This Alexander BMC Cross-Flow head was fitted to 30/174 sometime after 1959, when the car was newly purchased.  The car was exported to Germany while the owner was in the Forces, and upon his return in the early 70's he decided to sell the car.  The buyer thought the car was too quick for his wife, whom he was buying the car for, so a standard BMC head was fitted.  The Alexander head had been in a box in the sellers workshop since that time.  The Alexander head was purchased by Russ in 2003.  This is head number 91.
