General Details

Read every line and detail before inquiring.

Offered for sale is a 2019 DF Goblin located in southwest Virginia. The kit was purchased in 2019 and completed in 2020. It is 100% road legal (Inspected, Registered, and Insured) and currently has ~600 miles on the chassis and ~250 on the engine. It is currently self-tuned on 93 octane pump gas with HP Tuners and an AEM wideband at a conservative 12PSI. Drivability is near factory and performance is as expected from such a light machine.

Pictures were taken on 07/04/2021. All stickers have been removed from the hood and wing. Side panels (Powder coated to match) are included but not installed. Additional pictures are available upon request.

I plan to convert the funds from this transaction into an engine for an experimental aircraft build. The mileage will increase as I do drive it on nice days. More information and a complete bill of materials can be found in the links below. I will gladly drive you around in it, but no solo test drives until a purchase agreement has been signed. For serious inquiries and all questions, contact me directly.

It is registered through a Montana LLC. The buyer will be presented with a Montana title, Bill of Sale, the donor vehicle title & BoS, along with any other miscellaneous documentation I have.

Please view the links below for a detailed Bill of Materials, build thread, and a few YouTube videos.
This Goblin is offered at the no-haggle price of $35,000 and available immediately. I derived this number from the cumulative cost of BoM parts, minus 10%, then rounded up to the nearest thousand. The BoM does not account for any build/research hours or include shipping/tax on parts. No trades.

Oh. My. Gawd. The build quality here is off the charts. That is so nice. I'm counting my pennies here - if only I didn't have one half-done in the garage right now. You're even located on the correct coast. Daaaaaamn.

Sometimes it's more fun to build something than it is to drive it. I've done this to almost every project car I've had. I get it.

Good luck with the sale, your build is legit. It would be nice to see a goblin go for more than $10k, especially a build as nice as this.

That is definitely something I contend with. I love tinkering, even to the point of frustration sometimes. Lol.
