Hi Dave I run a 1940s J14/6 use it regularly for trips up the coast in suffolk /norfolk , happy around 50mph good on fuel , a tad under 30 to the gallon. A part from a failed rota arm not had one breakdown in 3 years.

Quite a few bits here in the store if you need anything. <cbuk2011@aol.Com> Assume you will be joining.
Check the front suspension units, they leak and need regular topping up, also the rubber joints between the rear springs and axle perish and allow the axle to rotate. This ends up fraying the brake cables. See if you can remove the fan belt, if it sticks under the crankshaft pulley the engine support rubbers need replacing. There is also a cross member which supports the front wings which is centrally mounted to the chassis on a rubber bush. Check this has not failed. Good car and should bob along around 50mph

completeautomobilist.com for the wipers
The stabilising bars which have adjustment screws incorporated are suppose to be for positioning the radiator surround and grill and adjusting its angle to match the bonnet. They do not work very well and merley twist the surround. We have found that if you remove the rods from the front and then bend them to fix near the top side of the surround they work very well for adjustment. Doing this you will also be able to retain your current air cleaner. See attached picture
