V12 eType Roadster show winning restoration

Here we have a Series III V12 eType Roadster which is going through a full bare metal, nut and bolt restoration. This vehicle will be prepared to concourse winning standards with plenty of upgrades along the way. We also have a timeline for the project as we intend to finish the re-build work on the live stage of the Classic Car Show in the NEC Birmingam later this year (November 2019). Between now and then there is lots to be done and we will be updating this page very regularly as we go through each stage of the project.

If you have any restoration work needed on your classic vehicle then why not give us a call on 01543 422 625 and see what we could do for you.

We are starting off with the engine which has been sat only part assembled for years so it needs to be completely stripped down, soda blaster and refinished to show standards before reassembly can take place. we are also going to add fuel injection to this V12 engine which was not available on the original, also with all new wiring, plugs, hoses and valves meaning this will run like a brand new vehicle when we are finished.
