Another Interceptor ready for the road again

After an engine bay tidy up and some recommissioning work this Interceptor is ready to be enjoyed again. Having been sat neglected since 2015 the car has been checked over and given a comprehensive mechanical and electrical overhaul.

The car is now running cool with uprated fans and a soft start controller whilst the fitment of a full Fenair a/c system with a Sanden compressor will keep the cabin cool too, the addition of a Mitsubishi alternator will provide ample power for these upgrades.

The car has been test driven and minor adjustments made and is now ready to be collected.

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.
