F2046 - SOLD IN JULY 2006

Here at the Register we were a little alarmed when F2046 appeared on eBay with perhaps the briefest of descriptions. The listing merely stated:

"Please ring the owner direct for more info on XXXXXXXXX. Long MOT on this 2 litre 16 valve kit car based on the Dolomite Sprint engine. Grey leather interior, nice tidy car and very quick."

Thankfully, the sale was accompanied by a generous raft of photographs that did much to demonstrate that F2046 was, in fact, one of the best Latham F2s ever built.

Originally constructed by Martin Highfield, the car had subsequently gone (very rapidly!) through a string of new owners before appearing on eBay, but the quality and attention to detail inherent in Martin's original build was still there for all to see, despite signs of age and the many thousands of miles that the car had covered since its construction.

Martin was prepared to spend many hours on small details during the early stages, and this is no better displayed than by the hand-forged polished aluminum surrounds he made for the headlights. These gave the car a look that was even more Jaguar-esque, but also in some ways, more finished.

Martin also devoted much, time, effort and expense on the interior, which has a full leather interior and wood-veneer dashboard.

It was - still is - a lovely car, and there was much relief all round when F2046 was withdrawn from sale on eBay and the owner decided to keep it after all.
