Car won 1st or 2nd at every show it ever attended and I have the plaques to prove it!


If you're looking for a collectible British car that will turn heads driving down the road or at any car show this is the one for you.


Always draws a crowd. especially when you start it.


A few minor rock chips in paint and a few bubbles on drivers side quarterpanel.


Car was rebuilt in 1997-1998 about 3000 miles put on it since then

Car has not really been used since 2007

(I do drive it around the neighborhood a few times a year )



Extras Included Custom Mahogany Dash and lots of extra parts!

I have all receipts. so you know what has been done.
