1978 (T) Dax Tojeiro NEW SMALL BLOCK CHEVY ENGINE. NOW SOLD. CALL TO SELL YOUR PERFORMANCE CAR.
This is a very special Dax Tojeiro and, though its life started in 1978, it’s running gear and most major mechanical components are brand new.
Finished in the Alfa Romeo Rosso Corsa Red, this stunning iconic sports car looks fantastic with its period stripes on the bonnet and beautiful split rim alloys that are shod with modern yet retro styled Avon CR6ZZ.
The attention to detail is fantastic inside and out, even down to the genuine original Smiths gauges that have been calibrated to this car and a beautiful wood-rimmed Moto-Lita steering wheel. Even the carpets have been replaced.
The engine is a Small Block Chevy Unit that puts out a tire-blistering 355 BHP. Having covered sub 500 miles since its installation, this engine isn’t even run in! The engine alone cost £6,636.
