Panther Lima 2
First registered August 1980
I bought the car in 2013 - it was taxed & tested at the time so I was able to road-test it before buying.
It drove well with a few minor issues - knocking exhaust and some electrical faults on the lights.
I bought it as it had had a lot spent on it including welding to the chassis, repairs to front accident damage and a new hood.
The car was transported back to my workshop as it was not road-legal by the time I arranged to collect it.
Inspecting the car on a lift for the first time I found that the welding was of a poor standard - sound but not pretty!
The interior of the car needs re-trimming and the veneer dash needs renovating.
The seats need replacing, ideally.
I serviced & tuned the engine in 2013 and have driven the car round my yard a few times.
I have had door-cards made for it (not yet fitted) and a rear wheel cover.
The car has been kept in a dry workshop since buying it.
The car needs more time spending on it than I have available so it ought to go to a caring home for completion. I have just spent 4 years doing a full restoration of another Lima and don't want to do another one just yet!
£5600 with the number plate - offers considered with or without the plate.
