    UKT 700 left Jensen's West Bromwich works in late April 1955 and subsequently, fully assembled, rolled out of Austin's Longbridge factory a couple of weeks later on the 11th of May headed in the direction of Bromley Motors Works Ltd in London. The car was originally Spruce Green but was subject to a fully detailed and photographic restoration some years ago and we believe it was painted Reno Red at that point. In spite of the age of the restoration works, one would be forgiven for thinking that it was completed in more recent times, such is the level of quality. The paintwork still looks fresh with a deep and even shine and the shut lines look factory tight. The black leather seating is gently patinated and the black carpets are edged in red leather. The bonnet is louvred alloy, 100M style, and when combined with the excellent weather equipment and new wire wheels the whole car looks 'just right'. Patently well looked after, it has enjoyed a lot of success in recent years at car club events and local Concours. More recently the cylinder head has been rebuilt by Sigma Engineering. UKT 700 is accompanied by its Heritage Certificate confirming dates etc and matching numbers.
