Rare Westfield SEi Narrow 1989

9 posts in this topic

This car has had an interesting past, it was originally registered in 1989 and we believe ran for around 2 years when oil surge caused engine failure of the originally installed crossflow. At that point the owner pushed it into the garage and left it there for many years, until another one of our members purchased it a few years ago as a project.

The car was stripped down completely including body removal, suspension engine and gearbox, a lowered floor was fitted and it is at this point we purchased the car as a rolling chassis, without an engine back in July last year.

Our plan was to rebuild the car for my daughter, not to sell it on again, however her plans have changed and my wife says that I can’t keep both Westfield’s as well as the Porsche.

Bollockybill and myself have rebuilt the car to what we consider a good standard, replacing or reconditioning many of the original parts, as said earlier our plan was not to resell the car.

The first run out was planned to be Stoneleigh so we had a deadline to meet, the car passed its MOT and was taxed for the first time in 24 years on 23 April. Driving the 200 or so miles to and from Stoneleigh was maybe a brave thing to do for a first run out, but we had a great day without any issues.

So to the spec…

    • Lowered floor on drivers side
    • Bodywork in very good condition given it age, no fading

    • Engine has only covered 3000 miles since complete rebuild
    • Purchased from another member, power reported as 120BHP
    • Weber’s have been rebuilt, new springs seals etc.
  • Fully Independent rear suspension with Westfield Diff (open)
  • Ford Type “E” fours speed gearbox

I'm obviously bound to say this because mine is so similar, but that's a beautiful car, well done rescuing it!  Looks a well sorted car and a very fair price as well, whoever buys it will be well chuffed and rightly so.  GLWTS! :t-up:

I know this car. I'm in the same branch as the guys that rebuilt this. I will vouch, this car is as good as it looks and is very genuine. John and Graham have years of experience of Westfield's. Buy with confidence. This car is " Proper ".
