Thanks, so another conversion, and another less than honest advert.

Bit sad, and too much money IMO.

V6.

What it costs, what it's worth? Suppose there is a relationship.

It's not a proper car, I would value it as such. It will sell though and someone will be happy with what they have. It looks like the restoration work done is of a good standard.

It doesn't come as a shock that folk are short on the truth with ads. It's just a gripe I havesmile

As a well restored Tuscan V6 with the wrong engine I would see it as 20k.

Having looked at the photos of the underside as a Tuscan V8 I would see a lot more re-engineering being required to make it a bit better. The work looks good but it has been built to a cost. There is a good argument to re-unite it with its V6 Engine with that sort of chassis spec it all looks very standard!!

Again It is frowned upon when I speak of values but their is 20k in that cars build..If a garage wasn't used in the supply of the labour

It looks a nice thing though and there aren't that many to choose from. If someone wants something badly enough then I am sure it will sell for somewhere in the middle acceptable to all

It isn't a V8 Tuscan though. Its a V6 Tuscan with a V8 engine fitted..Thats the rub and is misleading in the ad..naughty nono

I have seen this car in the flesh , looks every bit as lovely as the pictures make it look.
I brought a Chim rolling chassis from the advertisers dad. He seemed like a nice genuine chap , maybe they don't realise the "error" in the cars description in their ad and will make the correction now that it has been pointed out.
The advertiser has a nice LS7 powered mazda RX7 sprint car too.

Regardless of what it should or shouldn't have it is still a stunning car.

But still lovely. smile

Is it just the angle, or are those dials out of a Chimaera?

Well, yes James, but if you're going to imitate properly, you need to change the window frames and glass to 'one piece', like your proper V8 Tuscan has.

I'd rather have a real 3000S Turbo for £20k than an imitation V8 Tuscan for £38k (asking price wink )

And bond the body to the chassis!

I heard there might be a very nice 3000s Turbo on the market, are you tempted to add your fleet?

Yep, but there are people out there who will pay absolutely stupid money to buy a Tuscan....
