Vehicle Description

PARTS or PROJECT !! I am selling this car for a friend who has taken a job transfer. It has been sitting for almost 10 months. Here's what happened. He started the car in the morning to go to work, the car stalled at the end of the drive way. It would not restart. My guess is that the timing belt/chain has jumped time. It turns over but will not start. In the months before he has put $4000. into a rebuilt transmission, all new tires, all new brakes and more. The interior is very nice. The car at this time is 100% complete. Nothing has been removed. I have many receits and service records with the paper work. The car originaly came from Canada and reads in kilometers. John

I saw this car in person 10 months ago. It is a confirmed cam failure, as I was able to rotate the WP cam by hand easily. I completely forgot about it, and lost track of the car. I just bought it, cause I always meant to pick it up, just things got away from me.

It has a brand new Ford installed tranny in it. I had pictures of the receipts and the mileage up till a few days ago. It went about 4000km on the new tranny before the cams let go.

I doubt I'll fix it, but it's a perfect parts car candidate now :-) and I would have a brandy new tranny to swap into a car with a dead one.

Anyone need parts from it? I won't get to part it till the lift is installed in 2 weeks and my shop has the walls painted, but I'll take requests for items that anyone might be looking for. :-)
