    Greetings everyone!

    My first post, so bear with me as I will do my best to check replies ASAP.

    My 1953 A40 Somerset drophead coupe has been owned by my family since 1962. Last year, I convinced my father to sell it to me, and subsequently place it in the hands of a professional restoration facility. Immersing myself into the history of the car, I submitted info to the British Motor Museum and received a Heritage Certificate. I was shocked to see the Certificate return stating my Somerset was in fact, a Sport. Having lived with the car for 58 years, I know it to be a Somerset.

    Here’s where it gets interesting. In a DaveWhy post, he mentioned Sport and Somerset chassis are the same. Is it possible during assembly the chassis for my car was originally intended to be a Sport, but at the last moment, possibly to fill an export order was switched to a Somerset?

    Thoughts?

    Thank you and stay well everyone.
