1947 Vauxhall 10 - first drive in 41 years

I'm afraid this is now for sale. Have a look at eBay and you will see - have a bid if you would like to own it. I'm afraid I just don't have time to do the work (and won't be hppy with a rough job if I rushed it) so it will have to go. See http://www.abs-zero.com (click through to 'the old site') and also the listing on eBay at http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200946082683 (starts 9pm on Wed 24th July 2013). Thank you to everyone who has looked at this and taken the time to write a nice comment - they really have been appreciated. :-) I still own the other Vauxhall 10 and will keep that a while longer as it's already part restored. If anyone wants to see it, I'll make a similar video and upload it. My plan to have two Vx10 cars restored to pass on to my two boys will have to wait a while... :-) If you've seen my other video of this car you will know I bought it after it had been stored in a barn for over 40 years. I have since rebuilt the front brakes and needed to turn it around in the garage to get better access to the rear brakes to rebuild them too. Unfortunately the starting of the engine is missed off the clip, but as I've now rebuilt the fuel pump and put new fuel in the tank, starting up is pretty easy - pull out the choke, turn on the ignition and press the starter. There's still no coolant in the engine, hence why I turned off the engine before stopping. This is the first time I've attempted to drive it at all, so a big moment for me. Hope you enjoy it, feel free to comment if you like.
