Here is the link to the drive video when I had this car a few years ago.  I just love the sound of that A1, so be sure to turn up the volume.  Also, click the little gear in the lower right corner and select 1080p quality for high definition.

The person I sold it to was a collector and only on put 352 miles on it.  This car is SWEET!!!

I'll be doing another video when I post it for sale.

Question about the Fan shroud, am I correct to assume the stock oil cooler has been removed and blocked off and an external cooler is doing all the work?

Yes- as you've surmised, there's no room for a cooler in that shroud. The cooler could be connected via https://www.cbperformance.com/product-p/1730.htm on the stock location or it could be blocked off https://www.cbperformance.com/product-p/1733.htm and a cooler plumbed in with the full flow filter.

Troy - what is the difference between the JPS and Vintage super wide (body wise)?  This car has my interest peaked.  

JPS didn't make super widebodies. Just regular widebodies.

@WNGD

I'm not sure why you think that, but it is a JPS and they did sell Super Widebodies.  JPS doesn't actually have the molds for any bodies  they bought their bodies from Kirk when he owned Vintage Speedsters.  Now days, John buys his bodies from Greg Leach and the other guy at JPS (can't remember his name) buys his bodies from Brazil.

Also, take a look at the dash.  Speedometer on the right where JPS puts them and the dash material goes all the way to the edge of the dash rather than stopping a couple of inches from the edge of the dash like on a Vintage car. 

My mistake. I have always thought that Vintage had the only super widebodies and mnay people just confused the other manufacturers wide bodies (not you Troy). I didn't even see that you had labelled the green car as JPS or I wouldn't have questioned it.
