Plus 2 in parts and more

PostPost by: Ross Robbins » Mon Nov 21, 2016 11:47 pm

I have agreed to purchase a Plus 2 that has been refurbished and placed on a new Spyder chassis with a Zetec engine / transmission and all running gear. As a part of that purchase, I am acquiring a bunch of stuff that became surplus in building the Zetec +2 that I am offering to the forum prior to listing on eBay if these things are not wanted here:
1. The complete chassis from the original car (frame, engine, transmission, wheels and tires)
2. An additional +2 (sold to me as a complete car minus engine - I have never inventoried all the boxes. As you see all the body parts are present (I'm told the rear wind shield is now unobtainable).
3. A Spyder frame bought from Scotland just before the newer chassis that accommodates the Z Tech came out.

So ....that's one full body, 2 rolling chassis (one with big valve engine ), and an extra Spyder frame.

I will be picking all this up on Saturday November 26, 2016 in Charleston, SC USA and taking it back to Colorado Springs, CO in a rental box truck, so if you are interested in any or all of this and are between those two cities, I can include delivery to your door. This is a one-time offer. Once I get back to Colorado, shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer.

What a great find Ross. Did you buy the yellow S4 as well?

Totally different expression in its face :lol:

To Mark Kempson: No Mark It was not for sale but I got everything around it plus the Zetec Plus 2 and I don't need any of it except the Zetec Plus 2 :oops: :oops:

To The Veg: I have a previous request for the chassis from MBell so let me get back to you after he and I talk. Can you please email me at the above address instead of PM as it is not working for me. Thanks.

Ross,

What a screaming deal!!! i know you have an interested party near me in the Atlanta area, but if I had the space or did not have one neighbor in particular, I'd be all over this! Good luck with the new +2, and good luck with the additional +2. Hope to see you soon!
