Not to bad then. Don't think there are many decent second hand ones here floating about

The nice thing about being out here is smaller chance of rust on parts like the doors - especially inland cars.

More for the sake of record keeping, as well as a time scale of when things were done :

Just interesting to see how untouched this car is - still has brass washers on the bonnet hinges :

Well, I decided to take the head off the 'S' motor today to see exactly what we have underneath. Looks to be a GTS head :

IMG_20151215_121714_zpsewmqi2wn.jpg
 
The bores are good and clean, no ridges. Also looks to be standard bore from the quick measurements we took :

And the gearbox, with laygear 22G927, so nothing fancy :

Lastly, the cam we're thinking of using in the car at some stage :

It's looking good, nice to see it hasn't been messed around with too much either.

That's what I really like about this car. Can't wait to take the subframes off to see what I find.

Well, it's been a little while since any work has been done. I only realised today that I hadn't tried the boot badge on :

Also, the car now looks like this :

That shell still looks so good. Only the roof lining left now?
