FrankenRover on fleabay

Wow. Just wow.

From the ad.

1966 Land Rover (title in hand) It has had extensive work done to it. Some will like it and some won't.


It has a 2004 Pontiac front wheel drive v6 engine 3800 (recently rebuilt). Automatic transmission. All independent suspension from same Pontiac. Drilled/slotted rotters(under 2000 miles pads too), fairly new tires (about 2500 miles on them and one brand new spare tire). All Pontiac rims (5 matching). It halls butt and stops on a dime. Pretty light. Custom aluminum gas tank in the back (around 28 gallons) A unique vehicle. One of a kind. It gets looks every time I drive it. There's over 1,000 just in carbon fiber gauges. It has the custom windows that zip on for both sides. It has a CD player 4 speakers with sub (sounds great). I don't even want to think about how much money I have in this thing. ugh!

Fuel injection engine V6 3800 Pontiac. Yes, you can get a supercharger for this and it will roast the tires off. I think its fast enough. Its pretty light, mostly aluminum. I was going to have a custom Aluminum hood made, but that would run about 2-3 thousand. I just decided to end my financial misery by selling it. I had the whole 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GT engine cradle bolted on to the vehicle (its an all aluminum cradle).

This has 24 hrs of LeMons written all over it. Slap a cage in it and go racing.
