2003 SEW 1600 CVH

WILDERSWEST

Reluctantly offered for sale my Westfield SEW

 

I have owned the car for 7 years and the time is now right to move on to a new phase in motoring, so the car has to move on to a new owner to enjoy through the summer.

 

The car is a 2003 SEW that I have owned for the past 7 years and in that time upgraded many items.

 

The car has a recorded mileage of 10060 and will come with a full 12months MOT

 The car is powered by a 1.6 ford CVH.

 

The original engine whilst sound did not have any history so it was replaced with the current engine 4 years ago, that  was purchased from a fellow Westfield  owner who was upgrading. The engine was originally set up by the ford specialist Faraday Engineering and was rebuild prior to installing into the car. It had a new oil pump, water pump and the crank reground and seated.

 

3 years ago £700+ was spent on the head, it was ported polished and skimmed by Cylinder Head Developments and a Kent fast road cam (cvh22) and Vernier pulley installed, the set up now produces 130bhp. It is naturally aspirated via twin 40's

 

The gearbox is a ford type 9, with 5 gears and has had the seals replaced (however there is still a minor leak from the front seal (a common fault)

 

A new clutch and pressure plate was installed when the engine was replaced

 

The suspension has been replaced using Protech shocks and springs, valved by Procomp and set up by Adam of CleaRMotorsport

 

The wheels are 15 inch OZ Racing multi spoke alloys with Toyo Proxes TR-1

 

It has chrome wishbones

 There is a spare wheel carrier (but no spare)

 

There is a full set of wet weather gear with boot tonneau, doors and hood

 

The rear axle and diff were rebuilt several years ago.

 

There is a new speedo (not fitted) but will go with the car as the one fitted is temperamental 

 

The car is in deep blue with Le Mans stripe with carbon effect wheel arches and rear protectors, the combination looks stunning 


Carbon effect LED daylight running lights have been fitted to compliment the carbon headlights with upgraded bulbs

 

The car has the benefit of a heater and blower but it currently is not plumbed in.

 

The project for this coming winter was to tidy the body as this is showing signs of the cars age with some crazing marks

 

I have been a member of the WSCC for the past 7 years and the car has never missed a beat when out on a run. It starts first time, sounds great and is a real head turner. It is a good reliable, economical fun car that has had a considerable amount of money spent on it. It will provide someone with a great introduction to westfields.

 

£5750.00 

 

Viewing welcome

Car purchased by a friend of mine. He had it shipped and was just starting to enjoy it.

50 miles in, strange noise from the rear.

He asked me to listen to the noise, initially I thought it was just a rear wheel bearing on its way out.

He then took it to a well known garage for advice, the garage found, it was the diff breaking up internally

Crown wheel & pinion severely worn and starting to break up, He had no paper work to show what had been replaced in the diff in the past or who did the work.

Unfortunately its now a full diff / Axle rebuild, Just over £1,000 which will be fully documented with warranty.

Not such a great start to enjoying a Westfield .

I know it can be frustrating when things go wrong, but to be honest - for the price of the car it’s not the end of the world to have to do this.
 

Hopefully it will make it even better and more enjoyable.
