Mechanically HOO 476H has the robust 1.8-litre B-Series Gold seal engine that sits underneath the aluminium bonnet that has now completed 64,466 miles. The engine has recently had a Newman road cam installed along with new big end bearings and oil pump whilst it was apart. Also fitted are the superior (and expensive) ARP head studs. The all-important Overdrive is present and active on 3rd and 4th gears.
Although repainted some time ago, HOO 476H presents beautifully and is enhanced by stunning brightwork, a show standard engine bay and a lovely interior that is finished off with a wooden steering wheel.
You will also notice that a tow bar is present that has been used for towing an un-braked garden trailer on occasions.
On the road this GT is fantastic fun with a strong fit, healthy engine holding 50 psi at tick over and 70 psi at 3000 RPM, a lovely smooth gearbox with working overdrive and handling and braking to match.
HOO 476H has been owned for the last three years by a classic car enthusiast that had great fun fettling and driving this car and presented annually at a number of Car Shows and Motor Club events.
HOO 476H is showing some minor paint imperfections in places, but is a mechanically strong car that drives extremely well and would be a perfect weekend classic.
