Maybe? I just know what’s in the ad. Somewhere here should turn it into a $2000 Challenge car. :)

That looks like it may be a Manx, but more likely it's one of the many copies.  Either way, $50 sounds like a deal.

I no longer even have to search FB Marketplace for forlorn kit cars. It just knows.

How about a Fiero-based 1992 Lamborghini replica?

Regarding the "917", I'm highly skeptical when anyone talks of joining two engines together. The issue is harmonic resonances in the crankshaft and manufacturers spend big bucks ensuring it's not an issue. Taking a balancer off one engine and assuming the one remaining on the other will handle both is highly optimistic. Just the fact that it's so much further away likely indicates trouble in the future. Regarding the transaxle, yeah that's always the problem, finding one that can handle whatever's thrown at it. Proper ones are so expensive that it keeps most of us from building our mid-engine dream cars. Using a small one is death by a thousand cuts, whereas you know that you can't ever really get on it for fear of grenading the unit.

A flat six, like inline sixes, has perfect prinary and secondary balance.

Vibration is probably less an issue than youd think.  Put the damper between the engines and send it.

Cobra Daytona Body

This one popped up locally, if I had the space and hadn't spent a wack of fun money for a trip later this year, I'd be all over it.

That's a private group you need to join in order to see the ad.  Any chance you can get a screen capture and post it?

Thank you :)

This is a car that my buddies and I created in the late 90's.  It has a dedicated space frame.  We sold the body and frame  kit back then for $14900.00.  With suspension, wheels, headers and more this is a great deal. (If still available)  We had Tubular Automotive fabricate the beautiful headers.  And, we had Shell Valley lay up the body from our molds.  One of my buddies passed last year.  I've had my health issues and am having quadruple heart by pass surgery this June 19.  I'm not going to be building anything for awhile.

I have the molds, a body, a frame and a frame jig, and header jigs (for both SBC and LS).  I'm putting them up for sale.  10K

Hi Mr Chesnut. I already bought one set of molds from you and it's all I can do to keep from picking up the phone and calling you about this one! That's a killer deal that you are offering. Good luck with your medical issues!
