    Hawk Stratos for Sale

    It's a 'garden find':

    Hawk HF

    It's a Spyder chassis.
    Q reg. would suggest a proper registration?

    I think you're right Paul.
    A secondhand Stratos replica project is a rare thing these days. Long waiting lists for new kits, and the price of new kits being out of reach for some people should help it sell?

    I think it'll run to the end - there seem to be a lot of people interested and bidding so far.

    Obviously it's going to need a complete strip down and rebuild. I'd be amazed if the engine was salvageable, the supercharger rotor are probably badly corroded by now if it's stood outside for years. I'd recommend taking it off first to check front and back before attempting to turn it. Tolerances are tight and moving the rotors could cause serious damage. If it looks okay get it to a specialist for a strip and rebuild.

    I'd also be a little concerned about the state of the chassis at the back, there's surface corrosion on the engine cage and, unless it was waxoyled I'd be checking the state of the spine, upper rear chassis rails and front lower wishbone mounts. Hopefully the suspension isn't seized as removal of the front upper wishbone can be probelmatic.

    Obviously needs a screen and also paint and wiring. Probably a V6 too. All rubber pipes are probably perished and the brakes beyond saving?

    On the plus side being registered it won't need to go through IVA. Presumably all the parts are there and the waiting list is less than a week?

    Value? I'd guess in the 8-10k range but the market is going to decide that.

    I think it was 3500 odd when I started typing the post!

    As on the other thread - I thought 8-10K would be a bit on the light side - 9600 a few hours on - My guess is that it will go quiet at about 12K but has the potential to go to 15-17 at the end of the auction.

    'Up to 10,100.00 now...

    I wonder if this is an 'amnesty' car?
    Unless actually registered as a 'Transformer' in 1988.
    Surely most pre SVA/amnesty cars were still on Beta V5s?
