This is a very special car, it was the 2nd V6 conversion ever started, but more importantly it was the 1st that was actually legally driven & registered on the road in the UK. I take no glory in the building as it t was built by a qualified Aeronautical Engineer to a very high standard there is a 45 page build manual over on twobrutal if you want to see it's history. It started life as a standard MK1 which had been very well looked after which had only 3 previous owners, with under 60K miles. The car was completed, driven for a while but on the way back from JAE in 2008 (I think) there was an issue with the differential which locked up & effectively acted like a welded diff. The car was put into the garage & left until last year when I bought it from the builder, the gearbox was replaced with a low mileage turbo box with LSD, it was my intention to keep the car as we were moving to a bungalow which had storage space & garages, but that has all fallen through & I now have nowhere to keep it.

It really is in very good condition there is just starting to show a small amount of rust on the nearside arch but it is still very solid & I was quoted 100 to put it right.

It appears I have rustled somebodies feathers by claiming it was the first V6 road legal, let me clarify this is the first road legal MK1 although as I'm selling a MK1 I expected that was a given, clearly not!
