Originally supplied by Haynes of Maidstone, I found this car in its home county of Kent.
This car belonged to, and was restored by a serial RS restorer, and collector, and only came to market to fund a home extension.
The car has been sympatetically restored to a very high standard, maintaining its originality wherever possible, but including a few sensible upgrades for modern traffic use.
All components were renewed or rebuilt.
There are 2 walkround videos on our standrewsautos youtube channel
The Pinto engine has a gas flowed head and a fast road cam for a little extra grunt, and is coupled to a type 9, 5 speed gearbox with a quickshift kit,which gives you much more relaxed motorway driving.
As you can see the underside was fully rotisserie restored, with very few new panels required. It was then stone chipped and painted body colour , with all cavities wax injected, making this a very useable show standard car
The car received NOS front wings,rear arches and door skins,all fitted to a very high standard,with perfect gaps,and then painted Signal Orange to a very high standard. The finish on the paintwork is exceptional.
Interior remains largely original retaining its uncut door cards . Its had a new parcel shelf ,headlining and the seats have been refurbished with new Aldridge foams and correct seat covers
The refurbished rims have been fitted with slightly wider 60 profile tyres
All in all , this is a very well restored,very useable example,whichs drives exceptionally well .
As always, we would happily take another classic in part exchange,whatever its value
Please feel free to contact Andrew on 07836 226228, or email via our website
Thank you for reading
We appreciate that since the Coronovirus pandemic,it may now be difficult to come and view our cars, so we would be happy to offer a walk round video for all our stock, if required.
I am able to offer safe social distance viewing , and safe door to door delivery.
I am lucky that I live and work in the same place , so I have full access to our vehicles. If you can't get here,I will happliy provide an honest description for our cars, and we can still arrange delivery at the moment.
I've been in the motor trade for over 30 years, and feel like i'm fully qualified to provide an honest and accurate accessment, plus we only deal in quality vehicles here.
We have also been paranoid about cleanliness here, to the humour of others at times , and every car, key set , door handle,switch,know etc etc is thoroughly wiped.
