1962 Turner Mk2 SOLD Dec 2004
Road legal this 1962 Turner Mk2 has run in the 750 Motor Club and is eligible for the Classic Sports Car Club "Swinging Sixties" Championship, the Julius Thurgood Top "Cloth Cap", "Best of British" and "Spirit of Sebring" races. To qualify for HSCC racing the front spoiler/airdam and the lip on the bonnet vent would have to be removed though this is comparatively straight forward.
It is fitted with a "Competition Engines" 1500cc Ford Pre-Crossflow engine and the dyno sheets show 140bhp. The engine has been moved back in the chassis for better weight distribution but the original position could be restored. The gearbox is a rebuilt Ford 2000E and the axle has strengthened shafts and a Quaife 3.9 LSD.
The brakes have vented discs and Wilwood alloy calipers, the front suspension is up-rated and strengthened, there is a good fire extinguisher and a Corbeau seat, Aeroquip brake hoses and silicone cooling pipes. The original side screens, hood and seats come with the car. The car is available without the engine or alternatively with additional high specification engine spares. There is a current MOT.
VUD 515 is a "works" style registration and is the original number on a current V5 document showing the engine as 997cc. This should be amended when ownership changes.
A stunning car that is road legal but ready to race!
