This is a Kellison FV kit that was never assembled. The first owner hung the front beam, and just set the body up on top of the frame. He passed away about 40 years ago, and the whole shootin' match just sat in a storage container until about ten years ago.
Then, I got it, with the plan to put it together and do some Vintage Vee racing. But, other stuff (aka divorce) kinda' got in the way.
So, I've decided to let it go. It's just been too long, and I've kind of 'staled out' on the deal. In fact, I've got so apathetic that I didn't even bother to clean stuff up for pics.
What you get:
Frame... as originally constructed. Will probably need tabs welded to mount things like fuel tank, body, etc.
Steering column w/ old 3 spoke wheel
Bodywork... all there; there's a couple places on corners of body tub where my friend "Dave the drunk" bumped into it and cracked it
I wasn't able to get it to show up in pics, but you'll want to get some resin and cloth and patch it.
Transaxle w/ rear radius rods
This is enough to put a rolling chassis together, with a core motor. But, you'll have to mount the body, and essentially build the car. The kit was never really assembled, so you're starting with something that doesn't have 40+ years of patches, hacks, and 'cowboy' fixes. You can put it together the RIGHT way the FIRST time.
I had a running dual-port core engine that I planned on using as a 'beater' to sort the car out with. Unfortunately, the cover came off it in the shed where it was stored... so who knows what's up with it now. Maybe the lower end is still good; maybe it's a giant paperweight.
I also picked up a couple other old VW engines (I think one is a 40HP 1200 which would be right for vintage vee); they're just cores. There's also some spare parts I've acquired by grabbing everything VW that I could pick up for cheap/free (some brake parts, generators, etc). Some of it is going to be useable; some not.
Anyway, I'm looking for $2000 cash, or trade for a street bike project.
