Top frame and side curtains (frames good, panels could be replaced, needs new top cover for the top frame)

Two drivers/owner's manuals (one is missing cover)

30 years of Sacred Octagon Magazines - lots of great tech tips in them

Set of Whitworth wrenches, other tools

Wood is excellent

Body parts excellent - all parts are there, one front fender has small 1/2" dent at the front lip - very reparable

Virtually all there but lots of it in boxes - may need new wiring harness and some other gauges for the instrument panel.
