If you have read my project thread The Golden Coupe you will realise that due to my serious ill health I cannot work on this car anymore . I have spent a fortune on it methodically going through the whole car and spending a fortune on it .I paid 5000 for the car plus delivery and have spent much much more on it . I do need to get some money behind me so I cannot give the car away. Would like to recover some money back .
It is running but it will need to be trailered away .
So firstly it has a Galvanised chassis this was done by Robin Rew quite a few years ago and then the car was not used . The chassis is 100% rust free . Very unusual .
So what’s been done .
Rebuilt radiator with uprated core and fitted with high wattage electric fan all new hoses , new water pump , new high output alternator . New battery , new steering UJ , new 38 DGMS carb , new fuel pump . New alloy timing wheel from QRG . Front and rear screens resealed with new rubbers front screen tinted and laminated . Copper brake lines and new stainless braided flexihoses new servo and brake master cylinder rebuilt . ( Great pedal ) New handbrake cable . Rear brakes , adjusters , cylinders , shoes and springs etc all new . Clutch cylinder rebuilt .

Fuel tank has been removed cleaned out and repainted and refitted . Pedal box was taken out and cleaned painted and regreased. Heater removed from car , cleaned ,core checked out repainted and refitted . New boot lock . Motolita steering wheel.

The car has 72 spoke wire wheels fitted that were fitted new before the car went into storage and will be reusable , tyres need replacing due to sidewall cracking . Body pretty square and paintwork reasonable but usual microblistering in some areas .

There is work to do but 95% of it’s done . Car will have to be collected from Dorking Surrey .

Interested then contact me by PM .

Photos the right way up plus some of the interior and under bonnet would help a lot with the sale.
Sorry you cannot enjoy the car any longer,I know myself how the advancing years take their toll!

Roy, so sorry that you have to sell your project. Especially now that you are so close to being able to enjoy it out on the open road yourself. I can only imagine that it won’t have been an easy decision to make...

I don’t want to waste your time, so may I be blunt and ask what figure you have in mind for a sale?


Kind Regards,
