A shameless bit of self-promotion but I have decided to sell my November '75 SR project.

A real wrench for me because it would have been a keeper when complete as I wouldn't have been able to replace it. After this years VBOA show I have come to realise that, given the exceptional quality of the cars that are out there now, I am better off spending my time and money detailing and perfecting the three I already have to full show standard rather than spreading my resource over 4 cars, none of which will ever be complete to the standard I want them.

I didn't list on the forum on the basis that most of us probably already have a project or two on the drive (!!) but obviously if anyone wants to get in touch direct then I would be delighted to talk about a caring home for LVV.

Ohhhh you tease same plate as my first Manta, which  was an SR on a P plate, mine was a 76 though. Might not be to everyone's taste but I love the colour :rolleyes:

Same problem as most though garage full and not really got started on mine, wonder if the Mrs would mind her Corsa being booted out of the car port :ph34r:

I hope you find a good home as that will be a beauty when done.  

I so nearly put a buying fever bid in :D

Thanks Terry, I do hope it finds the right home. I love the colour too, I had planned to do the bonnet in black as that was, I think, and option on them which would have made it look well good!

Gotta be honest I have turned it over but not had it running or driven it. Its all there though and the engine looks like a reco lump so it hopefully has more life in it yet. 

Had a few texts from the eBay ad already so if  you are up for it let me know. Obviously I would like it to go to a club member for renovation in a perfect world.

Me too, Hope you get it otherwise I'm going to end up with 2 that I have very little time to work on and a very unhappy Mrs :ph34r:

Managed to get a bit of time for rust removal yesterday from the inner wings and was chomping at the bit to do more but then the real world kicked in again :rolleyes:
