Car handles like a sports car and loves to be driven. In a previous life in in Canada it was taken on cruises to Columbus, Syracuse, Willy's Home Run at Lancaster and most of southern Ontario. GoodGuys, Canats award winner. Car has been to several 600 plus car events where it was the only Prefect there.

Car was customized, re-framed and new driveline installed in Canada in 2000 and was sold and moved to US in 2012. After refresh of body work, paint, new soft-top, and minor mechanical work in 2015, owners drove this Prefect on a road-trip to relocate it from Kansas City to Punta Gorda, FL (about 1500 miles); FUN and lots of attention all along the way! As previous owner said the car "loves to be driven"!And, this car likes to be shown: So far in US it has been in a number of shows and exhibitions where it has been the only English Ford Prefect in any of the events, and the people love it! (If you do not want to be noticed, do not buy this car!)
