Variant name:Twin Cam ,Derivative:Twin Cam ,Variant: Twin Cam After having been dry-stored in a barn for 29 years, this car was originally purchased in 2009 as a restoration project for use as a track day car however, as the restoration progressed the precision to detail become more apparent and the car was meticulously rebuilt to such a superb standard, far exceeding any original expectations. From 2009-2010 this car had a full ground up restoration which included a complete bare metal respray by Brewsters Motors in the traditional Ermine White you see today, paying close attention to detail with the door handles and headlamp surrounds being re-chromed and the fitting of 'new old stock' front quarter bumpers.
The interior was fully revived with new carpets, new door cards, new headlining, new windscreen, a Springalex steering wheel, immaculate period Contour bucket seats and a re-trim to the original rear seats to match the pristine fronts. The owner even managed to find two new rear ashtrays to complete the finishing touches.
The engine had an unleaded head conversion and was fitted with Elan Sprint inlet valves and FIA-spec exhaust valves. The now fully-lightened and balanced engine was rebuilt by Mountune and features +40 QED cast pistons, ARP bolts, Piper L14 camshafts and a full Janspeed exhaust system.
Covering just over 600 miles since the renovation, this car comes complete with a lovely invoice file detailing all components of the restoration including a large digital photograph file with over 170 photos.
