    Hi all!

    Bought this when I was 18. Had big plans (hybrid v8, rangie running gear etc) that never came to fruition. Its at my parents house and I need to get my bits all sorted.

    It's a 'put back together again' project.

    Original chassis is very strong and requires no welding (has been repaired in t he past). Rear xmember will last for another four or five years, but will need replacement ecevtually.

    Bulkhead is solid and free of rust.

    Original 2.25 engine is complete, minus its siezed carb.

    Brakes were all refurbed before sorning, so will only need a little fettle.

    Basically, as it stands the chassis is a rolling chassis with original axles, springs, props and g/box. The body panels are all here but not 'built up'. I would happily mate the engine to the box if this made collection easier.

    Also, I have a rrc chassis shortened to 87" (this means wheels are exactly central in 88" arches on coil springs), which all t he series 3 body panels fit precisely and accurately, this can be included in the sale if interested (it has a brand new series 3 rear xmember tacted into place).

    Very happy to chat or answer any questions, log book in my name and sorned etc, also very happy to trailer to new home for cost of fuel only!

    Many thanks for interest :)

    Unless I've missed it when reading your ad.... are you talking hundreds of pounds for this - or thousands given what some are going for at the moment??
