This car was originally built in the mid-80's.

Has a modified original chassis with Viva front and Escort rear axles.

All around disc brakes , fronts being as large as i could get under Minx rims and fitted with AP racing calipers , rears have Escort van discs and Rover 800 calipers.

It is powered by a Rover 820Turbo vitesse motor mated to an SD1 gearbox. This runs on the standard ECU and is nowhere near as complicated as 'they' would have you believe(6 wires)

Roof has been chopped just over 3" , has a louvered bonnet , 2" over rear wings , glass fronts and a genuine 3 slot grille.
It also has export lights and a dropped front bumper.

This car needs some tidying , its not the cleanest and its not the quite the fastest , but i have used it as my daily for the majority of the 11 years i have owned it , and its been fantastic.....and it blows the doors off Subaru imprezza's:D.

I am selling this car due to emmigration , if it was not for this fact , i would likely keep it forever , it looks great and it's loads of fun , probably the only thing i'm gonna miss when i go.

You can buy this car , tidy it up and make it look lovely , or just drive the crap out of it , your choice , they're both do-able.

It will have a fresh MOT in a couple of weeks

£4000

There is a very unhappy Scotsman who came all the way from Glasgow this past weekend to take the car away , only to find an old biking injury prevented him from driving it , Sorry Alan , so the car is back up for grabs.

Tall people beware , the engine is set back quite a bit and it still has 4 seats...just , you'll not be able to drive this with your legs out straight(unless your names Ian:D)

I've got to say love the stance and look, the manual put me off considering it as I'vea knackered back, the short legs thing definitely rules me out :tdown:

Good luck with the sale.
