It’s the chap I bought the white project car from.
It looks a bit haphazard, lots of power with NA brakes? Maybe that’s why the front end has been whacked :lol:
He tried to flog it to me for £1400!!

Good potential for a fun track car. Brakes will be fine with some good pads for street use.

Got to be worth a punt as long as it runs/drives. Further prep needed to be a really fun car

i'm sure you don't George, I'd forgotten how much extra space there was between the wheel and your knees with the smaller S wheel, I'm even thinking of putting a set of seat spacer blocks back in!

Is it just me or is the engine skewed to the left? Otherwise I was going to say if someone was planning the conversion then buying this as a parts car could solve a lot of problems.

That was my concern. He seemed to preparing for a classic, ‘I’m ready sorry, it was running’ or, ‘ I didn’t realise, the keys were missing and I couldn’t start it’.
Given his description on the project car, ‘the engine bits are i the boot’ - no they’re not, I’d be a little wary?
