The gearbox was taken from the Ford Corsair 2000E. Weber carburettor, uprated brakes, electric cooling fan, differential, dampers, additional fuel tank and exhaust where all modifications together with dashboard, alloy wheels and badges made for this unique motor vehicle.
This vehicle has been totally rebuilt utilising new original body panels, engine fully rebuilt as are the gearbox and differential. The interior re-trimmed to the exact factory specification, headling, door cards, carpets, dashboard custom Savage with new instruments and wiring loom. New glass and light fittings, chrome, period Dunlop alloy wheels fitted with radial tyres. Vehicle finished off with Ford and Savage V6 decals.
A remarkable vehicle finished in Blue Mink Metallic being the correct period Ford factory colour with black vinyl covering to seats and wooden door capping and dashboard.
