Is it me or do those rear tyres look a bit on the large side? Might be just the depth of the compomotives, don't know?

Interesting point Ian. The 4 stud split rims def have a deeper dish, but those aren't split rims. judging by the look of the sidewalls, looks like it could have oversize tyres on.

Hmm - 4 x yamaha bike carbs ? Whats that about then. The missing bolt on the rather nice steering wheel doesn't exactly instill confidence ....

Cheap mind, but better spending a bit more for a proper one maybe ....

That car has been on ebay before, about 6 months ago from memory.

The pictures are the same as the previous listing.

I too am a bit unsure about those bike carbs, must generate a pretty good blind spot out of the rear view mirror.

They are oversized tyres fitted on the back (275s I think), looks a bit rubbish, not to mention what it does to the cornering due to side wall roll.......

There are a number of other things in the pictures that are a bit odd as well as the bolt missing out of the steering wheel, like why the boot floor is misplaced, the centre console looks to be missing hence the odd air vents above the radio (and lack of interior shot) and the interesting reworking of the dash pod (still trying to figure out what the funny stripy metal things are directly behind the steering wheel). Oh, and when did a 'G'car ever get fitted with ABS ???????
