A great toy.. all fun always
It seems like nothing has gone wrong with it, but I suppose 34 years can dull ones memory. I know I've replaced both master cylinders, had starter and alternator rebuilt, stripped out the smog crap, replaced some exhaust pieces and had electronic points installed. Otherwise just changing oil annually, and occasional tune-ups (every four or five years).
We love it. The car has NEVER failed to start. It could use fresh paint and the interior is a little tatty, but it's totally rust free and the wire wheels are tight and true. The original top is still very serviceable and looks fine. None of the dreaded Lucas electrical problems have ever occurred. Even in its DULL condition, it gets lots of attention whenever we take it out. I never have used this car as primary transportation which most certainly has influenced my opinion of the car. On the rare occasion that something wore out, I'd just put it away until I had some free time. Parts availability is never a problem and prices are reasonable. There were several Sports Car manufacturers in '72, I feel I was very fortunate to have gone British. A true Sports car through and through.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
