Hey all, unfortunately I'm going to have to offer this up for sale.  At this stage of my life (3 young kids, writing a book, work, other work) I just can't finish this.

Because it's OPP (other person's project) I'm going to offer it for only $1800.  I figure it'd probably make a good $2000 project car.  You could probably trade/sell some of the stuff that comes with it to recoup some of the purchase price.

The good:

  • It's a rolling chassis. Frame and suspension are done.
  • Engine is in and freshly rebuilt (J32A3)
  • Wiring harness is in.
  • Transmission is in.
  • Comes with 6 wheels plus sheet metal 'n stuff to get some other things completed.

What needs to be done:

  • Cooling system
  • Clutch and brakes (I can tell you how I was going to make it work)
  • Needs power and some wiring modification to make the throttle body work (I'll tell you how to do that)
  • Firewall (I'll supply at least one big piece of sheet metal to make that happen)
  • Figure out how to shift it (again, I can explain how I was going to do it)

I can supply some engineering design stuff that I've worked on for it, and it shouldn't need much heavy fab work.  I designed the whole thing that pretty much everything runs from off the shelf components.

If anyone is really interested, let me know here and we'll figure out how to get in touch.

You can see pretty much the entire history of the car here:

Bummer. I was really enjoying watching this move along. 

Good luck getting it sold!

I wish this were a different time because I love the project

Same here. You've done great work to this point. Maybe Stampie needs another mid engine car with future challenge potential?

I would snap this up if I had any fabrication skills!

Yeah, me too. I'm about 2500 miles from there, thank God...

I would be all over this. A great start on a challenge car for sure.

plus, whoever buys this can challenge you in a very specific version of "domestic vs import"
