Thanks for the nice comment DJ. If it was mine then it would be before I owned it which is five years and unfortunately I've never had the pleasure of parking next to a B400. Maybe someone can shed a light on who does own that Vicky

I think the B400 with the red hood tops and pink doors was one I had Walter in Canada convert for me and I burned out on and sold to Tom Richards who got it to this state and the last time I saw it was on E-Bay?

So is it the same cowl as the cabriolet??????

Same basic shape for the main panels but there are detail differences. The hinge positions are different and the A pillar is different too where it has to conform to the curved, upper top part of the door. Regarding the doors I think they are same as Victoria which are not a direct match for Tudor doors.
Windshield frames look similar for B400, Sport Coupe and Cabriolet but I wonder??? Anybody know?
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.
