Unfortunately the car needs a mechanically minded person to fix. I pressed the clutch down and a seal in the clutch slave cylinder leaked. It requires the engine out to replace the concentric slave cylinder located in the bellhousing next to engine, and probably a clutch stop behind the pedal to limit travel. Also needs a new battery. All-in-all roughly a day's work in the right hands with someone who has the tools to do it. Sadly I have neither the expertise, tools nor time to carry out the above. Note: this car is not road registered, its a track-only weapon.
I removed the fire extinguisher with the intention of mounting a passenger seat but didn't get round to it in the end. All the extinguisher parts and plumbing are there and can easily be refitted if need be.
As per the previous owners description, I've listed the full specifications below:
CLASSIC WESTFIELD RACE CAR.
It was magazine featured in 1991 and a well known car. It has just been rebuilt to a very high standard. Almost everything on this car is either new or reconditioned. It has cost an absolute fortune to recommission, But plans have changed. There is lots of history with it including build photos, receipts and magazine cut outs. It has been built to be light, fast and handle well.
Bespoke light weight roll cage, Reworked chassis, Independant suspension all round, Quaife LSD diff with alloy Quaife housing, Upgraded drive shafts, Anti roll bars front and back, Quaife straight cut dog box, Alloy bell housing, Braided fuel and brake lines right through. ENGINE:2.0 Duratec Cosworth, Mapped at Day Tuner Performance and did just under 260Bhp at 8400rpm, Balanced, Keywayed crank and pulley wheel, ARP bolts right through, Cosworth slipper pistons, Williams con rods, Piper FULL race cams, Double valve springs, Ported high flow head, Cosworth dry sump, Bespoke oil tank, Cosworth 3.75KG Fly wheel, AP race clutch and pressure plate, Cosworth roller throttle bodies, Large alloy radiator. FULLY programmable M.B.E ECU. This is a new engine and just been on the rolling road. Brakes are four pot alloy AP calipers front and 2 pot AP rear with new Mintex RACE brake pads all round. Center lock hubs, Center lock Compomitive split rim wheels, 9" rear, 8" front width (13inch diameter) on Pirelli slicks. Foam filled alloy fuel tank with new pumps and adjustable fuel pressure regulator. MOMO suede wheel, New in date Life-Line fire extinguisher plumbed in, FIA electric cut off, New Hans harness in date, rain light, LED rear lights, Floor mounted pedal box, R500 silencer, Concave mirror, Aero screen, Fully adjustable shocks all round, New quick rack, Modified Kirkey ally seat. TRS tow straps. Full flat ally floor front to rear for aero dynamics. New paint in old school Lotus colours, Sherwood green and ermine white. This car is immaculate and ready to race. The first picture below is of when it was magazine featured in 1991.
Been advised the car is worth over 13k in parts alone. Engine is brand new and can test it to be working using my main car's battery to start it up. It has had new bosch spark plugs put in. Concentric slave cylinder and battery for the repair should cost between £250-300. Looking for £10k which I believe is fair, given a fully working track car equivalents (duratec 260bhp) would fetch upwards of 13k. Gutted I can't do the couple of bits to get this car sorted myself but it needs to go to someone more knowledgeable who can put this car to good use on the track.
Due to it being a track car, you will need a trailer available to transport, or alternatively delivery can be arranged by myself at cost following full receipt of funds. Inspection of the car in person would be much preferred beforehand to ensure you are happy, prior to purchasing the car.
If required, I also have a Brian James Micro Max trailer for sale separately if required. Price of £1300. If buying both car and trailer together, price is 11k, including a trailer wheel lock and ratchet straps for transportation.
Thanks for looking,
