WANTED modestly priced 4/4 for road/race

Post by Mary Lindsay »

I am looking for a modestly priced 4/4 for my son John as a road/race car.
I don't want anything too smart as we are old-fashioned and would prefer something we can fettle up ourselves.
Does anyone out there have a suitable case for treatment?

Mary- have you rung Terry Foxon at GEE?
He often has projects that have not been advertised, and he might actually have all the bits to build a 4/4 if you have the time!

John
Roadster Lightweight. 6 cylinders and two seats are on reflection most excellent.

Thanks for the suggestion John, I have emailed Terry but no response so far.
We aren't looking for another full rebuild!

Thanks Jochem, viewing it would be a little difficult and it would cost a few pounds to get it back to the UK!

Having heard how much you charge for your tennis rackets Bob I think a Morgan is the cheaper option.... :shock:

Thanks for letting us know Mary. I was only thinking of you the other day as there was a 4/4 4 seater for sale on one of the classic cars for sale websites and I was waiting to get back in to work (today!) to let you know!

Happy Morganing New Year to you and yours...

Cheers

Mark

hi Mary, I have a roll bar for a standard 4/4 2 seater that needs a home if you need one (F.O.C.)

Hi Jim, that sounds very interesting!
I would like to chat to you about it.
John Bevan gave me your mobile number, when would it be best to call you?
