Laurie Pettit 1776 Bus motor TURN KEY

Post by sinclair » Wed Jul 04, 2018 11:30 am

No more than 10k miles on my 1776 from one of the UK's most respected builders. With twin 40 webers offline cooler and filter, stainless vintage speed exhaust and new tinware throughout.
Complete turnkey unit its in my bus now so try before you buy!
Looking for £3500. I'm going back to stock so may take an engine in PX.

No details though I bought the bus through a good ssvc couple so maybe still available. Not rebuilt, no leaks and pulls like a train. Just doesn’t suit my life anymore. Going stock :)

I’ll try the previous owner. Quite understand your angle on provenance, but I won’t be reducing the price.
