The car was built for the fast ford challenge in 1991. It was featured on the front cover of practically classics magazine Sept 91. After taking place in qualify it suffered engine failure. It spent the next 25 years in storage.
I have spent the last few years recommissioning the car. Including replacing the entire braking and fuel system. The original magnesium alloys had cracked so these have been replaced with new alloys.
I have had a custom aluminium radiator made for the car ( the original AVO Rad is included).
The car also has the following:
Safety device cage with added harness straps.
RS alloy sump
40 Webber Carbs
4 branch manifold
Grp4 Fabrication Fuel tank
Rear Quarter Fuel filler location.
Bonnet and boot are fibre glass (Boot needs repair where hindge attaches)
The car was original Red before the build took place. The bubble arches are steel construction. The exterior paint work was done nearly 30 years and is in very good condition. It has a few scuffs as to be expected. I repainted the engine bay and interior when recommissioning.
There is no rust or rot on the car. It needed no rust repairs while recommissioning. The only welding that was done was to correct bodges that took place during it original build.
It is running an Atlas disc braked rear axle with sierra Cosworth callipers. The axle has 4-link brackets.
MOT'd until April 2020
The shell has not had a big tunnel fitted or 4- link boxes so could be turned back to std. if the new owner so wished.
