Default Because Racecar - Sweeney's Oval Racer *REDUCED*

****NOW REDUCED****

I'm advertising this race car on behalf of my compadre who is sadly selling it due to personal issues. Soooo, here goes:


Tube Chassis Genuine Oval Steel Body Drag Car


Body & Chassis

The body is a genuine steel oval body which was a good, dry shell to start with, modified to fit the tube chassis and featuring a one piece flip front. Chassis has been built to an 8.50 tag with an SFI 25.4 main cell all built from ProFormance Metals ROPT 500 tube.

It's an IRS 4 bar at the rear with 1303 front suspension and custom lower wishbones. All sat on fantastic Weld Magnum 2.0 wheels.











Engine & Gearbox

Engine is a 76mm x 96mm Type 4 engine with all the right bits in it; dry sump, efi, turbo, all bolted to a 091 weddle geared gearbox and Bear's Motorsport rapid fire shift system.




Owner is looking for offers based around 13500, but he will entertain serious offers. This price is for the complete car, engine and parts detailed MINUS the gearbox and shifter which are now sold.

More photos van be found on the build gallery here:

https://photos.app.goo.gl/yRqXohCMYvQjPHqb2

This car is 90% dry built and has 95% of the parts needed to complete the build. The car is based at RNJ Motorsport in Northampton & Rob at RNJ can talk you over any of the details you need to know about this car (including finishing the car if you need him to).

You can contact Rob on 01327 830400 or rob AT rnjmotorsport.co.uk. Alternatively, you can PM myself and I'll handle any queries that I can but in all honesty Rob has built this and will be happy to answer any questions from serious buyers.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to go Pro racing at a fraction of the build cost.

Cheers,
Smull

Owner would now be willing to break this into chunks to make a sale. Therefore rolling chassis & body, engine & gearbox can now be negotiated separately.

Get in touch with Rob or fire me a pm for more details.
