In summary

A great every daily driver. with no rust or body issues. paint looks good but would not class as concourse. Could do with cutting back in places to get a better finnish. And the doors could do with re adjusting for a better fit to the bonnet. General detailing etc its very good but room for improvement in some areas.

Further improvements and get the carbs set up and tuned etc and it a unleaded head.  But starts easily hot or cold and very usable. Only covered a few hundred miles since completion.

Note. this car is fitted with a twin pipe sports exhaust from the Triumph Sports 6 Club. this being a 6 cylinder. the engine sounds great with the deep throated note.

 

First MOT for 14 years completed without any advisories. valid until Feb 2015. Tax exempt and classic insurance.

Please bare in mind this is a 45 year old classic.
