    Hey Guys,

    Cant believe im writing this but circumstances are changing and i need additional funds so unfortunately i need to sell my FD, as the car is currently not running and on the road I have to advertise as a project but only a small amount of things need doing, I could just use a quick sale.

    As some of you might have seen my build thread I got an rx7 fd rolling shell from a friend about a year ago. The body is wide arched, metal wide arches at that, no fibreglass. The car currently sits on koni coilovers but it is also plumbed for full air ride suspension, all solenoids etc, fitted and the air tank and 2 small compressors will be included. The car has very recently had a full respray in black, the wheels are riverside trafficstar stm 3 piece splits 18 x 9 +11 front and 19 x 11 +14 rear with brand new continentals all round, these alone are a small fortune. The wide arches have been formed around these specific wheels and look stunning when sitting low.

    car has fuel and a spark but isnt running, after having been working on it I have a feeling that might be injectors, i really dont want to sell her but needs must

    £7000 ono

    Probably be better breaking it to get anywhere near £7k.

    That's a crazy figure.

    That's what I was thinking...... Non runner, no proof of compression..... CRAZY WHAT!

    Don't get me wrong it looks great, is clean has a great selection of parts but I think someone would have to be crazy to take it for the asking price as a non runner, with wiring problems, no spark and other odds and sods.... I've seen nice clean running examples on FD:UK up for less and not sold... they were broken as a result of non sale.... such a shame though!

    Can't you keep it get it working, enjoy it for a bit and then sell a runner?

    try building it for less than that price even to this point TABZ wheels and tyres alone are around the 5k mark and im not going to put a car together just to end up taking it apart

    hence why the advert is titled project, if i didnt have time restrictions this wouldnt be for sale would be finished and used then eventually for sale for much more, the time, effort, parts etc easily exceeds this price, engine is complete and have no doubt it will run soon if i can get to it, could easily just be a faulty CAS. and when i say wiring problems the back left side and brake light arent working mate so not a massive job

    regardless what everyones elses car is priced at or condition of the car this is the price of this one and the photos show the condition minus some parts

    Sorry mate didn't mean to rattle your nest.

    I just don't think you're being realistic.
    The rx7 seem to be consistently messed about with, modded to individual taste, unrealistic build aspirations that ultimately end up as breakers or unfinished projects.

    There are so many of them it's untrue.

    Why would anybody try building one to your said spec or pay you £7k for your car, when you can buy a perfectly complete, and good running car with a decent spec for similar money that has had a rebuild.

    Your car is so individually modded, and not to everybody's taste, hence my breaker comment.

    Personally love the rx7, but most look gash, and are easy getting there with the nova/saxo modified scene.

    Just saying

    If the wheels and tyres are around the £5k mark then sell them separately.
    The car looks like a nice example and would be worth £4k all day long with normal wheels.
    Then you've just made yourself £2k for a few hours work.

    Also time effort and money put into a car rarely equal the selling price

    If you need some cash I'd be interested in the FC in the background. :)

    what do you mean you live in the sticks, its only stranraer FFS.
    Your asking crazy money for a car that has no proof the engine is even a runner.
    if you definately wont break then you at least need to get the engine running and tersted before anyone would even consider that kind of price.
