I have been trying to sell it to some people I know from the challenge for the last couple months and my buyer just fell through (no hard feelings, I understand things come up). He is helping me try to find a new buyer but not sure that will materialize so posting it up for all.

 

I am selling the shop space that I have it in, and recently moved and am not able to store it at my new house. My only caveats for the sale are 1) it makes it back to the challenge, 2) (a wish, and not a deal breaker) that whoever buys it gives me first go if and when they choose to sell it.

 

I was going to sell it for $1500 to keep it in the Challenge budget, complete with a nitrous kit and spare parts. It had cooling issues and the starter is removed to be shimmed. I have had it stored for a few years since I haven't had time to work on it so it will need a once over (oil, coolant, etc.) to run, but the engine is still fresh (in only really being run for the 2013 challenge to any extent). I will post on the forum as well, but need it gone by 1/18

 

Please help me get this car back to run in the challenge again.

Checy s10 Xtreme frame, Oldsmobile Bravado rear end, 350 engine (10:1 compression pistons and comp cam I believe from a buddy's C4 Vette), TH350 short shaft trans (weak point in the build, but budget constraints), 3500 stall converter

I'm local and this is extremely tempting...Unfortunately, w/out windows there's nowhere I could park it.

That is my problem it isn't water tight and would do poorly outside. I have some of the glass but with the chopped top it would be an effort to get it in and no door seals it would rot

the cars and coffee the day prior :)

Just down the hill from the Morris was a group of classic BMW race cars, which was intimidating since I had issues with getting the car into park, and rolling away down that hill would have been expensive $$$

That's cool, and the S10 let you take advantage of GM parts bin engineering. 

Is there a build thread?

I think this would be a great starting point for a dual purpose (local drift/2022 challenge) with my son, the timing and location won't work.
 

Ill need to watch the thread to see if anything changes, since I need to pick up a truck in Bradenton in a month or two and drive back to MA, but that would be too late.

Hot Rod Morris Minor is on my mind as the Pete shop prepares to stuff a Honda Civic drivetrain amidships a 1950 Morris Minor. As one does.

Any pics of the inside where the Humans are supposed to ride along with the engine?

Hoping to get it gone so I don't have to store it outside (no garage space right now) but if something changes we can make arrangements

Finding storage for a month or two might be possible.

Oh, this would be perfect for what you were looking at doing!

Very interested. I'm just south in Volusia county. I'm at work, so I won't be able to talk to you until tonight. I'll pm my contact info.

How is this beast on an autocross course?  It looks narrower and taller than makes me entirely comfortable....

In reply to KyAllroad (Jeremy) (Forum Supporter) :

Its as wide as an oldsmobile Bravado in the reat (a bit wider than an S10) and there is very little weight in the body with the engine sitting low in the frame, center of gravity is better than it looks. 2 people could lift the body before it was welded to the frame
