Classic Roadsters Austin Healey Replica for Sale3 Comment

Classic Roadsters MX, For Sale | Mon, 14 May 2012 Posted by :

I am posting this for one of my regular customers at the track. Until he drove it in yesterday I did not even know he owned it. He is downsizing his collection to concentrate on one build and is ready to part with this great looking car. If you or anyone you know might be interested in it feel free to contact Tony. This is a serious car for the money.

Classic Roadsters Sebring MX a fiberglass replica of a 1960′s Austin Healey 3000 on STEROIDS. Equipped with a GM ZZZ crate motor with the “HOT” GM hyd. roller cam. Upgraded with roller rocker arms and Edelbrock performer intake and Edelbrock 800 CFM thunder series carb. Headman headers with Flow Master HushPower mufflers. Borg Warner T-5 Jasper rebuilt 5 Speed tranny.

Ford 8 inch rear with 350 gears and Posi-Traction.The front suspension is a Mustang II type with QA1 coil over shocks and upgraded 11 inch brakes. The rear end uses Fox Body upper and lower Mustang control arms and the car has front and rear anti sway bars. 10 inch rear and 8 inch front Centerline Wheels with 295-50-15 rubber on the rear. I have owned it since 02-2003.

You get in it cranks, runs perfect, turns every head you when you pass. The car/engine has about 15000 miles on it. It is a loud, obnoxious red, in your face car that does not have to apologize or back down from anyone or anything in the looks or performance department. Car ran 11.80′s at 117MPH on 8 inch slicks. The slicks were laying around the shop; I had to try it at least once…The car is the same size and weight as most 427 AC Cobra replicas but is much more unique.

To go with the car as shown I have a vinyl top, boot cover, roll up windows and new front and rear chrome bumpers. I also have a new never installed front chrome grill and spare windshield. Price is firm but consider this, if it was a Cobra instead of and Austin Healey the price would $41,500 not $22,500. I am selling because I have too many toys and too little room. One plus for this car is that Hagerty Insurance will insure this Austin Healey replica but will not insure Cobra replicas, twice the fun at half the price

A finished March Hare kit car!27 Comment

For Sale, March Hare | Fri, 05 Jun 2009 Posted by :

Oh, it’s not mythical after all!

And it’s for sale… but I’ll get to that in a future entry with some more photos. This was built by Bruce Kirk in St. Louis, MO in 1988 with his teenage son. It’s one of only seven believed to have been molded by Jim Edwards. It’s had numerous adventures, including being driven down to a car show in Indianapolis where they got to drive it around the 500 race track for fun. It’s currently sitting in his garage waiting for a little attention, or a buyer. Anyway, it’s great to see such a rare car finished.

The picture is nice and big — click to zoom in.

Mini 18 for sale4 Comment

For Sale, Mini 18 | Thu, 30 Apr 2009 Posted by :

Brian (tuna_641@hotmail.com) is selling this very clean looking Mini 18 VW Beetle pickup conversion. It’s a very rare kit, and I suspect there are less than a dozen of them on the road (and not many more ever made). Brian’s has the original paint (does that matter in a kit?) and he says it runs and drives great. Appropriately it has an 8-track player and a vintage CB radio. Up until recently this car was a daily driver.

It’s on a ’73 Super Beetle chassis, with many new parts (including carb, gas tank, distributer, plugs, plug wires, air cleaner, voltage regulator, belt, master cylinder, wheel cylinders, seat covers, and carpet). Truck is located in St. Ansgar, Iowa.

Is that a dual-engine Bradley GT?4 Comment

Bradley GT, For Sale | Sun, 08 Mar 2009 Posted by :

Speaking of front-engine kit cars, an amusing faux-front-engine Bradley GT is for sale right now in Odessa, Texas. It’s got a big mean intake sticking out of the hood and Vette-style sidepipes, even though the actual power comes from a nice looking 1640cc Beetle engine in the back. It’s got Crager wheels and a flamed paint-job, and other than a dead fuel gauge is in “very good” condition.

Asking price is $4,500 — contact mikarjones@sbcglobal.net if you’re interested.

Avenger Stock Car1 Comment

Avenger, eBay, FiberFab, For Sale | Sun, 08 Mar 2009 Posted by :

On the whole, this front-engine Avenger project seems a little sloppy (and I feel sorry for the seller who is letting it go for $500, after saying they’ve invested $5,000). It’s currently for sale on eBay (#160320097785) in Levittown, PA, and seems to be a stock car type chassis with the center section of an Avenger kit car slapped on. Personally, I can’t see this being worth buying since it doesn’t come with either the front or rear sections of the body — meaning an enormous amount of work would be needed to finish the project — but still, it’s an interesting idea and shows that there are some non-obvious ways of putting these cars together.

Surprisingly, this is not the first front engined Avenger that I’ve posted (and it’s certainly possible to build a low-profile sports car with a front engine setup, like the Eagle SS).

Avenger with sub-frame0 Comment

Avenger, FiberFab, For Sale | Sat, 07 Mar 2009 Posted by :

Steve (lascr@aol.com) in Greenville is selling this 1966 Avenger GT-12 for just $2,000. As with so many, he bought it with the intention of finishing what was already an ongoing project, but realized it wasn’t the time for it and is looking for another brave soul to tackle it. It’s a great starting point with good front and rear glass and solid floor pans (light surface rust). The body needs light repair and paint, and the passenger door needs some repairing. The interior has the dash and center console, but needs to be completlely done. It has the swing axle transmission but no engine. The reason you may want to jump on this one is that it’s the first generation body with the nice two-piece setup with a sub-frame and a flip rear end — most do not have this feature.

No, no, not another Countach wing!4 Comment

eBay, For Sale, Nova, Sterling | Tue, 03 Mar 2009 Posted by :

There’s a really beautiful Nova (UK Sterling) up on eBay (#330310994293) right now in Lancashire, UK with an asking price of £4,000.00 and a day to go. Seems like a fair price for a car that’s been completely overhauled — everything on it is new or rebuilt and it really looks good. Surely it’s one of the better ones on the road… but why, oh, why, does it have to have that ridiculous Lamborghini Countach wing pasted onto the back? I’ve seen that highly recognizable wing stuck on far too many kits, adding an obnoxious touch that wrecks the lines of the car. If I bought this Nova, the first thing I’d do is take the wing off — which, incidentally, is what I did with my old Aztec 7, which the previous owner had stuck the same wing onto.

Lightning TS Corvette Replica11 Comment

Corvette, eBay, For Sale, Lightning TS | Tue, 03 Mar 2009 Posted by :

As used car prices come down, sometimes kit cars cost more than the car they emulate… For example, you can buy a beat-up Lamborghini Countach for close to the same price as a top-of-the-line replica (which arguably is a better car, but that’s an entirely different and more complex argument). But a rare British kit car called the Lightning TS really takes the cake.

The Lightning TS, of which half a dozen exist, is a “copy” of a seventies Corvette, built on Cortina running gear with a 2L Pinto engine. It captures some of the lines, but none of the muscular charm of a real Corvette. There’s one right now on eBay (#270351775187, and also here) in Scotland with a buy-it now price of £3,500 (ie. $5,000 US). Stateside you can buy a functioning used Corvette for less than that (I understand they may be more rare in Scotland), and if you want something Corvette-like but small, you can also get a charming Opel GT for the same price. Sorry, I don’t know what sort of fool would buy this Lightning TS.

I feel dirty now… I hate to say anything bad about kit cars.
