High Quality Low Mileage 1986 T-Type Roller Or Part Out

OK. We’ll try this again...

As most know, this car has been “sold” more than once. It’s still in my garage. I’ll either sell it as you see it (and complete with everything I have for it): $16,500 OBO or with various components removed (obviously, the price drops if you don’t need some pieces such as the Chevy rad or Chevy ignition board).

I’ll also part it out. But following a bunch of turmoil which I really don’t wish to rehash, along with follow-up conversations with a number of well-respected folks on this board, the consensus is that I should only part it out if the body sells first or if I have a significant amount of parts spoken for. Essentially these folks suggest I take your name and place you on a list for various pieces. Once the body leaves, or if a large bunch of components are spoken for, I’ll “officially” sell things. I think that’s a good compromise.

Here are some pix of the car:











The full build of the car can be found here:


If you don't see sufficient photos in the build, please contact me and I'll send you more images.

While the car can be purchased in any form, here’s how I’ll split it up (all parts are new, aside from the body, which is 18,750 mile perfect). At the moment, I won’t split up the pieces any further (for example strip parts other than what is listed from the body). Everything, aside from the basic body shell is New. And Please Note: All Prices In Canadian Dollars:

• Basic Body: 18,750 original miles. Includes Borgeson manual steering conversion, aluminum heater delete, pro-notched and braced rear frame rails, etc. (there’s $1500 in quality chassis work alone). Extremely nice and well-done body. Original factory lacquer and perfect burgundy interior. Gorgeous body and frame. You have to figure out how roll it out of the shop! Please Note: As I mentioned above, I will not split up the body any more than what is listed. Thanks. $7500 obo.

wow..16k for a roller ttype?:confused:

Obviously you didn't read the add or look at all the work thats been done to the car :rolleyes: Nice exterior and interior !! Then try an add up the parts.. never mind the labor involved. Hmmm This was an original 18k car "Graybeard" bought from Florida !! Was it one of yours :p
....You seem to be quite the wheeler dealer with the "gem's" you were tryin to unload down there. Guess this site wasn't "easy picking" for ya to move some cars/parts for ya. You should have bought just this roller an unloaded the "NEW" engine ya had for sale :p
