Inside the car features a Moto-Lita wooden steering wheel, has auxiliary power ports and interior lighting.
Restored between 2007-9 with just 5,000 miles since, the car was rebuilt from a bare metal chassis with chemically-dipped panels, the car is finished to a very high quality standard and now features (as well as it’s original power unit provided with the car) a Austin Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8 engine (a very valuable item, rebuilt at the same time) built to high specification road performance with a lightened flywheel, heavy duty clutch, uprated camshaft, new pistons, electronic ignition and HD8 carbs.
Additional upgrades include front disc brakes, uprated suspension and dampers, DWR steering box, an alternator, upgraded cooling, upgraded headlights and safety electrical fuse boxes.
