Description

Originally built in 1972 by Lynx especially for Rodger Ludgate, one of the companies founders.  The car remained in Rodger’s possession until 2012 when it was bought by it’s second owner.

At this point, it was sent for a full nut & bolt restoration at Tester Engineering (TE) in Daventry.  The work carried out by  TE was extensive and covered every aspect of the car, to include; a fully Chassis strip and refurbish, a complete Engine rebuild to an upgraded standard, a new aluminium Bonnet, newly cast Wheels, new trim throughout and a complete overhaul of the Gearbox and back axle.

The car now resides in a fabulous collection with it’s 3rd owner.

An unrepeatable opportunity.
