now my 7 is up and running the melos which was bought as a substitute just in case can now go

i bought it as a just finished restoration by a rallycross mechanic a couple of years ago.

It has a fresh ( less than 100 miles) 2.1 pinto on a single carb coupled to a type 9 gearbox and an atlas axle. the guy literally finished the restoration and engine build and i drove it 80 miles home without issue and parked it up.
it has been started regularly and driven around the yard to keep it moving. it has 6 brand new trials remoulds and a cracking rack on the back for the two spares. it has the roof but no doors. ive added electronic ignition and have the dash out simplifying the wiring. I ve taken the exhaust from underneath and had a system built that exits the side of the engine bay and runs on the outside on the drivers side finishing just in front of the rear wheel.
its no concours winner but would tidy up or ideal as is for trials or even better a Valentines gift for the love of your life ;)
i have the v5  it does not have an MOT its on a Q plate.
im asking 2k and am fairly firm thats strong for a melos but the money is in the engine box and axle which are much in demand from escort rally boys.

I am oop North just off M62 Junction 21 ( close to where the motorway lanes separate as it goes over the Pennines.. ) available to view anytime, any day but no electric in storage so daylight viewing strong recommended  07784798710
