    Roadster kit for sale

    Marina based kit for sale. Rolling chassis, painted and waxoyled, body tub, floor steering,and pedals installed. Brake and fuel line in. All kit parts are there, windscreen, seats, grill, lights, light bar, wings, radiator. A set of five wolfrace alloys with good tyres, but probably out of date stamp.
    The engine is a 1275 marina with zero hrs since rebuild. I have had the engine running for a few minutes and it sounds sweet. Gearbox and propshaft.
    It is of course a project, I was working on it slowly but have bought a complete YKC car, cos time is running on for me.
    I will put it on eBay when I've got a set of pictures, but it's here first. It must be worth a grand for parts alone.
    You can get me on here or phone 07821 863947

    Hi Chris, roughly where is the Roadster living? Also short or long wheel base?
    Hood part of the kit?
    If itís not registered then it is probably only good for the parts. Look forward to some pictures though.
    Cheers, Martin.

    Hi,
    I think it's a shot wheelbase but if you could tell me the two sizes I will measure it.. It's located in Devon.

    This your one Chris?
    I like the wheels and 5 of too.
    Is there a hood to go with it?
    Good luck I see there is a fair bit of interest with 14 watchers and counting.

    Pretty sure it is too. Shame it never got completed in time for SVA. Good for accident repair purposes, or spare parts.

    I would have had the body panels for spares, but seller wanted buyer for the whole car and I don't have room for spare chassis.

    Re: Roadster kit for sale

    Same here for most panels but mine is LWB also spare engine, spare gearbox etc. and I like the wheels but donít think the other half would appreciate the chassis hanging around.
    I was thinking about it but couldnít think of a good enough excuse just for the spares.
