It might be better if he sends the chassis number to you via a private message. :!:

Thats the 739th "Chrysler" version the Mark "3" with the round instrument plastic dash ;-)

Not to be confused with the original "Rootes" Super IMP with the binnacle dash.

I can't remember. It is on the optimistic side for an 875cc Imp, though, without a turbocharger or some concerted tuning, isn't it. :D

I was just thinking about my earlier comment. A Sport-engined 875cc Imp should be good for 90 mph. So a 100 mph speedometer is realistic. :)

It was the binnacle dash cars that had 90 for the single carb and 100 for the twin carb engine Mph Speedos, the later round instrument cars were all 100mphs according to the parts list. The only variant was for Kph
