Correct me if I'm wrong, but a 1961 Aurelia !!!   Plus the spare engine is definitly not a 2.5 so not correct for the model for sale.

Spare engine looks like a Flaminia item - rocker covers screwed down at the edges, not on top.  Seller clearly not very knowledgable.

If the car has been off the road for a long time (which I imagine is the case looking at the engine bay) then the engine will certainly need a thorough examination as at the very least the liners will have dropped leading to almost certain head gasket failure +++?
So an engine rebuild should be factored inn as well as everything else. Nevertheless will it sell at this price as B20 'projects' which are pretty much complete seem to be increasingly few and far between.

Its again a buyer beware situation, as pointed out by those in the know, its one thing restoring a car but then the added time and huge cost of sourcing additional parts, engine, gearbox etc, means this then is just a cobbled together car, lacking the true authenticity most people would insist on.

Interesting to hear if anyone has a look at it and can report back to the forum.

The price of this project is on par with the prices recently achevied by Aurelia projects at auction.
If you were to restore it properly you would have to rebuild the engine and at the very least replace the inner and outer sills plus how ever much of the floor pan needs renewing. The job is only worth doing if you do it properly......... you can't take shortcuts with Aurelias.

bruciebonuz, if you are looking for a non-repayment loan, why not sweeten it with interest?

Looks an interesting project for someone (not me!)
