    MSA log booked in 2011 but barely used (492 miles as I write this) due to changes in personal circumstances. First registered with DVLA in 1977 and Mot'd to June 20th (New 12 month MOT will be included in sale). The car was built from a bare metal shell with 90% new components in 2011. Build cost was in the order of £25K plus approximately 3000hrs labour. Unused and dry stored - this car is close to immaculate as you would expect. 
    Photos and Technical description as follows (please look for subfolders): 
    The engine is a dry sumped Honda F20C engine on original management which gives ultra smooth and reliable power to 9000rpm rev limit with plenty of room for improvement should you so wish. Current set-up showed 220bhp at Atspeed rolling road (Aug 2013). Oil system is Titan pump, Mocal cooler / thermostat / filter, stainless braided hoses throughout, and Moroso 3 gallon swirl tank in boot with external breather. Fuel system has a Grp4 Fabrications 11 gallon foam filled fuel injection tank, with Bosch 044 pump, Turbosmarts FPR800 regulator, twin filters, and stainless hoses throughout. Exhaust is ultra quiet over axle 2/12" stainless twin box system from Clampco. Cooling is Aluminium Grp4 Fabrications Radiator, with bespoke alloy expansion tank, and automatic + override close coupled 14" fan. 
    Gearbox is the F20C ph1 6 speed h pattern. (ph1 is the close ratio performance box.) A spare gearbox is available but not included in sale. Drives through a 3" slip joint prop shaft to a baby Atlas axle, with Fostek 1/2 floating shafts, asymmetric Gripper diff, 4.6 CWP, and thick wall tubing. Mounted with huge 1 1/4" rose jointed 4 link and watts linkage, and 2 1/4" coilovers in tall turrets braced back to roll cage. Floor pan modified to give clearance to diff and watts linkage for full rear suspension travel &/or lower ride height for tarmac usage. 
    Front suspension is upside-down Bilstein gusseted 2 1/4 coilovers mounted with adjustable TCA's in world cup x member, insitu adjustable compression struts, and rose jointed top mounts. Compression struts and top mounts reinforced back to roll cage. 
    Front brakes are Willwood Billet6 pot callipers, 285mm vented disks on alloy group 4 hubs. Rear brakes are Cosworth sliding callipers, and 273mm vented disks. Pedal box has twin master cylinder with dash mounted adjustable bias. Twin handbrakes include upright hydraulic handbrake and original cable unit coupled with Speedy Cables cables. 
    Wheels are 15 x 8 genuine rally spec Minilights from Peter Lloyd Rallying. Group 4 studs and nuts throughout and currently wearing nearly new Toyo Proxie 1 road tyres. There are only 4 included in sale plus 1 (admittedly nasty) 15x6 Peugeot rim modified to fit the group 4 studs as a spare for highway use. I can include 4 x used Toyo R888's in the sale price. (I'm conscious my tyre choice may seem strange to the reader - Last time out I was in the process of setting the car up to run as course opening car for a local road rally (just for something to do with it) so I set it up with road legal tyre kit and wooden boot box (included in sale if you want it) to carry the kit.) 
    Body was shot blast / bare metal rebuilt in 2011, with whatever parts it required, seam welded throughout, rust treated, and dry stored ever since. Some of the photos show pre-paint and demonstrate that it has no rot in it at all. The cage is a weld in multipoint and is fully braced to body and suspension everywhere. As you would expect it has been extensively modified to include large tunnel, tank mount, suspension points, exhaust tunnels, seat rails, sump guards, cill stand points etc etc. 
    Exterior includes forest arches, bib spoiler, plastic windows, steel bonnet and boot (I don't like clip on plastic parts - a personal taste), Hella H4 headlights & 4 x Cibe Super Oscars on quick release 3 way adjustable lamp steadies, Plastic quarter bumpers, working locks (with Honda immobiliser), cill stand points in cills etc. etc. etc. 
    Interior includes Corbeau Pro Series 2K seats which will be brand new and dated accordingly (current seats expire Oct 2015), out of date Luke 6 point harnesses (negotiable but I suggest you buy harnesses that you like), Alloy professional adjustable navigator foot rest, alloy door cards / quarter panels / rear bulkhead, original heater, OMP steering wheel, gauges are Smiths Telemetrix motorsport (with 12K rpm and 140mph Speedo) in original Ford cluster. Wiring is all new, and bespoke to suit, based around a 12 way fuse panel (in glove box) and redtop motorsport battery in boot. It has the mud flaps, horn, and kill switch fitted, I can provide a Terratrip intercom (that is wired but not fitted because I was holding out for a Peltor), and (if pressed) I can probably sort you out the triangle spill kit and SOS board to make this 100% good to go. Extinguishers are FEV 1.5L plumbed in (dated dec 2010) and 2.0L Commander handheld (dated 2010). 
    Viewing by arrangement only. The car is not stored at it's registered address and will not be viewed at it's storage address. All documentation (including my ID) is available for inspection with the vehicle.
