POTENTIALLY RUINOUS PURCHASE
Previous | 123 | Next

1987 Testarossa with a Koenig kit (body only sadly). Down side is the engine is in bits 'to change the clutch' according to the previous owner. Now I'm no expert on Ferrari engines but I'm pretty sure you don't need to remove and strip the heads to do a clutch :shock:

However I have employed some evonomics to ensure that the purchase makes sense :lol:

Cheers,
Bryn.

As a man with three 355's in various states of repair I think your thread title is slightly misleading :D

Done.

Bryn is possibly the best person on here, maybe best person full stop :lol:

Pics?

What a champ 8).

Rev is correct, of course

Japan - haven't got it yet, it's a tender process with result tomorrow.

Personally I don't like the Koenig kit at all, I think it looks much better with the side strakes and black front splitter.

But if it had them I'd have to keep it so probably a good thing ;)

Cheers,
Bryn.

I love the idea of Bryn not being put off by pictures of a Ferrari engine, in pieces, in a bucket.

He's thinking "It is just a complicated Fiesta.."

What could possibly go wrong? :lol:

I suppose I does not have the engine in the car photos - the upped suspension makes it look like an all-terrain Testarossa :lol:
Besides, a Testarossa is not that expensive to run / maintain as it's pretty reliable and old fashioned; the main cost source is to need to remove the engine to change the cambelts, but I guess that's not an issue in your case...

I'm sure the Koenig required wider rims to fill them arches too. Particularly at the rear.

Nice (mental) purchase though Bryn. 8)

There's actually about 10 buckets of engine bits :lol:

But I figure the worst case scenario is buy a complete engine from Douglas Valley Brakers down the road and stick that in 8)

It's a business, honest! But my 3 hour commute to my 'proper' job allows me to run it my way rather than purely for profit, which is much more fun :D

You only live once anyway!

Cheers,
Bryn.

Cheaper to buy a pristine car from Verdi !

Looking at the height of the engine cover (the square bit) it looks like a US spec car. Plus it's also LHD.

EDIT - lacks the US bumpers though...
