I've owned this car since 1987. and purchased it with about 45k miles on it. Current odometer is 67k.

Since I have owned it. I have made the following modifications:

1.       Installed Fairey overdrive

2.       Installed 2 barrel Weber carburetor

3.       Installed exhaust header

4.       Installed Fairey capstan winch  ( drives off crankshaft )

5.       Installed new fuel tank

6.       Installed new clutch including throw out and pilot bearings

Recent work on the car  (about $15k) was performed in the fall of 2012 by DAP Enterprises. They went through the complete car to find any faults. The highlights of their work follow. Many other little things were done (very well I might add). Less than 500 miles have been driven since.

1.       Stripped body. repaired corrosion around rear fender rivets.  isolated rivets. repainted. There was and never has been any collision damage.

2.       Installed new rear crossmember

3.       Complete service of engine

4.       New wheel cylinders

5.       New swivel seals

6.       New tires

7.       New tire rod ends

8.       New transfer case input and output seals

9.       New pinion seals

10.    New parabolic springs and shocks

After I got the car back. a shopping cart scratched the passenger door. I took it to a local bodyshop and had the door repainted. While the color match is close. it is not perfect in certain lights.

Otherwise. the car looks and runs great. Everything works as it should. Interior is in great shape. no rips or tears.  Other than surface rust underneath. there is no corrosion or rust in the frame. cross members or dumb irons. New front mats during 2012 service. I don't use it enough anymore to justify keeping it.
