For Sale: '69 Big Block Brutus!!!
Up for sale is my '69 Bogliq Brutus 427.
A beloved mainstay in my garage for the last seventeen years after my dad bequeathed her to me in his will, I’ve hit hard times and I cannot afford to upkeep this exotic beauty of a land yacht any longer.
Serviced regularly her whole life, this Brutus has a number of optional extras which make all the difference compared to lesser specced cars.
One: 427ci of prime V8. Yup, she’s a real beast with over 200Kw on tap (thanks to the optional, Leeroy Racing triple twin-barrel carbs) yet she’ll run on 91RON unleaded without any modification!
Two: Four speed manual. This Brutus is no mere boulevard cruiser, she’ll romp to 100Km/h in a shade over 7 seconds, hit the quarter at a bit under 16 seconds then top out at a hair under 240Km/h. Pretty badass for 1969…
Three: Four seat conversion. Trimmed in Bogliq’s sand coloured premium velour and woodgrain inserts, this is one nice place to tackle that road trip you’ve got planned and the optional dual-path Leeroy Racing extractor and sidepipe exhaust doesn’t intrude unless you want it to.
Four: Four wheel disc brakes. As per the Euro spec handling package, my dad went all out and had four wheel disc brakes optioned. While I’m not saying she’ll stop on a dime, this Brutus stops straight and clean and only develops fade if you really work 'em hard. Leeroy Racing sells upgrade packages should you want to hit the track. Speaking of the track; Clarkson tested an identically specced car and it ran a 1:35.42… Not bad, not bad at all!
Now let’s get down to brass tacks. It’s still got registration until Dec’ 2017 so you can drive it home and I’ve done a roadworthy check (it passed) so you can get it registered straight away. My price is a firm $12,400. At this price point this is simply the best specced, condition and priced Brutus on the market, let alone a 427 equipped one. Come get yourself a bargain before a classic car dealer buys it and flips for thousands more…
