Car Details

DESCRIPTION:I am selling my sylva jester purely for the fact that i do not have the time to dedicate to this special little car. based on a mk1 ford fiesta, this example has a 1600cc kent crossflow ohc engine with weber carbs. this car is great fun to drive, especially in the summer with the roof off, bombing along country roads. i have owned this car for a couple of years and have spent a fair bit of money on her. she does still require some cosmetic work and so would be suited to someone who is able to do this themselves. over the time i have owned her, i have had the head gasket replaced, the steering rack, front wheel bearings, both driveshafts and all 5 tyres replaced (including the spare). i have also replaced both rear trailing arms on the rear suspension which unfortunately meant having to cut away some of the bodywork.i have not had a chance to repair the bodywork yet. the hood does have a couple of tears in it and these were present when i first bought the car. as a result, it is not particularly watertight at present and would benefit from the new owner having a new hood made. as a result of this, the interior carpet did get quite wet last winter so i removed it all with the intention of fitting non slip, rubber flooring. i have not yet fitted this but will include the roll of rubber flooring with the sale. i also have two new roadster 7 style bucket seats and sliders to install as the current seats are rather tatty. i will also include all of this in the sale.i have various other bits and pieces that i have bought for this amazing machine and again, i will happily include them with the sale. i have kept the car off the road for the past year as i was hoping to spend the time renovating her to her former glory but unfortunately circumstances changed and this has not been possible. as a result, she has no mot or road tax so the buyer would need to collect her with a trailer. it is with regret that i am selling this car but as i stated, circumstances mean i can no longer justify keeping her. she deserves someone who can devote plenty of time to her and that will get as much fun out of her as i have. i am looking for offers in he region of 1500 and can be contacted on 07946 143849
