Descrizione

Fairthorpe was a small car builder in Chalfont St Peter in Buckinghamshire, the UK. Fairthorpe started in the 50’s building small lightweight sports cars. These were either available as a kit or fully built. The engine came out of a Triumph or Coventry Climax. As engine space was at a premium, small engine size units were always used. This small brand did not have an easy ride and in 1973 after the production of the Electron Sports Special and various other small models the plug was eventually pulled. Our Fairthorpe started life as an Electron and in 1978 it was rebuilt replacing the 1,000 cc engine with the 1,296 cc Spitfire Mk III engine. Weight saving modification were carried out on the bodywork at the same time, making the car eminently suitable for Hill Climbing events. Sadly time constraints on the owner prevented him for entering competitions and after a few hundred miles the Electron Sport Special was garaged. 5 years later the owner decided to sell the car on. After having stood idle for a number of years a partial restoration was carried out a few years ago with particular attention to the clutch, complete brake system, all fluids and tyre replacement. This is a unique car delivering a great sensation of speed! Its low weight makes it very manoeuvrable and thanks to the aforementioned overhaul it is ready for use. Who fancies the challenge of a bit of Hill Climbing? THIS VEHICLE IS IN OUR STORAGE, VIEWING BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
