This delightful SS 100 style roadster was originally manufactured by Carisma Engineering. Sandy. Beds.  

It is a Carisma Century and uses Ford Cortina Mark IV mechanicals on its own sturdy chassis. Around 23 of these were supplied in kit form and I have managed to trace a lot of the owners

She is a 2 seater though 2 small children could possibly be accommodated in the rear (No rear belts fitted). It is better suited for a dog or luggage! 

Originally built around 22 years ago. the current owner has undertaken a rolling restoration over the past 3/4 years including a full respray. new instruments and a (now all black) 1934 Wolseley string bound steering wheel. Sporting Aston Martin 2/4 wire wheels with 4 virtually new tyres she drives very well but would benefit from more regular usage than the current owner is able to provide.  

Offered at a fraction of the price of the genuine article £300. 00+ or even a Suffolk SS £60. 00+. she provides a huge amount of fun without the worry associated with hugely valuable cars.  
You can't drive her for any distance without people waving or calling out to you and she gathers admiring crowds wherever she goes which proved a little embarrassing on a Jaguar stand at a car show where she got more attention than the E types and XK's.

'Carrie'. as she is affectionately known. is currently on display in a a beautiful centrally heated classic car showroom in Wylam near Newcastle upon Tyne (contact details will be provided).  

Looking for the best offer in the region of £15000. the owner is currently seeking an interesting classic/vintage car project so part exchange may be possible.
To discuss please call Andy on 07900 634252
I will ensure that she will have a new MOT when sold. The car will not be released until payment has cleared. Delivery could be arranged at cost within UK
