The roof of the museum is meant to be like that - they also display cars on top. Not a great idea in my opinion, but what do I know? It made the lighting a bit on the dark side and not ideal for displaying vehicles at their best. Normally, 1103 was parked alongside CSX3019 as they were 'loaned' to the museum by the same owner.

1001 is shown in 1970 (I think) when it served as a road car. The location is an unsurfaced car park which I suspect is in Sussex in the south of the UK. It raced during 1968 and '69 when it was owned by Malaya Garage of Billingshurst, Sussex who dealt in Porsche and Mercedes. I could have purchased it when I saw it in their showroom for (UK) 3,750. I had around 200 to my name at the time....and, as a well-used and abused race car, it was in a seriously rough state!! It was sold to Terry Smith who had it road registered.
