The car was purchased in 1974 by Malcolm Nixon and it is believed the vehicle was a doctor's car which came from Melbourne. The car was complete but in a very run down state.

The engine was stripped down and reconditioned and the brakes were overhauled with new tyres being fitted. The body and guards were shot blasted and repainted and the hood was recovered. All chrome parts were rechromed. A new marine plywood floor was fitted inside the car and the seats were upholstered in leather. The restoration of the vehicle was carried out over a two year period.
