DETAILS

Priced £54,000 LHD or £58,000 RHD.

 

Originally built 19-20th October 1966 this 3000 MKIII BJ8 Phase II is finished in Black with Colorado Red two-tone, with Red seating and Red piled carpet. The car is supplied with its original engine, body, chassis and rear differential all matching numbers. As a late model this car features the ‘De-Luxe’ cockpit with rich Walnut dash.

This example is presented in very presentable and solid condition throughout, totally rust free and remarkable clean having been fully restored between 2011 – 2016 with less than 1,000 miles since. The scale of the works was comprehensive, with the car taken back to bare metal, the chassis repaired, repainted in stages with the body removed and panels painted separately.

The engine was removed during the restoration and repainted and is believed to have been fully rebuilt, with the car displaying excellent oil pressure, making good power and idling smoothly. The gearbox and overdrive have just been refurbished by ourselves September 2018 and is as new.

Inside, the car totally rewired by ourselves, the seats re-upholstered and new carpet fitted throughout. The roof is of the correct vinyl and fits well. The wood was all renewed or replaced during restoration and is excellent. Since photographing we have improved the centre console fit, fitted new rear springs, new tyres and upholstered around the shift gaiter.

The car is provided with MOT, a heritage certificate of authenticity and details on restoration works. A much recommended clean car.
