With the pace picking up on the new project I really need this out of my way, I am therefore listing it for sale for one final time before it goes into storage.

I have amended the description, removing some of the parts that were previously included so as to reduce the base price and offer a massive price reduction. Please note that this base price is non-negotiable however I am more than happy to discuss prices if you are also looking to buy any of the other body panels or running gear I also have available separately for this car.

I was building this car for no other purpose than the enjoyment of doing so and it had always been my intention to sell the car on when it was completed. The rebuild of the car and its history in my ownership is well documented in my rebuild thread (see link below), so it's only for me to describe further what will be included in this sale.

http://forum.wscc.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic/88905-smokey’s-narrow-rebuild/?p=893554

The chassis is a 1990 SE Live axle Narrow body. It is not road registered, and to the best of my knowledge has spent its whole life as a track and race car. It was my intention to rebuild the car as a cheap track-day toy. I bought her in 2011 from the previous owner who was breaking her following an on-track accident. The damage was limited to the front of the chassis and engine bay tubes, which also because of previous modifications were cut out by me and replaced with new. All the photos of this work are available in my build blog.

The chassis comes with all the necessary major parts with the exception of a few nuts and bolts to complete this to a rolling chassis stage. The front wishbones have been fitted only for the photographs but have been removed again for ease of storage. The nuts for the front suspension ball joints are missing and I also don't have any steering track rod ends.

Also included in the sale will be copies of all purchase invoices, receipts, and build photographs which would be required should you decided to IVA the car.

Chassis

Transmission tunnel has been widened from 9" to 12" to accommodate an Mx5 gearbox.

He'll see it soon...

James is looking for a £5k-£7k car and with a bit of work this could be what he wants!

Cherry, you beat me to it. 

 

Mark, that must have been a tough call as that is a lovely looking chassis.  I will speak to my mate Steve (who needs to build a garage) and see if he is interested. 

 

What a cracking opportunity of a great chassis well sorted already. 

 

Cheers

Just pm'd you James, but error msg came up, you can't receive new pm's! Probably need to delete some.

Engine/gearbox £500

Cycle wings, bonnet, nose cone £300

Dash/dials £250

Rough guesses for used stuff from here and eBay. Be a bit of work and a decent project for someone on a budget! I'm tempted to buy it and transfer what I can from my wide boy, but think I'm best just leaving it!

BTTT with a Pre-Stoneleigh price reduction to £1750 :cool:

 

I'm happy to incude as few or as many parts as needed to tailor a package that suits individual requirements, the price therefore is negotiable up or down on that basis :)
