Built over a 5 year period by two brothers (both retired classic car restorers), passing the SVA test in June 2008. In addition to the challenge of building a car from scratch the intention was to use for the occasional rally and hill climb but as both chaps are now getting on (in their 80`s), the car was virtually unused from 2015 and put in storage.

A very well known customer to us. Has commissioned us to see the car on a consignment basis . As he has recently returned to France .

In our opinion this is a fab little purchase for an enthusiast car lover looking for some cheap summer fun .

The car is proudly presented in our showroom for appointment viewing only .. No test pilot's please or dreamers

He bought the car last year with the intention of importing it permanently to France and using it to blast around their beautiful roads in future summers and keep me off of a motorbike. Having spent the winter preparing it with most ancillary items replaced and a new mot (with no advisories), I now discover the SVA and mot are not sufficient for France and it needs a `Certificate of Conformity`, which it will never get. Hence the reluctant sale.

The donor was a low mileage Cortina MK4 running a 2.0 litre Pinto engine mated to a 5 speed Sierra gearbox. The chassis is 25mm square box steel, the body completely aluminum. Simple, unique, quirky, hand built, old school fun. I've not polished the aluminum as I like it looking old and patinated.

New water pump, timing belt, coil, plugs, etc already done. Lanoguard`d underneath and chassis.

He fitted a quick release steering wheel with a boss extension to giving him more leg room as he's 6ft 3in and 16 stone, obviously this can be restored to `normal`. The wheels are 15" Dunlop type period rims with quality semi-slicks for handling. 3m 65cm long and 1m 70cm wide.

Old School` Lotus 7 `lookie likie` hand built `Locost` / `kit car`. A one off!
