This early production Frogeye was registered 3rd April 1959 and still retains its original registration number. It was partially restored in 2006 and fitted with a Shorrock C75B supercharger. The all steel body was repainted in the original colour of ‘Leaf Green’ and fitted with a hard top.

Having been laid up for a while the car was ‘barn stored’ before undergoing recommission work.

A full brake overhaul has been carried out as well as new brake master cylinder and clutch slave cylinder. The engine has also received a full service and is in fine running order, paperwork shows that it was rebuilt in 1997 but the mileage was not recorded. In 2003 it was showing as 92,031 and currently showing as 92,471.

It is supplied with a large history file that shows maintenance dating right back to the 1980’s as well as more recent work, lots of old MoT’s, the original buff logbook and the current UK V5C logbook. 

In very presentable condition the car would make a great Rally / Classic Event car and is already fitted with some timing clocks. The supercharger gives the motor a good boost and a raspy note through the sports exhaust. A truly fun little car with tenacious bark!
