I will get the car in June. I ordered a roller (no eng & trans). Options chosen were Wilwood brakes and fuel line kit. As far as the motor goes, I haven't decided. A LS1 or L33 seems the most practical given the tire size limitations, but an LS3 would be cool just because.

 

Specs from the website; including weight, follow...

The Birkin makes approximately 150hp and weighs in the neighborhood of 1200 lbs. I haven't had the car on a dyno or put it on the scale, but drew my conclusion from similarly outfitted Birkins. The car has a stock fuel injected silvertop 2.0L Zetec.

My Birkin is officially for sale...again! I decided to sell my car because I purchased a Stalker V8. I purchased this car in 2009 from a fellow USA7er (Marine7). Since then, I have spent countless hours and a pile of money fixing the car up. Please don't hesitate to send me a PM if you are interested or have any questions. The car is also listed on eBay. Car has approx. 18,200 miles (still driving it). Price is $26,000.

Mike,

 

Fantastic job. You've created a one-of-a-kind car. I know exactly what you started with and the end result is stunning. Good luck with the sale. Lets hear more details on your Stalker as she develops.

Well you picked a great time to sell... when it's still cherry from the rebuild & summertime. It is one of the sweetest 7s out there.

 

Can't wait to see what personal touches you have in store for the Stalker!

I'm sad to see this car up for sale, and even more sad that I can't buy it.

 

Mike, when I first set eyes on this car, I was in awe. It's one of those cars that made an impression on me, and has played a part in many of the decisions I make in my own build. This car will undoubtedly make someone very happy.

 

Good luck with the sale.
