Today is a sad day for me because I’m finally selling Roary :-( However it’s a fantastic day for whoever the new owner is because it’s a great Westfield which has many many miles of exciting driving left in it.
Roary is a lovely and honest Westfield. I’ve hidden nothing in my description and, while I’m not a mechanic (you never know what’s around the corner), I would be confident selling to a family member or close friend. In fact I’m only selling as I now have a V8 SEiGHT and can't justify keeping both.
Vehicle is in Wakefield (WF4). You are more than welcome to come for a test drive. However please only come if you are seriously looking at buying a Westfield.
Photo's taken the day this advert was posted (31st Aug 2018) so you know they are an accurate representation of the vehicle.

Good Body Work (not perfect but look at the pictures and you will see it’s been well looked after)
Work required is limited unless you want to upgrade it some more. The exhaust could do with another bracket (it moves about a bit while driving and could be taken slightly further away from the body to help protect the bodywork). It has a couple of cracks in the gel coating around the wing bolts and there are the normal stone chips (mainly on the rear arches) but the body work is lovely for age (I've taken this to a number of car shows and it doesn't embarrass). The steering column needs adjustment (steering wheel isn't perfectly straight when wheels are in line). It’s a X-Flow and you need to pump the accelerator a few times before starting to get enough fuel into the carbs. It’s also been sitting for six months with only a few small blats so could probably do with a service (although it's running lovely so this would only be precautionary/routine maintenance).
I’ve driven this over the past two years on many trips across Yorkshire and the Peak District. Roary has been to Silverstone and looked the business even if I am biased! Any mechanical issues I’ve had (which have been few and far between) have been fixed with the correct parts and using the experience of the ladies & gentlemen on the WSCC forum.
There isn’t much more I can add other than that Roary always gets LOTS of admirers at the car shows I’ve been to, is a great car to drive and will be missed after being sold.
P.S. More photos are available if required. Just PM me.
