Locost Project for sale

Hi Locost Builders,

I am a long-time lurker of these threads over the years and I have made the decision to sell my project, the chassis is a Ron Champion book chassis built by a professional welder who worked for BAE systems and was done to a high standard. He had it on the road at one point and I purchased it off him as a collection of parts; my intention was to fit a Rover K series with a type 9 gearbox and put fresh bodywork on. I have removed the aluminium panels, but they are still present and could be used again if the new builder decides to use them.

To summarize

Locost Chassis (professionally welded)
Pair of Cortina Uprights with Vented Discs
English Axle with diff (I think 3.89)
Full Wishbone/5 link set
Build Shocks (Threaded Steel Bar)
Steering Rack (Escort)
Steering Rack Mount Bushes
Sierra Steering Column (Lost key)
Mountney Steering Wheel
Radiator (Renault 11)
4xFiesta Wheels (to move about)
Blue Nosecone with yellow Grill
Aluminium Panels (side, interior, bonnet etc)
Front Indicators
Rear Lights
Rear Fog Light
Rear Reverse Light
Number plate Light
Fuel Tank (steel powder coated)

I would consider breaking, but I would prefer is to go together.
If no takers itís going on eBay.

Pickup is from Liverpool.

£950ono

The links work for me.

Perhaps you need to be a Photobucket user to view them. ( I use Photobucket )

I think that is a great price for so much

I would not break it as the remaining parts, especially the body work will be much harder to sell
