    For Sale MK IV # 8483 Colorado Springs, CO

    Thanks for all the interest - It sold yesterday (8/14/2017)

    For Sale FFR MK IV Roadster # 8483 located in Colorado Springs, CO

    The build is in the go-kart stage with full running chassis. It requires minor finishing sheet metal and body work. I started this build in 2014, in Nebraska and subsequently married and moved to Colorado. I am just not able to finish it. Below is a listing of options and upgrades. The engine and rear center section were built by Mike Fortes, Fortes Parts Connection. The engine and transmission were professionally installed and tuned as well as four wheel alignment. I have pictures and video for serious inquiries as well as a contact with a Classic Automobile Restoration Shop in Omaha that can comment on the quality of the build.
    Over $45,000 invested - asking $28,500 OBO. Email - [email protected]

    Have you considered hiring Mark Dougherty, The Traveling Builder, because I'm sure he could get you out of the ditch and back on the road?

    My recommendation is to not give up on your dream unless you are 100% sure that selling your car won't bug you in the end, meaning the rest of your life. My chassis is number 8,515 and I had some life issues too like my oldest daughter got married, youngest daughter graduated college, tried to chop my fingers off, one of which had to be reinstalled, son graduated from high school and now just went off to college.

    My point is I'm where you are and am still plugging away so don't give up now, things are just about to get really fun.

    Never Give Up, Never Surrender!
