SOLD

1980's era LeGrand D Sports Racer chassis that was modified from it's 1000cc motorcycle engine form to hold a high performance built 2.5L Porsche 914 (type 4 VW) engine

This car was modified and was raced in the B Sports Modified class at SCCA events at Qualcomm and Willow Springs. The last SCCA cert I can find for the chassis is from 1985 certifying it for full competition however it was last raced in 2004 before my uncle garaged it to redo the paint & bodywork. Illness set in and he passed away and before completing his restoration.

This car currently does not run and is not a street legal automobile chassis, it is for racing purposes only. There was never a DMV title issued, but there's a certificate of manufacture for the chassis and the SCCA chassis/car log book, that I will provide with a bill of sale.

I have the engine build sheets (blueprint & balancing) from Mark Stephens High Performance VW as well as some other receipts and technical data from the build of the car as well as an engine/chassis tuning log for the car. There is an SCCA log book and certificate as well as photos of the car running as a B Sports Modified at Willow Springs and its results from running a race at Qualcomm.

The SCCA approval certificate lists it as a Chotis Masgro 001 D S/R. The certificate lists the roll cage material as 4130 and lists the serial/chassis number 193785.

Engine & Transaxle: 2.5L Porsche 914 (VW type 4) built by Mark Stephens High Performance VW. The engine is topped with dual downdraft Webber carbs. There's a "desktop dyno" sheet that shows the car had 157hp and 148ft/lbs at the rear wheels. I feel that was a conservative estimate. Transaxle appears to be a "5 rib" and is a close ratio gearbox.

Bodywork: 4 piece fiberglass body for a LeGrand Mk18, the back section still needs modification to fit on chassis properly after the engine conversion was done.

Wheels: 3 piece magnesium Compmotive Turbo II rims 13"x9" with a 4 lug pattern that will fit most manufacturers.

Rebuild the carbs, the brakes, new tires, fuel cell, battery, gauges and you'll have a track car. Yank the engine and stick it in a buggy, Meyers Manx, baja bug, VW bus, Kharman Ghia, 411 or a Porsche 914. Go crazy and put it in a sand rail or build this into an air cooled 1/8th mile dragster.

You will need a flatbed trailer to haul away, tires will hold air long enough to load onto a trailer. Car weighs less than 900lbs and could be broken down into smaller parts and hauled off in two trips with a full sized truck. I can't crate or ship this for you but I can make myself available for a shipping company of your choosing, to load it up for you.

I need it gone yesterday so my landlord will STFU. Im asking $1200 or best offer. Will trade for cash, a running 5 Hp outboard engine or high end fishing gear. I don't need tattoos, dope or hand jobs so please don't offer.

I previously posted about the car on this forum a few yrs ago erroneously as LeGrand Mk15.

Please contact me directly if interested, I have several more pics that I can email, that are just not uploaded to photobucket.

I'd love for this to become my next unfinished project, but San Diego is a long way from Connecticut.

Thank you everyone who has contacted me! You are a much more "real" group of people compared to what I've been dealing with on Craigslist.

I still have the car. I'm in San Diego CA My post is back on Craigslist after being flagged because I didn't realize I couldn't say that I'm willing to trade for firearms. Oops, my bad.

Thanks again to everybody for contacting me! Please help me find this machine a new stable and make it be the beast it can be.

Tell ya what Duke, you drive out there and get it. Then when you can't get around to it in 4 months, I'll come down from OKC and buy it!

Or maybe you just need a vacation to go and see beautiful San Diego! I can bargin for fuel and storage!
