Right where do I start. have come to realise I don;t have the time to finish this. I bought this about 5 years ago with the intentions of having it on the road within the year (sound familiar) any way  what has been done is. all of the rot has been cut out and new panels welded in. I sprayed the car about 3 years ago in a single lock up garage. the car has been on my drive under a cover for 2 years so paint could do with some attention. the engine is a 500 cu. in. cadillac v8 mated to a th400 auto box. rear end cadillac narrowed with mosser shafts and l. s. d. . front end jag. ubbed rear. hurst shifter. 16 gallon fuel cell in boot. line lock. a lot of money has been put into this car. It dose need finnishing and will need to be trailered away. I have a friend with a transporter and can get a quote to deliver). Car is regestered correctly (see photo). We had the car running 2 years ago before we moved home and it went under cover. however there was a problem with the rear chamber on the carb it kept flooding. since then it has had a new eddlebrock carb fitted. Now the bad bits. the carb plumbing needs tweeking. the scoop linkage is missing (available on ebay). no interior. just 2 bucket seats. back brake stuck on due to lack of movement Hand brake needs finnishing. if needed. as already stated it has a line lock. so it has a secondry form of brake. car is not running. I do have a new battery to go with the car (never been fitted) the main problem is shown in the last photo. the steering rack shaft needs welding or replacing. there are bound to be other bits and pieces that need doing depending on how far you want to go. call me if you have ant questions as i don;t have time to  keep e. mailing. so if you want a quick reply call me on 07591693102. THIS CAR WAS ON THE ROAD WITH THIS ENGINE  MANY YEARS AGO. a good weekends work will have this car up and running.

Now the boring bits. Check with your wife. husband. girlfriend. boyfriend. mum. dad or whoever before you bid.

The car is on axle stands at the moment. so your welcome to come and view the car in fact i would encourage it.
