This original 2.4 litre right hand drive MK1 was registered JRN 881 Sept. 18th 1956 and appears to have had just 4 owners. It was converted to fast road spec in 2011 by The Lenham Motor Co, which included the fitment of a rebuilt 4.2 litre Jaguar engine with fast road cams, electronic ignition, alloy radiator and sports exhaust. Fitted to a Mk2 manual/overdrive gearbox, the car also has power steering and uprated front suspension and Coopercraft front brake calipers.
Cosmetic work was also undertaken, the interior re trimmed, a new headlining fitted and all the woodwork refinished. Re painted in its original colour of British racing green the car sits on black painted wire wheels.
The previous owner purchased the car from the Lenham Motor Co in 2012 has only used it sparingly, it remains in great condition throughout and has just received a full service and tune up in our own workshop. It is supplied with invoices for the work undertaken plus an original buff logbook that dates back to 1966. Resembling the infamous car driven by 1950’s racing driver Mike Hawthorn it is well a well presented car that has a really purposeful look coupled with a great driving experience.
