Pensioner's Hot Rod
Starter motor shook itself loose due to traveling at excessive speed.
Wiper motor failed.
Rusty wheel arches needed replacing.
This belonged to a friend of a friend and had been sitting in his garden in Brighton for at least 2 years. It was covered in mildew and the interior stank of rotting flesh.
I paid him £150 for it, put a new battery in, a new set of HT leads, and a bit of air in the tyres and drove it 150 miles back home without incident.
I then added a big single exhaust, some carb upgrades, electronic ignition and had the head skimmed. As a result of this it became very quick for a 1966 Automatic. It was hilarious to drive and sounded great.
Easy to work on, easy to upgrade. Highly recommended, plus the Mark 1 had far superior sheet metal and finish.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
