KM200 on Ebay.

"1957 KM200 Australian built glass body kit car. This is a regrettable sale of my unfinished project. The KM's were built in Sydney by Keith Morrison and there were only circa 27 built. A lot of these became race cars and a net search will show quite a lot of information about them.
I have owned this for seven years and was to be a joint project with a couple of close friends. There is still a lot of work to be done although most of the heavier body work is covered, it is a rolling chassis with the body bolted to the chassis. The bonnet needs a lot more attention and flattening and shaping where the original lift out hood has been glassed in and a 'hump' to allow for the rocker cover incorporated.
This example is powered by a 950cc A30 engine (which was a runner) with smooth case Sprite gearbox and MG Midget rear axle. Adjustable coil over shocks all round with bolt on knock on wheel adapters allow the wire wheels to really bring the period lines out. The tilt front is not the original configuration however was a modification prior to my ownership and is perfectly suitable and makes access to the engine easier.
Included with the car is all the components shown which include a second set of used wire wheels, a rough set of Bugeye Sprite seats, A40 Farina rear windscreen which fits the front, heaps of gauges, 4.22 Midget diff centre, MG Midget prop shaft to be modified to fit, hotdog side pipe muffler, new carpet, insulation material, twin SU carbs. three radiators including a new electric fan and lots more"
