I would hold back at least 2K for unforeseen repairs.
That car has been setting and For Sale for at least 2 years.
The wiring looks a little edgy.
Hold fast, there have not been a lot of buyer jumping on it.

The rough sloppy idle could simply be due to the Webers themselves. I would pull those and quickly sell them to some unsuspecting person who believes they are the best carbs in the world. I'd replace them with a set of 40 Mikunis or Delorto DHLAs. Greg knows the DHLAs. That intake is rare as hens teeth. I've only seen one other in person. There are people who would spend a moderate fortune for one.

Interesting car, and cool find. I hope it works out.

Sorry, I find modern engine swaps revolting. Keep your G, R, or U series in your Roadster!

Yeah, I've only seen maybe 3 of those intakes in person. This actually looks like it was a pretty good buy for someone

You guys realize this thread is over a year old right?

I certainly do. But I remember this advertisement well.

Also, not often that a factory 1600 solex mani comes up for sale. Since Will bumped it, I was really curious who ended up with it!
