Now the price is even righter - $10.000 obo.
Take out the roll cage and change the seats, and you're well on the way to a road car.

Yes, I guess like putting Webers on a TR6, fitting the carbs is just the start of the journey.
After that, head for a rolling road, a good one that can hold a speed/load as someone on here pointed out, and spend a wad of $$$ getting it set up. That is assuming you know how and have the necessary selection of parts.

Do recall someone saying of the aforementioned Webers that it cost as much to get them dialled is as it cost to buy them.
