First registered in March 1974, this stunning green RS2000 was extensively restored by the previous owner who kept it from 2000 until 2012. The bodywork was restored and repainted and the engine reconditioned, including converting it to run on unleaded fuel in 2002. The rear axle was rebuilt in 2007, a Janspeed stainless steel exhaust fitted in 2009, and the suspension legs were sand-blasted and powder coated in 2011.
On completion the car was inspected by Rowley Automotive Assessors of Newquay in April 2012 who declared it to be “excellent, almost to concours standard” and that “no mechanical defects were noted.
Recently recommissioned, the car is said to remain in excellent condition throughout, flying through its MOT in April 2017 with no advisories recorded. The history file includes sundry invoices documenting the restoration process, various old MOTs back to 2002, a DVLA record of past owners back to 1991 and the aforementioned assessor’s report.
