    Red Nova for sale

    Hey guys, long time no see.

    Life has been a little turbulent and I am realistically never going to finish the work on this car. I worked with a mechanic who I get took me for a bit of a ride and the work is endless with it, mostly because I was inexperienced and blew a lot of money on it not knowing what I was doing.

    The car itself comes with a completed shell, windscreen, dual oil cooler, 2.3 high performance turnkey engine that needs to only be installed. Reconditioned high performance gearbox, wheels so it does roll, Roof canopy still works. All lines are braided steel.

    Any and all questions answered. Looking for 3500 for all just to desperately get rid of it from my driveway. I might sell parts individually but know that you are getting a great deal considering the engine is easily worth 5.

    Really sorry to hear that mate....I know you where as desperado as I was to find a Nova , but yea things change I have been fortunate that Bushboy is putting mine back together as I wouldnt have a chance, unfortunately hes a key worker and has a family and has to keep on top of his own car so progress has been slow but not his fault....hopefully will see mine this year.....hope your circumstances change and you can get a road going Nova one day.....tempted to ask about engine but doubt my budget would stretch that far as things still to be done on my car......
    all the best
    Dave

    Really sorry to hear that Tobias. I was wondering why you’d been so quiet after being so active on the Forum. Your Nova was a really good example ... I’d be tempted to ask more if I were you, or sell the engine separately? Other than the engine, is the car still in one piece or had you started taking her apart?
    Hope it all works out for you.

    The car is all in one piece except for the engine, buy that and you’ll essentially be getting the car bits thrown in for free! Just need to get some money back somehow!

    Actually I’m not getting any money back I’m losing money on the sale, I have just gotten a new job and have to move.

    Maybe someone didn't read, "So you want to build a kit car". Hmmmm.

    Well done Tobias! Hopefully you'll be able to get another Nova one day when circumstances improve. Could you possibly encourage the new owner to join the Forum (if they're not already a member).

    All the best, Alistair

    Touché, But that was bureaucracy changing, not me. I will finish it and be road going, again, but if I can legally drive it is another matter.

    Does anyone ever "finish" one of these projects? Hopefully not! I really did "finish" one project car, thankfully just one, my first, a Mk1 Ford Fiesta rebuilt write off. I saw the clock go over 100k, did 80k+ of those miles in it myself, very sadly the next owner was the scrapper. I waxoiled it to death, but it just rotted at the seams, 20 years of standing outside. The 2nd engine was still good. The first engine threw a ring and holed a piston leaving a very deep groove in the bore.
