For Sale, Robin Hood Exmo based around a 1983 Ford Sierra. I've owned the car for about a year now, really enjoyed driving and upgrading it during that time, but, I've been offered a car that I really wanted a while back at a reasonable price and don't have room for two toys (so I'm told). Over the winter I removed the engine/gearbox and stripped all the wiring from the car and rewired it from scratch, whilst the engine was out I separated it from the gearbox to check the clutch, all was good, I drained and flushed the gearbox and filled with new oil, the engines sump was removed, cleaned and shortened. The diff and braking system have also been flushed and filled with new oil. The car had a red Interior when I bought it which wasn't to my taste so out it came and new carpets, dashboard, dials and seats where sourced and fitted. I also made a centre console to house all the switches neatly. The car has a tonneau cover and a roof, full doors and vinyl half doors. I have removed the front ARB and fabricated and fitted rose jointed tie rods at the front. Motorbike carbs and a 4 branch exhaust manifold have been fitted and the car has been set up on a rolling road. The body of the car does have a few stone chips, a few age related scratches and a little chafing where the bonnet sits (hidden when the bonnet shuts). The rear panel has a carbon fibre vinyl overlay. The specification as I can remember is as below:
Engine 2ltr Ford Pinto
Kent cams fast road cam kit (inc. springs)
Kent vernier adjustable cam pulley
4 branch exhaust Manifold
Suzuki bandit 1200 carbs (4x36mm) re-jetted to suit

In summary, a good example of an appreciating Kit car. The car has full MOT (until April 2015) and Tax till August. There is also a folder full of receipts, and build photos. I'm looking for £2750, viewing is welcome, the car is near to Mansfield, Notts.
