2012 Brunton Stalker Classic


Recommended Posts

For sale is an extremely well-sorted 2012 Brunton Classic Stalker with all of the latest factory safety mods that has been under the mechanical care of Scott Minehart the designer/builder at Stalker cars here in Clearwater, Florida. I am the second owner having purchased it with 2000 miles in January 2017. The car currently has 4900 miles on it and is insured by Hagerty's. It is powered by a L32 Supercharged 3800 GM engine (260 RWH) and monitored by AutoMeter gauges including a WIFI OBD2 sensor that pairs with your phone. The chassis was one of the last 5 classic Stalkers to come out of the factory and was initially assembled by a nationally recognized cabinet/furniture maker in Oklahoma. The builder even clad the interior of the car with aluminum panels and used rare African Babinga wood for the dash The Stalker tilt trailer was also built by Scott Minehart and weighs approximately 550 pounds and is ideal for lightweight pulling (car and trailer have combined weight of only 2000 pounds) and ease of loading. The trailer also has a new matching wheels and spare tire with a custom ball stand made at great expense by a machine shop that you can either secure to your garage floor or simply chalk the trailer wheels for loading/unloading in the garage. The car performs as if it is on rails with an incredible but controllable power to weight ratio. The cockpit is extremely comfortable for a sevenesque car. The car was autocrossed approximately x6 and I have a complete set of wheels/Avon tires if you want to pursue this fun hobby. The following items were completed in 2018:

 

1. 5-Speed T-5 transmission rebuilt with new clutch and throwout bearing

2. Coolant system replumbed for greater efficiency

3.Front suspension set at factory for reduction of bump-steer with new front 600# and rear 300# coils over the GAZ adjustable shocks (250# and 450# included)

4. All fluids changed with another oil change in May 2019 with Mobil 1 synthetic for the high-capacity oil system (7.6 quarts)

5. New front (Wilwood) and rear (GM) brake pads

6. Fuel system catch can added

7. New spark plugs

8. New 5-point Force 5 seat belts installed with current dates on belts

9. New Toyo Proxes R888R tires

10. Custom sail quality tonneau cover and snaps for dry transport/storage

11. The trailer was fitted with newer wheels and new tires

Beautiful car! Looks meticulously built/maintained. Remind me, what are approx hp/torque #'s for that spec engine? And let me be the first to ask what the orange-ish seven-ish vehicle is that we get a glimpse of in one of the garage photos (maybe a trike?).

Kitcat, I think the car puts out about 250 horsepower at the rear wheels. Not sure of the torque but know that you need to start out in 2nd gear all the time except for loading on the trailer. The car weighs 1450 pounds. The whine of the supercharger is intoxicating! If a person wants to autox the car, they MUST use the Avon slicks lest they feel like they are running around on ball bearings. It needs that sticky grip to really perform in the slaloms, etc. The really neat thing about the Stalker is that it has a tendency to self correct if you begin to step out the rear end and will straighten out by just lifting a bit. It makes mediocre drivers like me look halfway decent because it is so forgiving. The burnt orange vehicle to the right is a 2019 Harley Tri Glide Ultra. I just took it on a 2k trip up to Illinois to help a friend of mine get first light on a 45" Newtonian telescope he is building for a customer in France. I have included a picture of me with the scope's temporary truss poles as we got first light last week to test focus and the scopes overall performance.

Thx Bob. My Caterham weighs about that, if not more, when gassed up. My very heavy roll cage and other safety equipment, not to mention the 21 gallon fuel tank, pack on the pounds (roughly 225lbs over stock). But you have 90 more hp:). Someone is going to be very happy with this car.

Well, I can tell you that Suave ain’t happy about the sale. He’s in the toolbox, sulking, and won’t come out. :toetap05:

 

Shane, While Suave is sulking in his toolbox, his evil twin Less Suave is making moon eyes with a Cat and hoping if they have offspring that it will be a cool hybrid 7 with lots of torque.

Shane, while Suave is sulking in his toolbox, all hell broke loose here. Someone, please buy my Stalker before something dire happens to me. Oh no, Mr. Bill went on the rampage and attacked Less Suave. The fight ensued and Pee Wee jumped in to take over the controls of the Cat. It is shear mayhem at Bob's house of wild cars and telescopes!

Am I the only mature duck in this thread? What have you and Shane been smoking? I'd crack on with selling this lovely Stalker if I were you. Sensational color - matches my eyes.

Bob:

 

And here I always thought you were an astrologist:). Who needs a telescope of that spec? Is it for an amateur or a professional star gazer?

 

2000 miles on a trike? Bumpy, hot, noisy? Is it reliable? How does it compare to the Stalker as road transport?

 

In the meantime, looks like mayhem at your place! Your menagerie is clearly protesting this sale. If I were you, I'd head for the basement of the Alamo before it gets any worse!

Very nice,

- Is the feather duster included?

I think Les Suave would squawk a lot. Of course Shane abuses his stork all the time so maybe that is their plight in life?

Abuse of stuffed storks is a common practice in south AR. :jester:

I can't believe it but Les Suave has again convinced me that I cannot sell my lovely Storker. Shane and his stork Suave will likely also have a sigh of relief. I am going to try the latest autox venue and see if I can live with the surface conditions.

 

The Porches have decided to use the venue and they are a picky bunch so I may be making a mountain out of a molehill. When I went and took a peek at the abandoned runway they plan to partially use for the course, I was not too impressed but this might change after I do a few runs? Storkers, even including my evil twin Les, are a lot of fun!
