    Hi all,
    as avid followers you prob remember my cheap auction buy a couple of years ago,
    as is always the story ,lack of time and funds mean I have not done anything other than collect a few parts,
    this is an ex cheaters burnout car and has been setup for a small block chev, auto tran
    s has been rebuilt and has deep alloy pan, and from what I was told a reverse shift pattern valve body, torque converter is missing and no chev motor installed, comes with complete original v12 that has had the typical dropped valve, the piston is holed and I cant quite see if bore is damaged on the bore-scope, motor is completes with all injection and accessories, original engine mounts on the chassis have been cut off but I have the plates cut to remake as per factory, interior is original with no tears, for a driver you could just clean and re-colour, carpets are shot, main mats anyway, dash has a bit of shrinkage but could be fixed without recover, console wood has been cut for B&M shifter, has GAZ coilovers in the rear, diff centre cond unknown,
    this will never be a concourse car, its a project for somebody who can do the work themselves,
    just tidy up and drop in a chev or a holden 5l and drive, rebuild the v12 at your leisure,
    ex UK car and appears to have come to Australia around 91/2, originally Azzuro blue,
    has had the sill/rocker panels replaced and done reasonably well, rear quarter bottoms have been done and still solid, small patch of rust bubbling on lower rh fender and rh roof,
    fuel tanks are in good cond and out of car,
    if you see my posts I got this car pretty cheap but that said it was a gamble that all the bits were there, Im offering it at more than I paid, but that's business so shoot me...
    what its missing,
    fuel pumps,
    one lower air intake the steel bit under the injection that holds the air cleaner,
    torque converter ($200 off the shelf)
    original door key and ignition lock ( I have an alfa one that just needs the steering lock lengthend or use as is) ignition lock surround trim
    lh windscreen wiper wheel house pivot and lever
    boot trim from sides, spare wheel cover is there,
    located Albany Western Australia,
    I can get to Perth for transport,
    I can crate all the parts and motor for shipping,
    $25k AUD as is, transported to Perth if needed,
    No offers at the moment please
