First registered in the UK in September 1960, the first fastidious West Country owner kept the car until 1997. Since then there have been two other West Country elderly owners, 1997 to 1999 and 1999 to 2014. In January 2014 I purchased the car after a full respray. A photo record of the respray is available.

As 478 JYC had seen very little use by the two previous owner I recommissioned the car carrying out a full service of all, steering, suspension, brake parts, hydraulic seals, tyres and a head overhaul for unleaded fuel. The engine was stripped and new main & big end bearings fitted together with a new oil pump.

The car still has very good & balanced compression reading and has a running oil pressure of around 50 - 55 psi.

The seats were restored with new foam and leather covers together with a new vinyl hood with a zipped rear window and a zipped tonneau cover. The original alloy side screens are included.

It has been converted to a single 12 volt battery.

It also has the benefits of a full stainless steel exhaust system.

It is also fitted with a thermostatically operated electric fan and a high core radiator which results in cooler running in the warmer Mediterranean climates and also when held up in traffic jams!

A Ford Sierra Pinto 5-speed gearbox was fitted in 2014, using the Hi-Gear Engineering Ltd housing & prop shaft. This gives the same ratios as the original 4-speed gearbox plus the advantage of a 0.85 fifth gear for relaxed RPM when touring.

The original 4 - speed gearbox & prop-shaft are available if originality & matching numbers are required by the new owner.

The steering wheel has recently been updated and the very original steering wheel is included in the sale.

This is an extremely reliable and much loved car. It is only being sold due poor health which now makes it difficult for me to drive.
