Lima for Sale
Panther Lima Mark 1. (chassis number 4260)
RHY 944S was manufactured in October 1977, and was ordered on 12th. November 1977 for the sum of £5513.00.
First registered on 11th January 1978, and was owned by the same owner for the next 32 years before selling to us in 2010.
Unfortunately the car saw no use during the last few years of his ownership, and having deteriorated badly was sold to us as a project. The car was restored over a number of years with majority of the work carried out be ANMAT of Bedford.
The car was stripped to the bare chassis for the rusty sections to be removed, the chassis sand blasted, repaired and strengthened.
Engine: The original engine was stripped, the head was skimmed and fitted with hardened valves (takes unleaded petrol). New main bearings fitted, and a pair of twin SU’s replace the original carburettor.
Transmission : A Ford 5 speed gearbox has been fitted and the prop shaft balanced with new uj’s.
Suspension: Spax adjustable shock absorbers fitted all round together with new front springs.
Cooling System: Radiator has been re-cored, Kenlow fan and silicone hoses installed.
Electrics: New lighting all round with Chrome headlamps.
Interior: Seats recovered, new carpets made and fitted by RS Sewing and new seat belts fitted.
Exterior: Re-sprayed in BMW metallic British Racing Green and new hood and tonneau covers made and fitted by RS Sewing. New bumpers acquired, and re chromed.
This is not an exhaustive list of the work done, but covers all of the key elements.
Less than 1000 miles have been driven since re-build .
Agreed insurance value is £12000, but the car would benefit from the wings re-spraying a some time, so is available at a fraction of the restoration cost at £10,500.
