It has Edelbrock performance intake manifold with High Performance Aluminium Heads, Hydraulic Lifter Cams and Hi-tech Push Rods. (The engine was re-bored with the intake manifold, alloy heads, new pistons, competition cam etc in 2004. But the cam was replaced with a normal one so the car would drive ok on normal roads!) It breathes through a Edelbrock 1405 600CFM Performance Carburettor, and cooled through a stainless steel header tank and alloy expansion tank. It is fast, MPG unknown! The engine bay is tidy but needs a good clean, with a stainless steel Edelbrock air cleaner and “Cobra” Powered by Ford valve covers.

The car has a Clova twin fan kit which can be started from within the car if required. The engine and body electrical loom are standard Gardener Douglas equipment, with most relays and fuses under the passenger foot well, and some under the bonnet. The hand brake is good and firm. The coil was replaced in 2017 with a flamethrower to ease starting. History The car comes with a full 12-month MOT and MOT history. The car has been serviced each year by myself, with new oils, grease and filters etc. every year. The last MOT said slight play in nearside and off side lower suspension arm ball joints.
