The type 44 cars, as I understand it, have a splice in the long "+"
battery line under the passenger footwell carpet. It tends to degrade,
resulting in extra resistance between the battery and the
alternator/starter. This results in poor charging/starting. Along with
all the "usual suspects" this should be investigated.
You might be able to diagnose it by disconnecting the battery ground
wire and measuring the resistance between the battery "+" terminal and
the big wire going to the starter. With the car off, of course...
