November 1989, registered, taxed, MOT’d and home in London. My garage in Manor Park East London was only big enough for my Mk11 Consul so the 57 was out on the street. I was lucky it never came to any harm. After about a year I very nearly sold it as I’d seen a stunning 58 Impala in Arizona. That deal fell through and the price of the Impala went up so I decided to keep it.
