This includes fresh paint, new chassis, new wiring loom, new bushes and seals throughout the car (body and suspension), media blasted suspension parts, new water tubes, cables, and the list goes on.

Items to note:
Front end has been repaired prior to me owning the car. When preparing the body for paint I noticed areas which had been repaired. It appears it has a whole new front end fitted. You would not notice from the outside that this work has been done.
This car was restored in 2016. I have since had a back operation and working on cars is proving difficult for me. Therefore I am looking to sell. I have driven the car to a couple of shows and always walked away with a trophy. It is a real crowd puller and gets a lot of attention.
