Vehicle Description

This ’78 B was purchased new by the current owner in September 1978.  The car has 65,000 miles, all on high zinc oil, has always been garaged and for the past 33 years it has been stored from October to March.  The pollution controls were removed years ago, the manifold was modified and dual SU carburetors were installed. The original wire wheels were replaced with aftermarket chrome wire wheels and a wood steering wheel was installed.  The original spare is on an original wheel.  The original jack, knock-off wrench and hammer are with the car.  The fuel pump was replaced with an aftermarket electronic pump.
Since 61,000 miles the car has had a complete ground up restoration of the body work by Bill Shields.  All the metal work was under-coated and the exterior was matched to the original Brooklands Green.  The top was replaced, the clutch was replaced, a new electronic ignition was installed, the alternator was replaced, and the seats were rebuilt under their original exterior.  A JVC radio/media player was installed along with new speakers.  The front-end shocks have been replaced.  Five hundred miles ago, the tires and tubes were replaced with Vredestein tires and the spline shaft wire wheels were tuned and balanced.

Spare parts included with the car are a water pump, the “Y” cooling hose, brake disc pads, a halogen headlamp and the original four wire wheels.  The original driver’s manual is still with the car.  There are two tonneaus and two boot covers.

The car is located in Reading, PA.
