The car has been completely restored over the last 3 years. It was bought as a sound car needing restoration, re-imported from the USA.
The car features the correct for year narrow rear wings, wide fuel tank and outer-rim laced wheels. Looks very “period”.
It is now fitted with a1350cc XPAG engine and gearbox to match, modified half-shafts and rear seals and a VW steering column. It retains the high ratio rear axle fitted to the original TAs.
The work done includes: (photos and receipts to verify)
- Complete strip down, body off. Timbers renewed as needed.
- Chassis checked for alignment, shot blasted and repainted
- Rear axle half-shafts and seals modified and renewed
- New balanced prop-shaft
- Reconditioned springs, new rear trunnions and front bushes
- Rebuilt brakes and wheels with new tyres(5)
- Rebuilt instruments and switches, new wiring loom and CVC unit,
- New S/S exhaust system
- Recored radiator, new water pump and rechromed shell
- Engine rebuilt by Ron Ward with lip seals (full spec available separately)
- Retrimmed (NTG Kit) and new hood, side screens and tonneau (all in tan)
- Full set of period tools
It is fully run-in and de-snagged. It goes very well with good oil pressure and no overheating.
(Would consider part-ex plus cash for 50s/60s sports car – any condition)
