This car was completely stripped back to the bare shell, media blasted and fitted with new panels were required using either Heritage or Mini Machine panels. Panels fitted included front panel, wings, inner & outer A panels, door skins, full floors, heel board, closing panels, sills and boot floor. The shell was then completely sprayed inside and out and the underside stone chipped and painted body colour. Both subframes and suspension parts were either powder coated or painted. The car was then treated to waxoyl in all cavities and both doors. There is a file of paperwork with the car, Heritage certificate and rolling road print out showing 90.40 bhp @ 6000 RPM.
This is a stunning example and must be one of the nicest ones on offer.
