I bought this blind over the phone over a year ago now.
Planned to break it as it has lots of good bits and I wanted the engine for another project.

Got it back to the workshop and there it has sat ever since.

I was clearing up in the workshop and needed to move it outside. I dusted it off and went over it.It is a really solid shell.

Opinions please as I am torn whether to sell it on complete, strip the good bits and sell the shell on or make it a track day toy?
Would be ideal for an engine convertion?

Spec:
Freash MG metro engine,

virtually new 13x7 minilites's and tyres.
Hi-lo's
Spax adjustables
Poly bushed
Engineer built steel flip clubman front.

This car is a real bizza
MK1 rear end styling.
Sports pack kit and 13x7 alloys
Clubman steel front
later shell
bucket seats , harnesses,
Custom dash - I have a carbon race dash and full cage to fit to it.


Needs a bit of wireing, lights and front bumper fitting and the carb and exhaust refitting.
All panels, doors etc all good, Localised paint repairs to make perfect.

Opinions please as I am torn whether to sell it on complete, strip the good bits and sell the shell on or make it a track day toy?

Could save someone a lot of time and money in the long run and it is Tax exempt !!

If you can afford it, keep it as a track day car :D. but if you're going to sell it, sell it complete. It's a lush car, i'm soo jealous >.<

I've shifted this to the valuations area.

It may sell better than you think, i've seen some strong clubby sales lately. Modd'd stuff as well.

If you track it then that destroys the value, doesn't sound like theres a great deal of work and its quite an unusual car.

With a ticket, maybe not fit the cage as that would make it tricky(er) to insure.

£1800-£2000


(obviously thats just walking around money to a man of your stature!!)

Thanks Shifty, I always get the wrong area !!

Agreed about the cage. I have all bits to complete this car that I would include for the right offer.
Seems a good way for someone who likes the look of it to save a lot of time and money in the long run.
I have to say that it certainly stands out and look right to me


Usual case of too many projects and not enough time

Why don't you get your arse in gear and get it done?

(I bet you've even got a shirt that would match the pink seats!!)

She's quite a nice looking thing really!!

I will do it when time permits.
I was after opinions or trying to save someone else a lot of time.

I have one particular project I am keen to start but that is a long termer and releasing some cash for that would be good.

Am I in danger of getting a non finish reputation !! lol

It was never a planned project but I knew it was too good to break when I collected it !!
