Ride: EF waggin - gli/XR/ghia

Location: Sydney
NSW, Australia

Buggy (large go-kart type thing). Unfinished project. Well made by middle-aged man (who must be some kind of mechanic or something, by the look of the buggy!).

Has 4 wheels and tyres, steering wheel, gear knob, gearbox, transaxle, diff, roll cage/frame, and front end. I think it may also have a drivers seat and floor, and a couple of other things....Needs an engine!

My brother bought it for a case of beer a while ago, and he and a friend did some welding and cut out the rust. Since then it's just been sitting there in the long grass, and my mum says IT HAS TO GO!

Will let it go for free to anyone who'll come and take it away!

Located in Arcadia, 40mins NW of Sydney CBD.

hehe
It's a fair bit bigger than a go-kart, but if I just said "buggy", people might think I meant a golf buggy or something!

It's kind of like a rally-cart or something...

I'll post some pics some time next week, or anyone's welcome to come over and check it out.

Maybe you could have it freighted down? Since it's free, maybe it'd be worth the cost? I'd happily send you heaps of photos of it so you could decide, if you were interested in freight.
