Overview - May 2017 - an exciting new project for the team here at Alpine Eagle, arriving with us shortly after Christmas 2015, this true and one of the last important barn finds is about to receive an exacting restoration which the car undoubtedly deserves; 3-BT-103 is fitted with its original stunning two door coachwork by H. J Mulliner; located in England this car has been barn stored for the best part of 40 years; astonishingly the body work and panel work seem in remarkable condition; whist the engine was dissembled and spread around we have used our extensive knowledge to locate all parts but a few nuts and bolts; we have already begun work dry assembling the engine to see what other parts may be missing and we are happy that the engine is complete and have now started the pulling down procedure to begin machine work; the body has also started to receive attention in the way of paint removal and so far the only damage found is a small dent on the rear!

August 2017 - the body has now been completely stripped of paint, doors, boot lid and interior stripped completely; the body braced and removed from the chassis; the chassis has been very undisturbed over the years and it is still possible to see the original finishes of the fittings and fixtures under the road dirt; all pipework and fittings have been removed and stored ready for restoring; the front suspension completely stripped along with steering and rear axle removed; with the car jacked up the chassis was painstakingly cleaned and paint stripped by hand; no chassis damage found to be present on the car; the chassis was etch primed and re-finished in a black /brown combination; nuts and bolts for body mounts and chassis fittings have been re-finished in nickel plate as original for corrosion protection; body mounts, chassis cross members and brace bars have been re-finished and re-fitted where possible; the steering and front suspension has been completely stripped and cleaned and is currently in the painting process; we are hoping to start re-assembly of the front suspension shortly
