I'm curious why you think it's being banger raced. Have I missed something?
I can think of few cars with bodywork less resilant to the rigours of BR.

He seems to be into Minis and has a reference to a Granada banger he sold some time ago in his feedback, you could be right Christian.

I don't think this car is in any danger of suffering from banger racing as the owner seems to realise that these are somewhat "fragile" and really not suitable for this strange hobby. I have asked for photographs of the car as all he has, apparently, is the engine and gearbox.
A coach built car wouldn't last 30 seconds in a banger race.
It's amazing what that crowd will pay for a perfectly good A 60 BMC model, over £1000 just to race it on a banger track. I REALLY don't understand their mentality

Hi,

I wonder if the engine being sold is out of the Empress that was for sale recently with a replacement engine and gearbox in it?

John Nash tried to buy the complete car from this guy but the Daimler Hooper Empress will be banger raced.
