Blue 1977 Special Series (off road since1986) 3 years 11 months ago #36894

Hi Edmund, sorry about the delay in my reply but it's been a busy summer :unsure:

The car has been sleeping in a dry barn under a cover for many years but one day I'll get it back on the road. Unfortunately I have a number of other cars needing TLC but once it sees daylight I will send you some photos.

Thanks for the photos you posted by the way. I have to say I don't think it's changed that much but the ansa was removed before I bought it. Nik lived in Ilminster so that ties in with your Taunton link.

After 2 years or so in a shipping container, the car is now near my house in a lock-up, arriving via the Barn Finds stand at the Practical Classics Restoration Show at the NEC. After a bit of discussion and some time to look round the car, it seems likely this will end up being dismantled for spares, and I’ll look for a better car for the road. Must be a 1300, though.

Great photos on the show thread, is it too far gone to save?

It’s very rotten. I’m going to strip it down and fully assess it, but every panel needs work, most of them quite a lot of work. I don’t mind it being uneconomical to repair (I expected that) but there are degrees of lunacy.

There are a couple of biits I would be interested in, if you do end up breaking it.
Front grill and engine covers spring to mind, I'm sure there will be others
Thanks, H
