Additional Information

Below: Another F English MK1 XR2 with full decal livery announced in the sales brochure from F. English in Spring 1983. All XR2 cars were built by F. English

Below: This XR2 Fly is one of three owned by the same person. He bought it from someone who had half rebuilt the engine and fitted the odd new part here and there. The previous owner then decided he didn't have the space for it anymore and decided to sell it, but apparently didn't try very hard and was going to scrap it until the present owner stepped in and saved it. The engine runs well and the bodyshell is in reasonably good condition but the new owner isn't sure what to do with it yet as he reckons he has no real need for it.

Below: This car was listed on Ebay by its owner in September 2005 and sold to a lady called Lisa from the Manchester area.
