Bowler Tomcat 88 based Comp Safari racer - £10,000 ono
Road legal with V5, put on SORN 2017. Tax exempt (all MOTs 1996-2017) ARC logbook and tagged but will need renewing.
My ownership since 1996, I did 2 Comps in the late 1990s before deciding to upgrade and carry out all the modifications listed below. I took it off the road in 2017 to fit a 3.5 EFI genuine Land Rover exchange engine however I never had enough time to fully finish as moved on to other motorsport. Just a few easy jobs required to complete which Ive listed below. Mechanical and electrical systems have been meticulously maintained however the bonnet is not very pretty as panel work is not one of my strengths. There is an ex FFR soft-top which is waterproof and functional but it has seen better days. The door tops and glass are sound but drivers side requires a new bottom channel. Been garaged stored so no chassis corrosion.
