I think for the £140k, ex-works or not, I think I'd like the wipers to actually sit on the windscreen properly... :D

Re 569 FMO
What is the idea of the mini screen, perspex, I assume ?

Maybe to improve demisting or safety ?

For me, I'd have walked away with £28,000 in my pocket and had a very handsome coupe.

No heated screens then, used to dissipate the heat (demist) evenly over the whole windscreen.

Only the earliest cars, heater elements were also used to warm the upcoming air, then once the heated screens arrived, they were used.
