In 2006 I paid for an extensive professional restoration and conversion costing £7000, it had a new floor pan, complete new interior (Recarro type front seats) all finished in black leatherette, wider wings, new mohair hood, clear lights, Porsche cups, uprated suspension, new exhaust system complete re spray from black to Ferrari Red (the photos don’t do the colour justice), colour coded bumpers, clear lights, vented disc brakes....the list goes on.

It is a stunning vehicle and turns heads everywhere it goes (it even got its photo in Volkszone after being spotted at the Chester Deva Dubs show the same year it was finished) It would be great for promotional work and has been used for a couple of weddings in the past.

Since the conversion it has hardly been used as I have emigrated to Spain and it has sat in my Dads garage ever since.

When the car was finished i was told to insure it for £10 000

It is a left hand drive

The car is in the Wirral, North West

The car is now Mot'd it needed a new wheel nut, a replacement horn and a windscreen washer hose
