    I talked to the gentleman selling this car early on. He was gracious and communicative, and sent me a number of pix. The car is very well assembled and looks great. The problem is this: It is essentially an old-style Brunton V6 chassis equipped with a honking LS V8 motor and Tremec trans. This old-school chassis is equipped with outboard front shocks and a solid rear axle, and does not feature those aerodynamic F1-style inboard front coilovers which are so delightfully adjustable. It does not feature the modern IRS design including excellent Cadillac diff that Brunton developed in the early 2010's. It is a transition model between the supercharged V6 Bruntons with the hood scoop (the original model) and the current LWB V8 model. At the time, the gentleman's asking price was equivalent to the market value of a used latest-gen Brunton, and that is why I broke off communications. All of that said, the car, like all the earlier V6 Bruntons, is very capable, and with the V8, very fast. Hoever, due to the old-style chassis, and relative to the new car, performance will suffer over broken or bumpy roads and at high speeds. The car is also an SWB design. I like the Brunton SWB's because they look more authentic - more Sevenesque. But they do not handle as well as the LWB Bruntons, and thus are less popular among Brunton cognoscenti.

    Not looking to hijack but just to add a word of caution, as an owner of a set of Intetrim seat (shipped over at great experience) the craftsmanship on these seats (well mine) is crap
    The seats look great in the photos but what a hack job on the finished product if I was in the UK I would have refused these on delivery.

    Okay guys... Sold. I finally broke down and bought it. After seeing it back in February.. and being "harassed" by the local mob here.. I couldn't stop thinking about it. Lost 10lbs and called the owner and we worked a deal. Working on getting it shipped to North Texas (hopefully before Thanksgiving).

    For those of you on here... any suggestions on adding a windshield wiper "system" to this..? Texas has a "safety" inspection with registration and one of the points is operation of the windshield wipers. I'm not sure if one of the those "manual" wiper systems or the single motor type, either from an ATV would suffice. Thoughts...?

    Well done! Congratulations! Its great to see someone get out and live their dream!

    Do you need wipers? Can you take the windscreen off and say it is an aeroscreen car? no wipers needed. Its a really lazy idea but saves time.
