    Did the 1200 cost less than 32 grand? Wouldn't you just use all of the 35 suspension as is and copy the mounts over to the ute? Did the Utes have a chassis? Will the engine and transaxle fit within the wheelbase of that jigger? (EDIT: yep should fit fine, should only need to shorten the shafts by 200mm. you can cut and glue carbon fibre tailsahfts right?)



    Should chirp second anyway

      Subbed - this should be epic

        Interesting project!

        The VIN for the R35 on the listing looks very odd to me. All those zeros...

        Did you confirm that it's all legit?

        Google tells me this is what an R35 VIN should look like.

          Looks like an import vin. Possibly a jap spec R35?

            It is a 2008 so import, it had a pic of it up when it was for sale with compliance in like 2012 and was a 2008 car.

            I mean who cares it is a stat anyway it is only good for parts.

            Car will be full tube chassis so the 1200 will only be a shell sitting on top. I'm just thinking of a fancy way to do the rear stays so it doesn't look retarded.

            All suspension will be custom I won't use any of the arms or any of the uprights etc that be all custom.

              Surely the widths of the two vehicles would be incompatible???

                are you planning a hard lid style of cover for the tub to cover up all the tubes, diff's, uprights etc? or is hiding the engineering not the intent of this build?

                  Buy another 1200 ute for the centre section?

                      Nah I don't use any of the drive shafts and all new Sus geometry and arms so really you can make it any width, currently I have the wheels about 100mm out the guards

                      I will scan the guards at the end and make carbon flares for it but that is right at the end

                        Good lordy! I like where this is going!
                        1990 E30 BMW 318is - In progress!
                        1974 KE25 Corolla Coupe - So much rust...
                        1955 Matchless G9 - On the road and loving it!
                        1954 Matchless G80 - Because the one above runs too well so I need something more broken...
                        And a fucking 1962 Rover... Because that makes sense

                            So all I wanted it 1000hp and it based loosely on circuit not drag, this way I can have something never done before, be quick at the drags, 1000m, burnouts, "circuit" etc like you could do any event without being totally shit at all of them except 1.

                            Also if I have the time i can literally design the whole thing piece of piss, I do this stuff for industrial equipment this is just a little bit different. Also I can probably write some off on tax in r and d if I am smart.

                              This build is going to be all sorts of win!

                                I don't see how this can happen.
