Description

The Panther Westwinds Lima was a fun two-seat Roadster based on Vauxhall Magnum mechanicals. The sale car is one of the rare Dealer Team Vauxhall (DTV) versions, whose 2.3-litre engine therefore benefits from a big-valve cylinder head fed by a pair of twin-choke Dellorto carburettors, high lift camshaft and four-branch exhaust manifold. The related transmission is a five rather than four-speed manual unit. The model is quick, with a 0-60mph time nearer 6 than 7 seconds. 'LCX 430T' is an extremely smart example finished in Red over Silver complemented by Black interior trim. The car was completely refurbished in 1999 and has covered a mere 3000 miles since, and is now offered complete with a fresh service, new clutch and reclining seats (the old ones are available), colour-co-ordinated inertia reel seat belts, air horns, push button start and battery isolation switch, all receipts and old MOTs, plus one valid to September 18, 2018.
