Re: Anyone know of any 166 supers for sale ?
I guess you never really know the previous history of a car. I get quite depressed when I see how much 166 Supers go for these days. I paid £4k for mine over a year ago. But then again, it had a grands worth of cambelt, pulleys, water pump, plugs and other items on the service bill plus a three month warranty which I cashed in on for a couple of items.
On the whole, the car feels really good now that I changed the clutch and flywheel. The clutch is so much lighter and the car is a joy to drive. I think a couple of new wishbones on the front and we are there.
Anyway, going back to my point, there is some dubious paintwork issues on the car even though the HPI is perfectly clear and there is no sign of major damage to the chassis or structure. I think it's had some dents removed at some stage. This is something I will address by getting the doors blown over at some point to make it virtually mint. Trouble is, how far do you go for a car that is probably only worth £3k once fitted with the bodykit!?
Rockin' all over the road!
