This is a 3.4 litre Essex V6 built 4 or 5 years ago for a customer of
ours, by the excellent Car Clinic (essexengines.com) in Lancashire. It has
covered around 25K miles since it was built. Unfortunately the body-shell
of his car has rotten around it, forcing him to break the car (or sell it
to us to do).
The engine uses the South
African crank, rods, pistons etc to make the 3.4 litre bottom end. Car
Clinic assemble this fully balanced etc. This unit has fast road heads and
a challenger 3 spec camshaft. Topping it off is the legendary Car Clinic
double carb intake using 2 38dgas carbs with a special progressive linkage
and air filter. The engine has alloy rocker covers. Also sports the alloy
timing kit inside.
We want £2000+vat takeaway.
This would take well over double that to build from new. we know because
we have done 2 that way this year !
