Hawk 289 for sale

Post by simonjrwinter » Wed May 08, 2019 3:41 pm

Recently IVA’d and correctly registered as a Hawk 289 Roadster (April 2019), on an age related registration, I have put a "D" reg 1966 registration on the car. It was originally my intention to keep the car for the summer to enjoy it but sadly due to my financial circumstances, (and the fact that I've bought a Hawk FIA and can't justify keeping both!) I am selling the car with just under 200 miles from new on the clock.
The car is fitted with a reconditioned fully independent Jaguar rear axle with inboard rear brakes (a removable panel is fitted at the rear of the cabin to enable servicing/bleeding of the calipers)
At the front in place of the usual MGB wishbones and lever arm dampers, the upgraded Hawk/Hoyle tubular suspension has been fitted complete with coilover dampers. The front brakes have also been upgraded and are Willwood four pot calipers.
The engine is a fully rebuilt Rover 3.5 V8 engine with a reconditioned LT77 5 speed gearbox. The engine is fitted with a remote oil filter, an Edelbrock intake manifold, electronic ignition and a Holley carburettor. Underslung stainless exhausts are fitted which give a lovely growl without being overly loud
Apart from the engine/ gearbox and rear axle which were all fully reconditioned, all parts used in the build were new.
The car has been fitted with Smiths instruments. A pair of black "Cobra" seats, a heater, moto lita wood rimmed wheel and the ubiquitous VW indicator stalk. the car has an immobiliser fitted.
The car has chromed knock on wire wheels and a Tonneau and while there is no hood (these are available from Gerry) the ferrules for the hood bows are already fitted.
The car comes with a large folder of receipts for the parts used in the build along with the IVA and Registration paperwork. there is also a Hawk build manual.
I have plenty of photographs should you require. Please contact me with and questions or if you would like to see the car. It’s on eBay at the moment. But if anyone’s looking for a 289, I’m looking for £39995.
Drop me a PM if you’d like a look.

Hi Simon
lovely looking car I shouldn't think you will have any trouble selling that for at least the figure you have mentioned.

Where did you get your leather seats from as I am in the market for an upgrade.

kind regards
Stuart

Hi Stuart,

They are “roadster SS” seats from Cobra seats in Telford.

Simon,
Very nicely finished car.
Shame you can’t afford to keep it till the FIA is built.
I do think you ought to expect a tad more than £37k for freshly built car without any miles on the clock.
