This very cool looking car has been rebuilt over the last 20 years with much work done in the last 12 months to get it all ship shape and ready to roll. I do not have a complete history of the car but what follows is what I know or have surmised.
Firstly this is not a true convertible but has a professionally made hood and no hard top. The odo is in miles.
At some stage (late 1990's??) this car has had the body work professionally restored and repainted. In 2001 at around 112000 miles the engine was fully reconditioned. My friends bought this car in 2003 when it had 111189 miles showing on the clock (I know it doesn't add up, maybe had a new speedo fitted?) While they owned it they replaced the fuel pump and brake master cylinder. The car wasn't used a lot but was bought out on sunny weekends and on other special occasions. Most of the time it sat in a shed. In 2012 my friend was diagnosed with incurable cancer. She put the car in the shed and returned home to Austria for treatment. In 2016 she died. Her husband gave the car to me to get roadworthy and sell and put the money towards treatment for my daughter (­orth-living) who also has incurable cancer :-(
In the last 12 months I have, replaced all brake slave cylinders, shoes and the drums on the rear. Sorted out the birds nest of wiring behind the dash. Replaced the diff output seals and bearings, replaced the driveshaft universal joints and fitted a prof. rebuilt gearbox. I have tuned the carburetor and timing and fitted a new battery. Yesterday it got a WOF and 12 month reg.
The car is not in original concourse condition. The paint has a few chips, the front seats are not original (but were fitted in the late 90's so don't need certs)and the heater is always on. It doesn't really like more than 80km/h. But who does on a sunny day. This car is easy to start and drives well. It looks cool and is fun to drive with the top down and is a perfect around town car. It is cheap to fuel and register.
