Chassis number: B239NY Registration number: LDT230 Brand new & freshly built by noted special builders Classic Restorations of Scotland. The car was built at vast expense during the past three years & was just delivered to the owner, the needs of whom have now changed. I have not added up the bills, but suffice to say the car cost a very considerable amount of money, plus the donor car. The coachwork takes the form of a very sporting open two seater with twin aero screens. The paintwork is flawless deep blue complimented by black leather seats in new condition & black carpets. Pleasingly, the original walnut dash has been retained along with the instruments. The car was given a thorough mechanical fettling during the build with everything being gone through & replaced or rebuilt as necessary. An overdrive unit was fitted which automatically engages around 70MPH in top gear making the car very long legged & relaxed at higher speeds. Feather light on the steering, the car is a joy to drive with huge torque & no shortage of acceleration. A useful luggage box sits in-front of the fuel tank. There is also more luggage space behind the front seats. A full tonneau cover provides cover for the cockpit when away from the car. A zipper splits the tonneau allowing the passenger side to remain covered whilst driving solo. A great opportunity to buy a brand new special without the long wait!!!
