Ebay item 12/5/18
Current bid: $45,100 reserve not met 4 bids 6 days left in auction, seller bristolcollector, 73k miles.
A beautiful and recently restored 2+2 with fresh paint, new interior and original re-built, numbers matching 4.2 liter 6 cylinder, including new pistons, rings and all new seals, gaskets and fittings. The 3 speed automatic transmission was of great concern since past experience left performance wanting. However the expertise of the shop and their contacts combined with new technology and methods has produced a most satisfying result. The Borg Warner model 8 transmission’s faults have been overcome, resulting in a most satisfying driving experience.
The third member, or differential, complete with its cradle, suspension, half shafts, springs and shocks has received the same treatment, which includes the replacement of all bearings, bushings and seals and special attention to pinion alignment. All of the brakes have been completely restored with new lines, pads and fittings and a new servo unit.
Complete and new wiring harnesses were installed front to back as well as all new rubber gaskets, seals, belts and hoses. The air conditioner, heater and their accompanying fittings and controls received the same treatment and both perform as new. The original radiator was removed, disassembled, rebuilt and re-finished then re-installed along with a new water pump. The new all leather interior, which was purchased over 15 years ago, sealed and stored since, was expertly installed along with new padding and sound deadening mats.
Following the mechanical and cosmetic restoration a new front to back stainless exhaust system was installed complete with all new fittings, hangars and gaskets. All this was followed with all new chrome wire wheels, liners, tubes and tires.
The final product is quite striking and receives amazing compliments whenever exhibited. Approximately 150 miles have been added during the shakedown and de-bugging process and it can be said that Sir Lyons choice of an identical car in 1968 was probably based on his and Malcom Sayer’s thorough knowledge of the driving qualities and design acceptance of a willow green 2+2.
The new owner should be equally rewarded.
