unfinished 429 Big Block mkIV for sale in VA
Well folks, it comes with a heavy heart that I have come to list my roadster for sale. I joined this site, and recently started posting on it in the hopes that it would light a spark back in me to finish this car, but at the age of almost 70..I find myself struggling quite a bit. I took delivery of this kit on new years eve of 2014 and immediately went to town on this car. After awhile, I had to take a few breaks from working on it..and have basically taken 8 months off of working on it since delivery because of my own health, and my wife's health. I don't feel as though I have the wherewithal to complete this massive project.
With that being said, here is some info on the build.
The car has been most of the way assembled, and driven for 4 miles minus the door fitment, trunk and hood fitment. The wiring for all the lights have been tested, but never installed. No body work has been done on the body yet. There are a few odds and ends to tidy up, but its essentially ready to do fitment of the doors, install latches, sand, and paint.

Stock style pistons

Eastwood insulation under the carpeting
All the carpet edges were heimed

I have invested over $60,000 into this car so far, I don't think an asking price of $35,000 is unreasonable when pretty much all thats left is body work.
If needed, I can deliver the car to you if you're within a few hundred miles from me via enclosed trailer.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via phone call at 757-812-3167.
