Make an offer or just purchase this great upscale Brit sports car. Beats a MGB by hands down, no comparison, a gentile and refined specimen of 70’s sport car.

  I purchased the car about 1o to 12 years ago and have been doing work on and off for a few years. Since the car only had 38,000 miles on it it was in  good shape. I bought it down in southern Pa from a man who didn’t have the time or the knowledge to work on the car and so it just sat in his garage under a tarp and was piled up with bicycles.

 

Now it is time to move this car along as I am working on a BRONCO, 1967 and I am not using the car.

Here is the following work I have done on the car: I removed all of the old yellow paint and repainted it with the same factory yellow, Since the car had been Z-Barted (with the plastic plugs still in place) there was very little rust around, and was easily taken care of. I have replaced the rubber steering bushings and the  ball joints. The engine ran rough and was a constant problem until I cleaned the Stromberg carbs and added electronic ignition. (wonderful difference) now it is very smooth, accelerates nicely and runs great, sounds great. I replaced the header pipes and all of the exhaust before the muffler. I added a new dark brown carpet kit with sound deadener,  and a new Panasonic radio with CD player. I have redone the trunk area (again no rust) with black carpet (looks good) and painted the engine area. Red Line Michelin tires are installed and were pricey but they were the tire of choice on the original.  The bumpers are original and the rubbers that stick out are like new. Replaced the oil filter with the MOSS easy screw on type. Oil and fluids change every 2000 miles by self.

The Top and boot  look good and there was a rip in the top near the side but I fixed it so that the eye does not see it, The rear vinyl windows are good no cracks and can be seen through easily, as I keep the top down all year, it really does not matter.

The rear view outside mirror is new. The sun visors are good but there is a small crack in dash vinyl that is easily repaired. The overdrive works perfect and makes a difference in the fast lane. This car will cruise all day at 80mph. The oil pressure reads to the top when cold and above the mid mark (50lbs) when warm. The car does not overheat, always dependable. Just flushed radiator and replaced all engine and heater hoses. All of the brake and clutch cylinders are recent as well as wheel cylinders. Rocker panels replaced in 2017 and any other rust taken out and repaired. Painted with Lemon -Lime factory color and clear coated.

This car is not a perfect car but could very easily become one, it sure is a driver and a head turner. Love the color. I have done long road trips through the Appalachian mountains and gone to Florida and the Key West.
