1966 Britains Built Mk1

Post by bernardo »

Originally an 850 converted to 1000 in the 1980’s
Irish car, made in Dublin by Britains in 1966 , (plate in engine bay, shamrocks on glass) .
Has single clock dash, dipswitch on floor, sliding windows, hand pump screenwasher, hinged rear numberplate, heater tap under bonnet indicator light on end of stalk, magic wand gearbox. Hydrolastic suspension.

Two tone light grey leatherette interior with white piping. Light restoration 2003 including new bumpers, steering wheel, carpets and doorcards, nos britax magnetic seatbelts, heater matrix , fuel and water pumps, coil. Halogen headlight conversion (still have sealed beam units) and other period parts.
Car sits level and at correct height which suggests the hydrolastic units are ok.
I am the 4th owner I have the original brown cardboard logbook

Bad Points
Taken off the road in 2011 due to failed clutch slave cylinder.
Needs all the usual parts which need replacing after storage
1 wing and quarter panel are blistering, don’t know why painter used it, but filler cracked on one A panel. Subframe were sound when parked up. External hinge covers and seam covers blistered.

Car is in Donegal. Looking for €9000. Call Bernard on 087 2052983
