Technical specifications, photos and description:
My sons car which we are now selling as just are not getting round to fixing it. it has no mot or tax as has been off the road for 5 years. Being sold as a non runner.
BodyThis was the most solid car i could find when it was bought. It was MSA logbooked with homologation papers and had just been finished after its conversion from a tr7 road car to tr8 rally car. It has a roll cage fitted. The 7th picture shows a small hole in the floor pan about 6 inches long. Plus the panhard rod has pulled off the chassis. The car is basically still solid but needs a little welding as described plus a repaint. I have rubbed both floor pans down underneath and applied 2 coats of hammerite over the last 2 winters. As you can see i have a new front spoiler included.
Power TrainThe engine is a standard v8 on SU carbs. I have a weber set up with 4x40 webers on a mangoletsi manifold which have never been fitted. It has a SD1 5 speed gearboxThe rear axle is the later heavy duty version with an LSD which worked very well. I don't know the ratio but i believe the LSD was new.
SuspensionThe suspension is running escort front 2 and a quarter inch Bilstein roller top mount struts with bilstein rear shocks. The car has been polybushed.
BrakesIt has princess 4 pots on the front with vented discs plus a caliper conversion on the rear with solid discs. It also has a hydraulic handbrake.
This is not an ex works car but had been built by a gentleman who prepared vehicles from his home. It worked well but i had plans to build a mega engine hence i bought the weber carb conversion for it but the wiring issue happened and i never got round to it.
We are selling now while the car is still good enough for someone to put it back to its former glory or even better.
£5995 ono - including carbs
