I bought him from a nice guy looking to pay off student loans. He was gifted the car from his father who was gifted the car from his father. It spent 30 years with the same family and was almost always garaged.
He has a HC 1.8L engine with DCOE manifold and carb setup and 3 sync tranny. Other than that he is very unmolested and unmodified. I am told it should have a 4 sync so someone did something.
The car is very rust free and in pretty good shape. The wire wheels seem true but could really use reconditioning and new rubber. I hope to delay that till next season.
No major plans other than renew all the rubber items under the hood, overhaul the carb, clean up the engine bay and wiring and make it a reliable cruiser. Then just drive it for a (long) while.
Mods - (Nov '15) Swapped in twin SU-HS4 carbs, cleaned up the electrical and engine bay, installed a new stereo (Dec '15) swapped in a used 4-sync tranny. (March '16) swapped in a Mountney stering wheel.
(Aug 16) Swapped in a LH (blue label) OD. Great mod!
