During my 15 years of ownership I have tidied up all the wiring loom, re-powder coated the suspension and fitted new bushes. Had the LSD checked over by Road and Race.
Car comes with loads of receipts, original bill of sale, photos when new, all Caterham Blackbird magazine articles, suspension set up info, plus many other useful bits of paperwork, old MOTs, etc in two large folders.
The spares included mean you can keep this car running well into the future.
Never thought I would end up selling but have some big life changes coming in 2021 means I would like to find a good home for this fabulous car. Probably one of a handful of genuine purpose built Caterham Blackbirds with the correct factory chassis. Car is brilliant on road and track and highly entertaining to drive. I have been on 6 trips to Le Mans in the car and its been great. Never seen a salted road in my ownership. The private registration will be removed. The nosecone transfer can be removed. No trade seller enquiries please.
