This S2000 has recently arrived with ourselves
It had a dent in the drivers front wing
I simply cannot understand some insurances companies as this car was categorised a Cat N purely due to a dented wing as per last pic .

We have replaced the wing and painted the front and bumper and wing and the car is lovely ..

This S2000 has just 60000 miles from new
3 owners
Perfect hood .
Available at £12995 so great value for a facelift s2000

This MGC arrived with us late last year

It has had so much love and attention from its previous owner for many years and indeed he spent considerable sums on it ..

The vehicle has a huge history file .

We have just had the whole car repainted and it looks very smart indeed .

All wheels have just been fully refurbished .

It has a removable soft top / frame / tonneu cover

A host of upgrades which include ..
Were carried out by the previous owner ..
The below description is from when we purchased

Now recommissioned and wonderful
We note the Heuer clocks sell alone at c £1500 each !!

Engine overhauled and uprated with an alloy cylinder head, Kent camshaft, Maniflow exhaust system and machined flywheel etc
Quaife limited slip differential, parabolic rear springs, polyurethane bushes, stainless steel exhaust

‘KJH 10G’ was extensively restored and upgraded over twelve years. As well as chassis / sill work, the MG was treated to a new radiator, gearlever-mounted competition overdrive switch, stainless steel fuel tank, Quaife limited slip differential, rejuvenated suspension (Bilstein dampers, parabolic rear springs, sundry polyurethane bushes) and a set of Heuer clocks. The engine was overhauled too gaining an alloy cylinder head, Kent camshaft, Maniflow stainless exhaust system, Dural sump and machined flywheel etc. Finished in Green with what may well be its original Black leather upholstery, the Roadster was last on the road during 2018

This stunning Rolls is almost finished

Gone off today for its hood to be fitted

A 1968 model albeit plate changed it started life as a F reg and was changes to a H for the eagle eyed
It has been on that Reg so long appears logical to leave as is rather than get it back on its original

We have really gone to town on this

As anyone who has followed it knows it was Sir Michael Caines first Rolls then it was owned by a London club owner called Jack Leach just 2 owners very low miles ..

It will come back have its pinstripe and final finishing .

Then for sale ..
