For Sale - Haynes Roadster

It is with a very heavy heart that I'm doing this....

Due to change in circumstances, I'm selling my Haynes Roadster. It's been built by me (a mechanical engineer) to a very high standard over the last five years.

It has a tig welded chassis and wishbones, which are adjustable for camber front and rear.
There are adjustable Gaz shocks all round, and front and rear discs.
The tyres are Yokohama Paradas, 195/50/15.

The fibreglass is from Saturn, and the side and rear panels are in aluminium, covered in 3M Di-Noc Carbon fibre

The seats are Westfield sport ones and are really comfy! There are also Sabelt harnesses, and a Motalita steering wheel. The tunnel top and aero screen are also covered in Di-Noc.

The dash has VDO instruments from Westfield, and was custom built by me.

It has 2l Zetec Silvertop engine (pre '95 for IVA emissions test). It has a shortened aluminium sump, a new 1.8l water pump, new cam belt, 40mm Jenvey throttle bodies, a 4-1 stainless exhaust manifold, and a beautiful stainless silencer, made by Paul Gooderham (907 on here).

The engine is controlled by an Omex 600 ecu and LC1 lambda controller, and has been mapped by Atspeed Racing in Essex.

The gearbox is a V6 type 9, with a Caterham spacer between the gearbox and bellhousing.

As you can see, the car as been built to a good spec, and I hope the photos below show that it as been built to a high standard.

The car has its chassis number, and has been built to pass IVA. Unfortunately, my change in circumstances means that I will not be in a position to IVA it now, and so the sale price reflects this. Don't confuse this with a part finished project that you'll need to strip down and rebuild, it really is a fully built car, that I just can't afford to IVA. Everything works, it drives, steers and stops beautifully, ad you are welcome to come and view it. People that have seen it have complimented the quality of the build.

I really don't want to sell this, but needs must, so I'm asking 3,500 for it. You really couldn't buy the parts to build a car to this spec for that money!

Any questions, please ask!

Cheers

Adrian

This is a beautiful car and a sad day, is there no way you can store it until things improve?

Just sold my Viento..... and I am Sooooo Tempted

I need a motorhome instead, as I sold the caravan last year and the wife misses it (and the caravan )
I am just not using the Viento enough, only 300 miles this year
Also I think I am going to restore my Matchelss Bike which hasnt seen the light of day for about 10 years. Its all in bits, and is somewhere in the garage


Nice car, Hope you get what you want for it.
Someone is going to get a bargain.

Good look with the sale, if you sell yours I may try mine. Same as you I have loved building it but a car with a roof and a v5 has more to offer.
