Default Complete AW70 set-up

Swapping in an M47 so the AW70 will be available with prop, torque converter and everything to do an auto conversion, barring the radiator, if that takes your fancy. The box has about 190K on it and it's in perfect working condition.

Available after the weekend of the 13/14th of October. I'll be driving back from Devon with it so I'm happy to drop off along the way or I can hold on to it for a very short amount of time before 'er indoors separates that which makes me a man from the rest of my body. Otherwise it's going straight to scrap.

Cheers

Alex

An endless list of fixes and mods but mostly I'm proud of that funny wire loop to bypass the backdoor hinges.
Says it all really.

How much?

What do you consider to be "along the way" from Devon to (I presume) the Isle of Wight?

Say 100? That would cover my costs for swapping in the M47. I'm actually based in Portsmouth now so I'm a bit more flexible but I would consider "along the way" to be anywhere that doesn't increase my fuel bill by any appreciable amount. If it's unreasonably far out of my way I'd then expect a contribution to the fuel money. Where abouts are you?

I'm in Worcester, and currently dependent on getting a lift; my chauffeur (coo er gosh posh eh?) is happy to rendezvous anywhere along the line of the M4 but not all that keen on going south of it. How does that fit in with you?

If you wanted to meet me at, say, Leigh Dulamore Services on the M4, that's going to be another 1-1.5 hours on my journey and another ~100 miles with faff taken in to account. I'm happy to do it if you're happy to chip in another 40 to cover my fuel etc.

Cheers,

Alex

Still available due to a change in buyer's circumstances.

Delivery available this Sunday between Plymouth and Portsmouth or 30 miles either way.

Still available and taking up space in the front room. Make me an offer before the girlfriend insists I take it for scrap.
