Tribute 250 swb kalifornia
 
Anyone happen to know of a Tribute 250 kal that might be for sale either now or in the near future.

Looking to buy one but I don’t have the space to build one from scratch.

If anyone knows of one please drop me a PM.

Cheers

John

No I havenít, good shout though Iíll give them a ring

Thanks for all the responses.

I should probably clarify I am really looking for a light project here, so a car that is panelled up and road worthy that needs finishing.

I passed on one recently on eBay, a 2.8 that was on the road but needed painting and finishing, interior etc.. with hindsight should have probably bought that one but didnít.

So something along those lines.

Was that the red one on ebay ?

Hi,

This is a service that the guys at ClassicCoachWorks would be open to discuss with you.

They do kit only, partial and full builds. And have a 250 cabriolet that they built as a demonstrator.

They are currently moving business premises so been a tad busy but will be very open to a contact.

Thanks

Dave

It was on eBay, there were two at the time, one which was in red gelcoat, which is the one I probably should have bought and the other was a really nice looking car painted red, looked really good in the pictures but unfortunately it had been built on a cat C, which for me ruled it out.

That red gel cost one was cheap at 10k. Door gaps needed sorting

Lucky@LeMans 31st October 2019 17:35

Door gaps are the hardest part of the build, especially those front edges !!

Yep I thought so but unfortunately I was on holiday in the South of France when it came up and it was 200 miles from my home when I got back so didnít have time to go down to look at it before it sold.

Such is life!

Check out ebay item 233390312733. Based around a very low mileage 2.8 donor. Looks to be a very well built example.

Why?

2020 Bump

Still looking to buy one of these if anyone is thinking of selling or knows of one coming up or sale. Convertible only, finished or project.

I have seen the one on eBay at the moment but its built on a CAT C so a non starter for me and not cheap.
