Whoops I keep typing the wrong thing. The first car with the Rounded radiator was the ES24. Which I located in Bedfordshire, a few years ago, and managed to get the owner to put it into good storage where it awaits restoration.
I had posted the same car almost 2 weeks back..(see below) .. cosmetically it looks nice..clearly its had a good deal of time and money spent on it, and should be a dependable and very useable car with the modern era GM engine (appears to be the common 350 or 5.7 litre) but it needs some additional work to match a few things.. the rear axle has bolt on wheels (likely a more modern unit... and is most probably a dana 44 ) whilst the fronts appear to be spilne drive.. so one would need more than just 1 spare wheel .. the good news is that splined hubs with fit the dana 44, which is almost identical the the Salisbury 4HA unit used on the 2 1/2 litre V8 saloon and Mk2 jaguar.. no info on gear box , but its likely a 3 speed auto or the 4 speed overdrive unit.. either way a very unusual car that has been mechanically altered to suit a US owner/operator.. cosmetic restoration to this standard would cost more than asking price.. but value is of course in the eye of the beholder..
