Thank you for this. Yes, I am well aware of the difference between Biarritz and Paris. My nephew lives in Paris and also has a place in Biarritz. I was unaware of from which location he was going to be driving.

Anyhow, it appears to be in Maisons Laffite 78600 which seems to be north-east Paris.

My nephew, Pierre-Henri claret, can be found at:-

yosmovies at hotmail.fr

He is French and English, his late father being French and my sister being English.

I would be very pleased and grateful if you could help him in any respect. You could tell him, for example, if that garage is half way honest??

Thanks again,

Simon, 15' from Biarritz or 15' from Paris is a bit different. They're some 800 Kms (500 mi) away.

Anyway, I can advise.

When he was little my nephew always loved my 3000 and used to say that he’d get one “when he grew up”.

Well, some 20 years later, he’s looking to buy a MkIII. ’67. Imported from California. Presumably a “Phase Two”. 

He’s French and lives in France so the LHD will suit OK. The car is in France and will stay there. I think he said that its 15 minutes south of Biarritz. Maybe 15 minutes south of Paris....

The car has fibre glass front wings, but that appears to be “in  the price”. The car sounds clean enough from what I can gather, but that’s not very much.....my being in England and the car being in France!!


Is there anyone in France who can help or advise him?


Does anyone in the US recall a MkIII with two fibre glass front wings that was sold into/taken to France??? Long shot, I know.....
