Past work.

Previous owner had gearbox re-conditioned, new radiator and new rack fitted.

I had the car off the road from 2001 toabout 2007 during which time I replaced the lower 6 inches (or so) of bodywork all round the car. Had re-spray. Had leather panels replaced where cracked, and most of chrome work re-chromed. Overall intention was to return to presentable condition rather than concours. Changed to FBO electronic ignition.

Future Projects:

I still have to finish the parcel shelves (under the dashboard), but not sure if/when I will get round to doing.

Not used last year as much as I would like. I changed the electronic ignition from the FBO system, which had let me down twice,  to one based on an HEI module. This has performed fine so far.

Hi Steve,

I attach another couple of photos of my Mk 1. Reason being that I bit the bullet and changed the wheels from the Wolfrace (or similar) alloys that I got with the car back to refurbished Rostyles. I was quite happy with the look of the alloys but the (205/70) tyres would rub on the wheel arches if I had more than just me in the car (and I had taken back the return in the arch as much as I dared). The Rostyles are narrower rims and are fitted with 185 tyres. There seems plenty of clearance now.
