In July of 1975, during the restoration of the Ash door frames, it was suggested that the car be re-styled after the Sir Malcolm Campbell car, which resides in America, making this the only example in the United Kingdom.

The owner at that time went ahead with that suggestion and commissioned marque specialists to complete the work.

A subsequent replacement of the full ash frame took place in 1988
