No, not the Dodge Dart. The little alloy Daimler hemi, plus overdrive box presumably the original Triumph.

Fully restored car.
Nice engine choice. Good fit. Light. Is that a dynator up front?.

Since resto, 120 miles. Hard to understand how that happens. All that time and effort - and cash - drive it a few miles then sell it. Perhaps it's too good to use. Me, I never want a car too shiny, something to worry about.

Anyway, here it is or will be when the auction starts.

Check out the pics. Hope you like blue.

How it happens..... owner spends 80/90k ($100-110k) then dies before it's done.
Son gets it finished, then sells.
Shame when the next generation don't share the passion.

Anyway, sells in theory. RNM at 29,250.

On that site, one has to be logged in to read the comments, and I'm not. Wonder how many were moaning about the mods.
Over here, 30k is a big ask for a modified car.

Out of curiousity I signed up for that auction site.
Not one single comment, just bids.

That said, unlike BAT there is the facility to contact the seller behind the scenes. Perhaps there was chitchat through that route.
Me, I'd much prefer the knowledge-sharing of BaT.
