Brown Interceptor Collected

The Brown Interceptor was driven home today a journey of more than 200 miles, hopefully the first of many new adventures for this car.

Theres still lots to do with an SP nearing completion of a long list of jobs including an interior recolour and many mechanical and electrical jobs. The Mk1 Interceptor engine is now back together and ready to be run up on the test rig and a CV-8 has arrived for a recommission after suspected 20 years laid up.

We also have an FF in the final stages of paint and an SP nearing the end of a huge amount of welding which will be returning in the summer both requiring rebuilding. Along with a convertable arriving soon for a full restoration so theres no time to rest.

MK11 Interceptor engine bay painted

The MK11 we have had in the workshop has now had the new bodycolour in the engine bay and underneath the car.

It is now ready for collection by its owner who will be carrying on with the work but it will return as he was so impressed with the engine bay paintwork he would like it to come back for the bodywork to be painted at a later date.

MK2 Interceptor Arrives

A MK2 Interceptor has arrived and the present owner has had this car for 30 years. The owner usually likes to carry out work himself but has decided that he wants us to make a start on it as he is very busy.

We will clean and protect the underneath of the car and rebuild the steering and front suspension for him, then he will hopefully be able to carry on with the project himself. He already has a rebuilt engine and manual gearbox for the car and the rear end has been modified for independent rear suspension.

New Arrival & Updates

A nice 541 has arrived for a little recommissioning work. Meanwhile progress continues on all other projects.

The Brown MK111 Interceptor now has all the rusty metalwork replaced and is being prepped for paint.

FF133 now has a new rear n/s quarter, rear valances and sill covers fitted. I believe the old rear quarter was cut off about 20 years ago so its nice to see the metalwork nearly finished on this car.

FF029 is now running with the engine started for the first time in 30 years, and briefly moved under its own power. This car has had extensive mechanical work including fully rebuild steering and suspension, brakes and fuel system including S/S fuel tank, new pipework and carb. The old radiator has been replaced with a new aluminium radiator powder coated Black to keep the car looking original and a new engine bay wiring loom. Along with lots of other small jobs this car will be mechanically sound for years to come.
