Plus 2 - abandoned project

PostPost by: dunclentdr1 » Tue Nov 03, 2020 7:31 pm

I have just picked up an abandoned Plus 2s project which I am happy to pass on in whole or part to a member(s). My preference is someone takes the lot and grabs a bargain

There is no ID with the car and no identifying marks on the body and chassis.

Here is what is in the package, ideally I would like to sell as a whole:-

- Body - in decent condition, looks like it has had new front end, doors, bonnet and boot lid, some damage to air intake area, needs full restoration
- Chassis - powder coated original chassis.With suspension front and rear - looks like it has been rebuilt, will need a refresh. Looks like new springs and shocks, rebushed etc but will need some tidying and finishing
- 5 speed gearbox - not rebuilt
- 5 knock on alloy wheels
- window frames, glass and rear heated screen
- both bumpers, rear shows damage
- steering wheel
- lots of other parts, switches, locks, radiator, pedal box, dials, rear lights, fuel tank, propshaft, new donuts etc
- lots of bolts, gaskets etc etc as striped and you will no doubt need

What big things are not there - engine, carbs, interior, windscreen, brakes, diff (but I have one if required)

Happy to provide more details for anyone interested in the whole package, probably no more than £2-3k for everything and please give me a shout if interested before it goes on ebay!!

My strong preference is to pass the whole lot to someone who needs it and has time to sort out.

David

Hi
If it is not taken as a complete unit I would be interested in the 5 speed box ,prop shaft
ie the bits required to convert to 5 speed.

Hi Ed

I'm open to splitting out the gearbox and propshaft and welcome ideas about realistic price! Both will need rebuild and I am happy to send pictures.

For those who have expressed interest in the 5 speed 'box here are some photos - internally it looks excellent and the changes seem smooth although history is unknown.

Hi David,
I am interested but a price is needed. Not interested in getting into a bidding war.
