THIS IS A VERY RARE RACING CAR IN EUROPE. LAST RACED IN ANGER IN 1981
ALMOST ALL THE HISTORY IS KNOWN. ALMOST READY TO RACE AGAIN!

IT WAS A NORMAL ROAD CAR UNTIL THE MID 1970s AND THEN WAS BUILT INTO A PRODUCTION SALOON RACING CAR. IT WAS RACED BY A GENTLEMAN BY THE NAME OF TERRY MAYNE IN THE PRODUCTION CAR CLASS.

THEN IT WAS PURCHASED BY MARK HALES WHO CONVERTED THE CAR INTO A MODIFIED PRODUCTION CAR MUCH AS YOU SEE IT TODAY. IT HAS BEEN MADE VERY LIGHT USING A CUSTOM ALLOY BONNET
 AND BOOT LID.
DOORS ARE GUTTED.

HAS THE ORIGINAL ROLL CAGE WELDED IN.

IT HAS A NEWLY REBUILT 13B PERIPHERAL PORT ENGINE RUNNING A NEW FULL LENGTH TUNED EXHAUST AND A NEW 51 IDA EMPI CARB.

THE CAR HAS BEEN TOTALLY RESTORED TO HOW IT LAST RACED IN 1981
THE SHELL IS VERY SOUND AND RUST FREE.

NEW COBRA RACE SEAT FITTED.

REQUIRES SOME VERY LIGHT WORK ON BRAKES AND CLUTCH LINES AND STRUTS BUT VERY MINOR.

ENGINE RUNS AND IS READY TO RACE AFTER RUNNING IN. IT HAS A LIGHTWEIGHT FLYWHEEL.
5 SPEED RX7 GEARBOX.

THE WHEELS ARE ITS ORIGINAL COMPOMOTIVE SPLIT RIMS 13 INCH AND 9 AND 10 J.
DUNLOP SLICKS ON AT MOMENT.

NEW ALLOY RADIATOR AND OIL COOLER HAVE BEEN FITTED.

RACETECH REV COUNTER AND WATER TEMP AND OIL PRESSURE GUAGES.

THE ORIGINAL REGISTRATION PLATE NUMBER IS KNOWN AND THE CAR COULD BE PUT ON THE ROAD QUITE EASILY ACCORDING TO DVLA A V5 COULD BE OBTAINED IF THE CAR WAS MADE ROAD LEGAL.

IN ROAD LEGAL FORM THE CAR WOULD BE MOT AND TAX FREE DUE TO ITS AGE APPROX 1974

VIEWING IS WELCOME BY PRIOR ARRANGEMENT.

HISTORIC PHOTOS OF THE CAR ARE AVAILABLE FROM THE 1970s

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.
