Hi great article and photos. I have a beautiful 1961 Sept' coupe e type, with all correct early features. I've owned it since 1979, and never looked back. One thing overlooked in the article, was Norman Dewis last minute run, overnight, in 77 RW the DHC, in British Racing Green, to Geneva. Lyons insisted on having another car, there as the demand for fun runs was immense. Must have been quite something, as Norman only got on the late ferry at Dover, when the guys on the dock, were so impressed, and perplexed as well, at this new car and its beauty that they stopped the ferry to allow him to board with 77 RW. Stuff of legends, so sadly wanting in our lives today.
