Needs work: This is a 30+ year old Brittish car. All of these cars are projects. The only issues I have had are below. Carb. Passed smog a couple moths ago. and failed CA smog last week. Running rich and having a hard time at higher RPM's. 1st gear can be quirky to get into; clutch in. 2nd to 1st always works for me.
