    1988 Dax project for sale

    Hi all

    Here is our Dax project for sale
    The car belonged to my dad who owned if for 10+ years.
    It was first on the road in 1988

    Rover 3.5 V8
    Holley 4 barrel carb
    Sd1 gearbox
    Has a full jag twin suspension rear end
    Coilovers all round which will need refreshing

    Story behind this one is

    My dad bought it around 12-15 years ago.
    He's put thousands into it over the years I have bags of history

    He got diagnosed with MS and they took his licence off him around about 4 years ago so he gave me the car, at the time it was running but needed a water pump

    It's sat in a garage since

    8 months ago I took it to a mate of mine
    We got the engine out
    Fitted brand new alt and starter
    EP pump with a lifetime warranty
    Changed plugs dizzy and got it running
    Adjusted timing as for some reason it was out
    Bought a new rad and fan to fit

    Plan then was to remove the body to repaint
    & to paint the chassis too so it was mint

    I haven't got the money to finish the project right now and it's killing me with it being such a family orientated project..

    To finish it will need in my opinion
    New brake discs n pads due to age
    Coilovers rebuilding as they're looking old
    Repaint 100%
    Interior finishing

    The car runs and drives it has nos installed a while ago and was never used due to my dad becoming ill at the time, so we sold the nos kit but we need to take the adaptor plate off of the carb as it leaks fuel right now.. easy to sort just needs this plate removing.

    I can deliver it if needed

    I am open to offers around the 13k mark?

    Pictures to be added when I figure out how to

    It's easiest if you can host the pictures on Photo bucket and then link them to here.

    Hi Connor, you don't say in your write up if the car is registered correctly as a Dax or not?
    It will make a difference to your sale.
