Hello all, I have just purchased my first Dolomite Sprint and I believe some of you may know the car ? Reg No is MDU 201P It used to belong to the late Jim Webb. It has been standing for quite a while probably since his unfortunate death so will need some work. It looks good and sounds good but it will not currently tick over although off tick over it is fine. It also needs an MOT which hopefully I can get sorted soon. Hope to then attend a show or two and meet fellow owners there. Best Wishes, David.

I remember the car well when I lived in London 19 years ago. He was a real nice guy who always looked after his car.
Glad someone in the club has got it!
