Westfield Aluminium Bodied Pre-Lit. (SOLD)

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

My pre-lit project started with the Ebay purchase of the body and chassis in September 2015. Although I appear to be the 5th owner, this kit had never been built since it was produced in the early 80's. I set out to build it 'in period' whilst bringing it to current IVA standard, which it passed first time in August 2018. After only covering just over 300 miles since IVA, I've decided to sell to make way for another project. It's 'on the button' and ready to enjoy now we can begin to get out. I think I've covered everything in the spec attached, but feel free to ask any questions. Here are a couple of recent photos, I have loads more, not to mention the build diary and the features in Complete Kit Car Magazine.

Price £12,500

 

Cheers

 

Gary

Thanks Gary,

I'm loving driving it and I'll be very sorry to see it go, but really have the bug to build something else.

 

Cheers

I'd buy it for the wheels alone ;)

 

Sorry to see you're moving on Gary, but builders must build!  Good luck with the sale!

Beautiful car, just right. Best one I've seen from that era. Good price too.

 

Crossflow, twin 40's, 4 speed, live axle, can't get any better.
