Really fast and really fun to drive
Recently, after I bought the car, the engine started to show huge signs of wear. After discovering that it was nearly impossible to tune the twin su’s to run together well, I then stuck in a dual throat carburettor off a Datsun 260c, which didn’t help very much.
I then worked out that it needed a complete rebuild, and that it would cost in excess of $6,000.00. I decided that it would be a better and a more reliable car if I put a different motor in, which was a Holden VP Commodore motor and gearbox. This has improved the power of the car dramatically.
The differential in the car was a bit funny, if you could call it that, so I have a rebuilt one ready to put in when this one gets over the hill.
The car is a really good car to drive and really fun. You can drive it like a real sports car, which takes a bit of work, or like a standard car with less work.
I have rebuilt the car so that it is rust free, after I removed all the rust and put a cover of body filler on the whole car to remove the rivets. I haven’t had a lot of rust for the 5 years that I have owned it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
