Relisted Again

 Bidders please. don't bid if you haven't driven one or chatted to someone who has.

the power-to-weight ratio of these sevens allow tremendous acceleration. coupled

with superb go-cart road holding and responsive steering gives you sporting motoring in its truest sense.

This is a fun. exiting and exhilarating rural road car and NOT a tourer.

Over seas bidders please read whole listing and do research before bidding.  

No more jokers

Very low milage

Tax and MOT

This is my very lively and responsive little beauty that I have had for over 11 years.

I have all the mot cert's to warrant the milage. /p>

I am now unable to exploit its full potential due to mobility. o I have chosen to sell.

I used to show this car when it was in concourse condition but with the last four years of no road use 

I would class it now as in very good condition.

Last year a front calliper seized so I decided to replace a thousand pounds worth of

callipers. discs. bearings. pads. bushes. track rod ends. gators. rear shoes. cylinders n fixings. seals. fuel pipes.

master cylinders. carb fixings and gaskets and much more to remember or list.

The carbs have been jetted. tuned and set to supply the demands from the special cams which produce142bhp by QED.


Tech. specs; gas flowed head and inlet manifold. cosworth springs. 140 profile cams.

2 x twin 45 delorto's. fully balanced. comp. clutch. stainless steel exhaust system. /p>

RS 1600 close ratio 4 speed box. RS 2000 live axle limited slip diff.

magnolia hyde seats. motolita steering wheel. revolution 4 spoke alloy wheels. /p>

full weather roof and side screens in magnolia to match interior trim. black zipped tonneau cover. /p>

tonneau and roof tube bags. chrome roll bar and traditional dash instruments.

Cons; Over the last few years some micro-blistering has appeared on some of the fibreglass panels.


Viewing or any professional inspection very welcome.


Please ask any questions and I will reply asap.


Delivery could be possible for the costing of fuel and any expenses.


Thank you for looking. enjoy life and don't waste it. nbsp; good luck.


Winning bidder to pay a £100 deposit within 24hours from listing ending 

and balance through paypal or cash on collection.

Remember it is 25 years old so if your looking for a show car don't bid.

But it wouldn't cost a fortune or take a long time to get it there for the motoring d. i. y'er.

 If your looking for a nice looking classic to enjoy and drive around to excite then this is for you.

To quote another seller 

"Please come and look before you bid as I'm sick of the classic ebay morons winning stuff and not buying. "


You will find it very hard to find an equal.


The axle ia a reinforced RS2000 Escort live axle and not from an Ital.


It has now been fully serviced and a new ignition coil fitted.
