This car was delivered into UK in June 2014 and is left hand drive.  The car has a current Mot test which expires February 2016.  Since arriving in the UK the car has been subject to new paint and a substantial recomissioning, in excess of £19000 in bills since June 2014.

The car is not matching numbers as the original head was beyond repair in the past.  However the current head on the vehicle is a period correct S1 4.2 head which has larger valves which many owners of the 3.8 have modified any way.

The bodywork and paint were done by Barkston Refinishing in Grantham.  ( they had the top car in the restoration show at the NEC last year  Rolls Royce 2025). Also the car has benefitted from new taillights, interior/exterior door handles and winders.

The engine, transmission, and back axle have all been removed.  Work was carried out to the rear suspension and rear brakes were all refurbished.  Also the hand brake mechanism was upgraded.

All diff and gear box seals replaced, new propshaft, complete clutch and hydraulics plus linkages.  Exhaust tailpipes, intermediates and all mountings replaced.  The front brakes have been totally overhauled with new discs, calipers, pads hoses and master cylinders. Also new reservoirs, sensors and heat shield.  Further work was carried out to the front suspension and steering, also the wheel bearings and hub seals have been replaced.

We have also replaced the fuel pump converting it back to an original set up, and fully rebuilt the carburettors. To complete, the car has been fully serviced and tuned ready to enjoy.

Files including repair and parts bills are in the file along with the mot certificate and log book.

In today’s market this represent excellent value with coupe prices becoming increasingly approaching that of the roadsters.
