This Frazer Nash kit car is powered by Triumph GT6 running gear beneath a professionally finished fiberglass body, with a winged hood ornament thrown in for good measure. You can accessorize these kits like a Barbie Jeep with multiple tops, flank-mounted spare wheels and more. You’ll have plenty of disposable income for such trinkets after dropping pocket change on this negotiably priced cheapskate. Find this 1934 Frazer Nash kit with GT6 power in Whispering Pines (shhh), NC for $2,300 via craigslist.
Triple-digit horsepower seems appropriately inappropriate for what is essentially a motorized soap box. And yet, a curvaceous GT6 somewhere is without its 103-horsepower inline-6, manual transmission, and rear suspension. The exact suspension architecture is unspecified and is only referred to as “independent.”
The lone interior glimpse shows a spartan yet presentable interior. To get there, the kit manufacturers included postage stamp-sized doors with handles, of all things. Look, anyone with a 30-inch inseam could clear this car’s beltline even if the windowless doors weren’t scalloped. Without a windscreen or roof of any sort, there are countless means of ingress, the least heroic of which is operating a tiny silver handle and aiming your posterior at the thin seat cushion.
This Frazer Nash replica is offered by a true car enthusiast who is also unloading a 1992 XJS V12 convertible and a 1947 MGTC due to an ongoing battle with cancer. We expect the stories about those three cars – and goodness knows how many others – would be worth a longer, more relaxed purchase process with this seasoned motorist.

PhiLOL actually likes the tuna here, but abhors structural rust. Save the manuals.
