I’ve been pretty brutal on kit cars that look like they are fast/fun, but have the performance figures of a Prius (see Volkswagen powered kit cars et al). However, it isn’t the ACTUAL zero-to-60 performance that is important, but the experience. You want that car that makes you feel like a kid again, and that might involve a Jaguar V12 attached to a tube frame chassis in an aluminum fake GTO body. Find this 1965 Ferrari 250 GTO replica bidding on ebay for $6,100 reserve-not-met with a few hours to go, located in Youngsville, NC.
From the seller:
Started this car with a customer who ended up running into some health problems so we decided to sell.
It is not an exact replica of a 250 GTO. It has a custom tube chassis started, not finished, with a ford nine inch housing and axles with a four link. Front is mustang 2 with tubular control arms, manual rack, coil overs and disc brakes.
The engine is a jaguar v12 out of a good running car with a custom bell housing and tremec manual transmission.
There is no flywheel or clutch with this sale but can be bought through a reputable company. Carbs are a custom set up with six individual carbs with custom manifolds and throttle linkages with air cleaners.
The wheels i had custom made for the car. They are 15 x 8 with a 3” backspace in the rear and a 15 x 7 for the front to give it that staggered look. Tires are 275/60 r15 and 215/65 r15. Three soike spinners. Rims are 50 spoke.
We hope to sell to someone who appreciates all the work that went into it so far. I can do additional work to move it further along.
