Topic: Glory awaits! $750, Southeast Arizona

Yes, the Borgward Isabella Coupe is still for sale again. This time with a much more reasonable price.

What you get:
A running Borgward Isabella engine and transmission!
A working rear differential and axles.!
A working shifter with all four gears (and reverse!) on the column!
A quick disconnect steering wheel!
A Lemons-tech-passing roll cage (with extra reinforcement)!
A Fire suppression system! (the bottle is only good thru Dec 20)
A seat mount with sliders for a Kirkey seat!
A 16 Gallon Fuel cell with FOAM!
A couple of boxes of Borgward shit spare parts!
A Miata front subframe!
A Miata rear subframe with differential!
A Miata driveshaft!
Two sets of hood pins!
A set of expired belts that can be re-certified.

All wrapped in a glorious and self-satisfied Borgward Isabella Coupe shell that is race-ready-ish (it's basically in the same condition as it was at Inde at the end of February, but I'm going to keep the seat and the fancy belts unless you have a better idea).

The plan was to do an engine swap while upgrading to 4 wheel discs with the Miata stuff. What with COVID and boredom and such, I want to build something else.

What I get? $750 plus or minus whatever you think is cool to trade.

Do you have pictures of the subframe install? You can pm me on Instagram if that works better.

It turns out that $750 is a bargain for a Borgward race car. Someone wants considerably more for this one:

Same engine, too:
