Due to a change in circumstances I am thinking of either selling my restoration project VGK or selling the bits after I strip it down

All polybushed gaz shocks alround and totally rebuilt engine (by Mad Mart) includes fast road cam brand new Weber twin 40 setup both carbs and engine never used, Ali coil radiator electric fan fitted. Powder coated front subframe all new ball joints etc.

All the interior is in good condition, dials, woodwork, wheels good too

Brand new wiring loom still in packet

High torque starter fitted.

Not decided on prices yet but will sort soon if there’s some interest here before I put n eBay.

Check out the restoration project to see engine etc photos

Cheers
John

Hi John, long time no speak. It's a shame you have to sell the Sprint, you've put a lot of work into it.

BTW the engine was rebuilt with mostly new parts.

Surely it will sell easier and for more complete?

From the experience of trying to sell a stripped down vehicle previously, the first thing to go is something that renders it immobile and the rest hangs around for ages and simply becomes inconvenient!

Got some rust to sort on the back of the roof at the seam then only requires paint and putting wiring in and refitting the interior. All doors, front end has had all rust removed etc and new panels welded in. Engine and carbs have 3k in new parts and about another 3k of other bits at least on the car.

Not decided which way is best to go yet.

Cheers
John

That is a real shame if you have to go this route.
I would be interested in the loom and the suspension stuff, but would need posting.
I think someone should take this on as a resto to finish first and foremost, just my opinion.
But your car and your circumstances will dictate, whatever you do good luck.

Hi John, I am looking for a good subframe for my Sprint as it was hit by an unoccupied car at the beginning of the New Year just after going back on the road. If you decide to break your project car I would be interested in the subframe complete as that would speed my repair/restoration up no end. I understand if you want shot of the whole car and that may be an option but I also understand if you take the "finish the restoration route". I would be interested to hear from you. Chris

I have a second hand Sprint subframe available that doesn’t rely on another car being lost...Stourbridge.
