Thanks for the photos Tony. I have a couple of engine bay shots that can join yours!!
The owner is a STOC member, who as you say is a 'Big Healey' fan as well. An association with Peter Riley the former BMC works team driver and Rootes team driver of Tigers led to ADU 311B leaving Peter Riley's hands a couple of years ago and receiving its restoration by JME Healey.
Graham Rood was a former keeper and he has advised on the restoration. 311B has been restored to its final specification (the 1966 FIA Homologation) with a paint guise of midnight blue with black hardtop. I am hopeful the car will be attending a STOC event very soon!
