Well, it's been a lot of fun, but I've got to put my pride and joy up for sale to fund a new project (to do with beer for a change, not cars).

?26,950 o.n.o.


Car has a large history file and has undergone a large scale restoration over the past couple of years along with a huge file of photos (over 1,000) detailing rebuild.
Engine completely rebuilt by Vulcan ~4,000 miles ago with forged pistons, vernier cam sprockets, re-ground, crank, unleaded valve seats, timing chain, oil pump, water pump, electronic timing (fabulous system) etc, etc, etc. NO LEAKS!
Also rolling road tuned up by Vulcan.
The gearbox has just been rebuilt by Paul Matty, along with the addition geared started, new clutch bearing, arm, fittings, clutch housing, clutch plate, starter gear. NO LEAKS!
New brake master cylinder, refurbished brake callipers, new flexible brake lines, new pads, new discs - all round.

New Mick Miller CV joint conversion (original with new rubber donuts supplied).
New clutch hose, slave cylinder and master cylinder.

Comes with swirl pot to fit.
We took the chassis back as far as we could and treated it all.
New front light housings with halogen bulbs.
New air filter, housing and airbox.
The car is regularly detailed by Sports Car Protection.
I've not had any issues with the electrics, so I've left them all alone.
Has a signed CC steering wheel.
