Good evening all,
After purchasing my Dolomite at the end of last year (Thread for that one below) i have been bitten by the bug & always on the look out for more!
One evening when sat searching through ebay i came across this lovely looking Pageant blue Dolomite 1500 (1981). The car looked very original and tidy in the pictures. The car has 3 previous owners (all in the same family) and only covered 31,000 miles from new. However it has been off the road for 18 years, But thankfully dry stored!
I went the collect the car yesterday & was absolutely amazed at the condition, The car is 99.9% rust free! It is also extremely original and is a please to look at.
I have had a good look over the car today and had all the brakes etc apart. The list of things required before MOT time is as follows:
Full service inc all filters, Gearbox & diff oils etc
Replacement front & rear brake flexi hoses
Replacement front brake pads
Replacement coolant hoses
Replacement carb fuel hoses
Exhaust rubbers & gaskets
Electronic ignition kit
The plan with this one is to keep it as original as possible & give it some love. It will be staying within the family so will not be sold on. And i get to enjoy having 2!!
I will keep updated (Pics below from collecting in the pouring down rain!
