Re: Corty on Carsales

This car is still for sale? I went and had a look at it about a year ago, probably more. Its nice but take a careful look at the right hand rear in the first pic. Damage!

Also some damage on the rhs front of the car which you can just see in the third pic.

Nice of him to mention these things.

He told me the car was originally a 4 cylinder that had been converted to a 6 so keep that in mind too.

The thing sounded like a flaming v8, it was very loud and very throaty. But he took me for a spin in it and it went about as good as my stock log head 250 (with impco 200).

He said the reason it wasnt going well was because the "carby needs to be sorted"

Overall I walked away pretty dissapointed.
