HISTORY

This Westfield was built from a brand new standard wide-bodied kit by Leon Boutell. I bought it in 2007 with 9,000 miles on the clock. It's now done about 30k all told, most of it in Yorkshire (where I became Yorkshire AO). We have now retired to Norfolk but the car has also been down to Cornwall and up to Northumberland for holidays too. So, it’s great for trips out and for touring but we’ve also been to trackdays at Croft, Cadwell, Blyton, RAF Marham and Snetterton where it’s performed brilliantly. It’s been modified and improved to my requirements and currently weighs just over 600kg. I’m selling it as I now have a Rocketeer MX-5 with a 3.0L V6!

  • Rory's Dad changed the title to **2004 Westfield SEiW 20XE** Now just £8,000

A tough time to sell a car that is ostensibly a toy, but this is just so much car for that money. If I didn't have one I'd snap this up. 

 

Just browse the spec, it is an assembly of parts you probably couldn't buy for 12k and some.

 

If you don't desperately need the space or the money it is better in your garage until some post Covid spring,

That is cracking value! Having set the car up I can confirm it's a good un. Yes it has been used plenty, but that just proves good reliability!

 

Best of luck with the sale, Martin.
