In 1989 I originally purchased this car in the UK with Chassis plate BT21-16 and with a frame stamping AM180. I have diligently researched and recorded the above history with great help from Jim Gleve of MRE in UK. And from Max Batton a previous owner. I do not claim absolute accuracy, only this is a summation of the history available attached to this Chassis and Arch Motors frame stamping numbers. The original purchase agreement of sale in 1989 is available and will be supplied with the car.
