Hi guys, Its finally happening. Reluctantly I am putting my Dolomite up for sale. A lot of work has been done on her to get her solid a roadworthy.

Shes a 1500 HL with a genuine 58k on the clock and 11 months MOT. 4 previous owners and was off the road since 91 when I rescued her.
Ive spent a fair wack on her (all receipts present) and shes completely solid. Work done includes : 2 new chassis legs , some floor repairs , and arch repairs , subframe and axle axle blasted and painted , shes fully poly bushed all round . New brake lines , braided flexyi hoses , re sealed calipers with new pads , new shoes , wheel cylinders , CMC , BMC , CSC . Carbs both cleaned with new gaskets and new float valves. new fuel pipes , replacement tank , restored powder coated sprint wheels with new wheel nuts and tyres , and a set of rimmers uprated 1" springs. The underside is all undersealed and the top seals stonechip painted . Engine has had a new fuel pump , plugs , condensor , points etc . The list of things done/replaced goes on.

There are bits outstanding for her to be complete - The lower dash shelf is not fitted and a couple of bits of trim are missing , Ive also got a steering poly bush that I havent got round to fitting , the under arch trims need refitting also and the airbox hasnt been refitted as I was planning to do this when she was fine tuned. Feel free to ask any questions , I just want her to go to a good home - Shes by far not a mint Dolomite and could ideally do with a respray to be really nice but shes fairly presentable.

Thanks

Jim

Picking this one up tomorrow, needs a few bits doing but a very nice car. Credit to the current owner. We will need a few bits and pieces, so I will join the club. And will be asking lots of questions.
Regards Allan
