If the 1850 is viable, why break it? With the way values seem to be going, and with bonnets available elsewhere, it may be a decision you regret in the future!

Is this going to be a restoration thread? If so then I'll move it to the "resto" section for you. If the 1850 is an auto then it really should be saved if possible. I know of about 60 surviving 1850 autos worldwide.

Well, you're in the right place for that!

Where are you located incidentally? You may be local to folk that can help more directly.
