1957 2 door A35 Fast road / rally spec - fresh build For Sale

This lovely 1957 A35 has been modified to keep up with modern traffic, and is perfect for historic rallies, hill climbs, and track days. Conversion into an Academy Spec racer is possible with some further mods - although this would make it less suitable for the road. Most of the work was completed in 2014, then she was in storage until 2018, and has only completed a few hundred road miles since then (with no competitive use). Over £25,000 was spent to create one of the best A35's around, so here's a chance to buy a ready-made fun classic that will no doubt appreciate in value, given the massive interest in them lately. Here are the main specifications: Bodywork - Stripped and sprayed in Buttercream yellow Strengthened suspension mounts Bonnet professionally louvered, and with leather buckles added Academy spec front cool air intake Glass windows all round, with new rubber seals Quick release fuel cap (original size fuel tank) Original spec Lucas rally reversing lamp Towing straps front and back Chassis / suspension - New Armstrong lever arm shocks New Poly bushes on reconditioned wishbones Anti roll bar fitted on front Rear anti roll bar removed New front and rear springs (ride height now a little higher, as per photo 3, taken at Brooklands - around 5 inches) Rostyle wheels 13 x 5.5J plus a spare New tyres 155/70 x 13 Brakes - New MG Midget front discs Metro master cylinder Metro servo and pedal box Engine - Reconditioned 1275 Midget engine (Peter Burgess) Ported and polished head SU carburettor (ISN type, from Marina A Plus) with K & N filter 4 - 2 - 1 - Sports exhaust Skimmed flywheel (for 7 inch Ford clutch) Converted to alternator New coil and distributor Bespoke aluminium Oil catch tank Alloy radiator with Kenlowe electric fan (with override switch on dash) Spin-on oil filter conversion Aluminium oil cooler Transmission - Converted to Ford Type 9 (5 speed) gearbox - ideal on the road New Bellhousing to accommodate gearbox Hydraulic clutch Reconditioned differential Hardened competition half shafts Interior - much of this work was done by Darryl Davis Full HRDC Academy roll cage (by Caged Laser Engineering) New carpets and headlining Sparco Sprint FIA seats TRS FIA harnesses (2019) Rewired throughout Mota Lita aluminium steering wheel and boss Additional console for tachometer, and oil pressure / temperature New door cards Documentation for the car we call "Butterball" includes the original brown card log book, purchase receipt from 1957, user manual, lubrication poster, plus many receipts and historic MOT's etc.. Mileage is a genuine 80,460 and there have been 6 previous owners. The car drives beautifully, starts first time and is kept on a trickle charger in a garage. Road tests are welcome, although a deposit and proof of insurance will be needed if you wish to take a drive yourself. I may consider a part exchange with a lower price vehicle plus cash.
