The vehicle has been restored over a ten year period from 2008 to 2018 and finished to a superb standard – has only ever been used on dry days and has covered less than 1000 miles since completion but still retaining it’s original, period speedometer. Some of the work done included new floor pans, new front beam axle, all new brakes including front disc brakes and rear drums, engine rebuild including increased capacity to 1679cc using new cylinder barrels, remote high flow oil filtration system and twin Scat carburettors. The vendor states that the car starts on the button and has excellent acceleration with a good cruising speed and sounds just as good as it looks.
The vehicle sits on chrome wheels with massive, deep dish rears on 295/50 x 15 Cooper Cobra Radial G/T tyres. Finished in a custom blue metal-flake paintwork with bespoke Redhead Auto Upholstery black interior and drivers and passenger seats on runners to make plenty of space for rear seat passengers. Th vendor states it has a superb history file including many invoices for all work carried out plus photo’s.
