***** PRICE REDUCED****
She is fully ready to drive And TAX free!
I have now uprated the ignition system to coil packs and Megajolt system which has made the car even better to drive but I have left the original dizzy, coil and wires in just in case a 'purist' wishes to use them!
She has had a full mechanical restoration, from full engine rebuild to stage 2 spec, polished and ported with big valves on the exhaust, lightened fly wheel and GT cam, new rings and bores honed, crank ground with new bottom end bearings and cam bearings, core plugs renewed, 38 DGAS carb rebuilt with original parts and tuned, rocker covers and filter housing powdercoated along with all pulleys.
Radiator recored with an extra row added making it a 3 core rad for better cooling.
New water pump,
New uprated oil pump.
New clutch,
Full stainless exhaust.
Steering rack refurbed,
New brake master cylinder.
New servo.
New brakes all round (redstuff from memory)
All fluids and oils changed, running on VR1.
Heater box matrix renewed and inline fan installed for cabin heater.
Lucas coil and electronic dizzy pick up (now superceeded by the megajolt system)
New leads. (3800+ miles on it since the rebuild),
The car has had a complete chassis refurb with all of the usuall rust areas above the diff and outriggers replaced.
Everything was stripped from the car and powdercoated, everything.
It has been zinc sprayed and powdercoated in black with a subtle gold fleck, gearbox and diff rebuilt by medway transmissions, front brakes rebuilt by BiggRed and gold anodised, rear brakes replaced, all brake lines replaced with braided hoses used. fuel tank opened up, cleaned out and re sealed/tinned. new fuel hoses and cunifer pipes, wheels refurbed and powdercoated with new tyres. suspension rebuilt at Koni.
The door retainers inside the door have been recently replaced with new cut and bent stainless plates so that the door tops no longer flop around.
sunroof has been re covered in the correct coloured material.
Basically, if it could be removed and refurbed/replaced/powdercoated, it was.
New bolts and bushes EVERYWHERE, and that means every mounting bolt, every suspension bolt and every suspension bush has been changed.
Engine tuned at BD Engineering in Sittingbourne and produced a nice 178 bhp with 185+ Torque, but the only reason for the RR session was to set up the carb following its rebuild as I wasnt really chasing BHP
Interior is in good ORIGINAL condition with no rips or tears anywhere, leather oatmeal dash door cards and console and material seats with brown contrasting carpets, all original switches and guages.
The exterior of the car GRP is in very good age related condition, there are a few micro bubbles on the roof area and since having it detailed a couple of years ago the paintwork has dulled a bit, I didnt want to paint it as it shows great patina as she sits now! and polishes up very nicely.

There will be plenty more information I can give you over the phone so please call for a chat.

The car drives like a new vehicle, corners well, and happily sits with the rest of the club when out for a hoon, even at 70.... mph!

the very few niggles I have are
there is a blow from the stainless manifold on the passenger side, I have a replacement stainless manifold that will come with the car
the shocks and springs, despite being refurbed by Koni, are showing surface rust, and the rear shave sagged a bit so I have ordered a new set of shocks and springs that will be either fitted or come with the car
a very slight oil weep from the rocker covers, to be expected with the essex V6.
The auto choke sticks a bit on first start up.

there is also an extensive file of photos of the 14 moth rebuild process, showing everthing from removal to replacement of everyhting mechanical.

- details above

make me an offer.
May consider a PX up to 5k
