Cimbria SS On Craigslist

There is a Cimbria SS On Craigslist as I type this post. It is definitely a project car bust from what the listing says it is a 1 owner car and was a built and driving vehicle long ago. The price is a bit high in my opinion for this car, but if you can get it for the right price it would be a cool one to have. Just keep in mind that these cars have not been made in many years and things like the windshield cant be purchased at your local auto glass superstore.

The seller is looking for $4500 or best offer. http://kansascity.craigslist.org/cto/5070816328.html

    Don’t they share the same windshield with the Sebring/Sterling ?

    • Donnie says:

      Something tells me they were similar but not exact. From the sterling website…

      “Windshield for an original Sterling Sports car. We have them specially made. Dot approved curved glass, laminated safety glass. Now with black boarder to hide glue and top tint. Will work with Sebring”

      But at $800 its a pretty expensive item

        Like with the Bradley GT 2 . Those were a custom deal. I’ve got a Kelmark GT they use a Pinto windshield not very expensive but the shipping is.

    Actually, one of our club members took it upon himself to have the windshields replicated for his own SS. So.. yes, they are available, but only for the SS. And you’ll need to be willing to pay for it – roughly $1700 with shipping anywhere in the US. The Sterling windshields will not fit without some serious fiberglass work.

    I do not recall why but I was under the impression that is was a cut down sterling windscreen, I was also told by a couple people the cim screens were crack prone due to the frame design….;-(

    O yes crack prone ! It may b possible to use lexon sheet as pattern it will flex a certain amount and of course you can fan heat were the bending is necessary. More or less art work, don t get to close to the plex with heat burns are most likely. If you have a high heat gun moving fast you may find this to work may need buddy and several heat sources but its alot less cost and will provide you safety as used at the track. I was told a !New glass cost at 1200 plus labor and of course a gasket at 80 more so easy 1500 cash. I prefer the lexon yet states may not allow it for street use. A shame puts the project at risk cost above reasonable making it less competive. Another idea in the first place the dash should be highly secured to body proper braces attached to the fiber bodys securely mounting the areas around the glass. This is why it cracked with twisting and road conditions as they are no wonder glass brakes. Use of silicone is a good material to include at all points. This small amount of flex can save u money. A lot of full glass kits are suffering from the cracking its all on the quality of the build creativity insight and good common sense we have seen many abandoned projects, Cumbria is not alone in this.
