This car has been raced at Shakespeare County Raceway, Santa Pod, and York Raceway. Also been exhibited at Race Retro, Beaulieu and Broadlands.
The car has been stripped (took all of a day!) and i was just about to get chassis powdercoated. Shell is part rubbed down ready for new paint. All original parts are present aswell as the carb and piecrusts. Very easy build that would take a weekend at tops. Included in the sale is the trailer that was used for taking to drags. Nothing fancy but does the job.
I'm happy to answer any questions and get any pics that may be required.
The car is priced to sell and a snip of what i paid for it. I will not break the car so please don't ask
I cannot stress what a great buy this is and easily the best way into doing some Nostalga Drag racing on a tight budget.
Car can be delivered at £1 per mile
Serious enquires only please, i'm stressed enough already and please no silly offers, i'm losing a heap of money on this already.
Sad day indeed.
£1200 no offers or swaps
