1989 Westfield SE - Most parts!


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

Not sure where to start with this but I have ended up with most parts needed to rebuild a 1989 Westfield SE.  The car is not registered and I would suspect many parts are past their best!  I bought this for spares for my build but ended up not using much (maybe just gearbox in the end).

 

I would like to get rig of much as possible in one go but will split.  I need the space so keen to move the chassis and bodywork!  Please see the pictures below.  Sorry not very organised!  I do not know the value so please can you make offers? (Do let me know if this is not allowed on here but I cannot see this rule in the sticky post at the top).

PS I think I will keep the gull wing roof (as not seen one before!)

If that's a hardtop with gull wing doors it may be worth quite a bit.

 

You don't see many of them around...

 

Sorry, think our posts crossed....

Yeah I have never seen one!  I was tempted to use it as a mould to create others but have not got around to it.

Would you sell the screen and wind deflectors separately? 

 

Many thanks John

While the bonnet is on the floor measure how high it is from the floor to the top of the bonnet, if that makes sense.

(Did you try getting in and out using the gullwing roof ?)

Have you got the boot box hiding anywhere?

Not sure if that’s a Westfield made roof or not - it could be an early prototype, or someone could have made it themselves. It looks quite well done from the pictures, certainly it seems to have been inspired by the factory item at least.

 

Yep, Westfield developed their factory roof option, years ago, but they are incredibly rare, less than something like six were ever made. Mainly because it was such a tricky project to make work as a retrofittable item, to do it well, meant it was complicated for the factory to make, and that meant it was really expensive when new. Too expensive for most potential buyers. The retail price back then was around £1600! (Full kits were probably only a couple of grand!)

As you you can see, the rear window area on the factory version eventually sold, is quite different.

Sorry, meant to add, Welcome, by the way!

 

There’s no problem at all with advertising things and inviting offers. We do find things tend to sell a little faster with prices on, usually. But it’s entirely up to you; it can be very difficult trying to just get prices, sometimes, so I do understand where you’re coming from!

The side windows are also different, as is the lack of C-pillar vents.  That doesn’t mean it wasn’t an early prototype.  The fact the gelcoat matches makes it even more confusing.  It’s intriguing!  Good luck with selling your bits. :)

I'd check the chassis number with the factory records before anything else

 

Just in the (probably unlikely) chance you're sitting on something special...

I am sure ther was a guy up around  Bamber Bridge somewhere i think who was developing one so he could compete in one of the GT classes. It was back in the nineties so his name escape me.
