Everything must go
jonrotheray - 17/6/18 at 03:15 PM

I'm never going to build this, so I'm getting rid of everything. Jealous of David Jenkins, but full of admiration too!
Pictures in my archive.
Buy it and build it, or just split it up and move it on.
400 the lot - the only condition is that you take everything! I'm in Mid-Sussex close to Crawley.

Locost (Ron Champion) chassis with welded steel floor pan; Escort steering rack, Cortina uprights with front discs and English axle with rear drums;
Crossflow 711 1300 reconditioned engine (unleaded); another 1300 block and head for spares.
Single DHLA 40 carb with manifold
Two 4-speed gearboxes (one removed from a Caterham); 2 prop-shafts; 3 diffs (3.54, 4.125, unknown); Escort axle
4 minilites and one copy; 5 tyres Toyo 350
Swept wings and brackets; fibreglass rear wings and nose; spare nose;
Glass windscreen with kitemark and wipers; double-bubble aeroscreen;
2 Seats; 2 4-point harnesses;
Petrol tank with sender;
Haynes roadster style pedalbox;
Ford steering column and wheel (Orion?);
All lights new 7 heads, rear clusters, fog and reversing; used bike indicators;
Rear disc conversion kit (not fitted);
Various instruments including electronic speedo and Bright6;
Megajolt and ancillaries including a Crossflow toothed pulley (not fitted);
Radiator (new Polo I think);
Mini heater;
Aluminium low-profile sump and pickup (needs attention - baffles need welding or brazing)
Enough aluminium sheet to complete bodywork.
Many other bits and pieces (eg master cylinder, brake and fuel pipes, filler cap and neck, bolt sets, Burton gasket set, and more).
Receipts for many of these, and a Ford letter confirming engine date.
Ron Champion book; Haynes Roadster book; Escort Haynes Manuals; Weber/Dellorto Carb manual.

First dibbs on seats and fuel tank if you break it.

I think the OP was quite clear, you mut buy everything.

....and let's face it, it's a great deal the axle and crossflow must be worth double what he wants on their own! I'd buy the lot if I didn't have 3 projects on the go already

That seems like a fantastic bargain for someone.

You'll probably get more splitting but it would be a lot more hassle. Good luck with the sale. Personally I'd say solder on. Think of the satisfaction when you finish.

(I'm in year 18 and I refuse to give in despite making things difficult for myself by making my own non standard design)

An absolute gift. Good job I am not nearer.

Thanks for all the interest.
I've got 4 people queued up hoping to buy.
If all goes well number 1 will come and collect next week, if not I'll U2U folks in order.
