Fascinating, isn't it ?

The car was owned by famous Swedish writer Brigitte Stenberg from 1959 after two previous owner.
Here she appears next to LML/50/46. Surely did she want to see again a car as the one she liked...

(Google pics photos)

She had her initials in gold on the dashboard. Still on it in the barn ! See below...

In the sixties, LML/50/41 had some engine trouble and Mrs Stenberg with her mechanic decided to put an XK Jaguar into it.
The Vantage engine was kept for some years and then sold to the owner of LML/50/46. Car was sold later.
Did Brigitte Stenberg know when she leaned on LML/50/46 for the photo seen higher that the engine of her past car was in it?
The answer is yes as could be confirmed to me... She had fond memories of this car and had many details still in mind.
