British Racing Green, built by John Ellis from Rickmansworth in 1993. 26,527 miles only. Dunlop spoked wheels. Tonneau cover. Excellent condition.
It has the registration number of the Cortina that was used as a donor so the registered date is 1978.
The engine was re-conditioned i.e.:-re-bored and the crank re-ground, the cylinder head had steel inserts fitted to make it compatible with unleaded fuel. It had new pistons, shells oil and water pump, cam, followers and oil feed, valves, starter motor, alternator, radiator and a re-conditioned 2 litre carburettor. It was fitted with a new stainless steel exhaust system.
The four speed gear box that was used was a new genuine Ford recondition unit and the prop shaft was new. When the rear axle was modified it was over hauled.
The braking system had a new master cylinder, flexi hoses, piping, discs, hand brake cables and all the wheel cylinders were over-hauled, a dual servo was fitted and new pads and shoes were used.
The suspension had all the ball joints and most of the bushes replaced and a new steering rack was used with the kit's new column.
A new loom was made and the lights were new Lucas units. The dashboard is walnut and the instrumentation is all VDO (the fuel and speedo were calibrated so as to be accurate and they work).
The upholstery is all leather, carpets leather edged, the hood and torneo cover are double duck, the bumpers, boot rack, spare wheel strap and radiator grille are stainless steel as are a lot of the bolts and most of the screws used in the build.
The car has five Dunlop knock-on spoked wheels and the tyres all have at least 5 mm of tread.
John is a level four N.V.Q.registered Volvo Master technician and took a pride in building this car to what I believe to be a very high standard, not sparing on the cost which was over £11,000.00 in parts (ie; without any labour costs) the intention being to make the car as near "new" as reasonably possible.
In total, over £12,000 has been spent on this car. I am looking for £6750 ovno.
