Ride: V8 EF Futura

Location: Adelaide CBD
SA, Australia

Hi all (remember me? lol)

Its becoming clearer by the day that i dont have the time to get this car going... had a chance to stop by the forums, so thought i'd gauge interest if anyone around Adelaide wants to pick it up...

Its probably appropriate to note that this car was supercharged (Powerdyne, 7.5PSI) for about 18 months of its life. Sold the blower kit after getting defected.

The car is defected - so i can only sell it for wrecking purposes. Would prob best suit someone looking for a V8 conversion. Not willing to seperate parts sorry.

Why aint it roadworthy?

- Was defected for 'too low'. Now has standard springs in it.
- Bunch of other stuff that i would have also had to fix to get roadworthy:

*front seatbelts stuffed
*leak from sump gasket under timing cover
*driver's seat has the busted rail that makes it wobble

What else is wrong with it?

*TFI module on its way out - intermittent ignition problems
*no power steering pump (sold it with blower kit)
*radiator, thermos etc are sitting in the boot lol
*needs new rubber fuel lines from fuel rail to metal lines on chassis (went with blower kit)
*needs an airbox + snorkel (sold when i had blower fitted)
*battery prob F**k from sitting around
*rad hoses prob need some love

So what's actually GOOD about this thing?

*pretty much stock apart from cat-back exhaust
*engine done approx 190,000km and mechanically sound, aside from leak/TFI/PS etc. Will run fine once that s**t is sorted out.
*trans/diff in ok condition
*body has typcial EF dents and scratches but generally in ok condition

Any questions? Will provide pics etc if people are interested.
