|4 Door 1965 Light Blue Saloon|
|2 Door 1968 Green Saloon|
Built out of left over parts , this one currently has no passenger seat ( will be supplied from the re-upholsterers ) , and has sustain offside front impact damage to wing where I drove it into a brick pillar by my garage. The nearside front suspension needs lowering and I am told that the offside rear spring needs replacing as it is flat. There is further impact damage to the offside where a speeding pizza moped impacted , this needs internal straighening to make perfect and the door slight beating back into shape , all easy , but time consuming work.

I had a van and sold it , got bored so got this one , runs around to car boots , again a non runner when acquired , a replacement gearbox has been fitted and it generally runs ok , has MOT , but needs front brakes cleaning and re balancing ( a service item on a minor of any description really ) and the rear chassis is bent up on one side , so needs expert handling , is worth it for the mechanics and the solid body and front end for the real person with time , although an adequate runner for local work no problem. Again no passenger seat , needs stuffing .
|4 Door 1960 Saloon|
With its original number plate and clipper blue paintwork ( which needs a good polish ) , the detractions are the 948 engine - its third , this really needs replacement with a 1098 , the 948 just cannot cope with motorway ( or the A3 ) life. The doors are breaking out in rust , I would replace on a rolling basis and use them to refurbish the light blue one above. The carpet is non-orginal , I still have most of the old carpet and have replaced the dynamo with an alternator as this one has always had problems in starting. An electrics renewal and proper replacement of the brake master cylinder ( the refurb lockheed item just is not good enough ) also the rear dampers need repair or replacment for a little less lively ride. Again one of the leather seats is removed , but will be avalible after repair.
