Help identify this Ariel

Postby Akumar » Thu Oct 20, 2016 2:07 pm

Dear fellow enthusiasts,

I have acquired a “new” Ariel. Is this a W/NG? Any thoughts are appreciated.

Looks unusually complete with "correct" tin covers to timing chain and primary chain for later models. Nev

Good one, Akumar :) Still has the field stand lug. That's a big bonus. Where has it been the last 70 years?
