Here is our wonderful?? Westfield seiw. It has been in the family since it was built by my father and I. It was first registered in 1994; and finished it the following year. We somehow managed to convince the Chester DVLA that it was made almost entirely from a Ford Sierra and was allowed to retain the donors registration plate. The original intention was to use the car for touring, so the interior was trimmed in red Connolly hide with green piping, the carpets are Rolls Royce green Wilton with red piping, whilst the dash is finished in Red Connolly hide.
The car, a Wide body variant, was originally fitted with a Ford X-Flow bored out to 1700cc and fitted with 1300cc pistons, a Kent 234 cam, duplex timing chain, oversize valves and weber 40’s etc, that
revved like crazy, this was matched to a Ford Type 9 five speed box. The removal of leaded fuel from sale meant that a change was needed and the current C20XE engine sourced and installed.
The X-flow was sold on to a member of the WSCC from Chester. Whilst fitting the XE engine an SBD lightened flywheel was installed, the sump removed and the crank checked, all was in tolerance, but new shells and ARP big end bolts installed, these allow the engine to rev to 8500, but we always limit the engine to 6500, it originally ran on 45 Dellortos, these were eventually replaced with Jenvey 45 Throttle Bodies and the ignition system upgraded to a DTA E48 for both fuel and ignition.
When my parents moved abroad, the car was passed to me and I have continued with the process of improvement, the seats have been replaced with more supportive racing seats, a Sparco demountable steering wheel and a Quickshift round off the interior changes. These were mainly to lower my seating position and enable me to look through the screen rather than over it. I also fitted an RAC roll bar and replaced the rear boot trim.
I was never happy with the DTA ECU, so a Megasquirt 2 v3.0 was sourced from the USA, built and installed. This has revolutionised the driveablilty of the car, you can poodle around in traffic all day long, but press the loud pedal and the beast awakes!!
Another unique feature of the car is the storage space, it comes with a lockable demountable boot box, trimmed in green Connolly hide (naturally) that more than doubles the storage space if touring. Easily removed/fitted with a single bolt fixing.
Some of the many key points of the car are below, but it really needs to be seen to appreciate how wonderful it is.

We really haven't spared anything on the car; and it has been a labour of love as its progressed over the years with all work carried out to the highest of standards. The cars build began whilst my father was an engineer at Rolls Royce, hence the amount of work that was carried out by trimmers who worked there. It is with a heavy heart that we are selling it, but for family reasons I need to sell.
It comes with 3 months MOT remaining; but it always sails through without any issues. I can if requested put it through to it’s MOT early and sell it with a full 12 months.
You really will be buying a lovely car and you will not be disappointed. We have almost all of the paperwork records of MOTs etc. from the cars history.
If you would like to hear it - although this was on the old DTA FAST ECU - not the Megasquirt which is a huge improvement, here is a video of an evening track event at Cadwell Park - I know it can go much quicker but never had the heart or ability to do so!
