These have been on sale on and off over the past couple of years.

IIRC they were part of a one make classic/historic style race series at donnington originally powered by NA Cassie engines. The first few sold with engines and the rest have been trickling onto the market over the past couple of years. Could be wrong but think that is what was in some of the original adverts.

I've seen these being advertised for years, they look interesting but the problem (as i see it) is their use is very limited. They wouldn't be allowed in track days and in any competitive event (sprint/hillclimb/monoposto) would be lumped in with modern single seaters with no chance of being competitive.
Now that's not to say they wouldn't be fun and completely dismiss the idea but I struggle to see what you would do with one once purchased.

"NO ENGINE OR GEARBOX.
other than the missing engine and gearbox the car is 100% complete.
Originally had a ford cosworth in it but it blew up.
There were a few of these made and I think this is the last complete one left. "

No engine or gearbox would not be complete in my eyes.

Apart from the missing parts, this M8x25 bolt is a complete GT40 replica.

If the bolt has the original Ford logo on it and V5 iíll give you £20,000 lol

Not exactly, but I do have a Camembert propshaft and half a dozen Dairylea brake pads.
And Emmental makes excellent, free flowing air filters.

Just out of curiosity, What would stop them doing trackdays? If they had cycle wings wouldnt they be allowed?

Classic aircraft have been rebuilt with not much more than a bolt and vin plate





Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

It'd a single seater racing car, even with cycle wings track days organisers would turn you away.

Some might give dispensation for that it I doubt it.

I would ask the organiser before booking anything. It might be difficult though. Sprint's and hill climbs would be easier.
