Glad to see you are planning on improving and driving the Goose. Such a beautiful car and so often shut away unseen in a garage (as mine was by the previous owner for over 15 years). I hope to be able to restore mine over the next few years but that will depend on time and resources (and garage space...). I own Goose number 1114 which is the sister car to yours. Virtually identical (except condition, of course), right down to the mis-stamped VIN. Mine is also backwards. Please keep in touch and post progress pics here. If you need anything that I can help with, let me know and I will try.
