PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR VIDEO PRODUCED 22ND JULY BY ACA OF THIS CAR

1,498cc. This car was bought as a rolling chassis with roughly fitting body. The front and rear are fibreglass, the central tub is aluminium on steel tube frame. The front appears to be of Ashley origin, the rear unknown. The chassis is believed to be Bowden from around 1959/60. The central aluminium tub was not removed from the frame during rebuild as there was no rust any where on the chassis and frame. The front suspension is a narrowed Vauxhall Viva, the rear axle a Ford 100E (a Ford 105E Anglia axle comes with the car). A Ford pre‑crossflow 1500 GT engine was purchased as a rebuilt unit. Gearbox is a Ford 118E with 2000E ratios with 105E rails (reverse gear can be reluctant to engage fully). All the braking components are new or refurbished. It is a dual circuit system. The wiring, lights and gauges are all new. Currently the car is running on twin 1.5" SUs on an Alexander manifold (modified to fit). It comes with a twin Dellorto DHLA 40s set up. It will run on this set up, but poorly. The Dellortos need rebuilding and rejetting or replacing. It comes with receipts for the components totalling almost £2,000.
