2.2 restoration project on eBay

Recommended Posts

Looking at it you'd probably need a straight jacket to take that on!! Okay for spares I suppose but it would be a shame to lose another rare car.

This is just the car James "Antiques" has been looking for! :) :)

On a more serious note you'd have to be seriously mad to take that on. It'd end up costing you more in time/money (note all the missing bits) than buying yourself a running one.

Hmmm...

Call me 'seriously mad' - but at the right price I'd be very tempted... :)

Fortunately absolutely no spare cash at all at present! :)

From the cut-out in the rear wing behind the drivers door & the scalloped bonnet it looks like someone was going to build a track / sprint car & lost interest?

From a couple of those pics, is that a 'Roller" in a similar condition? or should I say in an even worse condition in the background?

If I had my other projects sorted I would probably go for something like this and so a complete nut and bolt restoration.

As it is I have the Europa which is in need of that, so I will not be looking at it on Ebay again (that would probably be the 6th time)
