A microcar from the 'golden age of motorsport' which languished in a barn for 50 years has been painstakingly restored.<br />
<br />
The 1959 Berkeley B95 Roadster was one of only 178 produced and a sister model was raced by Stirling Moss.<br />
<br />
This example competed in events in the 1960s before being stashed away at an unknown British site at the end of that decade.<br />
<br />
The vehicle was rediscovered in 2014 and the previous owner started off the project to bring it back to its former glory.<br />
<br />
They sold it to another fanatic in 2021 who completed the job and the car is now up for sale at Ashley Automotive, of Bournemouth, Dorset, for £14,990.
