OK, new year, Christmas is over, so time to put my Zetec powered Plus 2 up for sale.

I enjoy over-coming the trials and tribulations of rebuilding and restring cars and motorbikes, but that often gets in the way of actually making the time to drive them once their done. So, following a bit of either good luck in finding my next project, or bad luck in finding it while I still have my Plus 2 in the garage, clearly I need the space (& the money will be useful too :lol: ), so it's time to let someone else enjoy my Plus 2.

It's a late model Plus 2, with the 8 dial dash containing the fuse box, not ash tray. It's fully rebuild, with all important wear items (suspension, bearings, seals, etc) replaced with new less than 1000 miles ago. Resprayed cellulose Porsche Guards Red with original oatmeal interior. Alarmed with central door locking. Fitted with 2.0 Silvertop Zetec, rolling road graphs show over 150bhp at the wheels, running through a 2000E gearbox and CV jointed drive shafts. MOT'ed to October 2017, and rated for historic car tax (no cost).

Side trims are not fitted (personal preference) but will come with the car, as will full photo documentation of rebuild, together with full list of all non-original components used (with source for any service replacements).

Price to sell at ?17,995
