Westfield V8

Nicely put together genuine SEight, registered in 1996 and currently on only its third owner.

The car is on a Q plate and was built from a Kit with numerous genuine Westfield parts. Obviously its correctly registered as a Westfield.

Finished in the traditional dark Blue with Yellow wings and Ducted Nose, with Yellow Chequeers on the bonnet

Prior to purchase the car had stood for around 15 years in dry storage, so had suffered from some neglect, with all the rubber elements of the car deteriorating and getting really dirty!

As part of the recommissioning the car has had wide track front suspension added, all the brakes have been refurbished and all suspension has been re-powder coated and rebushed. The chassis was originally powder coated and this has stood up well to storage, with no corrosion evident. The car was thoroughly inspected and no chassis cracks were found (and yes I do know where to look!)

 

The car has a contoured dash with the usual compliment of functioning VDO instruments fed by a factory wiring harness. The seats are the comfortable highbacked variety in Blue to match the dash, with the carpets being Black (the blue fades over time). The steering wheel has a detachable boss for added security. Quick release harnesses are present to both driver and passenger seats.

There are sidescreens and a hood with the car, both of which are in Black.

 

The engine is the ubiquitous Rover V8, with a capacity of 3500. Its fed through a 4 Barrel Holley carb and dinner plate air filter. I suspect there is a modified cam shaft fitted but can’t confirm this….The electronic ignition has recently been replaced as have the leads, cap plugs etc.

The car has a pair of side  exit exhausts as you’d expect, and makes all the right noises.

The gearbox is the LT77 from a Rover SD1, and this has had all the linkage bushes replaced.

At the rear there is a Sierra 7” diff the ratio of which appears to be 3.62, and it has a viscous LSD.

The refurbished wheels are shod in new 205 tyres, and there is a spare on the rear

 

The Car has covered only 7500 Miles and has MOT until May 2021 – This can be retested to provide 12 months MOT on purchase.

 

This car is a fabulous tourer. The torque is addictive with the car just swallowing the miles, climbing any hills in just about any gear, a great car to take on those weekends away. It drives great having had a geometry set up and just needs a new home with someone who will enjoy it.

 

Ready to rock and could be sat in your garage ready to go when the sun is out and the temperatures go up a bit!   

Realistically priced at £13500.
