    Unfinished MK4 Complete Kit For Sale in Michigan

    It's with great sadness that I've decided to sell my unfinished MK4 Complete Kit. I purchased the kit in early 2017, but an unexpected move and an earlier than expected second child severely limited the amount of time I had to work on the car. With a third child in the works, we've decided it's better to put the dream on hold and start the project fresh when the family is a bit older.

    Anyway, the car is in the relatively early stages so would be great for someone who wants the full build experience at a discount. Many of the boxes haven't been touched (except for the inventory check). I purchased the kit for just under $24k after discounts and additionally purchased FR500 wheels w/ Mickey Thompson tires for about $1,200 when we had to move the car to the new house. I'll post pictures in the next couple of days, but basic details:

    - MK4 Roadster Complete Kit (invoice date: 2/16/17)
    - Moser 8.8 Rear End w/ 3-Link Deluxe Rear Suspension
    - Power Steering
    - Tall Leather Seat Upgrade
    - Powder Coating Chassis w/ Body Cut-Outs
    - 302/351 Engine/Trans Mounts
    - FFR GPS Gauge Set
    - Vinyl DAsh w/ Glovebox
    - Wind Wings
    - Driver Side Chrome Rollbar
    - Performance Wilwood Rear Brakes
    - Overriders

    All reasonable offers will be considered, although we won't be giving the kit away. Just want the garage space back for the next decade before I start the build again

    I am interested in purchasing your kit. I live in N. California and do not know what company could be used to ship this type of item? Do you have any ideas on shipping?

    I'd recommend contacting Stewart Transportation. They are the experts when it comes to shipping FFR kits unassembled.

    As of Sept 1 it was still available...not sure after then. I considered this, good deal if you do it yourself.

    Hey everyone - Sorry for the slow reply! The car is still available and I'm ready to drop the price to a firm $17k. If it doesn't sell at that over the next month or so I'm going to store it and get my garage back before the holidays and winter

    Thanks!

    He lives not to for from me, and I went out and looked at this kit when it first went for sale. It is in roller and not to far along that you can't make it your own. I thought it was in real nice shape and a great price for the kit. I kind of wished I had bought it at the time. I ended up getting a 25th kit instead. I would have saved a bunch of $$$$$$$. But like I said real nice for someone.
