Reappearing in the 1980's (or at least the registration 6003VC did!) it was campaigned by John Woolley, and others, in (it seems) every historic rally for nearly a decade.
Many thanks to Sean Kukula for providing the following history of 6003 VC's busy career at this time;
I did quite a few events in the car including the Rally Britannia 3 times (An event that ran in front of the RAC rally during the Sunday on the spectator/stately home stages), the Telford Historic, Imber stages a couple of times, Epynt (Between Xmas & new year where it was so icy you could barely stand up in the services area which resulted in a rather exciting moment which involved us running out of braking room & going straight down a very steep bank only just avoiding the river at the bottom). Another classic was the Coronation Rally at Pembrey in January which again was very icy. A recent storm had made a telegraph pole weak which then broke near the top bringing the wire with it across the road, we were next car on the scene & somehow the wire got caught on the sumpguard hence we did a very commendable impression of a plane landing on an aircraft carrier! Later in the day whilst trying to regain the time lost a rod came out of both sides of the block & also the sump pan (At around 8000 rpm), the gudgeon pin had broken but the rod didn’t, it just turned into a squashed “S” shape.
The car was sold to Jim Murray who had previously rented this or another car from John. I then did 3 rallies with Jim, Rally Britannia, The Mid Wales Stages & also the Imber stages (not sure in which order)
