Been searching eBay gumtree etc for months for a Sprint, wanted one with O/D and a sunroof. Found one that ticked all the boxes. Bar the colour, was really after a blue or red one this one is light yellow (Honeysuckle).

Built in 1976, runs and drives very well. Big file of history with it. Its got a webasto sunroof overdrive and a LSD diff (only just found this out). It's running on a genuine set of Minilities, I have a set of Sprint alloys to fit, again from eBay.

Welcome, I saw that car on ebay for quite a while, it's a good price & was surprised it did not sell quicker.

Nice surprise finding it has a LSD.
