    100_0298.JPG Found this photo of Rick Kellett's D type Harrington. This was taken at the TE/AE bash at the Carlisle Import several years ago.

    Didn't know that a D-type Harrington exists in US. Nice car and picture though...

    Rick brought it to the states when he moved here a number of years ago. He had a LeMans but the Ex got it and I've heard that it may have had another owner or two since then. I haven't talked to any of the guys in the D.C. area since last summer and Rick's health had turned for the worse so I don't know what his son has done with this car. We were in Pittsburgh a few years back when he was still vintage racing and while we were eating breakfast he offered to sell this car to me. Probably should have bought it but we were in the middle of another project.

    Would have bought it instantly. How often does a D-type come up for sale ? On the other hand I well understand about too many projects burdens...

    Cool, another nice picture. Looks like a Harrington Meeting @ Washington State.
    I once bought a D-type partial interior in UK and was told it originally came from one of the Chris McGovern cars. Not sure whether he had one but sold it back to UK to another D-type owner who passed it on to somebody who just has a roof. One of the interesting D-type features is the foldable armrest integrated into the rear seat rest .The rest is also foldable like on the HLM. It goes too far here but there are further notable differences though...

    My car is coming out of body and paint shortly. Still missing one side spear and both of the very rear drop down trim pieces that look like hockey sticks. Pipe dream to find them anywhere? If so we have a fabricator out here in So. Cal. It won't be cheap but I have no pattern for the hockey stick (I have one of the spear trims. Any ideas folks? If I make them I will make other sets as well. No idea on cost right now but if anyone has them, let m know. Cheers- Bert Bennett. So Cal

    I wonder what my complete spare set of trim is worth?
