Possible breaking +2 race car

PostPost by: jasper2347 » Sat Oct 23, 2021 3:17 pm

Hi all, as we seem unable to shift our sprint prepared +2, we are considering breaking the car and selling what's left as a project for someone to build it back up again. It does seem odd that project cars and basket cases are easier to sell than a proper nice looking running car. Usually for not much less. If that's what the market wants, that's fine.

Items which will be taken off will include a rear roll cage with seat belt bar. Race seats and belts, OMP steering wheel, Full running big valve engine with all parts including carbs and exhaust. You can blast it up the road before we take it out if you want. Gearbox?? maybe not.
Any interest will be noted before we decide. :)

As you say it seems a shame, but if you are breaking I'd be interested in the roll cage. Perhaps you could put on a link to where you are advertising it?

Hi in reply to both the above questions. Yes I may have a trim, think it's in two bits? Not in very good order as it sat on the track for a lap or two. Still usable I think. will have a look. Car is currently on my old firms web site, now sold to my brother as I've retired. Just google RJ Engineering Bedale. Car is in 'projects' I believe. Need to flog the motor before removing the motorsport stuff, as may still use the car next year for hillclimbs. Many thanks. :D
