Further remarks

Colin Hyams, the man who bought Hooper in 1981, has owned this car in the seventies. The first document that proves his ownership, dates from 1974. The car was registered RX11. In March or April 1976 the registration was changed into 007004. In December 1977 the interior of the car was destroyed by fire. The conversion of the car must have taken place in 1979/1980.
