I may arrange to pop and look at this one as it is dangerously close to home.

I can then pass on any information to any interested parties... I don't think I should take this on...

Give me three good reasons why not?

Wife....Daughter and space to keep (although I am working on this!)

Not sure if 1500 auto is the best combo either?

I do like Carmine though......

I went to have a look at this yesterday.

In summary, it was generally sound. Very good at the front end - wings, valances etc. Chassis legs were all good.
Would benefit from cills, doors were very average and boot floor and inner rear arches would require repair.

Nearside rear wing has had a repair and has rotted out from around the swage line near the fuel filler.

It hasn't been run for around 2 years and has been stored outside under a cover.

Originally purchased to re-shell a Sprint, but project abandoned. Would probably still be a good donor vehicle.


Kind Regards

MC

I'll accept space as one good reason ;-), as for wife and daughter, it's surely in their blood?

That's interesting rot under the fuel cap, don't think I've seen one go like that before.
