Nearly five grand on a pinto. Hope that produces a lot of horsepower. Are all the build photos included, I am sure the iva man will want to see them. I paid 2300 pound for a correctly registered series 7 with a redtop engine producing about 160 horsepower. Granted it was (and still is) a bit tatty but at least I didn't have to worry about getting my collar felt for having an illegal car. If he had run into somebody and the insurance company had found that it wasnt correctly tested he would have got nothing and the same for the person he hit. Walk away, there are plenty of good cars about elsewhere. They often come up on this forum and the beauty of it is that several people can often vouch for their history.
You don't have to fall out with him over it just tell him that this isn't the way you want to start out in kit cars. You will find plenty of things to tinker with without this extra hassle
