1959 Rapier Series II, in good running order; original upholstery R75 000.00 ono. Contact Terry Cleland : Tel : 078 562 0933 (Posted 30 April 2017)


A genuine Series IIIA with the original 1592cc engine and engine number matching the Vin number. I have done the following to it: Fitted an electronic distributor, an original Rapier oil cooler (Ex Fastback Rapier), a new original mechanical petrol pump, an electronic switch operated petrol pump as back-up (for long distance driving reliability), a new roof lining. Had the windscreens removed and any rust or damaged sections under the windscreens repaired and resprayed. Had the roof resprayed. (This so that I can at a later stage have the bottom part redone without having to remove the windscreens.) Fitted new front and rear windscreen rubbers. Had new mats put in and the seats repaired and re upholstered. Repaired radiator. New brake pads. Balanced propshaft. At this time the car owes me R60,000. The Car runs very well and has recently done a trouble free trip to Knysna. The oil is still clear even after that long run for the Knysna show.
