This was a full rebuild project for a customer.

The car was purcased and although it was running, the previous owner had done some rather questionable repairs and paint work on the car.

We identified the panelwork that was initially required along with some mechanical work. The car was stripped and delivered to Sefton Classics (Liverpool) who completed all of the panel work and repaint (in the correct colour).

The car was completely rebuilt.

It required new subframe and associated parts, new petrol tank and piping, new full wiring loom fitted, new brake system fitted, replacement interior, all switches/electrical components replaced. All new engine ancilleries.

Prior to us receiving the car to start the work, the last MOT was dated 2011 with 14,652 Miles logged. The new MOT when the car was completed on 21st March 2018 states the Mileage as 14,662. Thats 10 Miles in 7 years!
