View Full Version : Gardner Douglas, GDJag Chassis + MK4 Body

18-02-20, 12:56 PM
Gardner Douglas GDJag Chassis and MK4 Body. Rolling chassis built to a very high standard.

The chassis is complete with shortened wishbones and drive shafts which enable to deep dish rear wheels to be fitted. A profesionally refurbished 2.88:1 Powerlok diff is fitted to the car. All brake calipers and rear hubs and been fully refurbished and plated to a high standard by Wards Engineering who are renowned for their work. The chassis is complete with a Lexus 3UZ V8 Engine which is becoming much more widely used due to their availability, price and tunability. You can get a great sounding, fast and reliable car at a fraction of the cost of an LS engine. The chassis originally had mountings to accept a Ford engine. These have been adapted to suit the Lexus, however they have been adapted in such a way that they still mainting the original Ford mounting positions so that either Lexus or Ford can be used.

I would prefer to sell as one full package but may be willing to split and sell the chassis and body seperately.

I would love to be able to complete the car build and get this on the road but unfortunately I no longer have the time or financial means to be able to continue with it. I am looking for £19,000 for the kit which should just recover the money that I have already put into this project but I am also open to sensible offers.
