    Default 2001 Birkin S3

    I never thought this day would come, but it is time to sell my Birkin. I just don't get enough opportunities to drive it here on the North Olympic Peninsula. This is a 2001 BIY component built car with 23,000 miles. I've been its caretaker for over ten years, and upgraded nearly every system in the car. When initially tuned, it made 178 HP on the wheel dyno. Sadly, I've never tracked this amazing car.

    $26,000/OBO

    Engine:
    ZX3 Zetec block
    Ford Racing Head
    Crower stage 3 cams
    Eagle Rods
    Probe 10:1 pistons
    CFM 65mm billet throttle body
    High output Bosh injectors
    Raceline oil pan
    Raceline water rail
    Birkin sump guard
    High output radiator fan
    remote oil filter
    Emerald K3 ECU

    Transmission:
    typical Ford T-9 box
    Fidanza flywheel
    Quaife ATB differential

    Suspension:
    Woody's radius rod rear end
    Birkin wide front end kit
    4 pot Outlaw brakes in front
    .750 brake cylinder
    Hawk brake pads

    Interior:
    lowered floor sections
    Birkin “competition” seats with padded inserts
    5 point harnesses
    removable steering wheel
    Mirrorsforsevens wide mirror

    The car has a full hood with side curtains and a half-hood (Birkini). I also have a spare wheel carrier and a bolt-on rear cargo rack that go with the car.

    Potentially available, as well, is a 7x14 enclosed trailer with ramp gate and interior tie-downs.

    Beautiful car (and great price)! And that's a lotta hp for a Zetec, but consistent with your mods. What is engine's redline? I'd love it if mine made that much power! Good luck with the sale. Ideal time of year to do so.

    I set the rev cut-out at 7200rpm in the Emerald.

    Also, I forgot to add that I have a set of corner weighting scales available with the car.

    Hello,

    Is your car still available? I'm looking for a Birkin like yours.

    Randall was gracious enough to let me drive this car when I was considering which route to go. It is an excellent car with all of the development issues resolved. The availability of the trailer is a real plus. It’s just the right size.
