Fairthorpe Electron Minor Historic sports special HSCC

Le Mans Sale


1 Owner and correctly registered on V5, Chassis number 11193 1st registered 18/03/1961 as UNJ203 (which it still wears). The work of one man's passion over 40+ years, 1998cc Triumph Dolomite Sprint 16v engine (twin Su's), Gt6 gearbox (with on 2nd,3rd,4th) & Mk2 Escort LSD rear axle. Making for a rapid Historic sports special that has been a very competitive car & has been thoughtfully developed over a long period of ownership. I would estimate less than 700Kgs with more than 125Bhp so "fairly lively" even by modern standards. Between Dec 1967 -Jul 2015 it competed in 100 events including 57 Autotests, 2 Autocrosses, 6 Hill Climbs, 33 Sprints & 2 Autosolo's, racking up an impressive tally of 8 FTD's, 36 1st's, 17 2nd's & 14 3rd's (65 Podiums!). Extensively restored & rebuilt between 2008-2011. When given a slightly more road focus including a custom made hood, ducted/ electric fan cooled custom radiator, high back sports seats, and inertia belts. 2 Autosolo events were completed after this rebuild resulting in a 1st & an FTD at Gaydon 2014 & 2015 proving the Fairthorpe was still competitive. A real labour of love, retains a desirable patina of use, age & competition but is mechanically perfect and well resolved. Very clean chassis, suspension & under bonnet etc with items powder coated or painted to a high standard. strong brakes (discs/drums with separate M/c's)  and smooth quiet gearbox, O/drive and axle. Minimal mileage since restoration and was MOT'd annually up to March 19 even though not required as it has "Historic" DVLA status. I am rurally located with large inside/outside viewing space so viewings are not a problem with suitable notice. Complete with all documents, a lovely accurate written history. dvd of photos, supporting paperwork etc. It would not take much at all to return the Fairthorpe to circuit duties making a very cost effective & unique Historic racer with a proven competition history. I also have a pair or original Italian Weber twin 40 DCOE9 carbs and inlet manifold for the car in excellent condition that were used when it was in full race spec and these are avaliable for a sensible extra amount.
