Comments: Bought new as a kit in Oct 1972, first registered 1/1/1973. Monochrome colour was an option and I didn't like the stripes! Extras were an ammeter, Koni SA's and hazard warning lights. Later it got a mild tune, an Ed Winter head and Vegantune VJ5 cams. It was my everyday car for 12 years and was very reliable. It is much travelled in it's 103000 miles. France, Germany, Belgium, italy, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and New Zealand. Repainted and retrimmed about 20 years ago Engine rebuild by John Smirthwaite 2008. Because of the rubbish rubber in the drive shaft couplings, it now has cv joints. Other mechanical stuff replaced as necessary.
