I'm breaking a Nova SR that's been sat on my drive for a year. It's got 2L GTE brakes (rusty discs) powered by a mk3 astra 16v sport master cylinder and servo, GSi bumpers, electric window and central locking bits, strut brace, smoked tail lights, 15" fox evo 5's in an anthracite style colour (fair amount of tread left on two of the tyres), and has lowered springs and uprated dampers.



I'm after £400 for the engine (with all ancilleries) and gearbox. It's a 1.3 SR block with a port polished 1.2 head and an F13 gearbox. It has twin 40 Webber carbs (no filters), Irmscher inlet manifold, i believe a 285° Piper camshaft, adjustable vernier pulley, KP pistons, and ARP rod bolts. It had just over a grands worth of work on it by a company called 'Jam Sport' in Northampton last summer, replacing a failed headgasket, skimming the head, rebuilding the carbs, fitting the cam (replacing the 300° that was in there), and tuning it on their rolling road. I have a receipt for this work. The rolling road printout is below:





The previous owner claimed that the engine had a misfire when it came back from Jam Sport, i haven't driven the car so i don't know the nature of the misfire. I believe it is apparent at full throttle and high revs. The engine has been sitting in the car since i bought it last year, i intended to use the shell for a project and sell the engine, but i ended up using a different shell altogether so the car's just been sitting. I have started it very occasionally to move it around the drive, but that was very occasionally.

I also have a pair of unpainted non-genuine front wings, slightly scratched.

Parts that cannot be posted must be collected from Milton Keynes, or i can meet half way in exchange for petrol costs.

I haven't heard from Boundy, and i really can't wait so the car is now being broken.

Festerfly - £40 for the G-max set if you're still interested. Let me know as soon as possible so i can get them off for you.

Yep with the dampers, front struts, top mounts, associated bolts, rubber spring seat thingy at the back etc. £40 is as low as i can go, i need these bits gone really soon so i'm pricing most things low.

I can have them off for you this evening if you want them?

I'm after a GM 3.2 V6 if you've got one laying around, but i don't need any cav bits.

Thanks matey. :D

The interior has been stripped out except for the seats and dashboard. The drivers seat has an extremely worn bolster. Dashboard has seen better days. £30 for the seats, or £20 for just the passenger seat which isn't badly worn. £15 for the dash.

Thanks anyway - if anyone else has an unpainted (matt grey finish) GSI front bumper then let me know, cash or swap for a colour coded pair of white ones
