FREE: Locost Project to a good home

Post by gtivr4 » Tue Feb 10, 2015 10:40 am

So after many years of slow progress and now on the verge of moving, its time to say goodbye to my Locost project. In order to get it gone as fast as possible, I'm offering it to a good home for FREE (obo ;).

Whats included (probably more, but off the top of my head):
442 frame probably 80% complete (no transmission tunnel for example)
Rear axle - Volvo 940 solid axle with locker diff, 4.10 gears. Modified to fit sans shock mounts (work in progress). Have QA1 shocks as well. New brake rotors. 14" Alloys with tires included (for mockup purposes only). also have 4 14" steelies in good shape, no tires.
Front axle - Miata spindles modified to accept 5/8" tie rods. Appleton manual steering rack. Yamaha R6 shocks, Kinetic Vehicles A-arm kit. This is the most "complete" part of the project. Miata brakes. no front wheels/tires, but those are easy to come by!
Engine - 1990 (or 89, can't remember) Nissan KA24E (the 140hp, 12 vlalve motor) from a donor 240SX. Includes 5 speed transmission, original clutch and a new clucth in box. Also have the full wiring harness, dash and a bunch of other parts.

There are tons of other little bits and pieces that I can't think of now.

Only real requirement is that you take it ALL and don't just part it out.

What could you end up with? A Lotus Seven replica with 140hp, and around 1500lbs that YOU built.

Nathan, I want it. How soon do I need to come up and get it? Also, would you be annoyed if I ended up putting a rotary engine in it?

If it doesn't work out with Dave, I'll take next in line. :3gears:
