The car originated from California prior to being imported to the UK in 2013. All import and VAT fees have been paid on this car for your peace of mind.
In 2018 the decision was taken to strip the vehicle entirely in preparation for a ground up rebuild
in which no expense was spared with high quality, original specification parts being supplied.
This included a total engine rebuild in which the block was stripped back, overhauled and fitted with new internal components. This comprehensive work included almost every engine component being either restored or replaced.
A heavy duty clutch was installed, a new flywheel was added and a new exhaust system was fitted as part of an unleaded conversion so that the car can be run on modern E5 fuel.
The car was also treated to a cosmetic restoration as well. This included stripping the bodywork back to bare metal and carrying out a full body respray in the cars original colour scheme as well as replacing the chrome parts with fresh new components.
Since the rebuild the car has covered less than 500 miles and has received an annual service every year regardless of mileage. The current owner keeps the car garaged and under a custom fitted cover when not in use.
At the heart of this classic sports car is a 2912cc British Motor Corporation 'C-series' engine that produces 148hp from it's six cylinders. The fantastic engine is mated to a four speed manual transmission with an overdrive function and delivers a charismatic exhaust note as its taken through the gears.
Cosmetically speaking, the hard work and perseverance of the restoration efforts are reflected in the cars visual condition. The full body respray brings the car to life with the classic two tone combination of Colarado-Signal Red over black as a secondary colour. The car is sitting on the optional 15 inch wire wheels wrapped in chunky era appropriate tyres.
Inside the car you will find the original black leather seats which were polished as part of the cars restoration process. The decision to leave these original seats in places offers and authentic feel to the interior of the car as well as being a comfortable place to sit and relax as you admire the work in the rest of the cabin.
In conclusion this is a great chance to own a genuine 1960's classic that is not only in excellent condition thanks to a thorough restoration but is also steeped in history and prestige. This stunning example offers the new owner an authentic experience from the golden age of British sports cars with the knowledge and reassurance that the car is prepared for the roads of today.
