Widow of builder selling this. She claims she posted her before, so this might be a repeat. She says she must sell "immediately." $5000 beginning bid, "reserve not met."
I make no judgement on this car, just saying it's on eBay.

Okay, here's most everything I can tell you. I am the widow of the man that built the car. It was not made from a kit. The space frame chassis was constructed of 1” square 16 gauge steel tubing. All TIG welded. The original was 40" wide, but he built it a little wider for comfort.
The nose and front fenders are fiberglass, the rest metal. It sat for four years while he couldn't drive it. The carburetor has been cleaned out and it runs well. I've had it on the road this week.
From his notes: the engine is a 93 Saturn twin cam, the transmission and wheels are from a 81 Toyota Cressida, the rear and brakes from a 76 Toyota Corolla, the master cylinder is a Girling 3/4 TRS, power brakes Girling AHCS.
The only defect is a small crack in the windshield. The weight is 1420 pounds.
The title is clear and in my name. It is not presently registered. The photo taken on concrete was taken last week.
A friend who is 6'4" says that there is plenty of leg room.
