Quad GT, I am guessing you were kidding about a chassis for your car. But if I was younger and in better health, I would build you a chassis for that vehicle.

I've had a couple of people interested at $20k, so it looks like that is the fair price. fwiw

There is a design feature that I incorporated into the chassis that I would like to mention - the ability to use multiple different powertrains. The chassis accepts a k member that bolts in with 4 bolts. Unbolt one powertrain and bolt another in. Before health became an issue, I had planned at least 2 different assemblies - the original NorthStar and a w41 quad 4 setup. But the capability is there for many combinations - 3.4 v6, supercharged v6, small block chevy, etc. Hope there is enough info here to understand.

strange things are happening. I can't take trade in's as it defeats my purpose to downsize, but strangely enough I've had 2 buyers that wanted to trade as partial payment T Bucket roadsters. Are all the T Bucket guys wanting to move up to NorthStar powered 550 roadsters? ;-)

sprng is here and its roadster weather. this car offers the freedom of a motorcycle along with the ability to carry two.

as I continue to downsize, I have an engine to sell. Back in 1997 when I started my northstar projects I got a chance to get a 97 northstar engine with just 7 miles on it. I picked it up since I thought having a low mileage spare was wise. I no longer need the spare so I am offering it for $1700. It comes with a wheeled dolly and lifting bar. email me for a picture
