide fanbelt

Please Click pictures for enlargement

I enclose pictures of my MkVII now  painted.

Also enclosed is a picture of a MkIX which I saw in Stratford East London, it had a tax disc up 2001 so must be tested and on the road.
