Midlana Unfinished Project ST170

Due to financial woes this is a rare opportunity to buy a Midlana project. www.midlana.com

This is a mid-engine 7 style project kit car that I started building a year and a half ago. What is for sale is described as follows;

Its is a fully TIG welded tubular space frame chassis with fully rose jointed double wishbone suspension front and rear, Mazda MX5 steering rack and uprights, Protech dampers. Pair of GRP seats by JK composites. OBP pedal box and master cylinders. Haynes roadster style GRP wings in red, Custom engine mounts to fit Ford ST170 engine and six speed box, an engine and box is included in the sale but needs rebuild. Alcantara steering wheel and custom steering column, Japan racing 17 inch wheels with Avon tires.

You need to be a fairly competent fabricator/welder to finish this car to a high standard. If your handy with cars and have metalworking experience you should be okay to finish this and would be fantastic sports car once on the road.

Jobs left to do;

Fit GRP 7 style nose cone (will need modifying to fit), Make a fuel tank or buy and fit a Lotus Elise tank. Gear linkage, Plumbing, Wiring, Rebuild engine or buy and fit another engine of your choosing, Driveshafts, Aluminium panelling/bodywork, Dashboard, Paint/powder coat, Final assembly, Pass IVA, Drive!

Asking £4k the project.

Viewing the car before buying is highly recommended.

Collection from near Mansfield Notts. Thanks.

that looks bloody awesome - not sure that I am ready to trade my Fury in yet - but that is certainly a machine!

Sorry mate

Some lucky person is going to pick up an incredible bargain.... Doug is a very skilled and experienced fabricator.

Thanks Chris, onward and upward mate. I'll start building something else in a year or two when things are little more settled. Watch this space.

I still have this project for sale if anyone out there is looking to build something a bit different to your average Locost, so I'm bumping it up to the top to try and sell this.

I have moved onto other projects now and this is just taking up space. I need to sell ASAP. Feel free to make offers well below the asking price. Don't miss out here on a very rare opportunity to get a head start on a fantastic Midlana build.
