Bolwell 1962 Mark 4B Roadster, unfinished Project
"Up for sale is my unfinished project, a Bolwell MK4 roadster. I acquired this a few years ago, and despit the best intentions of completing the car, circumstances keep getting the better of me. Its time it went to a bolwell enthusiast with the time, knowledge and I dare say the connections to complete the car.
Offered for sale is
-a completely overhauled chassis (with suspension and steering) which has been re-welded to eliminate the brazed joints
-a complete set of moulds to manufacture a new body when car is complete (Pictured is the last body to come out of the moulds. Important: I do not have a body for this car, it was beyond repair, hence buying the moulds)
-holden suspension gear including a Banjo diff ready to accept gemini axles, gemini disks and adjustable wishbones
-original compliance plate and evidence of previous registration
Apart from making a new body the car requires the lower aluminium skin, the running gear, seats, pedal box and steering column.
It also requires coil over dampers to be be acquired and have appropriate mounts welded on to the chassis.
This is a chance to get an extremely solid base for a mk4 that has better suspension geometory than the original, is stiffer than the original and has the pedigree to make it a fine example of the real deal from a golden era of kit car motoring.
I am open to offers, and the first reasonable offer will see this car sold. Having said that it's not in my way (yet) so ridiculous low ball offers will not be met with enthusiasm (if you must low ball - email me. it saves me having to offend by voice :) )
Prefer contact by phone, but will receive and answer emails about twice a week.
Inspections by arrangement as the car is stored in a diferent area to the moulds.
Thanks for reading and hope to hear from this car's new owner soon!"
