For Sale: 1962 Triumph TR4
Posted: November 21, 2023
This Triumph TR4 was purchased new in British Columbia in 1961 and driven for a number of years before being stored. The restoration was started about 2021. The mechanicals, engine, and running gear work was completed by RWM & Co at Boundary Bay Airport. The car then went to Victoria where the body was fully restored. This is a rust and filler-free car. There are hundreds of pictures detailing the work done. This private body shop has restored multiple cars for us in the past and all have won many awards at car shows.
The car currently has steel wheels on it, but it has the splines to convert it to wire wheels. Most of the parts to complete the car are included. It will need final metal finishing and fitting, including a wiring harness, paint, new tires, convertible top and assembly. There are two roll bars for the car. It would make a very successful vintage racer. The most difficult part of this restoration project has been completed. It even comes with the original TR4 Owner’s Manual!
Due to the original owner’s ongoing health issues, we are not able to finish this project, much as we would like to. The asking price is considerably less than what has been invested to date.

For Sale: 1967 Mk2 Cortina Lotus Twin Cam Street Legal Vintage Racer
Updated: October 31, 2023
The Mk2 Cortina Lotus was not only more reliable than the original classic but troublesome Mk1, but it was also available in left hand drive and had a more powerful engine. This meticulously maintained Mk2 example was first raced by its current owner in July 1992 at Seattle International Raceway (now Pacific Raceways). Its racing history includes 94(!) vintage events at tracks such as, Seattle, Portland International Raceway (PIR), Bremerton, Spokane, Reno, Thunderhill, Sears Point (Sonoma), Laguna Seca, Buttonwillow, Lime Rock, Watkins Glen, Road America/Elkhart Lake, and of course Mission (shown above), where it has been a regular performer the last few seasons.
The powertrain features all steel crankshaft and twin camshafts, a stainless steel exhaust system, a pre-start engine oiling system and low oil pressure warning light, a switch for operating the cooling fan with the engine off, a four-speed Quaife close-ratio transmission and a limited slip differential. The body has a full interior that has been supplemented for racing with a roll bar, a racing seat, a five-point safety harness, a fuel cell (race gas only), a Halon fire suppression system, plus period-correct Smith speedometer and tach.
The most recent performance tuning was done in late 2020. Although this Cortina Lotus is a very competitive Vintage racing car, it is also fully street-legal and registered.
Price on application. Serious enquiries only please.

For Sale: 1959 Austin Healey 100-6 Vintage Racing Car
Posted: April 22, 2023
This 1959 Austin Healey is possibly the most continually active and recognized Big Healey vintage racing car in the United States! For many enthusiasts, the 100-6 is the most desirable of all of the Big Healeys; having all of the benefits of six cylinders over the four of the original 100-4, but none of ‘the fancy stuff’ added to the later 3000 series cars.
This classic has had a lot of of race preparation, including a custom engineered cooling system, J.E. Pistons, a DMD aluminum block and DMD aluminium head, triple Weber 45’s, MSD ignition system, Fuel Safe fuel cell and Holley fuel pump. More photos and information are available on the seller’s website (here). The car is located in Iowa.

Updated: July 1, 2021 This 1991 Ford Taurus SHO is a great example of the original classic; a real enthusiast’s car. It is powered by the excellent Yamaha DOHC 24 valve, V6 producing 220 hp and backed up by a five speed gearbox. The SHO delivered 143 mph/ 230 kph out of the box together with great gas mileage. This example is fairly close to clean “survivor” condition, It has approximately $10,000 in performance upgrades including urethane suspension components, Koni shocks, stainless header and exhaust, and the Wilwood “SHOstopper” brake conversion.
Included with the car are most of the original parts, receipts and spares, including extra Wilwood brake calipers, extra SHO body parts, Ford factory manual and more. The front engine seal leaks a bit but a new seal and a new timing belt are included.
