  1. Could be 4 Esprits if I drag myself along too... Red, white and (2) blue
  2. What have I started?!! My '84 decals are very faded but offset to the right BTW... So anyway, as I was saying, who has AN12 then..?
  3. @The Pits thanks for having a look at this. From what I read about the history of your car I'm not sure it fits with being yours either as the geography of the early owners doesn''t necessarily fit with the car being up north. I remember the name Alan Darlington as (supposedly) being the owner of AN12 back then but that might not be accurate. Re the details; I also notice that your Giugiaro badges are also significantly higher above the waistline than on AN12. I'd be interested in (privately) knowing if you do find any suggestion that there's a link to your car, if only to satisfy my own curiosity! Otherwise it's all leading towards there being another white car wearing half Essex livery back in the day...?
  4. Thanks Fabian. I carefully chiselled round it with an electrical screwdriver and finally got it free without damaging the hole. It was almost as if there was some fibreglass resin put around the hole to seal it. Anyway, it's out now, on to the next challenge!
  5. Haven't posted on this thread for a while but I'm still chipping away at disassembling the TE in downtime from fixing other broken stuff... Just now I've been trying to remove the wiper spindle from the body. As far as I can see on the car and on the Deroure parts diagram, I've undone all of the fixings but the spindle is still solid in the body. Am I missing something? Tried wiggling it and scraping around it in case some crud was holding it but feels like it's solid.
  6. Cool. I've got one just like it only in more bits
  7. I have trunnions and aerial on the drivers side. No logic here unless there were 2 guys with drills, one on each side and whoever got there first... Anyone got an aerial both sides? Of course none of this is helping me to Identify AN12
  8. Aha! So I don't have the identical car then... Mine (or the hole where I took it off) is definitely on the drivers side. Maybe you have a continental shell?
  9. Something to do with ceramic coated bits on the intake side I think, which in some cases had a tendency to break up and get sucked into the engine. I guess most of them will have been sorted by now anyway
  10. You should probably do something about those headlamps too!
  11. Looks like it's been on fire!
  12. Yes, Essex stripes without the branding. What are the chances that back in the day, when the car was just 2 or 3 years old an owner would obtain and fit the Essex style stripes but without the name. Back in those days I assume the factory would be the only place you could get them anyway? I agree it looks like full leather judging by what looks like reflection off the centre panels of the seat backs.
  13. If I had the current reg numbers or chassis numbers of all the white dry sump cars it should be possible to HPI check them, which should show up all previous plates they've been on. @The Pits car must be on a different plate now as SAV176X isn't registered with the DVLA at all. One potential issue is this was the pre online 80s and it's possible that number plate was never 'officially' on that car. Wouldn't be the first time more than one car was running round on the same number... My hope is that one of the white dry sump owners here has enough history of their car to know if this is their car or not. I'd just love to know where it is now.
  14. My '84 has the aerial on the drivers side too...
