   Sydney sent the following in Jan 2012 with the photo of him in the vehicle: "I bought WN1-11140 in Arizona and moved it back to my place. Were we have been having a great    time driving it around. I know it has been modified but it is in really good shape. NO    rust. The engine when I got it ran really ruff at speeds over 25 mph. With very little work I    discovered that the last person to change plugs and leads put the # 3 lead into the wrong slot    in the distributor which meant it was only running on 3 cylinders. Once I reset the    timeing and fuel mix the thing runs like a Champ. I have had some problems with some of the seals    leaking. I would be great if you had a list of ware I need grease, put gear    oil, and any other lubricants. There are 12886 miles on the Champ and from my under standing it was rebuilt    in 1976 and then shortly after put into storage ( because it ran like    crap) and then was taken out to sell. It would be great to know how it got to the states."

   WN1-11140 featured in an advert by a US car dealer in Jan 2010.  See bottom two photos.  The advert described the vehicle as a 1963 Jeep and had a price of $10,950.  It    has been modified significantly with a padded red leather interior to match the maroon, blue and white paintwork.  The engine looks untouched and is still Sky Blue and the    vehicle is complete with its chassis plates
