1 Patience Required
Some parts – the exhaust especially – are very difficult to source, but persevere as they can be hand-built by a specialist. The exhaust is the same as the Regency 3.5-litre saloon so can be found. The solid bodywork resists rust well, but do check it thoroughly.
2 Reflecting The Times
The correct paint can still be sourced, while headlights can also be found at auto-jumbles. Check, however, the reflectors are in place as these can be exceptionally difficult to find.
3 Trim Time
The birdseye maple woodwork is absolutely magnificent to look at and luckily replacements can be found; New Zealand is a rich hunting ground for trim such as this and was used throughout the Regency range.
4 Under The Bonnet
The engine is an all-important area and definitely worth a once over; the good news is that the Regency is actually very easy to work on, especially when compared to more modern cars, and all the parts you might need can be sourced… eventually.
