2004 Westfield SEW - SOLD

Recommended Posts

 

OK, So I've been putting this off for a while but due to some unfortunate family circumstances a new job, lack of time to use the car & now the loss of the garage the car is currently kept in  I'm reluctantly selling my 2004 Westfield SEW. I've had the car on ebay a cpl of time & really cant be bothered with any more idiots, dreamers & test pilots 

 
Car is a wide body SE powered by the legendary Toyota 4AGE 16V big port engine running on Dellorto 45's & Omex 100 3D ECU with a Ford Type 9 5 speed box. Correctly registered as a Westfield on log book using the donor vehicles registration, I have had a lot of questions about this & I have checked with DVLA & the car is correctly registered, log book states it was assembled from parts not all of which were new the car has recently been given historical vehicle status & no longer requires taxing 
 
I'm the 3rd owner the 1st being an RAF technician that built the car to a very high standard. I bought it in 2015 with the intention of using it for sunny weekend blasts & the occasional track day, which it did admirably until I blew the head gasket on a track day in August last year, I used this as an opportunity to refresh the car a little & have really just finished the little jobs that needed doing this weekend.
 
The 4AGE engine was stripped, cleaned & rebuilt & balanced by the respected Guys at Engine Services in Musselburgh to the following spec at the cost of over 4.5K including the  parts  
  • Stage 1cylinder head tune & high comp skim 
  • TRD 1mm head gasket 
  • CAT Cams 7105138 hot street/track profile using the correct CAT retainer set & HD spring set 
  • Genuine Toyota small port 11:1 pistons - weighed & balanced 
  • Forged steel H beam rods with ARP bolts 
  • ARP cylinder head stud kit 
  • Aisin OE spec oil & water pump
  • ACL HD main & crank bearings 
  • Lightened flywheel 
  • Crank, flywheel & clutch assembly fully balanced.
Engine is still running in on mineral oil with around 200 miles on it but it feels strong & will rev very well with the Cat 267/262 cams but remains very tractable at normal driving speeds, similar spec 4ages are running around 170-180bhp & rev to well over 8K  
 
While the engine was being rebuilt I had First Motion (Type 9 Specialists) strip & rebuild the gearbox to their FM298 heavy duty spec at the cost of 1K.
 
Chassis wise the car was fully set up for fast road work with a set of matched & dynoed Protech coilovers by its previous owner I have treated it to a brand new set of gloss black 13" TD Pro 1.2's with Toyo 888's these have done half a track day & a small amount of road work, loads of life left in them, the car handles very well on road or track!
 
 
Car has covered 7,336 miles in total & comes with mountains of detailed history & receipts. It has nice detailing like carbon dash, stack instrument cluster, Hawk fighter starter button tidy engine bay (I spent a day steam cleaning the engine bay while the engine & box were removed),  lots of lock wiring, twin fuel pumps Cobra seats, Williams harness's the list goes on & I'm sure I've missed loads of stuff.
 
I wouldn't describe the car as mint as it does have the odd mark here & there, its been used! but its in good clean condition.
 
I'm looking for 7.5K for the car which I can assure you is a huge loss on what I've paid for it & have spent on it over the last cpl of years. If you have any questions please give me a ring or drop me a text on 07855443754

Cracking car. I was drawn to it and enquired at one stage when it was on eBay. I really want TB's rather than carbs and also I'm not sure the 4age engine is what I'm after. It is a car with a lot of nice bits on though and it seems a really good sensible price to me. GLWTS

Yes, SEW is wide body, SEiW is independent wide :t-up:

'A lot quicker than it looks on paper' alert! I am sure you won't need luck to sell quickly :)

Looks nice and good price too. Just to check the car has been through SVA/IVA?

How do I know if it has been SVA? Surely it wouldn't of been issued a V5 if it hadn't?

If the docs say Westfield , chassis number is the same on V5  , then I cant see an issue with registration being incorrect. 

MOT comes up as Westfield SEW

I've just pulled the cars files out & it has a SVA cert from 2004 when it was first registered I was a little worried there as I didn't recall seeing one. It would appear the registration thing was a bit open to interpretation? I guess the upside is that it now has historic vehicle status & doesn't need taxing.

car does look good!

But how come we have never seen you out @Geordie-D ? Our local runout starting point is near the Silverlink so can't be far :)

Not being anti social Chris I just don't have the time. My job keeps me away from home 3-4 nights a week & as I mentioned in the ad some unfortunate family circumstances mean the little bit of free time I have cant be spent playing with toys at the moment.

Sorry if I came across like I was calling you dishonest or anything it's just there are cars out there that have been creatively put on the road to avoid iva/sva but in your case all is well. It will just be an error on the DVLAs part that you've ended up with the donor reg.

Am sure it won't hang around long at that price :yes:

No worries just looks like a typical "north east aeroscreeners" car and would no doubt have fit in well!
