The pictures below are from Hemmings  Magazine article on an original untouched March click here for the full page and article on Don Milligan's car in 2007 . Answer yes I do seek out oily rag pics rather than smart side elevations as you learn more from an original car than a glossy image. This one has a preselect box either added new or very early in its life and spent most of its life in various museums. For Robin Lawton's youtube video of RT 9473 when for sale click here for a video tour of the car.
