Had an offer for the Rocket 88 that I couldn't refuse..........that, along with the fact that, great car that it was, I was aware that there wasn't much I could do to it to make it mine...............

With cash burning a hole in my pocket, trawled through the usual suspect web sites...and this turned up.

Peugeot 403...running, driving, solid and scruffy......

Going up to Valleygas in November for a bit of a makeover.............

Messing around with the paint or interior on that should be a criminal offence. I'd wager it's the only unrestored 403 left, so let's hope your 'makeover' isn't too drastic. These should be a sensible, solid daily driver with dynamics far in advance of typical British porridge of the era. Get it reliable and enjoy it.

You may joke but looking back, his comedic forgetfulness was obviously a sign of the onset of Alzheimers disease which would ultimately kill him. Makes me sad to watch it now.

I that the one that went through the auction at Shepton Mallet a few years ago ? If so it originally had a whole load of spares that went with it but was too expensive for me at the time.

Nothing to with the scripts written for the character then?
Forgetfulness as a plot device to upset the other characters perhaps?

After all it’s not like he was comedicakky forgetful when playing other charchters such as mobsters or wrestling managers.

It drives well for a car of it's era [mid eighteenth century] although, like everything else of an early sixties vintage, comically under geared........

The fact that the column change is hardly an instrument of surgical precision doesn't help

There will be adjustment points on the linkage. A little lubrication will help too. Looks like a nice rare old car.

Gorgeous

I’d polish and leave as is - perhaps not even buffing out. Cleaning/ painting tidying the rims; that would be me done on cosmetics.

I bought a 403 pickup many moons back- hadn’t appreciated how damn big these things are! So in proportion, it wasn’t obvious ( to me)

Enjoy , it looks a load of fun.
