1998 Westfield SEW 1.8 Zetec

Up for sale is my 1998 Westfield SEW.
I bought this in April 2014 from a gentleman in Wales who was the 3rd owner.  He explained the car had started life as a Sprint car before he bought it, but that he only ever used it on the road, and due to life and children the car sat unused in his garage.  At the time it had a bog standard 1.6L Crossflow engine on twin 40s and that kept me entertained for a couple of years whilst I concentrated on getting the car to look how I wanted it.  In August 2016 I was offered the opportunity to upgrade the Crossflow with the current engine, a 1.8L Silvertop Zetec with ITBs by another WSCC member so over the winter period I swapped the engine and sold the Crossflow.  The joy was short-lived as only 1000 miles after installation, the big end bearings spun and I was left crying 😭.  The engine was then rebuild by JA Kits&Customs and in April 2018 the car was back on the road.  And that sort of brings us to up to date.

Other stuff
 I've got a stack of original paperwork including build manual, along with years and years of receipts.  I've also kept a blog on these forums up to date, which contains every single thing I've done or fixed.  You can read all about it on the Westfield forums. The only issue is that all my older pictures were hosted on my own web server, of which the hdd crashed at some point with no recovery possible.  After that photos were hosted on the forums, but it does mean my early posts read a little odd without pictures.
The car is taxed, MOT'd and insured so Covid friendly passenger rides can be accommodated.  I'm in Northampton a couple of miles from either J16 or J15A of the M1.
I'm looking for Β£11,000 but am open to offers.
