Sorry to say my pride and joy has to go for medical reasons.
First the bad points: No heater and hood will need reconditioning. That's it!
All good news from now on.
Lots of stuff done over the past few years:
Rewired. Carb professionally rebuilt and converted to manual choke.
Front suspension grommets and bushes replaced.
New radiator hoses.
Vacuum, ammeter and voltmeter installed.
New brake master cylinder, discs and callipers.
New rear pads and slave cylinders.
There are lots of routine spares including a spare steering column and a pair of Jaguar carbs.
Complete set of 15" wheels with new tyres, a set of 14" wheels with good tyres and a set of 14" alloys with old tyres.
New battery last year.
Chrome headlight rims, bonnet strips and bumpers all round.
Oil valve seals replaced last year.
It's a 2lt Pinto out of a 1972 Ford Cortina with it's accompanying 4 speed gear box.
It's registered as an historic vehicle so no road tax to pay.
The hood is tatty but the frame is good and really only needs recovering. I took it off to recover it but have not done so yet.
The "wire wheels" in the photo are simply plastic hub caps on 15" wheels, but they do look quite smart. I think the bigger wheel suits the car's longer body, but that is only a matter of opinion.
It's basically sound and would make a good base for some interesting upgrades like the Datsun engine etc..
The car now has a new MoT and new front calipers and hoses. Also, it has inertia reel seat
belts which are a great advantage.
I also have a Datsun ZX 260 engine in need of a re-build and 5 speed manual Datsun box that I was going to fit but didn't. This box seems to be in good condition.
These are also available if the buyer was interested.

I bought the car 2 years ago to replace my MX5 which I sold. I am approaching 60 and no longer have enough time or opportunity the car, the oft inclement weather in the UK, and the time I spend abroad during the summer months. I have therefore thinking more and more about selling it on to another enthusiast who could make better use of it.
About The Car.
I bought it from a chap in Bodmin, Cornwall in June 2010. The car came with a fairly comprehensive manual with details of the build/some pictures and receipts etc - and is based on a single donor car, a Cortina 2 litre (Pinto) registration EAL 364T. This was later changed (before I bought the car) for a black and silver number plate MLZ 3135 which it currently has.
It has wire wheels and new tyres with less than 2000 miles on them and all the fuel lines have been replaced, brake hoses re-aligned, various suspension bushes replaced, the exhaust system-fitted properly, and various other minor issues were corrected, and a new battery. It passed the Mot on July 6th 2010. Last year passed the MOT no problem, and this ran out on 5th July 2012.
I replaced the faux-leather (plastic) dash/fascia with a hand-made wood-panel one last year. A couple of the gauges are still playing up, but this only small attention to the wiring (which is not my forte!)- They all worked before. The mileage on the original engine is now just over 90k, and although the engine does smoke a little bit at-start up and when hot, it does not burn any significant volumes of oil. The front nearside bumper is in poor condition and would benefit from-chroming (or even replacing), and the rear bumpers which I have and are in a good condition, area series 1.5 E Type - these have not been fitted to the car as they require cutting to shape, which I do not have the facilities to do. The car is not perfect, but it has been great fun.

is a list of accessories
Headlights off warning. This
tells you if you drive out of a garage at night without your headlights on or
at dusk forgetting to put them on. We have all seen the 'If I can see you, you
can see me' driver with no lights on, operated by a sensor in the headlight
Spotlights on when entering
an unlit area. Particular handy when entering dark car parks or when the light
falls beneath a certain leve, such as in the shadow of a lorry. Oncoming will
be able to see you with the side spots lights on. Operated by small sensor unit
Spots mounted in redundant flasher pods when E type or MGB side and flasher
units fitted with chrome bumpers. Also a flashing LED on dash to tell when they
have been activated.
Bonnet lights for working on
the ignition system at night, operated by unlatching the bonnet or by manual
Remote starter plug. Handy to
start the car without having to walk round and turn off at the key.
Emergency cut off. Handy if
you want to stop the engine without having to walk round to the key.
High mounted hazard lights in
the bonnet. Warns traffic behind you with high flashers. Mounted high in the
bonnet wheel arches.
Power points in the engine bay.
Two terminal, positive and negative that you can put leads into and get a direct
power supply without turning on the ignition. Great for troubleshooting.
Light beside the battery terminals.
Great for seeing where you are putting the battery charging clips. (Mine is
hidden under the remote oil tank that acts as a sump). Manual switch
Spotlights mounted in the mouth
of the bonnet Four spots make up for the lumens lost through the glass of the
headlights. Operates with main beam and 'flash' switch on steering column.
High output main beam lights.
100W bulbs for main beam. Some authorities frown upon them but as you only use
them when no one is in front of you, I don't see a problem with these and if
I can see better then it's a safety feature.
Two small spotlights mounted
in the redundant winker pods works with the four spots and separately with the
darkness sensor. There seems a lot of lights, some six main beam lamps lighting
the way, but I feel that the better I can see ahead the safer I am.
Up-rated brakes. Austin Princess
four pot brakes. The better I can stop the more likely you are to get home in
Vented disks. This coupled with
the four pot brakes decreases the stopping distance required. It's better than
having a windscreen wiper on the inside of the car.
Wire wheels. MGB wheel with
Cortina tyre sizes to give a wider tyre on an MGB wheel. Fitted using adaptors
bolted to the original studs.
Chrome bumpers Not the cheapest
of improvements but the one I would say that I would say was the one to save
for as it changes the appearance of the car tremendously.
radiator fan. Only operates when the water temp rises above the required setting.
Gives better cooling performance.
Engine change. Engine is a BMW
2.7 injected engine, rebuilt on acquisition
Auto box. Having back truble
made me change from a manual to an auto. Can still use the box like a manual.
Tool boxes in the engine bay
side scuttle. A good place to put storage either for tools or wine bottles.
Alarm system Operated by key
switch set in bodywork.
Bonnet release warning. A warning
light shows when the bonnet has become unlatched.
Lockable glove box. Great for
storing tickets and lipsticks. Try to tell her tickets are more valuable than
lip stick. Why else has it got an integral vanity mirror.
Map lights. Expensive if you
can get them at a Kit Car Shoe stall but available from scrap yards at low cost.
They are the rear reading lights on the XJ6 type Jaguar and I believe Daimler.
I have one fitted on the driver's door and one on the glove box lid.
Electric windows. A must if
you travel abroad alone as leaning across the lower the passengers window can
be distressing if parts of you collide with the gear lever or handbrake trying
to reach the window winder on the passenger side. Also if you are trying to
leave a car park with a ticket booth on the passenger side it save getting out
of the car and tying up the traffic behind you.
Electric mirrors. Handy for
watching the girl walking down the passenger side of the car and when travelling
on the continent.
Electric door pumps. Save yourself
the trouble of bailing out the door when it fills with water by having windscreen
washer pumps in each door.
Interior lights. Fitted into
the upright sill under the dash and on the side of the centre console.
Centre console. Completely removable
which allows you to access under the dash. Mine contains the following Radio
with speakers mounted either side of the console and in the rear bulkhead of
Lights left on warning. Fog
and spot light switches. Dusk warning switch.
All gauges such as fuel temp
water temp etc.
Two interior courtesy lights
with independent switches.
Heater control On/off wire operated
lever control to main input.
Central transmission tunnel
storage compartments. Fitted between the two ash trays in front of the central
console, these contain the bonnet release catches, radio cassettes and two boxes
side by side for general storage.
Two heaters. One for the cockpit
and one for the windscreen.
Parcel shelf passenger side
with light. Suitable for European and UK maps, travel documents, tickets etc
Parcel shelf Small parcel shelf,
Foot rest Drivers side. Side
pockets. Solid pockets set on interior doors. Set into doors guarantees they
will get wet due to the water dropping down the windows into the door space.
These are large enough for hats, maps, papers etc Roll bar with high intensity
rear brake light mounted into the bar.
Draught excluder roller. Raised
to reduce back draught when driving.
Rear seat belts. Fitted to allow
kids to sit in the back. Only applicable to the Roadster 2+2. Also acts as straps
to retain luggage on the rear seats.
Boot light. Operated by rear
boot lid support arm and set into the false bulkhead in front of the fuel tank.
Extra boot storage Boot storage
increased by removing part of the interior side wall that form part of the wheel
arch Boot drains. Does away with the sponge to dry out the boot.
Storage Boxes. These storage
boxes with doors are located in the false bulkhead and run down the side of
the fuel tank. Handy for the jack and rubber/copper hammer to take off the wheel
spinners in one side and the small air compressor, spare inner tube and torch
in the other.
Warning triangle fitted into
inside of boot behind the rear number plate position.
Spare wheel cover. Cover fitted
to the false bulkhead in the boot.
Rear Light covers. Protects
the rear light wiring from damage.
