This is one of those cars that are a rarity, not just because Maxxums aren't out there in big numbers, but also because of the radical design. There have been only very few front wheel drive buggies: Very unfortunate, as it's a very interesting concept in my opinion.
Anyway, I got this car in semptember 2010 for 60 euros. The base of the car was decent, but the car did need a lot of attention. My intention was to restore it for running. This however never happened. The restoration came to a halt when my father's Dremel was lost around the time when I wanted to finish trimming the body... So the car and the parts sat waiting in a box, until this Monday.
As happy as I am to see it finished, I feel pretty sad about it too. I only finished the restoration to put it on sale soon, as I don't have the resources to buy electronics for it.
The car has a good spec: new rubber sealed bearings, new stabilizer set, new Ultima gear set (which don't have the nasty soft aluminum gear but a plastic one), new repro body and repro decals, new repro gear cover, new outdrives, used but good condition universal shafts, no broken parts and all scuffed/scratched parts were restored as far as possible.
Apart from that, as spares I also have a new original gear cover, a spare new repro gear cover, new wheels, new shock towers, new bumpers, new steering parts and the parts that I replaced for the restoration. Even though it is certainly not new, this thing looks great on the shelf. :) However, the future buyer would not have to feel worried to run this car either!
PS: This car has been sold.
