Time has come to sell my recent 4 year British V8 Project completely documented in the British V8 Project Journals. It's powered by a 400+ HP Ford 302 with Aluminum Heads, Roller Rocker Cam, Elelbrock Dual Quads, Custom Built C4 Automatic Trans, Mustang II Coil Over Front Suspension with Power Rack & Pinion, Custom 4 link Rear Coil Over Suspension, 4 Wheel Disc brakes, Ford Explorer 8,8 3.70 TracLock Rear Axle and 16" Front and 17" Rear Wheels.
Finished early last Summer and attended many area car shows with 100's of individuals always showing deep interest in the project. I had to provide a photo pictorial of the chassis, for most of the interest was wondering how the chassis was designed and, of course, the car is so low one cannot see under it..! Because the chassis is in show condition also, I have trailered it for the time being and then driven it in the Cruise portions of the shows. This car weighs 2240# with 1126# Front and 1114# Rear without driver. This car is absolutely a ROCKET and will easily out perform ANY after-market AC Cobra along with being a ONE OF and half the cost....!
I have $29K+ in detailed receipts and offering to sell for 30K. I'm 75 and never intended to keep and drive this toy. This was close to the last item on my Bucket List and I want the money for the Last item.
