Westfield SEI Narrow 1990 - NOW SOLD

Recommended Posts

After much thought my Westfield is for sale. I've not been able to use it anywhere near as much as I'd like, and ongoing work to the house means I'd very much like to free up some additional funds. I've owned this car for three years and enjoyed every moment, both on road and track.
 
Currently advertised on eBay for £6,750, but I will consider offers from WSCC members as I'd like it to stay within the club if possible.
 
Drop me a PM or give me a call for any details - 07850 754455
 
Located in Oxfordshire

The Fiat engine is an absolute pleasure – nice and torquey low down, but it revs beautifully when hitting cam at about 4k and sounds fantastic! It has been nothing but reliable since rebuild and has coped with sprints, trackdays and the occasional commute and road trip without complaint. 
 
As with any trackday car this is no garage ornament, and as such there are a few bits to be aware of:
•   The gearbox crunches into third, I suspect due to some incorrect oil it’s had in the past. I have a replacement gearbox that will be included with the sale (along with many other spares), I just haven’t had time to fit it. I’m currently driving around it by double-declutching.
•    The bodywork has a fair number of light scratches and scrapes. It looks fine from a distance but it is noticeable up close.
•    Last winter I gave the chassis a rub down to clean off some surface rust and gave it a couple of coats of POR-15. Whilst very effective, it’s not pretty – although most is hidden by bodywork.
•    It has a fairly track-oriented setup. Whilst fairly soft and compliant, the geo settings make it very agile on track. The trade-off for this is it can be a little twitchy on the road. This can easily be dialled out with a geo session depending on your preferences.
 
I’m selling to free up some money for ongoing house renovations. I’ve used this to compete in the Javelin Sprint Series for the last couple of years and it has been enormous fun (not to mention surprisingly competitive) – I have plenty of Youtubes to bore you with if you want to see it in action on road or track. 
 
Passenger seat and harness are included as well - I have removed them for sprinting but easily re-fitted. MOT until end of July - happy to put another 12 months on for the right buyer.
 
Also available by separate negotiation is a Brian James Minno twin-axle trailer with new LED lights all round – a perfect match for this car and small enough to fit through a standard garage door.

Bump. New sprint car has been purchased, so I need the space!

Any interest for  £6k as it stands? If not I'll renew the MOT and swap in the new gearbox. Price will be updated to reflect this.

And pics as she currently stands. The passenger seat is back in, sprint stickers removed and I’ve added some pics of the engine bay and the rebuild Quaife diff.
