F2049 - SOLD IN APRIL 2005

No enlargement availableNo sooner had F2048 sold on eBay, than F2049 appeared.

The car had never actually been finished, but was not far short of completion, and the photographs accompanying the auction demonstrated the quality and advanced stage of build.

The auction text was in an abbreviated note form, which we have expanded here to make it more readable . . . .

Click to view enlargement"This is a Latham F2 Super Sports, with 2.0 litre 16 valve Sprint engine, and offered as an unfinished project. The engine has been fully reconditioned, as has the clutch and brakes, and is mated to a four speed manual gearbox with overdrive."

No enlargement available"The interior includes second-hand MG BGT seats and four-point harness. The car is on Alley Cat alloys and new tyres. A brand new MG BGT windscreen is fitted. The Latham boasts very large boot space. Spitfire window winder mechanisms included, but not fitted."

No enlargement available"99% of the electrics have been installed and are working, and this will be a beautiful motor when finished! It should only require a minimal amount of work to have the car on the road, or if you have a damaged Latham this is all you need to get yours back on the road for the summer."

"No v5 registration, so an SVA is required before the project can be completed. Needs front shocks/springs, exhaust, radiator fan, minor electrical tinkering, paint and trimming."

The initial auction did not reach its reserve, and the seller then brought that down for the relisting, and in early April 2005, the car sold for a mere £500.

Work on F2049 progressed well following this sale, and the new owner embarked on an ambitious programme that saw the car tested and on the road (for the first time) in 2008.

As well as completing work under the bonnet, the car's grey gel-coat was finally covered by a fabulous coat of purple paint. There'll be no mistaking this car now that it has finally hit the streets!
