They said I'd inherit an estate - and this is it!

I've hankered after an estate for quite a while having previously owned saloon, convertible and coupe variants of the Herald and Vitesse. Back in 2002 this Herald estate came up for sale following the death of the original owner. My friend Keith bought it, but it was only on the road for a couple of years, and has spent the past eight or so years stood rusting away.

I've been badgering Keith for a couple of years to sell it to me, and last month he finally gave in. Keith swapped the 1200 engine for a 1500 from a Spitfire, but never completed the conversion.

Many thanks to Bill from Rarebits for collecting and delivering the estate. Here's a few pics...
