This car is 99% finished but i have run out of time and need the cash injection.Requires a little bit of wiring , speedo cable , drivers window .Does drive and run , Engine running sweet .
Note :Before i get a 1000 questions ...You could not build this car to this standard for the asking price .Is it engineered ... No it will require engineering in which ever state it ends up in but has been built to a high standard that should fly through engineering and is still a 2.0 l engine and things like windscreen demister have been installed .What will it take to finish .. i estimate 5k with engineering and few parts .No i wont swap or take trades .I have a queue of people wanting to buy this engine but i would prefer to sell as is to someone that appreciates the package
I know what this car is worth , please don't waste my time or yours .Car is advertised elsewhere .Worldwide container delivery is available
