selling my Jeep as I got my eyes on somethin else.
Its cortina based with a standard 3.5 litre carbed rover V8, engine is healthy and I have a recent rolling road print out showing its making what it should, no smoke or leaks or rattles from the lump. Runs the standard rover rad (i think) with two big thermostatic eletric fans so good basis to take the engine out and use for something else (thats why I bought it originally)
Faults are both rear wheel cylinders leaking, rear axle bushes knackered, exhaust downpipe is blowing as its snapped and not welded all the way round the break, but the thing is pretty loud through the sidepipes anyway, the autobox has a slight leak from the pan gasket, the hood needs repairing or replacing as the windows are stuck in with gaffer tape at the mo.
Have to say though that when the sun is out its gotta be one of the best fun cars I have ever owned, it goes like a scalded cat up to about 80mph and sounds awsome while your doing it. It has tatty apliance wheels on it although the one I bothered to clean up has come up pretty nice.
Make me an offer near 400 quid, its worth that in parts easily.

well whatever you get to replace it , you know your always welcome on here bud, and at the shows with us , are you coming donington?? i could print a for sale board for you and stake it in the ground for all to see,
there are a few rv's on ebay at the mo and a few ss's,, no body seems to want them anymore
I'll sell the engine, rad, fans, fuel pump and box out of it for £300 but to be honest you might as well give me the extra hundred quid and drive it home rather than taking it all to peices and loading it into a van.

i bought a complete v8 on ebay a while ago for about 40 pounds untested,,, i stripped it down and sold it as seperate parts, pistons conrods pushrods rockers rocker cover sump block distributer heads cam valves
i made ten times my money stripping it,i was well pleased,, its a shame that nobody seems to enjoy a bit of a fixer uppa these days, 400 pounds is really not enough, i know that and you know that, but getting people to part with money these days is very difficult, i will ask about,, you could try advertising it on some cruise sites,, www.borocruisers.co.uk www.just-cruising.co.uk www.jagoownersclub.co.uk (they are jeep style) www.BadBunnizModz.net (be carful,they are mostly girls lol)
hope it sells well for ya, you could always drop the body on to a 250 pound discovrey 4x4
