From the seller: “I would describe this car as beauty and the beast. its absolutely stunning, but brutally prepared for performance
Originally started out as a 1300sport, this is a once in a lifetime project by retired rally driver peter elliot over the course of 3 years, working 7 days a week on it.
The engine is a vauxhall, based on a john cleland championship winning gasstrack engine, 2 litre pump with an ultra lite all steel bottom end, big valveQED coscast head with hydraulic filters, anthony hawkins hot rod cams and weber 45s. A glorious custom built simpson manifold which means the car sounds awesome even on tickover.
The rev range of the cams is 4000-9000 but with a very smooth drive considering.”
