Car description

FUN! Thats the best way to describe it.
Runs good, all systems function well. This car is nut-bolt restoration, not just a paint job. Its looks great underneath as well. Body was stripped to bare metal, some small rust areas replaced with steel and then refinished in bright red. I have paint codes for future touch up.
Most of the restoration was done by the previous owner, I did some additional work at my shop Dave's Hot Rod Garage where we do repairs and restoration work on many types of classic cars, we do a lot of British cars.
Photos were taken at the historic Naval Air Station here in Grosse Ile, Michigan
This car runs good, has been driven and enjoyed, its not perfect but extremly nice. I would not hesitate to drive it anywhere.
Some items to consider...Ribcase trans is from a 1275 and fully rebuiltRecent brake rebuildNew upholsteryNew cloth covered wire harnessRadial tiresMini-lite style wheelsNew gas tank and sending unitCarbs restored, Aluminum and Brass bits are polishedNew carpetNew grillePolished alloy rocker cover
If you bought a decent car then sent out for restoration you would spend in excess of 55,000 dollars. This is a bargain price for a restored car. I got a good deal and am passing it on. Note- The windshield is original.
