SOLD £4500 Westfield SEIW 2.0L Pinto 5 speed type 9 Wide Body Red MOT August 2021

Recommended Posts


I have decided to sell my Westfield as after months of lockdown, bad weather and a house in renovation it is just not getting used and should not just sit in a garage. It's a Westfield SEIW Wide Body 2.0L Pinto 5 speed type 9 gearbox in Red. Mot until August 2021. 


I had big plans to refurbish it with new bodywork. I have started it up regularly and moved it around but barely done 20 miles in the time I have owned it. The car is not for the feint hearted as its quick. The clutch is light and the gear change positive, which is more than I can say for other Westfields I have driven. 


Wet Weather Gear - doors and hood. 

Leather seats - I believe original Westfield supplied. Burgundy interior 

Brand New Battery. 


This is an entry level Westfield as it needs some work mechanically and cosmetically to be spot on, I have therefore priced it accordingly to sell. The story of the car is it was built by a guy called Mike, it is registered as a 1600. The original engine blew up and it was converted to a 2.0L pinto. If you look at the bodywork it was adapted to accommodate the exhaust going the opposite direction, suggesting the original engine was a crossflow. Mike died of cancer and this was sold via his estate sale to his friend. I bought it from the friend who had done barely 50 miles in the car. Unfortunately it has very little paperwork so I cannot prove its history. 


I believe it has an LSD fitted. 


It has a heater and windscreen. 


There is surface rust on the chrome parts and the engine bay has some oily bits. The bonnet has been notched with a bump to allow for the engine swap, this modification works but its not very neat. There is a repair on the exhaust where the silencer joins the straight pipe, this is blowing as needs sorting properly. The only other issue I have found is the carbs could be better balanced. They are large and require some priming before it will start, once running it seems fine but I have not done enough miles to say they are correct. I am from the generation of fuel injection so not attempted to play with them, the previous owner had them setup with the last MOT / service. 


I have priced it to sell, located in Bristol BS4. Happy for viewings as long as covid precautions are followed.
