I bought this as an abandoned restoration project 2 years ago, it returned home in boxes of bits many missing (as I found out) some parts in good order, some not so. I have slowly worked through assembling this car and what was expected to be a six month project is still not finished due to various issues nearly 2 years later.
The car is running and more or less complete, goes like a little rocket and stops well too! Virtually every mechanical/electrical part is either brand new or professionally refurbished. From the galvanised chassis and then powder-coated and filled with rust-proofer (came like this) All new braking system/clutch system/starter/dynamator (alternator) All new wiring loom and cables/every light is either new or NOS. Engine and gearbox or both reconditioned units supplied via Joe Mason with full synchro on the gearbox, Performance inlet manifold and 4 into 1 exhaust. It’s very quick with a ‘rorty’ exhaust note. Wheels all refurbished with new quality tyres/ all new suspension and bushes everywhere. New rad with electric fan to ensure no over-heating., All new interior trim with storage area trimmed out as is boot. New side-screens supplied but not fitted. As I wrote if you can think of a part it is probably either brand new or NOS or professionally refurbished. Some works were done by the previous owner so not everything is done to a standard I would have expected, this is where the time factor comes in. Complete with a high quality (expensive) outdoor car cover.
Needs side screens fitting, has been started by PO. Canopy fit not perfect and price reflects this.idle needs sorting OK when to full temp but tends to stall when cool. Timing needs sorting (electronic ignition fitted) probably will help with idle. Lots of little jobs need finishing.
Reasons for sale: lack of time, family issues (Dementia) over last few years have involved me spending a few days every fortnight in Yorkshire/other project and family life mean I just can’t spend any time on it. Clearly it’s MOT and Tax exempt, but fully road legal. Happy to give a test drive to NON timewasters.
Any questions please ask, I have loads of pictures, PLEASE NO TIME WASTERS or canvassers.
Firm on price as reduced to sell.
